Muay Thai ()มวยไทย) is a combat sport from Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees and shins as striking weapons. Thai Boxing has always been associated with a high level of fitness and endurance which makes a full-contact Muay Thai fighter a very efficient fighting machine.
Whilst these are tough sessions (think Insanity based on fighting arts) everyone works at their own rate, and can therefore pace themselves according to their own current fitness. We work in 5 minute rounds, with 5x1 minute different exercises per round, followed by a 1 minute rest. Everybody is welcome, so come on down and get that beach body you've always deserved. We can also help you with a diet plan too if required.
