SOUTHSIDE Muay Thai and Fitness

Our Gym:

Is at Shop 12 Black Forest Shopping Centre, 715 – 727 South Rd (Corner of Byron Rd), Black Forest SA 5035. We have a fully equipped gym, large facilities and a vast offering of classes for people with differing schedules. We are conveniently located less than a few kms from the Adelaide CBD.

Southside Muay Thai & Fitness opened their doors in 2002 by Head Instructor Barry Saunders (Baz). A relatively young but blossoming gym, Baz and his partners have built a strong community and training school based on long lasting friendships with the same enthusiasm for the sport of Muay Thai. Childhood friend and fellow owner/instructor Coach Kar Wong in 2005 joined forces with Baz to bring his extensive Muay Thai boxing and fitness skills over to Southside Gym. Possessing quick hands and a punishing work ethic, Coach Kar extends to students a different edge and specialist training in fitness, strength and conditioning.

Our philosophy at SSMT is that training should be fun while at the same time challenging each individual to exceed their own expectations and pushing them to achieve their goals (whatever they may be).

If you’re not having fun you’re not doing it right.

We welcome all ages and no experience is necessary.
