Here’s Why Muay Thai Will Finally Get You Exercising

Are you trying to find an exercise routine that will motivate you to hit the gym every day? If you aren’t used to working out, finding the motivation to put on your running shoes and pack your gym gear after a long day at work could be tough. Running on the treadmill or simply lifting weights could get boring and soon enough you’ll find yourself back at square one. But what if we told you that there was a way to keep you going back to the gym – without a personal trainer hounding you. What if we told you that this particular exercise was good enough that you’d want to keep on doing it for the rest of your life? And, what if we told you that it could change your life – beyond losing the weight you’ve always wanted? Sounds interesting? Maybe you should consider Muay Thai.

1) Muay Thai Will Help You Lose Weight – Fast!

So you’re looking to finally fit into that pair of jeans that’s been sitting at the back of your closet. Admit it, it’s hidden for a reason – you can’t fit into them anymore. No matter how hard you’ve tried, you’re always struggling to zip them up. You’ve finally decided that you want to start an exercise routine to lose weight, but you just can’t decide which one to try. Have you considered Muay Thai? Not only has it been street and battle tested, it’s also guaranteed to help you burn up to 1,000 calories in an hour. And if that doesn’t get you back into that pair of jeans you’ve been hiding, what else will?


2) You’ll Get The Motivation You Need To Hit The Gym Every Day

Muay Thai helps you learn to block out distractions.

But this isn’t the only reason you should try Muay Thai. If you’re the type of person who needs motivation to workout, Muay Thai is perfect. Each session is your chance to learn something new. Whether it’s a new technique or a new way to execute your favorite technique, there’s bound to be something you’ve never tried before. Unlike other forms of exercise where your only motivation is heavier weights or longer distance, with Muay Thai, your motivation is the unexpected! You never know what new technique or combination you’ll learn at your next session.


3) You’ll Have World Champion Instructors That Will Inspire You

Nothing is more inspiring than learning from someone who has been there and done that. The Muay Thai World Champions at Evolve MMA have decades of experience competing at the highest levels of the sport. They have overcome incredible obstacles to get to where they are today – something that most people believe that only renowned athletes are capable of doing. Learning under these World Champions will help you realize that almost anything is possible once you put your mind to it. If they were able to work hard and achieve their goals, it proves that anyone with the right mindset and “heartset” will be able to do the same.


4) You’ll Have The Strength And Stamina You Never Thought You Had

Throughout the course of a Muay Thai class, you will practice kicks, knees, elbows, and punches.

If you’ve never done Muay Thai before, even just looking at it might seem tiring. But after surviving that first session, you’ll realize that you were able to do everything you never thought you could! Even if you didn’t do everything your instructor asked you to do, you did more than you expected of yourself! Just imagine what you’ll be capable of after a few months of training. Remember, however out of breath and shape you may feel, every single person in your class was in your shoes (or bare feet) at one point in time. They just kept on attending class and working hard on their technique and all these helped them become better students. Eventually, you’ll be able to do hundreds of kicks and punches just like the others!


5) It Doesn’t Feel Like Exercise!

A Muay Thai class is the most fun you will ever have working out!

Perhaps one of the main reasons why people hate exercising is because, simply, it requires too much effort. When you’re doing Muay Thai, you’ll be so focused on learning and perfecting your techniques that you’ll forget that you’re burning hundreds of calories. And because you’re surrounded by people who are working on becoming better, just like you are, you’ll be more determined to give it your all. And as we mentioned, you’ll be more motivated to come back – which is the biggest battle of all!  


6) You’ve Seen Other People Completely Change Mentally And Physically Because Of Muay Thai

There’s no doubt about it, Muay Thai changes lives. Many people have attested their success in losing weight to Muay Thai. Some people also believe that Muay Thai has helped them changed their lifestyles as well. To see such changes in others is truly inspiring – something that you don’t see in a regular workout. And the best part is that you’re learning things along the way and working on improving yourself every day. And that’s what makes it fun and feel less like a workout than anything else you’ve ever done.


If that doesn’t convince you to train Muay Thai, we don’t know what else will! So go forth and give Muay Thai a try today!
