Muay Thai Training – A Necessity for Every Fitness Trainer
If you don’t know what Muay Thai is, it’s a form of a martial art and has originated in Thailand. Why should you learn it if you want to become a fitness trainer? Let’s see.
A Full-body Workout
If you meet a Muay Thai master, such as the NESTA muay thai certification course creator, Bryce Krause who has trained some of the best martial artists in the world, you’ll be astonished by their tremendous level of energy, fitness and a well-sculpted body. Reason is obvious. It’s because muay Thai is a full-body workout that involves several important muscle groups.
Muay thai training involves a great range of physical activities and routines, such as running, kickboxing, shadowboxing and jumping rope. It provides aerobic as well as anaerobic exercises. Getting muay thai training for 60 to 90 minutes can give you 1,000 to 1,200 calories burned just within a single session. So, you can understand how muay thai is a great way to shed stubborn fat and tone your muscles while developing flexibility and a stronger core, and why muay thai masters like Bryce Krause have such wonderful level of energy, fitness and toned muscles.
As a coach of UFC fighters you need to be extremely self-disciplined and muay thai training builds and improves this self-discipline in you. When you learn new techniques and skills and see yourself making progress in them, you’ll be motivated to stick to your practice and training schedule. This will build self-discipline and healthy habits in you.
Improves Stamina and Cardiovascular Health
If you’re planning to become a fitness trainer, muay thai is perfect for you because it’s not for the faint-hearted. You have to undergo several rounds of rigorous training that will literally test your stamina and strength. You can see muay thai experts going through 4-5 rounds of training without looking exhausted, because they build an excellent cardiovascular health over time due to the training.
Improves Hip Mobility
Muay thai compels you to move your hips continuously during training and practice which you’ll find beneficial in your old age because you’ll be at a lower risk of hip injuries and other health conditions. Since it’s basically a kickboxing sport full of kicking and knee movements, this is an important health benefit offered by muay thai.
