Lanna Muay Thai – Chiang Mai

Posted by Tom on Aug 10, 2010 in Gym Reviews, Northern |

I was pretty impressed with this camp as they have a lot of equipment (definitely enough heavy bags & training gloves) and definitely push you to your limits, be prepared to go straight into clinching one your first day!
When we arrived, people just looked at us and no one approached us initially. But that’s probably a one off thing.
Right as the training starts you can see that people are serious and mean business in this gym. Everyone is motivated and go about their business straight from the get-go. From all the young ones to the elders to the women. Everyone is treated equally regardless of ability, so if you’re new to it, a lot will be learned the tough way, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing at all. Depends on your pace.
Some of the trainers at Lanna Muay Thai have trained other people in gyms abroad (i.e. New York) and speak near-perfect English.
Unfortunately the gym didn’t have any fans and is pretty closed up with the roof spanning the whole camp. It gets really hot in there sometimes when no wind blows and even then, if it’s not hard enough, you won’t get that cooled off.
There are huge mirrors like a proper boxing gym and the instructor to student ratio is really high, you won’t feel left out for too long. Someone is always on your case.
