96 PENANG MUAY THAI camp. Bangkok, Thailand.

I'm in Thailand, so of course I had to go train some Muay Thai. A friend of mine who comes here regularly to train recommended the 96 PENANG gym, which is under the highway in the slums of Klong Toey here in Bangkok. This is not the kind of gym that we are used to seeing in the west. This is just bare bones, everything falling apart, the conditions are pretty harsh. And the harshest thing about training here is definitely the heat and humidity. If you think you're in good shape, you should come to Thailand during the rainy season for a reality check. At first I thought I was gonna die, but it's getting better ... baby steps though. 

Here are some snaps from the gym
