About Us

S2S is one of the first gyms in Canggu and the first CrossFit affiliate in Bali. S2S stands for Strength to Strength. We endeavour to take you on a journey from one success to a higher level of success – from Strength to Strength.

Established in January 2013, we have a mission to introduce an effective training program in a judgment free, fun, and welcoming environment. A place where you can feel like you belong no matter where you’re from. We want to hear your story, get to know you, help you reach your goals.

We run our WODs (workout of the day) in multiple places – our gym, soccer field, or the beach which is only a few minutes away from our gym. Every session we run is well thought out because your wellbeing is our number one priority.

Stronger

The ability to apply muscular force to do real physical work.

Fitter

The ability to move large loads, long distances, quickly, and in the broadest variety of domains.

Together

S2S accomplishes these things in the context of a community that feels like family.
