If you want to get fit and have fun, this is for you
Mar 2020 • Couples
Was only supposed to train for 1 month, but ended up staying for 2.

This training camp on fitness street is unreal. The staff are awesome and completely push you to your limits.

There are classes that cater for all fitness levels and it’s just great, something for everyone.

Best overall fitness gym in Phuket
Feb 2020
Unit 27 is where you go to get the best results. I’ve used other gyms on Fitness Road, and they are no match. You can take as many classes as you want here, on the hour and every hour from 7am to 5-6pm every weekday and 7am to noon on weekends. There’s even an app where you can reserve classes in advance. After staying here a month, I have some constructive criticism for the business. The app is not well optimized for iOS. It’s extremely slow and the user interface is terrible. Also, the green turf for the sleds needs to be replaced. Finally, when the classes entail “punishments” for all participants, the instructors need to be considerate of language barriers. There were countless times when non-English speaking people didn’t understand or follow instructions. As a result, everyone gets punished, and then they get all bent out of shape with the “offenders” with no respect whatsoever for the language barrier. It’s not fair to expect everyone to understand English. At the very least, please convey that message to all staff.

Hi there ManBearhorse, Firstly thank you for the 5 and very kind words, very please to hear you enjoyed 😊 As regards your very relevant and well presented observations / recommendations I’ll answer in bullet point for if that’s ok. 1; Agreed on the app but it’s our first effort and the expense to change out ( in the current climate) is not a priority. We are however aware and will deal as soon as feasible. 2: prowler track turf is replaced annually and we are we are due to do so again prior to the next high season. 3: blanket punishment is a part of our military ethos angle (throw back to my commando training days) and we find it works in terms of operational effectiveness. 4: Language barriers are an issue and difficult to resolve due to our standard of coaches being extremely high but generally not bilingual. You’ve prompted a thought for the use of flash cards, so thanks again. Thanks again and look forward to seeing you soon again. #GOHARDORGOHOME 👍

You won’t find a more inclusive, inspiring and all round wonderful to smash your goals!
Sep 2019
Unit27 is truly one of a kind. It’s the absolute best place I’ve ever been for training and the atmosphere there is unrivaled! What makes this place so special is the AMAZING people who make up the Unit27 team! Each has their own unique coaching style but each and every one of them are top class. A massive thank you to Jibby for pushing me to my absolute limit in Grenade, Natalie for her epic (and much needed) pep talks during body consultations, Billy for patiently correcting my rubbish form in every CrossFit class, Tamika for creating such a positive and encouraging vibe in every class of hers, Eng for being deceptively tough - hiding it by being SO friendly and always smiling, Nick and Mr Oh for appearing out of nowhere if they spot you slacking to make sure you’re giving 100%, Gib for her killer warm ups, Lizel for strategically avoiding filming me when I told her I hated being on camera, Harry’s FAB Rapid Fire sessions and super informative demos and Leo for his expert advice on weight loss and nutrition helping me keep up the Unit27 healthy lifestyle even after leaving Phuket with his online coaching! A massive thank you as well to the wonderful reception team and hidden heroes who make the place run as smoothly and professionally as it does! I can’t thank you guys enough for helping me on my weight loss journey and to anyone reading this wondering if this is the right place for you – ABSOLUTELY it is! You won’t find a more inclusive, inspiring and all round wonderful to smash your goals. Thank you Unit27 – I can’t wait to get back!

Choose Unit everytime!
Dec 2019 • Solo
Trained here for a week after training at Titan. What a place!
Book onto classes through the app so the classes are controlled, limited to a max number of people.
The coaches are extremely competent at what they do, really positive energy every time you go.
Classes really do push you to your limits - super rewarding.
Pearls mobilize class in the morning sets you up for the day - so good!
Can’t wait to come back!!!

Hi and thank you so much for the review. Pearl really is a rare pearl and will be so happy to read this, as will the rest of the team 😁 Glad you appreciated the limited classes, we believe in a strict coach/client ratio approach and would actively rather help 20 people towards their goals than watch 50 people find their own way. Look forward to seeing you again 🙏 #GOHARDORGOHOME

I've been coming to unit 27 for the last five years I try to spend at least a month a year here , it's always a great experience with amazing coaching staff and great facilities and classes for all levels , only suggestion would be to get some heavier dead balls ,as over the years I've got stronger and now find the 50 kg not challenging any more, so would like to push myself to the next level ,,look forward to coming back in February ,with no doubt a bit of Xmas fat to burn off

Hi David - apologies for the delay in response, was certain I was up to date on this but evidently not 😞. My bad. Thank you so much for the kind review and words. We will raise the issue of dumbbells and address accordingly. 50kg dead balls puts you in a class above normal but we are here to accommodate and will certainly take a look at that. In the meantime please do enjoy your Xmas and don’t worry about a little bit of festive fat .... that’s why we train - so we can enjoy those important times. look forward to seeing you in Feb Cheers - #GOHARDORGOME 👍

Wish I’d come here sooner!
Sep 2019 • Solo
I’ve been to fitness street a few times and i’d always been too scared to walk into Unit 27. I’d walked past and everyone looked like fitness models and the workouts looked insane and I was worried I’d be laughed out of the building if I tried to take part.

