CrossFit Chiang Mai was the first CrossFit affiliate to open in Thailand when there were only a handful of CrossFit affiliates in Asia. Taking advantage of Thailand's climate, our gym is designed to be open air, with fans for cooling, and a translucent canopy to keep off the rain and let in light. We hang a flag for every member or visitor, and are loosing count of the number of countries represented in our gym! The community of CrossFit Chiang Mai is international and diverse, with people from all walks of life and backgrounds.
