Many countries in the world have national sports. For example, for the United States that’s baseball. For the United Kingdom, that’s soccer. All these sports can be quite interesting to watch, but only a small number of them are practiced by fitness enthusiasts. Most of them are team sports and if they are individual they are not really designed for fitness purposes. One sport that has it all is Muay Thai.
Muay Thai also known as Thai boxing among Westerners is a combat sport that can be used as fitness activity too. Although Muay Thai was developed about 6 centuries ago, it was officially recognized as a sport with its own specially designed rules in the 20th century. Now, in the 21st century, Muay Thai training is an increasingly popular fitness activity. Thanks to the movies and TV shows featuring Muay Thai, many people from around the world have decided to learn more about it. Some of them are following instructions from specially designed DVDs, some visit their local gyms to take classes while others travel to Thailand and join a Muay Thai camp there. The latter option is obviously the most logical and best because people in Thailand are very passionate about their sport and the trainers surely know how to instruct their students to get the most from each training class.
Muay Thai can help students who have problems with their weight. If you want to lose weight quickly and in a completely natural way, Muay Thai can help you a lot even you are not staying for long in Thailand. This is a very intensive type of training that melts fat and calories fast (between 1000 and 1500 calories per training class). This type of training will change your mindset too. You will become more disciplined, more focused and more aware of the importance of being healthy. You can train at Suwit Muay Thai . Your overall health will be improved in no time if you are listening to your instructor.
Remember that Muay Thai is a sport that is suitable for men and women and there are many professional female fighters too.
In the end, don’t forget that you can use some beautiful beach near your training camp to relax before and after each training class.
