The vast majority of men and women gladly talk about holidays. This is especially true when it comes to summer holidays. With so many stressful and tensed days at work and at home, it is no wonder why people want to talk about holidays from time to time. But, when they discuss, they usually focus on things like beaches, seas, hotels and nightlife. Only a small number of them are talking about fitness activities. This is wrong because since we live in a world where time is very precious and we have little or no time for physical activity, fitness, health and wellbeing should be one of our priorities at least when we are planning our next holiday.
Many people don’t want to talk about this because they find exercise and fitness activities boring and exhausting. If you are one of them, you should know that physical activity doesn’t have to be like that. As a matter of fact, there is an activity that can keep you coming back for more once you are finished with the training class. The best part is that you can practice this discipline in the country where it was developed. If you don’t know what we are talking about we will mention four words – Muay Thai in Thailand!
There is no need to talk about Thailand as a holiday destination much because the fact that more than 20 million people visited this country last year tells us a lot about the attractiveness of this country. That’s why we will focus on Muay Thai.
Thai boxing, or as native Thai people call it Muay Thai, is a very old martial art, sport and fighting discipline. Obviously, people in the past used it for defense and attacks against enemies. Today, Muay Thai is officially recognized combat sport and increasingly popular fitness activity. So, besides the professional fighters who are practicing Muay Thai training to improve their results, there are many ordinary people who take Muay Thai classes for fitness purposes. This is exactly what tourists do.
You next holiday can help you become stronger, healthier and more attractive if you take Muay Thai classes in a training camp in Thailand. You can read at Why taking a sport Holiday is a good idea? . You won’t have to look for a camp like this for a long time before you find a good one because as we said Muay Thai has a reputation of a national sport in Thailand.
The classes last for 60, 90 or even 120 minutes and take place once or twice a day. It all depends on your fitness goals. Muay Thai training will help you lose weight and maintain healthy weight, strengthen your muscles (all muscle groups), develop strong core, increase speed and flexibility and improve your endurance. On the other hand, Muay Thai can help people who want to take good care of their mental health too. With Muay Thai they will de-stress, boost confidence and improve their mood.
Be smart and use your holiday to start with Muay Thai training.
