So, if you’re a travelling fitness fanatic there’s no need to worry about letting go of your routine. There are world-class training facilities of every sort scattered around the areas of Seminyak, Legian and Canggu. Read on to get the inside word on where to work out and what to wear at these top fitness spots.

Bob Breen is a New Zealander who’s been living in Bali for many years and runs Seaside Fitness in Legian. This is a smaller gym where you can get personal service if you’re recovering from injury or looking for some strength and conditioning. Seaside holds a boot camp on Saturday mornings and Bob’s also well known by expats to be a top-notch boxing coach.

Hammerhead Gym

One of the larger gyms in Bali, Hammerhead is popular with weightlifters and bodybuilders looking to maximise their gains. The music is loud, the weights are heavy and you’ll be guaranteed a good workout. The gym has a great view of the sunset and though it’s a busy space they have plenty of workout stations and different classes for athletes of every type.

It’s a good spot for couples with different fitness goals. You can get a tough workout, a yoga class and then throw in some pampering at the end of your session.

Daily Gym

They call Daily Gym the temple of fitness and you’ll be impressed with their multi-level, professional outfit. The trainers are friendly, the classes are small and intimate and the location is handy. There’s plenty of equipment, a well-sprung boxing ring and bags for fans of striking but there’s also cardio machines and weights upstairs for strength and conditioning. Daily offers specialised training programmes for men and women and with its laid-back atmosphere, we think it’s a winner.
