Martial Arts: What's all the fuss?
You may or may not know it, but effective striking martial arts such as Muay Thai and Boxing – Martial Arts are rapidly becoming the most useful way to keep the mind, body and spirit in check for harmony in everyday life.
Combing old school with the new school, with extraordinary coaches, in one fun, safe and convenient location – We bring you the finest in training, nutrition and community to help you achieve your goals. In training with us, you will not only learn valuable self-defence; but also burn more calories than any other workout, super charge your fitness, boost personal confidence, all the while transforming into best version of yourself – Plus so much more.
Google the terms: “Fighter Physique” and you will understand what we mean. You don’t have to get hit/hurt to have the physique of a “Fighter” – Come on the journey with us and we will show you how…
Are people who train young, fit and rough?
No, definitely not. Our clients are regular, everyday normal people (like yourself) who go to work every morning, work a 9 – 5 job, then come to training in the evening. Lucky for them, they have realised how beneficial martial arts training is for their physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. You definitely do not have to be young and fit to start training with us! – Forget what you are now and think about the possibilities of what you can become with a little effort and dedication to bettering yourself. After all, you are your greatest investment.
Will I get hurt?
Safety is most important at Champions Gym. There is no doubt that combative martial arts such as Muay Thai, Boxing and Martial Arts possess an element of danger (as with many of the everyday things we do in life) – But the general classes have been developed in such a way as to avoid the possibilities of physical injury making it suitable to all, especially women, who just want to get fit and reap the benefits of training.
Do I have to be fit before I start training?
No, not at all. Most people start with little fitness and 80% of the people who come to us have either lost motivation, struggle to train on their own and/or want something new, dynamic and in a group setting where they can achieve maximum results.
That’s where we’re unique… Our job is to empower you. Our team is dedicated to working with you, demonstrating the techniques and exercises plain and simply, making it easier for you to understand and overall, making it a pleasurable and satisfying experience.

What if I am late?
