Southside Muay Thai & Fitness was established in 2002.

The gym supports a strong community feel, based on long lasting friendships. We enforce a a friendly and ego-free environment, where males and females from all cultures are equally welcome.

The gym has produced numerous state, national and international title holders at both the amateur and professional level. Much of this success is owed to the collaborative and hands on approach of the coaches, where mental preparation is paramount.
