California Muay Thai Report
Posted by BP
I will start this gym review by saying that this gym is very new, it opened its doors early in September 2009. Just from first looks at this gym it is 100% top notch. All new mats, new bags, new pads, new work out equipment, new bathrooms, and so on. The gym itself is first class and the list of features includes:
-Full size elevated ring
-Caged off area for grappling and MMA
-New mats from Zebra Mats
-New banana bags from Fairtex
-Just released new Fairtex pole bags
-Just released Fairtex Thai Pads
-Innovative new mobile bag system
-Entire room for Cross Fit
-Krav Maga Pads and Gear
-Two ropes for climbing
-Area to store Gear
-Multiple Flat Screens and stereos
This gym is definitely the premier gym in the Tri Valley for all MMA, Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, Self Defense, Cross Fit, Krav Maga, Boxing, and Wrestling training. Right now the schedule is still being finalized but there are daily cross fit classes at noon and various classes from 5PM to closing which varies depending on classes but is usually around 9 something to 10pm. Classes are intense so be prepared to work your butt off but also get ready to learn a lot. The classes are structured so that you get a good work out but still learn the right technique at the same time.
The classes are very personal and everyone is treated the same. Whether you are new or advanced the training will be adjusted to meet your level of training.
