Grab also operates on Koh Samui but they’re aren’t as many drivers as in other places in Thailand, so you may be forced to wait a while. Getting a traditional taxi in Koh Samui is often faster.

How to Choose a Fitness Retreat in Thailand

Picking the right fitness retreat is an important and very personal choice. Choose wrong and you’ll dump a load of money into unsuitable training or a camp environment you don’t enjoy. But choose right and you’ll have a transformative experience that will pay off every day for the rest of your life! 

Location

Decide where you want to train before looking too deeply into camps. If you want a quiet, off-the-beaten-track spot, choosing a fitness camp on Phuket’s fitness street would be a mistake – it’s busy, loud and right on the well-worn wellness trail in Thailand. Instead, look for a camp somewhere more isolated and lesser visited by tourists. 

Whether you’re looking to train in the jungle, jog along golden beaches or be surrounded by fitness fanatics, you’ll find a location that ticks your boxes in Thailand! 

Training Plans 

While many fitness retreats in Thailand offer similar training plans, some specialise more than others. Most offer Muay Thai, weight loss and general fitness packages but if you want to train a specific discipline or have unique needs that need to be catered to, do you research on exactly what each camp offers before booking! 

Facilities

Most Thai fitness retreats on our list are packed with great facilities. But not all were created equal. If you’re an advocate for an ice bath or sauna after your workout, make sure your retreat of choice has these facilities!

Activities 

Getting fit isn’t only about working up a sweat, you need time off for your body and mind to recover too. More off-the-beaten-track camps can make exploring the local area a challenging but rewarding experience, while other camps are just a stone’s throw from lively towns and tourist hotspots. 

It’s also worth considering how sociable you want to be during your fitness journey. While most camps create a sense of friendship and camaraderie between customers, not all arrange group excursions and social activities for your days off.

Price

While significantly cheaper than comparable camps in the US and Europe, a fitness retreat in Thailand will still set you back more than an average backpacking trip around the country. The camps on our list are all mid-range and should be affordable for most travellers. We’ve not included the cheapest camps because the quality and customer experience just isn’t on par! 

Length of Stay

Have a good idea of how long you plan to train before you book – and prepare to extend if you love it. It’s super common for customers to book one month but stay for three or four! While camps have no problem with this, they won’t always have room to accommodate extensions. It’s often worth booking a week or two longer than initially planned if you have the time! After all, it’s a long way to come to cut off your progress in its prime!

Accommodation 

Camp accommodation can vary from shared dorms to flashy penthouse apartments and bungalows. Most camps offer an array of accommodation options, so you’ll find something suitable. Just be aware, the nicer the accommodation, the higher the price! 


Fitness Camps In Thailand FAQs 

Are workout boot camps worth it?

If you want a distraction-free experience, so you can focus on your fitness, then workout boot camps are absolutely worth it. You’ll work hard, and as long as you’re committed to your goals, see results!

What is a fitness training camp?

A fitness training camp is a training program designed to help you achieve the most from yourself. They mostly take place in a group setting, with some one-on-one tuition provided. The most encompassing include accommodation and meal plans. 

Is a boot camp better than a gym?

A boot camp is more inclusive than just using a gym. If you want to focus on only your training, make new friends and enjoy the challenge, a boot camp is for you. But if you don’t have much time, or are very self-motivated, visiting a gym may be enough.

What happens at a fitness boot camp?

Fitness bootcamps and retreats vary but you can expect to work hard. The day will be structured around working out, usually with multiple exercise classes running around the clock. Some retreats will expect you to be in every available class, while others allow a little more rest time. Many offer meal plans, accommodation, recovery aids (massages, spas, ice baths, etc.) and social activities too.


A Round-Up of Fitness Camps in Thailand

No matter whether you’re looking to train at a professional level, increase your athleticism or take the first tentative steps along your fitness journey, you’ll find a retreat in Thailand that offers what you need. From amazing beachside gyms to off-the-beaten-track jungle retreats, fitness camps in Thailand can be found in any location – and at a much nicer price than in Europe or the USA! 

And remember, it’s not all about what you do at the camp. A truly life-altering experience is all about the mentality and training techniques you take home and keep with you for the rest of your life! 

So, what are you waiting for? Change your life and book your Thai fitness retreat now!
