What do I bring to class?
If you've got your own Muay Thai gear (gloves and hand wraps), feel free to bring your own. If not, wraps are available for purchase at the front desk and gloves are available for rental or purchase.
We recommend bringing a water bottle and your own hand towel. Shorts and a t-shirt are our uniform of choice, but the best clothes are the ones you feel most comfy in.
How often should I train?
To achieve your best results, try to aim for 3-5 sessions per week, but also listen to your body when it needs to rest. After your first training session, your body may be sore and may need longer to recover, which is perfectly okay. To maximize muscle recovery and optimize your gains, try to take at least one rest day per week and supplement your training with plenty of stretches, water, sleep, and a balanced diet.
What is Muay Thai?
Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is a stand-up combat sport and is recognized as the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand. It's on track to become an Olympic sport and has gained popularity all over the world.
Sometimes referred to as The Art of Eight Limbs,' Muay Thai involves the entire body, identifying each strike (punch, kick, knee or elbow) as one 'weapon.' In addition to striking, it also utilizes sweeps and the clinch, a form of stand-up neck grappling.
What are the benefits of Muay Thai?
The conditioning that you go through to become faster, stronger, more efficient, and more powerful has similar effects on your body, mind, and spirit. As you train, you will notice greater self-confidence, a stronger sense of discipline and a mental fortitude that reveals itself in other areas of your life. When students practice Muay Thai, they cultivate strong values, and every time they show up, they have the ability to be humbled and inspired, to test their determination and courage, and to build others up with us. When you combine these mental gains with a noticeably fit and healthier body and an empowered spirit, there's no reason NOT to train Muay Thai!
