How Muay Thai Can Help Bring Balance to Your Life

 in Frisco - Rockstar Martial Arts and Fitness

Like most teenagers, Shiva found herself constantly being bombarded with all sorts of new things like body image issues and an increasingly busy schedule. Fortunately she found Muay Thai at the age of 18, and she couldn’t be happier with the results she's gotten since.

"I used to be very self-conscious.  But since I started Martial Arts, I've become happier and more confident."

The results of her training are not uncommon. Others who start training martial arts like Muay Thai often experience the same results.

Confidence is one of those things that comes with learning martial arts. There are many reasons for this. For starters, the gradual progression that occurs from training gives students a confidence boost. Regardless of fitness levels, students typically have a hard time performing all the drills and techniques being taught. However, as the training progresses, these same drills eventually becomes second nature to the student. Mastering things that once seemed impossible reminds each student just how much they can accomplish when they stick to things.

Progressing through the ranks is not the only thing that leads to the increased confidence martial arts students experience. Their increased fitness also helps with this. A typical hour-long Muay Thai class can burn up to 1,000 calories. That is significantly more than the 600 calories burned per hour when running or the 300 calories used up when lifting weights. The fat-burning intense workout students get during Muay Thai classes combined with a healthy diet can turn anyone into a lean, ripped machine.

In addition, learning how to properly defend yourself also does wonders for a person’s self-esteem and confidence. It gives you peace of mind knowing you will not be completely helpless if you ever become the victim of an assault.

"I started doing Martial Arts in 1998. I saw an ad in our High School newspaper and there was an opportunity for a free trial class. So I thought, why not, I’ll just try it."
