Irish couple’s Thai fitness boot camp will help you shed the pounds

One of the first things you notice when you arrive at FitKoh is the positive energy. After spending two weeks here with their Fitness Premium program, it became clear why it is so widely referred to as the “happy place”.

At first, I was worried that two weeks would be too long to come alone as a solo traveler, but I would have happily stayed an extra month if I could.

Founded by an Irish couple, Tony Olin and Hannah Montague, in 2016, FittKoh is much more than a fitness camp. What started as a stand-alone gym built next to a field surrounded by water buffalo almost 10 years ago has grown into what is now a dream playground for adults.

Facilities include a gym, two restaurants, a newly renovated beach cafe and gym, seafront ice baths, a massage room, a newly built paddle club with 3 courts, two swimming pools and 30 Thai-style bungalows to accommodate your guests. during your stay.

Located in a small secluded resort in the north of Koh Samui, FitKoh is like a mini-village with all the facilities and bungalows located within walking distance of each other. If you are looking for a key place for a healthy start and mental reset, away from the hustle and bustle of the bigger centers, its location is perfect for you.

There’s no alcohol-free party temptation on-site, with a super-chilled island-life feel… and if you feel like letting your hair down, the party spots of Chaweng and Lamai are only 30 minutes by car. far away.

After the facilities, the biggest appeal of FitKoh is definitely the sense of community and the positive environment. They have a strict no-ego policy and the overall atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. Wherever you go, you are greeted with greetings and sawadikas. The entire staff, coaches and surrounding community radiate positive vibes.

Plus, the way they’ve set up the facilities around the grounds means you really don’t need to leave during your stay here…except maybe a pedicure if your toes have taken a beating from all the exercise ! Around the gyms and restaurants there are a number of great places to hang out that encourage everyone to socialize and most people end up making lots of new friends. Honestly, it’s like a summer camp for adults, with most first-timers coming alone and a large number of returning guests.
