“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

Had a great WOD here. Definitely a great place to get a WOD in while you're on vacation. Everyone is really friendly and welcoming. The location is great - just a quick cab ride from pretty much any of the hotels in the main high-rise area. The main coach is an accomplished CrossFit athlete and was able to give me some quick mid-WOD tips without interrupting the flow of the workout (even though I was a drop-in).

Overall I had a fantastic experience here as a drop-in. I would definitely recommend this to any CrossFit athlete visiting Aruba.

“not what you would expect from the only affiliate on the island.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

I had the opportunity to WOD at this box and found the operation to leave a lot to be desired. Warm ups consisted of rowing 5 minutes all the time. The WODS are copied verbatim from CF Mayhem so the owner isnt doing his own programming. The coach does not care about the athletes when they're busy with their WOD not correcting their forms or technique. I also found out later that one person who is considered a coach on their fb page is not a certified level one trainer. The strength component of a normal CF workout isn't offered. I believe it's because the owner isn't comfortable with that component himself. In fact, he walks around eating an apple as he is "coaching". I also think the place is way over priced for what you get, or rather, what you don't. I cannot recommend CrossFit 297.

“The one and only CrossFit on Aruba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

For all your sport and training needs while on Aruba, this is the place to be! Certified and professional trainer LeRoy will coach you through your WOD. Great location, right next to the Kong Hing supermarket and with happy people. CrossFit A297 is a great place to workout and train while on vacation.
