Great Place to be

Great place to go to.
My trainer Pong is helpful and gives you enough to challenge you, but still make it enjoyable.
I have been here 4 times and always enjoy it.
I mainly just do Muay Thai, but speaking to others the other classes are just as good.

Stayed a month
Jun 2019
This places ranges from basic entry level training from renting a small room with no shower or toilet to renting a villa across the street--which I did. I received a full day of training 6 days a week. I went there in great shape and left in better shape but a little beaten up. The gym is super clean and well maintained. The food is excellent and there is everything you can imagine to do. I would highly suggest renting a scooter, exploring the town and going to the beach often.

My annual pilgrimage to the world famous Tiger Muay Thai and as per usual it did not disappoint. This was my 4th trip to the gym that is located in Chalong, Phuket and as always I was met by the customary warm welcome from Jolen, Kru Robert and the reception staff at TMT.

As a Muay Thai obsessive who dabbles in a spot of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training, Tiger Muay Thai always makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. Tiger’s training schedule is jam packed boasting daily Boxing, Muay Thai, BJJ and CrossFit classes. Their top-notch facilities which span a monstrous 100,000 square feet allowed me to train alongside some of the best martial artists from around the globe. Working with the likes of Kru Robert (Muay Thai), Stuart Cooper (BJJ) and Joy Somers (Fitness coach) was highly beneficial and only serves to enhance my experience.

Although I have been training there since 2015 this trip marked the first time I opted to stay “onsite” at TMT camp 5, which is located just a few minutes walk away from the gym. The accommodation was basic, but super clean, comfy and came with free cable TV. Unfortunately during my 3-week stay I became ill for 4 days while I was there, but thankfully the staff went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable, my cleaning lady even going as far as to make sure I got the medication I needed and that I was fed during my illness. I would definitely recommend training at Tiger Muay Thai and I look forward to making my 5th trip to my home away from home. A truly amazing experience Kop Khun Kha!

Top Training Destination
Nov 2019
Tiger Muay Thai is the top weight-lose and martial arts destination in Thailand and probably worldwide. Within 14 days I trained with Poles, Russians, Chinese, Japanese, Canadians, Australians, US-Americans, Dutch, Afghans, Lebanese, Germans, Thai, English and French. The training is demanding and very well sheltered. There is something for everyone. The food in the Tiger Grill is ok, but outside the food is usually better and cheaper. But all in all, I have been very satisfied with my stay.

They have a new 2nd camp tiger muay thai beach side thats on chalong bay. Disgusting. Avoid staying at the Hivetel Hotel and booking training here. No vibe and half the classes listed on the website were not even running.
It’s not by a beachside it’s next to chalong bay pier which is disgusting water you can not swim in. Photos on tiger website are photo shopped. Check the photos i uploaded to see what the ‘beach side’ really looks like. AVOID!

Some great coaches but very intimidating and unhelpful reception staff
Sep 2019 • Solo
I travelled to Chalong with the intention of training at Tiger Muay Thai for the entire month I was staying in Thailand.

Before my stay I emailed Tiger to ask if I could tailor one of the packages. I got a generic email response back that didn’t answer my question at all. I called the office and got no response, so decided to email again. This time I got a reply, from the head coach, telling me he wasn’t able to train me. But this was lucky because I was put in touch with an amazing trainer and this was the only positive from my time at TMT.

Reception. Some of the staff in the office are the rudest I have come across. I live in Dubai and customer service is notoriously bad here, but this was another level. I made the mistake of trying to top up my PT card the day before my session. Three girls were sitting in the office, during office opening hours, but refused to take my payment. My training was due to start at 7am, the same time the office opens. So this meant I’d lose some of my session. But they had clearly decided they weren’t doing anymore work that day and sent me on my way. This was my first impression of Tiger and almost put me off going back at all.

Office opening hours: if anyone from Tiger reads this, please update the hours on your website to the hours the office is actually available. I went on two Saturdays during what is published as your opening hours and on both occasions I was refused service. This means I now still have my PT card and was unable to return it and get my refund. The excuse the second time being that they had already closed the tills (it was 3pm and it is advertised as being open until 7pm).

Class sizes. There is no cap on the classes. This means that they can be really busy compared to the other gyms in the area. If this doesn’t bother you and you love a big class then you will love training at Tiger. If you prefer a bit more attention or have some form that needs correcting, then you might want to train elsewhere.

The main reason for the low rating is what happened on my last PT session. I was trying to discuss with my trainer how I would take what I had learned home and build on it. But half way through this discussion the head coach walked in and kicked us out of the office so he could sort his diary. This left a really bad impression for me. It really feels like Tiger is all about the marketing and big numbers rather than actually caring about your individual experience.

