AKA Facilities Overview
At AKA Thailand, our goal is to provide the most professional, clean, spacious and scenic training facilities for our guests. Much care and attention to detail has gone into the construction of the gym to ensure the quality of our facilities match the unparalleled standard of Muay Thai, MMA, BJJ and Strength & Conditioning training we offer. Not only is our gym the largest of its kind in Thailand, but it is one of the cleanest too. We have a full team of cleaners that thoroughly sanitize every training facility and its equipment after each session.
Muay Thai Facilities
Our Muay Thai program is housed in a 560sm. (6,000sf.) open-air training building. The 8m high roofing provides amazing views of the surrounding jungle and mountainscape and, with our higher elevation, it welcomes a constant cool ocean breeze throughout the day that minimizes the normal impact of Thailand’s heat and humidity during training. The building is also equipped with a state-of-the-art, motorized shade system that can completely enclose the facility for privacy or in case of rain.
We have two super-sized 7.3m x 7.3m Muay Thai rings as well as heavy bags and pull-up bars that line around the whole building. The entire open training area is covered with 20mm thick floor matting to protect the soles of your feet from uncomfortable chafing, tears or cuts.
Our high definition CCTV system has cameras throughout this training area and will soon broadcast exclusive training and VIP sessions live on our website.
Our MMA and BJJ programs run inside of our 460sm. (5,000sf.) main training building. The facility is air-conditioned and has over 280sm. (3,000sf.) of Mooto Roll-Out training mats, and the walls are lined with Dollamur pro wall pads on all training sides. The room is equipped with NASA-inspired LUNA air purifiers, and the mats, gear, walls, and all other pieces of equipment are fully sanitized three times a day. There is plenty of space on our surrounding tile flooring to store your training bags, water and gear.
Fitness Building & Weight Room Facility
Our state-of-the-art fitness building consists of two floors, each measuring 140sm. (1,500sf.)
Weight Room Facility
The first floor is a fully equipped weight and cardio room with commercial-grade Life Fitness treadmills and elliptical machines, Cybex and Hammer Strength weight training equipment, and a variety of free weights. We are fully stocked with dumbbells, kettlebells and medicine balls, all of which were imported from the United States. We have everything you need to suit your workout.
AKA Airdyne Cardio Blast
The second floor of our fitness building is designated for fighter training and our AKA Airdyne Cardio Blast circuit. This is where our world-renowned Airdyne workouts give our guests and fighters the most intense cardio workout imaginable. If you have watched any UFC countdown shows with AKA fighters, you have seen them doing this workout, and now you can try it yourself. The room also features 140sm. (1,500sf.) of additional Dollamur mat space, as well as six heavy bags, ten Schwinn AD6 Airdyne bikes, two uppercut bags, and an array of strength and conditioning, cardio exercise equipment. This space is also used for our Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoon yoga recovery sessions.
The AKA Thailand outdoor basketball court, located behind the Muay Thai area, is a good place to get some sun and fresh air while team-building with fellow students. It has a beautiful mountain and jungle backdrop, and the half-court conforms to exact NBA dimensions. The hoop has a breakaway rim, fiberglass backboard, and several basketballs that are available upon request at our reception area.
