After the success of the hit TV shows Contender Asia and Biggest Loser Asia, of which Fitness First was not just a sponsor, but also a training partner, Muaythai has become hugely popular in the world’s leading fitness gym.
Personal trainers are now faced with high demand for personal one to one ‘boxercise’ training sessions, as it is clear to gym goers that nothing burns more calories than a Muaythai work out.
All over Asia, Fitness First gyms are holding clinics for their personal trainers to qualify them as trained pad holders, putting them a step ahead of the rest.
The seminars are conducted in cooperation with the national Muaythai associations, and Muaythai personality Stephan Fox is invited in to lead the motivational part of the seminars.
Last week’s seminar was held in Indonesia and was participated by over 80 personal trainers, who were whipped into shape and schooled on how to conduct safe and fun Muaythai training sessions with their clients.