After five days of training I was diagnosed with Epidemic Keratoconjunctivitis (EKC). It is a contagious eye infection, often referred to as viral conjunctivitis. EKC is an inflammation of the cornea and conjunctiva. (In pink eye or conjunctivitis, only the conjunctiva is inflamed.) It is highly contagious and can last as long as a month. I am out of work and on quarantine until this clears up.

Hygiene of some those training is disgusting. Trainees are not screened for illnesses, this should happen before very class by a nurse. Yes the mats are cleaned after every class, but this does not help common areas, or interacting with the students. There are cats and dogs all over this facility, which can rampantly spread diseases.

Tiger Muay Thai stated that they cannot control what students bring in to the area and denied to take any action like decontaminating the facility and screening students. Basically, they are only worried about $$$

LENGTHY, DETAILED REVIEW: Ok, could be better
Aug 2019
So you're thinking about picking a Muay Thai gym on your vacation to Thailand? Here's a TL;DR Tiger is pretty good but there are other gyms like Dragon that offer more affordable instruction. If you want a visual experience I suggest watching Brad Newton's Youtube videos. Tiger's marketing is the best and primarily why it's where all the foreigners hang out. While I didn't stay at their facilities I am fairly sure it's a frathouse experience if you take everything into consideration. While I was out in Phuket I only trained here and at Dragon.

* There is serious talent in this gym, from the trainers to the students. One of the trainers is a 2000 Fighter of the Year winner and used to head AKA Thailand's Muay Thai program. There are Thai teenagers that can throw it down, I highly suggest watching them.
* You will get a great work out. I did the beginner Muay Thai classes and combined with the heat you will be drenched with sweat. There are other classes and while everybody reading this is different it wouldn't be a stretch to say you could do an amateur fight within 2 months if you take Tiger's classes 8 hours per day.
* The night yoga class is interesting. I have done yoga back here in the States and the instructor (don't know his name) is seriously good. He's the most flexible yoga instructor I have ever seen. I wonder if yoga training is the same as Muay Thai training where you put in an insane amount of time to become the best. He begins with what I presume is a Thai chant and walks you through yoga sequences. You then end with the lights off and a Thai chant.
* There's a fun aspect to Tiger. The trainers joke around, play pranks on each other, and I attended a class where we had a tug of war session. People from all over the world train here. I've met people from Singapore, USA, China, Japan, and Mexico. There are beach party events once a week. I got the opportunity to do the 3 mile Big Buddha run and it was exhausting. At about the first quarter mile it will feel like you are getting punched in the stomach and there are some steep inclines at the first 2 miles. After you're done you get a ride back to Tiger.

* This point is directed at the people that have other martial arts experience. I have about a year of western style boxing and generally speaking that has little bearing on Muay Thai training. The stances are different and boxing has no kick defenses. I throw my jabs with my shoulder up (to protect my chin) and some of the instructors didn't like that. In my opinion I think you can combine boxing with Muay Thai but your mileage may vary when coming into Thailand to do that. Some trainers will want you to ditch your non-Muay Thai experience and I don't agree with that. While they may have 50+ if not hundreds of fights under their belt some Thai fighters like Buakaw and Fairtex incorporate western boxing in their training.
* Tiger is expensive. Day passes are $35 per day for all access so if you only attend one class and call it a day you might as well not sign up for this gym. When I trained at Tiger I worked out 4-7 hours per day. If you're already in shape and want to do Muay Thai other places are cheaper options.
* It's physically rough. Some people can go hard while sparring so if you don't like getting punched in the face you might not like this. Even in the beginner classes at the end of the session we did group situps and the instructors would hit the guys in the stomach with pads. I also got swept and kicked around during the drills by the instructors. I would not recommend doing this if you have an injury.
* The online correspondence if terrible. While I didn't book any packages I have contacted them with questions prior to making the trip out to Thailand as well as asking for videographer services. Nobody ever answered my emails.

If I could do it all over again:
If I were to do it with Tiger or other gyms for the matter I would go for longer terms like a week or a month. Day passes are expensive but a great way to feel out a gym. You live and learn and for the most part Tiger wasn't bad.

Could be better - here’s why
Aug 2019
The facility is impressive and is huge with a varied choice of classes to attend. I attended the intermediate Muay Thai classes, they are a great workout and superb for fitness and conditioning. However, I was never once corrected on any technique by apart from by a single trainer. I attended around 10 classes and to be honest most of the trainers seemed very disengaged, even when holding pads they would not be proactive in giving advice. This was also the experience of my 3 friends. It appears to me that most of the trainers do not really have their heart in the job and are just going through the motions doing less than what I would consider the minimum.

I also attended the strength and conditioning classes, I thought these were brilliant and the trainers were keen to share knowledge and were very enthusiastic. I felt the same about the boxing fundamentals class. The kickboxing class was also good.

In summary I would happily give this place 5 stars were it not for the fact the Muay Thai coaches do not actually coach you. Whilst I got in some great workouts I am not sure how much my technique improved and I was disappointed not to leave with lots of nuggets of information.
