As your physical strength, coordination, and stamina develop, you will also notice improvements in your determination, patience, and self-control.

Physical Benefits:

A Well-Proportioned Body - Before any training, one should warm up to improve blood circulation. The training speeds up the body’s metabolism and burns off fat. Eventually, you will notice a decrease in fat, an increase in muscle, and an overall improved sense of well being.

Strength and Agility - Regular training will build up your stamina and put your body in good shape. The body will get used to arduous routines and becomes stronger as a result. The constant training and drilling in Muay Thai techniques will allow your mind and body to instantly and effectively react to your opponent’s attacks.


Mental Benefits:

Courage, Determination, and Self-Confidence - Regular exercises are very important in Muay Thai. The body will be driven to the limit of exhaustion. If you do not have stamina and determination, you will certainly give up, so it is necessary to train the mind to be tough. In Muay Thai or any kind of profession, a good player in the game must have supreme self-confidence that one could successfully complete various manoeuvres to make timely and sudden decisions.

Intelligence and Wisdom - Muay Thai is a self-defence that is full of tactics, tricks, and techniques. Training in Muay Thai means learning all the tactics to defeat the opponent and the ways to counter your opponent’s manoeuvres. A Muay Thai practitioner must have enough wisdom in using the techniques and tricks, supported by a fair degree of intelligence.


Social Benefits:

The proper maintenance of health will compliment the martial tactics acquired. In normal circumstances, a Muay Thai practitioner will be indoctrinated on the subject of discipline, respect for the rules of the school, and obedience to the instructor. This will lead to the possession of good manners, good spirit, honesty, sense of justice, and self-confidence.

Dynamic MMA Fitness Tips

    • Please come hydrated! It’s important that you’re drinking water throughout the day…BEFORE training.

      If you’re interested in leaning out, cut out the salt! Limit the starchy carbohydrates… stick with lean meats and protein, and save a starch for post-training meals… mmmm…you earned it!

      You’re not a kid… watch the sugar! We have some hidden culprits in the form of dried fruit. Try to stick with berries for your fruits (not dried)… nature’s candy!

      Fat is not the enemy! Good fats are in nuts, coconut oil, avocado and ghee… packed with great calories and keeps you satiated longer.
