Best Muay Thai Gym In The World

The staff here are great, and they really know Muay Thai. We recommend you go to see them fighting at the Williams stadium, it’s a great show. 

We have been training in couple other Muay Thai gyms too, but there is nothing like Lanta Gym!

Best Muay Thai Experience I’ve Ever Had

Trainers at Lanta were extremely welcoming to beginners and people of all level of fitness and potential. No matter where you were physically or technically the trained you up appropriately and gave everyone the same amount of attention and respect. The trainers were also all extremely personable and very likeable. They also had great senses of humor It felt as though you were being trained by friends. Training was entertaining, and rewarding – you barely felt the time pass. We were lucky enough to run into our trainers out in town and they were just as friendly as they were in the gym. We will be looking forward to training here the next time we are in Thailand.

Amazing Gym and Trainers!

Having just completed 5 sessions over 5 days at Lanta Muay Thai Academy I can confidently say that this is an amazing gym to try out some Muay Thai! 

This was my first time trying Muay Thai and the improvement over such a limited time was so rewarding! Because it was low season I was lucky enough to end up with mostly private sessions in the group slots which was perfect for getting immediate feedback on my technique. The Muay trainers have a wealth of experience and are very encouraging teachers. The training atmosphere is both intense and completely relaxed, they push you to perform and have a laugh too. Slava lead most of my warm up and cool down routines which were perfectly thorough and he was always happy to delve into more detail of exercises and gave me tips to take away and add to my own workouts – he really knows his stuff!

Best Muay Thai / Fitness Gym On Lanta!

My partner and I trained here both fitness classes and Muay Thai for one week – it was great fun! The coaches were all very helpful, passionate and worked easily with different experience levels.

Also highly recommend the fitness classes – Slava is a great trainer, lots of tips, challenges you and pays a lot of attention to teaching the right way. 

Highly recommend training here,
no matter what you’re after fitness-wise!

Super Experience!

In one week on Koh Lanta my husband and I trained at the gym for five times and not once have we been disappointed or unsatisfied with something. Professional (many) trainers, so you really get good and detailed feedback from them and some one on one time on the pads. They also have a fantastic fitness trainer Slava who does warm ups, stretching and focus-muscle training in end of every session. If you are at least little interested or curious on what Muay Thai boxing is then you must visit this academy!

Great Gym And Trainers

This gym has good facilities and plenty of space. The main thing I like about it though is the people ad trainers. The trainers are helpful and nice, they push you when you need to be pushed but also give you space when you really need it. And there is usually many trainers so you get plenty of 1-on-1 attention.

Very Good Muay Thai Gym!

I have been going Muay Thai since 2012 and I used to fight too. Also I am personal trainer in London and I have been in the fitness industry for more than 20 years. 

The gym is well equipped, the warm up and cool down is lead by a qualified trainer (Slava). He really loves his job and does it at his best. 

The Thai trainers are friendly and know what they are doing. I even met the owners who were training when I was there. Lovely people who give a family feeling to the whole gym. 

I will definitely go back to training at the Lanta Muay Thai academy and I highly recommend it!

Went to a few different Muay Thai gyms around Thailand,
but Lanta gym was the very best of them for me!

Very nice warmup and cooldown with Slava and very friendly trainers who were always smiling. In group trainings they adjust to your level – they teach basics to beginners and if you’re advanced and have no-one to spar with, trainers do sparing with you also.

I visited this gym 5 years ago and recently again and both time i was completely satisfied with everything. I will definitely come back!

I spent about three weeks training at Lanta Muay Thai Academy. Great way to improve fitness and strength. Warm up and cool down sessions with Slava are excellent, targeting specific muscle groups, endurance, etc. Muay Thai training here is suitable for all levels. Emphasis is placed on technique, which means you really learn the art of Muay Thai. Friendly trainers and environment. Thank you Lanta! Highly recommend.

Top Training In Lanta!

I took several morning training sessions as a beginner. The instructors are really good, very dedicated, able to make you get better with every training, giving you good pieces of advice. 1h30 of top training with warm up, practice and stretching. I would come back with pleasure and totally recommend it!

Awesome Class!

My friend and I did a Muay Thai class in Koh Lanta. Unfortunately when we showed up at 8 am, it was an advanced class so we were nervous. However, we didn’t need to be. They took three beginners and split us from the rest of the group so we could learn together and not have any pressure. It was a great workout and a lot of fun!

Must Visit For All Levels!

We trained during one week here in Lanta Muay Thai. Very good warming up and cooling down session given by Slava, with a lot of variety each day. Some good tips and tricks for my blocked hips to use at home also. The training itself was of a very good level and personalized aswell thanks to the experienced Thai trainers who where always there to give you detailed instructions and corrections while doing both endurance and technique exercises. Much appreciated the one to one approach and feedback of different trainers. Would definitely advise this club and come back.

The training was excellent!! Slava, the trainer did the warming up and the cool down for the before and after the Muay Thai training. In one word just perfect. The second day off training I couldn’t do the muay thai training because of my injury. But Slava gave me another training so I could still work out! Very professional and he knows what he is doing! Next time I will definitely go back!

The Best HIIT On Lanta!

I’ve been taking part in training with Tom HIIT classes a few times a week and highly recommend. Tom is such a good motivator and trainer, always on hand to push me through each exercise. He provides top notch training and a range of exercises in a really friendly atmosphere. It’s great fun and keep going back!

Very Friendly Gym That Is Welcoming To Beginners

Myself and my girlfriend attended this gym as we wanted to start to learn Muay Thai. We were initially nervous about going to a gym but the instant we got to Koh Lanta Academy we felt so welcome and at ease. All the trainers are patient and understanding. They are serious and pationate about what they do but at the same time are kind and create a relaxed atmosphere that allows everyone from beginners to seasoned fighters to learn. Can’t speak highly enough of this place and I am so happy we chose this gym to begin or Muay Thai journey even through the ab work at the end was a killer!

The great thing about this gym is how inclusive and friendly everyone is. The trainers and fighters are at the highest standards, but also everyone of every ability and age is made welcome with appropriate training offered. 

Excellent, well maintained premises and equipment too!

Brilliant Training, Experience and Team

I didn’t come to Ko Lanta thinking I’d learn to ‘box’ or Muay Thai as its known here. But after one trial class I was hooked 😉

Great team, gym, and really focused attention to everyone who trains. Its taken seriously but not to the point where ego’s get in the way of having fun, learning and sweating like nothing else!

I’ve completed 10 classes over 7 weeks and will keep coming back as long as I’m in Ko Lanta. The option to do a full fitness class if you need a break from the boxing is there too. Slava and Tom are great all-round athletic coaches alongside the the Muay Thai trainers. 

One of the highlights of my time in Thailand for sure and the swim in the huge pool after training feels amazing!
