"I’ve just finished a week at the gym and it’s been outstanding. The trainers have championship winning experience and the patience to show a new timer their skills! The gym has everything you need for a good work out and the garden is perfect for resting between sessions. Make sure you make the most of the delicious meals, you will need all the energy you can get ! Special mention to Chris and Mama, they really welcomed me in and made the experience the cut above anything else !!"
"This Gym is incredible. The moment we arrived we were made to feel like part of the team and family and were treated with the utmost respect. My son had never trained and I was rusty after many years off the pads and out of the ring. The trainers made me feel welcome and ensured we were trained, and trained hard, at the right level for us.
Amazing trainers, great people and Mama's food is the best!
Highly recommended! Thank you - we'll be back!"
"Great experience !Had a really great time at the Sor Vorapin gym, the place is awesome, the trainers are so nice, and make you sweat a lot, and of course Mama's cooking is amazing !
I was looking for a traditional Muay Thai training, and I am glad that I did it there !
I enjoyed so much spending time there that I already came 3 times in one month (good luck to me ! Haha) I definitely come back soon"
"I truly enjoyed my (unfortunately short) stay in Sor Vorapin Gym. Training was hard, but a lot of fun with nice trainers and other Muay Thai enthusiasts. The gym has a really familial atmosphere; you train, eat, relax together and sometimes have a drink or two. Food is great, and people are really relaxed outside of training. If you need to be in the heart of Bangkok it’s not for you though, as the gym is in a quiet suburb that has a distinctly rural feel. Great to really focus on training and relax your mind though. I did improve and learn quite a lot in my few days and hope to keep all the techniques in mind after I leave Thailand.
So many thanks to the trainers and staff at Sor Vorapin gym, I will return if I can!"
"Amazing gym. Made to feel like a family and helped all the way. All trainers have championship experience and train very well. Would absolutely recommend!"
