Well, you have found the right place!

„Whoever stops becoming better has stopped being good"  
Philip Rosenthal

Thaiboxing ( Muay Thai )

Muay Thai (Thai boxing) has emerged from most traditional martial arts. When sword and lance turned out to be unusable, the Thai warriors used their legs, fists, and elbows as weapons. At Hauptstadt Gym, the work-out focuses on the modern elements in competitive sports. Fast acting fists, explosive kicks and sturdy knees are just as important to us as the Muay Thai clinch, elbow punches and the traditional respect for your training partners, opponent, and the sport itself are.


Thai boxing training is a full-fledged work-out. In each and every second of the training session and beyond, it challenges your body and mind and trains your fitness as well as your abilities to concentrate and coordinate! Hauptstadt Gym is open for you to exercise at six days a week. 3 times a week, you can start exercising here already at 08:00 AM! There is no better way to start your day. In the course of our Open Gym on Saturdays from 10:45 to 12:15, you can train your kicking and pushing at our sandbags or do some mitt drill work with your training partner. Whether you exercise in our beginners’ class or among the advanced or champion athletes, kindness, mutual respect and treating each other as partners is the base for all work-out at Hauptstadt Gym.


You live in Schöneberg- Tempelhof – Steglitz – Lankwitz – Mariendorf – Marienfelde or Lichterfelde and are looking for a Muay Thai Gym in your neighborhood? Do you need flexible training hours?  Hauptstadt Gym is the right place for you!

Technique training

Learn - and improve. This is what the technique courses are about. Of course, these courses also include plenty of press-ups and situps to improve one's physique. However, the focus is on learning and improving punches, kicks, combinations and the Muay Thai Clinch.

Sparring / tactics

Practice is better than studying. In this course, you can test your skills during sparring. Novices practice blocking, guarding against and dodging punches and kicks. Learning feints and little tricks is of course also included.

 

Our motto for sparring is: WITH EACH OTHER, NOT AGAINST EACH OTHER. Those who wish to just fight senselessly have definitely not come to the right place.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions about the Hauptstadt Gym

How many years old may I be maximum if I plan to start learning Thai boxing?

In our experience, you’re never too old to start with Thai boxing. At Hauptstadt Gym, we welcome everyone who wants to work-out hard in an informal team.

Will I need any protective gear?

For your test training, you won’t need any protective equipment. However, if you decide to really get started with Thai boxing, we recommend you get this equipment:

 

• Boxing gloves 14 OZ handwraps    • Shin pads    • Mouth protector    • Jock strap

 

Some of these things can be bought right here at Hauptstadt Gym. However, please don’t hesitate to ask us about other products and/or suppliers.

Is it possible to build up muscles through Thai boxing and/or to combine weight training and Thai boxing?

Well, first of all you should clearly decide what will be your priority. If your plan is to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, you won’t be able to get there by training Muay Thai.

But if your goal is an athletic and powerful body, you can well achieve it by combining weight training, martial arts and an appropriate diet.

Experience has shown that 1 to 2 extra weight training units in combination with martial arts are perfect to build up healthy muscles. The ideal solution in this context is our Athletic Performance program.

What is functional training?

This question cannot be answered through one simple definition. 
In your everyday life, when you are walking or jumping, but also when you are playing soccer or doing Thai boxing, various muscles have to interact to transmit power from one part of your body to another.

For us at Hauptstadt Gym, functional training thus means strengthening the body through complex exercises. At the same time, our natural movement patterns are being improved.

Will the Athletic Performance program help me to lose weight?

Generally, YES. However, this has a lot to do with your diet and your willingness to change things. Our coaches will give you the support that you need to achieve your goal!