I’d had a bad experience at Tiger and decided to take the plunge and try out Unit 27. I was super super nervous and didn’t know what to expect. I emailed them first to see if I could chat to them about what classes to do. They were really helpful and later that day I was signed up to a couple of classes.

I’ve got an injury that I need to work around, and all of the trainers were amazing at making sure my workouts didn’t suffer. I was easily the most unfit person in every class I attended but I was never made to feel out of place. Everyone in the class encourages you to get through the workout.

I wish I’d gone to Unit 27 sooner, as I only went with a week of my trip left. I’ll definitely be back again soon. I am missing the classes already!

Hi Gemsy, Firstly thanks so much for the great review, it’s always nice to hear that our Troopers are happy. Secondly it’s so good to hear that you got past the Units Hardcore reputation. Yes we do demand 100% but we also adapt to the clients needs. Many people don’t have the courage to step through our doors so please do accept a sincere “good on ya” from all of us here at The Unit. Looking forward to seeing you again soon 👍 Cheers - Rob #GOHARDORGOHOME

I’ve been here for 6 weeks already and the gym facility is great. I love the programs and I find them all encompassing. It would be one of my favorite and most recommended gyms on the strip if it weren’t for the fact that 50% of the staff NOT including Jibby, Tamika, Mr O and billy (they’re awesome) need to be trained in cultural appropriation. Need to work on not isolating beginners or other race that are not “Caucasian”... I’ve found myself getting more attention as a “advance” than people who are obviously struggling and in need of correction. The gym is truly a place in which you can meet your goals as long as you’re lucky to encounter the right trainers. Overall, trainers tend to cater to a very specific group while leaving the rest of the crowd feeling like they don’t belong. I understand that every gym as it’s own flow but this being a great space it’s a shame that all coaches don’t follow the same protocol to make everyone feel comfortable regardless of their fitness level or their race. #GOHARD in all levels or #GOHOME coaches. hope that there is a change for me to witness before I leave in the next two weeks. I truly would love to come back but only if it’s an equal place for all. (Unit 27- Please be respectful of my experience/observation and my feedback without comparing it to other “great reviews” each review specially when offering betterment for the company should be taken into account) 👋🏽 Rob & Dayle

Very Respectfully,
A fellow Trooper

Afternoon Trooper! First off I’d like to express that the cause for delay in Unit-27’s response to your review was that we value feedback an enormous amount, and of course your review contained a hefty amount of it. Including subjects we’ve never once had raised before, so naturally I needed time to digest. I’d like to thank you for your compliments of the facilities we here at Unit-27 possess and am thankful that you’ve had a great experience thus far, to a certain extent. I unfortunately have to respond to your other comments in reference to our coaching team, and I hope below I do that in a respectful and understanding manner, which could potentially lead to myself being able to meet you personally if you need/wanted to. Unit-27 stands for many things, and the word ‘family’ is most certainly one. Since November 2013, when I stood on that floor about to run the first class, with a number of abilities, and huge diversity in the class, to now where we have a world-renowned team of coaches operating up to 16 classes per day, I believe we have managed to maintain the ‘family vibe’. The mention of cultural misappropriation from a few of our coaches is upsetting to me, as I personally have a relationship with each and every single one of them and can vouch for every all of them. At Unit-27 we have served a number of people from different countries and ethnic backgrounds from all around the world, to an extremely respectful standard, and not once have I ever encountered someone mention racial discrimination. Furthermore, the preferential treatment of advanced athletes I believe is not correct, as we have made it very clear during classes to focus on technique and encouragement, as we see this as paramount. To add to that point, we are also introducing a beginners programme to Unit-27 in the future, because we value differing abilities so much here at Unit-27. I’d like to thank you for your review and comments however, as feedback is always accepted here at Unit-27, and that’s how I believe we have reach the position in which we have now. I’d like to personally invite you contact me via my personal email, to see if we could further rectify this situation, and that I could explain more about “The Unit” to you, and why we love what we do so much. Much appreciated, Dayle Hallam Co Founder & Owner.

Awesome Experience

After spending a period travelling with my partner we decided to spend a month at Unit 27 prior to returning home. The facilities, staff, classes and quality of the coaching is fantastic. I can see why people return again and again. You really get out what you put in. 5*

Hi David, Great to hear that yourself and your partner decided to stay a full month and that you got what you were looking for. A month of Unit really is optimum, feels great when the body adapts and your start smashing the classes you initially viewed with a little trepidation hey ? Look forward to seeing you both again soon. Safe travels & #GOHARDORGOHOME 😉
