What are your physical goals? Do you have set targets that you really want to achieve? Or do you just want to get back into a healthy exercise routine that will benefit you both physically and mentally? If the traditional gym approach is something that you struggle to feel inspired by and if you’re not particularly enthused about road-running or don’t have similarly-minded friends that will exercise with you, then you have plenty of reasons to give MMA training in Thomastown a go. It may seem like an unorthodox approach to getting fit at first, but trust us, this is a superior way to achieve your fitness goals and learn a practical skill in the process.

How Muay Thai Can Improve Your Life

One of the most popular classes that we teach here at Dominance is Muay Thai. This is a striking martial art, which gives you a whole body workout and is great for improving cardio conditioning, flexibility and power. These classes are ideal for those who have plenty of energy that they need to expend, or for those who want to participate in a high-octane set of drills that will get your heart rate going.

Muay Thai training in Thomastown isn’t all about sweating and engaging your muscles. One of the aspects of our gym that countless members love is the social element. Regardless of whether you are an incredibly extroverted person with a huge network of friends, someone that finds it tough to mingle with others or are new to the area, we are confident that through engaging with combat sports you will find a kinship and sense of common-ground that helps create life-long friendships.

We have had plenty of students who arrived at the gym with a negative self-image, or who were self-conscious about their physical appearance. Through making a mental commitment and training regularly, they not only started to feel energised, but their physical appearance was transformed, giving them a huge boost of confidence. Our modern sedentary lifestyle has a massive impact on our physical and mental health. Muay Thai training is a great way to combat the chronic issues and injuries this causes, increase energy, embrace a healthy lifestyle and start feeling good in your body.
