If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of. – Bruce Lee
Was window shopping at Orchard the other day when something caught my eyes.
That row of sandbags at Orchard Central. And a bunch of guys doing roundhouse kicks on them.
A few conversations later with the staff ended up with me signing up for a complimentary class with Evolve MMA.
The complimentary class gives you a taste, or rather a preview, of what is to be expected from the gym.
It was just a 30 minutes preview, where the Muay Thai instructor taught me some basics for the punches and kicks. It was just 30 minutes, but it was enough to drain all of my energy, and left me with sore feet.
A flat fees of membership allows you to :
Unlimited use of the gym and facilities – open daily including public holidays.
Clean toilets and shower rooms – a plus for those who are very particular on cleanliness.
Coaching by the world champions themselves – impressive line up of the instructors.
A vast field of martial arts – Muay Thai, Brazilian Jujitsu, boxing, mixed martial arts.
Social well-being – it is not just a gym. It is more than a gym. A community to hang out with, to bond together, to train together.
The last one is the most impressive thing. People have this misconception, according to the staff, that gym is a very individualistic approach, where you train by yourself.
As with anything individual, you need to be very focused and determined, else you would quit half way. Instead of making things difficult for yourself, why not take a more efficient approach – by joining the like-minded community who help to support each other?
It is a good experience, if you can afford the classes.
If you have doubt, sign up for a complimentary class first and judge for yourself if it suits your need.
Another plus point is that the staff is friendly and not pushy in asking you to join the gym.
Do you join a gym now? What would be the things you are looking for, the main considerations for you?
