Muay Thai gyms in Bangkok

Getting in shape is among the most popular new year’s resolutions that often end in failure. Cardio, weights, and dieting are HARD. Especially because while they are very rewarding, they are quite dull as activities. But if you like competition, then Muay Thai is an awesome alternative that’ll have you working out so hard that it’ll be hard to even get up the next morning. Plus, there’s no place better than Thailand to learn the Art of the Eight Limbs.

Here are 7 Muay Thai gyms in Thailand that’ll get you in shape for your new year’s resolution.
