Move over Seminyak – Canggu is officially the place to stay in Bali. What was once a sleepy seaside village is now routinely referred to as the “Brooklyn of Bali.” The neighbourhood offers a vibrant mix of surf breaks, rice fields, trendy cafes, funky street art and an endless supply of Instagrammable smoothie bowls. Besides tanned surfers and tattooed hipsters, Canggu is attracting a very health conscious crowd looking to stay fit and fabulous even while on holiday. Here are the best gyms in Canggu, plus six Canggu villas which offer every fitness buff’s dream: a private gym of your very own.

Gyms in Canggu

After spending just five minutes in any Canggu café, you’ll notice that the local crowd is a very toned bunch (and very partial to Daisy Dukes and barely-there tops). It comes as little surprise that new gyms and fitness centres seem to be popping up on the daily. Here are five of the best gyms in the ‘Gu.

S2S Fitness

As you might have guessed by the name, S2S CrossFit is dedicated to all things CrossFit. In fact, S2S prides itself for being the first CrossFit affiliate in Bali. Besides a well-equipped gymnasium, this gym in Canggu offers daily classes in CrossFit and mobility, with the first classes starting bright and early at 7am. S2S CrossFit believes in delivering serious results, so you can expect a very rigorous workout where you really feel that famous burn. If you’re staying further down south, S2S CrossFit also has another outlet in Jimbaran.
