Ready for training this week – we have the mats down, the bags hung and the ring ready to go!
The training area is fully matted – we have 4 super heavy, repacked SMAI 6 foot bags on the wall rack – weighing between 55kg and 75kg. These bags are GREAT for conditioning the shins and developing POWERFUL KICKS!
Against the other wall, we have 2 free-hanging PUNCH 4 foot bags for working punching and upper-body striking skills. These bags are lighter and have great swing and response for ELBOW strikes and PUNCH strikes.
The boxing ring area has 5cm thick mats to cushion falls from sweeps and throws. The ring is a 4.5m square area, quad-roped with corner padding.
Currently, we have 2 spin bikes and a stepper for aerobic equipment, but we plan to bring in 3 treadmills as well to get that ROADWORK done indoors on those FREEZING Goulburn nights!
Picked up our CUSTOM muaythai HEAVY bag rack today – 5 meters total length – we drove this back from MT. DRUITT to the GYM in GOULBURN.
CUSTOM WELDED heavy duty SOLID STEEL rack! Perfect for our thai boxing bags!
Total time 5 hours = WORTH IT! This rack will support FOUR SIX FOOT muaythai heavy bags at ~50KG EACH, it will look GREAT in the GYM!
CAN’t wait to get this setup and start TRAINING!
We have been hard at it this week getting the gym up and running – the space is HUGE, but being an older building the first step is a complete REPAINT.
We went with a simple fresh coat of white on the walls, and a dark grey on the ceiling.
The job chewed up the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, but I’m sure our students will think its worth it considering the ugly BLUE that was underneath.
It’s looking like it’s going to be a GREAT MUAYTHAI training environment, with the new PAINT job bringing out the POTENTIAL in the GYM that we have ENVISIONED!
CAN’T WAIT TO GET IN AND START KICKING THE BAGS!
