If you’re looking for a place to learn how to strike or even just get some cardio done, Instinct Muay Thai is the place to go. It offers top tier classes that are certainly going to sharpen your skills no matter the skill level almost every day of the week, nothing but good music and good vibes unlike anywhere else, and a community of skilled yet humble and welcoming people that are all there to help each other grow. Highly recommend at least a trial class for those that are interested.

Recently joined the gym this summer as I was looking to get into the art of Muay Thai. I happened to find Instinct Muay Thai, and it immediately felt like home! I learned a lot, even from just the first class (be prepared to sweat!). The instructors and the students are very welcoming. Both instructors have been training for numerous years and are skilled at translating a complex martial art into an easy-to-learn manner.

I was invited to try out 1 free training session by a buddy and was instantly hooked. Signed up same day and have been going for about a month and a half now. Love that it has a combination of boxing and Muay Thai classes as well as personal training options. Even with the group classes coach Manny makes sure to individually coach everyone throughout the session. 100% recommended.
