For many years, I’ve been looking for a good source of fitness that not only builds a great body and helps with weight loss, but also improves my mood and builds character.
I thought it was not possible to have all of these things in one type of exercise. But Muay Thai is completely different from the rest. It is different from bodybuilding, cardio, and other sports that only use your lower body. Instead, Muay Thai delivers complete training that involves all of your muscle groups at the same time.
This martial art is also known as the art of the eight limbs because you will be using your extremities twice as much as any other sport. It has a millennial tradition to it, but it is adapted to today’s needs and helps people get in shape and recover their fitness levels very rapidly. One session can burn up to 700 calories—quite a lot if you’re on a weight loss journey, and it has many health benefits associated with it.
I can talk about many health benefits but will start about your cardiovascular health. Muay Thai helps your heart become stronger and keep up with all of the demands of supplying all of your body with oxygen and nutrients. The cardiovascular approach can reduce the risk of atherosclerosis and heart disease because it also lowers your levels of bad cholesterol and may even improve your sugar control and insulin resistance if you’re a diabetic patient. As you can see, there are metabolic improvements in how your body chemistry works, so it is not only about looking better and feeling stronger.
Muay Thai gym is also a good source of mental health. Many users of this sport say they feel refreshed and release their tension and anxiety after a 1-hour session. It is definitely a good way to focus your mind, build your determination, uplift your self-esteem and confidence, and become more disciplined in what you need to do every day.
There are many fitness clubs all around the world, and you can practice Muay Thai in anyone you like. But if you want to have a complete experience, a training camp or gym in Thailand at suwitgym.net is definitely the best choice. You will also have the opportunity to visit the beautiful islands and beaches in the country, and have a complete experience around the culture and lifestyle that makes Thai people very strong and healthy compared to the occidental world.
Muay Thai offers a great opportunity to all family members, children and women included, to be more mindful about the connection between body and mind, helping us to develop strength and a beautiful body at the same time.
