Muay Thai wasn’t always as good natured as it is today. Once, it was quite aggressive and even violent with no safety gear for the fighters, and only lengths of cords to wrap around the fists in decoration. Rules have been written along the line of international boxing regulations. The sport has attracted a wide following internationally and training facilities have been set up in countries as far as the U.S. and the former Soviet states.

Superpro Samui is a new concept for the island – a gym and resort that aims to combine sport and holidays, based around a training programme that will leave you super fit and revitalized.
Taking in the scene at Superpro Samui, you feel like you have just landed on the set of ‘Rocky’. There are fighting rings, cages, punch-bags, free weights and lots of people in training for what seems tlike the “big fight”. But beyond these first impressions is a totally different side to this unique gym.
Of course, most of the facilities on offer at Superpro Samui can be found in any modern boxing training facility, but you would be less likely to find some of the luxuries added here. The concept is to provide clients with top class, professional training and then pamper them on site with 24 luxury guest rooms including 4 fully serviced apartments complete with communal swimming pool. It’s a service to suit visitors’ circumstances, whether you feel inclined to stay for a full sporting holiday or just overnight after a long day of fitness training. The gym even caters to holiday guests who may just want to watch the fights and training, with a restaurant and pool bar soon to open. (For more information call Superpro Samui Gym on 077 414 393).
