I started at Muay Thai Niagara in 2019 shortly after my Dad passed away of lung cancer. I
was in a very dark place mentally and physically in the worst shape of my life. I felt lousy
and unhealthy. I needed some where to put my grief.
My best friend encouraged me to go try a class with her, little did I know I was not just
entering a gym that day but a family.
I started with one class a week and soon realized I was capable of more thanks to the
encouragement of our coaches.
I love learning the techniques of Muay Thai. It’s a skill I never saw myself capable of. The
coaches are so supportive, encouraging, motivating, skilled and so much fun. I now do 2
classes a night 4-5 days a week with a mix of strength and conditioning, adult mixed
classes, ab and ladies class.
I feel stronger and healthier than I ever have. The weight has melted away and my
confidence has grown. I am super excited to continue learning the techniques and building
the amazing friendships I have already made. This is a gym where no matter your path in
life you will be supported, encouraged and not judged.
I am truly thankful for Muay Thai Niagara. They saved me in more ways I could possibly
say. #mysecondhome #onelove
I joined Muay Thai Niagara in July 2020 right after everything started opening back up. It was
the best thing that happened this year! I started Muay Thai with no experience ever in martial
arts and the coaches were fantastic at making sure I learned all the necessary techniques. I feel
better mentally and physically than I have ever felt working out in any gym/fitness centres. The
staff, I have to say are like family now, they treat you like you are home. The only thing I regret
is not finding out about MTN earlier in the past years I been in St cathartines. If I could rate
MTN out of 5 stars I would give it 100.
Enrolling our kids (ages 3 and 4) at MTN was the best decision! Muay Thai has built their
confidence, cultivated their interest in sports, and helped them forge new friendships. We are
so grateful to the amazing coaches at MTN for their encouragement and support.
I have been training with Muay Thai Niagara for 11 years now. It started with just wanting to
lose 10lbs for my wedding. I never dreamt that a gym would do as much as it has for me. The
entire coaching staff are more than just my trainers but they are some of my very best friends.
They have taken a shy bullied adult and turned me into a confident adult who truly believes
that there isn't anything I can't do even though I have suffered from MS for 38 years. They
have also taught me that there isn't any goal/dream that you can't make come true. I had, had
a dream of completing the New York City marathon since 1994 and my head trainer Kru Roger
always wants to know what goals I want to reach every year. I just mentioned it one year
thinking that he would think it was as absurd a goal as there was but he told me to do some
research and find out how I could get entered so I did and gave him the information. He and his
wife Aly formulated a training plan for me that was geared strictly towards me accomplishing
this goal. In 2018 I headed out to New York with Kru Roger where he and I finished the
marathon side by side and is something that I will never forget. In 2019 I had the dream of
climbing into the ring and competing which I thought would never happen but with all of the
coaches helping me I reached that goal as well. I can't wait to see what the future holds for me
MTN coaches and athletes are all considered to be extensions of my family that I will be forever
