WHAT TO EXPECT
Show up to our studio on Spring & Bowery 10 minutes early to check in. Come hydrated (you're going to sweat!) and with comfortable workout clothes. We have locker rooms if you need to get changed and lockers to safely stash your personal belongings. You don't need sneakers (barefoot class, you can wear socks if you prefer) but you will need gloves and hand wraps (we provide both for purchase or rental). We have a chilled and filtered water station for you to fill up your water bottles.
Once you enter the studio, find your Bishop. Class will begin with active warm up and guided instruction on how to correctly throw jabs, crosses, hooks, uppercuts, kicks, knees and elbows. Muay Thai allows the use of all of these strikes. Class will be spent breathing and sweating through combinations. The instructor will be demonstrating, assisting and pushing you. Class will wind down with a cool down and stretch.
We have a great air system, so you'll be sweating because of your workout (and not because of the stuffy room). We also have a high-tech sound system that will be playing motivating music (no assaulted ear drums).
During the 50 minute class, you'll have improved your cardio, strength and striking skills.
What is Muay Thai?
Muay Thai translates to "Thai Boxing." Muay Thai is Thailand's traditional martial art, allowing the use of fists, elbows, knees and feet (the "art of 8 limbs").
What is class like?
Class is 50 minutes long and is a fast-paced, full-body workout. Our instructors have fight experience and will lead you through different combinations on our custom and exclusive Bishop heavy bag, set to motivating music. You will learn proper form, get a cardio and strength workout and feel like a bad*ss.
What if its my first time?
Welcome! Our friendly front desk will check you in and give you a tour of the facility (please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the start of class). Gloves are required (available to rent for $2). Class is barefoot. You can create a Hit House account prior to class (and be sure to take advantage of our first class special for only $20).
I'm scared. I don't want to get punched in the face.
In class, the only opponent you are fighting is yourself. Don't be intimidated; you'll be guided through class by experienced trainers and only striking Bishop (no bruises, no black eyes).
I'm out of shape. I'm scared class will be too hard.
Our class was designed for all levels, from very beginner to professional fighters. Your instructor will teach you proper form for every strike and you can go at your own pace during combinations. As long as you're breathing, you'll be fine! (Maybe even smile a bit.)
Can I choose what Bishop I beat up?
Yes! Want to be close to the door, by the window or next to a friend? No problem. Once you purchase a class credit, you can book your Bishop by viewing our studio floor plan.
Is this a traditional fight camp?
Hit House is not a traditional fight gym. We are offering Muay Thai as a drop-in group class format inside a luxury studio with boutique fitness amenities. Fight-based fitness that is challenging and also really fun (at least, we think so). Interested in enhancing your Muay Thai skills or learn one-on-one? Check out our personal training options.
I'm stuck at work. Can I cancel class?
You can cancel up to 12 hours prior to class without penalty. Last minute emergency or sickness? Please call or e-mail us. For your safety and the safety of others, we can only accomodate late entry during the first 10 minutes of class.
