What is Muay Thai? 

Muay Thai is a high-energy combat sport that originated in Thailand hundreds of years ago and has grown popular in the US in recent decades.

With its nickname “The Art of 8 Limbs,” the martial art is known for its artful utilization of strikes (think: punching like boxing) and clinching (think: grappling like wrestling). By leveraging all four limbs of each opponent to fight and block, Muay Thai specializes in turning every part of your limbs, from your fists and forearms to the elbows and shoulders of your upper body, to the knees, shins and feet of your lower body, into highly effective shields and weapons. Through unique moves that can surprise and destabilize your opponent, Muay Thai enhances street fighting skills.

But as fierce and effective Muay Thai is as a fighting technique, it’s also an incredible full-body aerobic and anaerobic workout. In order to sustain the moves required to hit and tackle your opponent, it builds core, arm and leg strength while improving endurance and elevating your metabolism.


Why Take Muay Thai Classes?

The Muay Thai classes at X3 Sports are group-oriented and accessible to all. Our instructors build challenging and fun classes that vary widely from class-to-class, ensuring that you’ll never reach the dreaded plateau in your fitness journey.

If you’ve never taken Muay Thai, they’ll take time to explain the reason why each move is effective and show proper form so that you can keep your bones and joints safe while honing real-word self-defense skills. In your Muay Thai classes, you’ll build muscle memory that can help you react in real time to a potential threat in real life. If you’re never thrown a punch in your life, Muay Thai will teach you the basics of fighting but in a safe and playful environment.

As an exercise, Muay Thai classes are considered high-intensity interval training, where bursts of maximum output are sandwiched between brief periods of rest. HIIT workouts burn more calories than cardio workouts with less stop-and-go momentum, such as running or cycling, and can keep your metabolism elevated for hours after class.

Our Muay Thai classes will push you to the edge of your comfort zone through disciplined technique training and difficult strength and conditioning exercises. You’ll sculpt lean muscle up and down your body while building balance and coordination.


What to Expect at Muay Thai Classes

Our Muay Thai classes are a mesh of cardio and strength exercises as well as fundamental Muay Thai drills. All of our classes start and end with brief warm-up and cool-downs, but there’s also ample free workout space and cardio machines at each of our five conveniently located facilities in the Atlanta Metro Area to add to your workout before and after class as you see fit.

Your trainer will make an effort every class to provide personalized instruction so that you feel comfortable with the pace of class, difficulty of the sequences and digestion of new information. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. You can also come early and talk with our team onsite who can recommend any equipment or safety gear, such as handwraps, that you may want to bring with you to class.

If you’re more experienced in The Art of 8 Limbs, your trainer will help you dial up the intensity and evolve your training with challenging add-ons.
