5 tips for Muay Thai newbies 

  1. You don’t need to be super fit to have a go. A good training gym will offer classes to suit all levels of fitness.
  2. You don’t need to fight. Or even spar. Most good camps will allow you just to train and learn the moves without having to get into combat mode.
  3. Have patience. You won’t become an expert overnight, nor should you expect to.
  4. Eat well. If you’re training like an athlete, you should try and eat like one with lots of healthy foods and plenty of water.
  5. Be careful of heat exhaustion. If you’re not used to tropical temperatures you need to acclimatise, so pace yourself and don’t push too hard too quickly. Remember to drink plenty of fluids before, during and after training.
