After being on an extended training break from Thai boxing I am able to see and appreciate the benefits of my training more so than the first time around. I am more energetic and active during the day. Instead of spending my nights in front of a TV or computer, I find myself running to train. I love the feeling after a great class, and that feeling alone is enough to keep me from snacking.
Martial arts to me is about self defense and awareness. The physical benefits such as weight loss and muscle toning are an added bonus. Being able to train with my husband and the friends I have made motivates me to push thru even the hardest of classes or personal obstacles.
I am so thankful for all the phone calls & encouragement pushing me to get back on the mat. Looking forward to continuing this journey to black belt!
