WHAT IS THAI FIT™ ?
THAI FIT™ is a revolutionary kickboxing fitness program that combines the best fitness cross training exercises with real Muay Thai kickboxing. THAI FIT ’s™ unique workout sculpts the muscles of the arms, legs, butt, and abs! Muscle and Fitness Magazine rates fitness kickboxing as the number one fat burner, with over 1,200 calories burned during a single one hour class! With THAI FIT™ you will be burning fat and toning up by punching and kicking real heavy bags.
THAI FIT™ classes are great for both females and males that have the goal for a healthy fit lifestyle, and they have a blast training together in this fun high energy class. THAI FIT ™ classes are based on Muay Thai kickboxing; the national sport of Thailand. Muay Thai is as exciting to practice as it is to watch. Muay Thai fighters don’t just use punches and kicks, but also knees and elbows to strike against pads and heavy bags. This style of training will bring your current degree of fitness to an entirely new level.

Its Pad training style makes it safe, fun and effective for really implementing and trying new techniques as well as learning quickly if you are a beginner. Also, there are no extensive forms like in Tae Kwon Do or karate, so you are immediately immersed in the real life applicable techniques that you came to learn.
