Are you planning to get fit or prepare for a fight in the land of Muay Thai?
If you want the best Muay Thai training Thailand can offer, read on to learn more about the things you need to do and the best Muay Thai Sam Roi Yot gym to train in.
Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand and as such the country has hundreds of Muay Thai camp facilities.
There are many training camps and gyms, each providing a different kind of experience at different budget points. Some of the best locations for Muay Thai training in Thailand include the Sam Roi Yot area which is located close to the beach.
However, before you pack your bags and head over to the Land of Smiles for your training, here are a few important things to consider:
Find a Camp That Suits Your Training Needs
The first thing you’ll need to do is to find a Muay Thai camp that best suits your living and training needs. As said, there are hundreds of training camps spread throughout the country but your choice will largely depend on your current level of experience and budget.
There are basically two types of Muay Thai training camps in Thailand. There are camps exclusively designed for the local community where you won’t usually find a foreigner and there are training camps or gyms geared towards foreigners, or farang as the locals say. Farang or foreigner camps are great for martial artists of all levels, from beginners to professionals.
If you are a beginner or intermediate level martial artists, foreigner-based Muay Thai camps are a good choice because the trainers are fluent in the English language, which means you’ll always communicate more easily with fellow trainees and trainers.
For experts, the camps have the same level of tough, grueling, and high-quality sessions as the local camps. The camps are usually located in the best locations where you can explore the great sceneries and landscapes of Thailand.
You’ll be surrounded by like-minded people with the same goals and aspirations as you. Just remember to explore the beauty of Thailand and have fun by choosing a gym close to social amenities and attractions, such as the 301 Gym in Sam Roi Yot.
Before you decide to train in Thailand, you should be mentally and physically prepared for the most physically grueling and challenging but rewarding and memorable experience ever.
Thailand is known for having the toughest Muay Thai training experience in the world. A normal day involves morning and afternoon runs of two to three hours followed by extensive training for five to six days every week.
However, you can train at your own pace until your stamina has built up to an extent where you can tackle more demanding challenges.
The most important thing is to avoid wearing yourself out and end up spending your days in Thailand sick in bed. Be patient and allow your body to gradually adjust to the more grueling training sessions.
Find the Best Accommodation You Can Afford
When it comes to accommodation, Thailand gives you a varied choice depending on your budget. Accommodation can expensive or cheap as you want it to be.
