Dropped in for a WOD while I was on the island for vacation. Great people: very knowledgeable, friendly, and laid back while still being supportive and challenging. Made me think of my Box back home. Very spacious with a full spread of all the CF equipment you could want. I'd highly recommend this place for anyone looking for an athletic... More

Thank God these guys are here! We are regular CrossFitters at home and I had looked them up prior to our trip. The gym is pretty close to the Ritz Carlton, about a 10 minute cab ride which always seemed to cost $9 or $10. The gym was large and full of all the usual CrossFit equipment. The staff was... More

I have been training at Crossfit 297 since 5 months and I absolutely love it. On this island, it is hard to find a good place to workout. I highly recommend Crossfit 297. Both of the trainers are very professional, they give great advice and are both really friendly and will make you feel welcome. Therefore the atmosphere is really... More

I am a strength athlete who stopped by CrossFit A297 on my honeymoon, and they let my wife and I come in and use their entire gym for just $10 each. This is the best place to squat and deadlift in the entire country. They have excellent (and clean) equipment, chalk, and plenty of space in which to life. The... More

Incredibly inviting trainers and athletes. Outstanding, rigorous training. Clean, spacious facility. As an aside, owner Leroy and his wife gave us great tips on where to eat, go sightseeing, and the insider essentials. A297 was a great place to wod on vacation and we would go out of our way to attend their classes again.

Great BOX to visit while vacationing in Aruba. Leroy customized a the perfect WOD for the group I brought. The others training at the BOX also encouraged our group. Everyone enjoyed it. If you are staying at Divi resorts, you can borrow bikes from the Tamarijn and take a short 5 minute ride. I highly recommend it.
