Muay Thai Fitness Certification
This is a Kickboxing System for 1-on-1, Small Group and Large Group Formats
100% Online Course – Comprehensive Training – Certification – Complete Career System – Ongoing Support
This is not your typical “cardio kickboxing” class or “dance martial arts workout”. This is hardcore, intense, effective, and a screaming good time!
You will get a comprehensive online video-based training program with 13 detailed online training videos, plus the 13 bonus “Drillers Make Killers” advanced technique videos, sample workouts, and an online multiple-choice exam. After successful completion, you will earn the professional title of “Certified Muay Thai Fitness Coach.”
In the past, martial arts based fitness programs were either too “dance-oriented” or they limited the instructor by only offering a large group format which requires far more space (and often expensive equipment). We realized there must be a better way. Your students want a realistic and challenging martial arts fitness program without the fluff or contact of fighting.
If you are not yet familiar with Muay Thai, it’s the national sport of Thailand, and one of the most effective stand up fighting systems in the world. Practitioners of Muay Thai are incredibly fit and develop strong, athletic bodies. This system of martial arts uses powerful strikes with the hands, elbows, knees, and feet. This is why Muay Thai is known as “The Art of 8 Limbs.”
The recent past…. NESTA partnered with top Muay Thai instructor Bryce Krause. Bryce is a 7x National Pro Champion.
Today… Bryce and NESTA present you with Muay Thai Fitness (also known as MTF).
MTF is perfect for personal trainers, Crossfit boxes, martial arts schools, boot camp operators, group exercise instructors, and big-box gym owners.
The complete training system was specifically designed to work with trainers, coaches and business owners ranging from solo, small budget operations to the big-box/big budget gyms.
ONE-ON-ONE TRAINING: MTF has complete training systems in place for one-on-one coaching requiring very minimal space and budget. Total equipment costs under $100. You may already have gloves.
SMALL GROUP TRAINING: You can also offer small group training classes with 2 – 8 people. Total equipment costs range from $100 – $200.
LARGE GROUP CLASSES: The large group classes can be included with your regular membership, or you can charge a premium for this class. As will all MTF formats, it’s up to you. MTF group classes can range from 9 to 40+ people. If you charge each person $10/class, you earn from $90 – $400+ per hour. Total equipment costs range from $500 – $3,000. Of course, if you work for a gym, they will cover these costs.
REMEMBER: You are given very detailed information about equipment options, pricing, and more. We’ve intentionally designed MTF so you have as many options as possible for training protocol, equipment selection, space in your facility, and budget. YOU HAVE OPTIONS!
Frequently asked questions:
Can I offer MTF outdoors as well?
YES! Of course you will want to ensure the surface is safe. You can train on outdoor hard surfaces and grass just as you would with a boot camp model.
Is this more appealing to men or women?
Just like any other program, the client-base depends on the time of day. In general, classes and privates are 60% men and 40% women in the mid-day, and about 50/50 in the early AM and night classes.
How much martial arts experience is needed?
Martial arts experience is helpful, but not required. The training program gives you everything you need to teach the program. As with any fitness system, you will need to learn the techniques and practice the techniques, so you teach them correctly. This is a fitness program, and you are not training people how to fight in competition.
Can I combine MTF with other fitness techniques/martial arts I know?
To reduce confusion, we suggest keeping the actual “martial arts” portion to just Muay Thai technique. However, you are free to add additional sports warm-ups and dynamic flexibility.
What is different about the “Drillers Make Killers” bonus training?
We want to give you even more value, and help you become an even better instructor. These 13 additional training videos go over more advanced techniques, partner drills, higher-level conditioning and, more. You will review these videos after you feel comfortable with the techniques in the primary program modules.
Where do I get the equipment?
We have a great resource for you. You will be given all this information once you register. Remember, you can start with as little as $100 total investment for equipment. And, if you are an employee at a gym, they will cover those costs.
Are the heavy bags (if I choose to use them) hung from the ceiling or a rack system?
Yes and no. Some bags are hung up, and others are rolled into position and use a water-filled base for stability. You are shown numerous equipment and budget options. You have no barriers.
Do I get the official logo?
YES! Once you pass your online multiple-choice exam, you are given a file to download which has all file formats of the official MTF logo. This is the same logo on your certificate and what you see on this website. You can use it to make T-shirts, business cards, promote your classes on Facebook, and place it on all promotional materials.
