Chiang Mai, the capital of Northern Thailand, is the perfect host for your boot camp experience. The early morning mist mesmerizes, the crisp mountain air invigorates. Spread along the banks of the Ping River, Chiang Mai is a treasure house of jungle covered mountains, caves, waterfalls, hot springs, and a vibrant city offering local and international restaurants, night life, and shopping.
Chiang Mai is the hub of Northern Thailand and with a population of over 1 million in the metropolitan area, it is fifth-largest city in Thailand. It is surrounded by mountains and verdant countryside, situated on a plain at an elevation of 316 meters. Chiang Mai is a lot quieter than the capital and has a feeling of modernity about it. Many expats live in the Chiang Mai region and it is known by locals as the Rose of the North.
Chiang Mai is a cultural and historical city. Its historical center is the walled city, in which there are more than 30 temples dating back to the founding of the principality. Naga staircases, leonine and angelic guardians, gilded umbrellas and pagodas laced with precious metal filigree also abound. Modern-day Chiang Mai has expanded in all directions, but most prominently to the east. Here you will find Chang Klan Rd, the famous Night Bazaar, and where the bulk of Chiang Mais accommodation and night life is located.
Kaewsa Resort is situated just outside of Chiang Mai in Mae Rim. Kaewsa Resort is 20 minutes away from the city and less than 5 kilometers from all the outdoor attractions such as MaeSa Elephant Camp, Tiger Kingdom, MaeSa Waterfall, botanical gardens, snake and monkey attractions, X-Center, bungee jump, go kart, paintball, shooting range, and many more.
Mae Rim is ideally situated between city and mountains, 15 kilometers from Chiang Mai, within minutes from national parks, and famous tourist attractions. Within easy reach from Kaewsa Resort, you will find the local market, 7-11, Tops and Tesco stores, pharmacies, food stalls, local restaurants, as well as fine dining and lots of coffee shops.
Special attention is given to each of your meals to support your health, strength, and well-being. The menus consist of 51 ingredients, each ingredient listed in detail for you to read. Ingredients are chosen with care and each meal precisely weighed. In addition to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you will have two fruits of your choice and two protein shakes each day.

"I am very happy to have Muay Thai training in Gym Bangarang. All the staffs here are friendly. The trainer is super, he help me a lot to improve my physical strength. He also has great knowledge about boxing and his teaching is fine, you will never get boring while training, and for me, i even looking forward to the next class. The training here are all mostly one on one, so you can ensure quality.The facility is decent. The gym is equipped with wide range of dumbbell, kettlebell, gym ball, and so on. The best thing here is the environment, here is so clean, everything are well kept. The surrounding is rice field, which make myself feel relax, plenty of fresh air. I stay in the gym accommodation, the bungalow is so huge with comfy bed, TV, AC, and small fridge to keep water cold.I recommend this gym especially for the person who would like to have first Muay Thai experience. I am sure you guys will fall in love with Muay Thai after you have a class here. I also recommend the training for those who want to sculpt your body, as my own experience practicing Muay Thai here for 2 weeks and get lost 3 kg. Super!!."
"I only trained with Bangarang for a week but I wish I could have stayed longer. Although I am a beginner and previously had no formal Muay Thai training, I found that the trainers were very accommodating and informative. Not only did I get a good workout each day but also I increased flexibility and gained some basic Muay Thai skills that I hope to bring back home.The facilities are top notch. Very clean and organized, there are sinks and showers very close to the training facilities to wash up just after workouts. The training floor was swept multiple times a daynot to mention the awesome view of the mountains and rice paddies right from where you train. I stayed at a villa on site and was very satisfied with my stay.It was very nice to have the training facilities right outside my door, especially for how short my stay was. Had I stayed longer, I would have taken the time to learn how to ride and rent a motorbike. Because the gym is a couple miles outside of the city of Chiang Mai, it can be difficult to get to certain touristy areas if that is what you are into.It was very nice to be in the smaller and quieter town of Mae Rim, but if I were staying longer, being able to transport myself in a timely matter would have been essential. Bicycles are available for those who, like me, did not have time to learn how to ride a motorbike. That being said, I had an awesome time training with Tommy for the week that I was there. I will certainly never forget and will surely miss training in paradise."
"Amazing experiences in Gym Bangarang, qualified trainers, beautiful location over looking rice fields and mountains, great food and drinks, this place feels like a community where you get support to achieve your fitness goals. My favorite activities? Muay Thai classes and the Cardio training (cycling, kettle bells, and croossfit). It is a great place, I highly recommend it!"

"We stopped by this facility for an introduction to Muay Thai. We weren't looking for a hard workout but just to understand the sport a little. What they did with us exceeded our expectations. Phil took the time with the three of us and individually and patiently taught us some moves. Then, he put us in the ring for 3 minutes for us to get a taste of what that's like. Phil was awesome at instructing us and adjusting what he did to suit each individual's ability. Such a friendly and encouraging person! The facility is in a picturesque location and we wish them success as they grow!"

"Just finished up my first workout here. It's been a while since I've worked out legitimately, and I got whooped. The trainer I worked with was a British guy named Phil. He was awesome and supportive throughout, especially with my preference for a slow paced training and affinity for breaks. He still motivated me way more than I would have pushed myself, which is what I wanted. We did a bit of sparring in the ring after the cardio which was a lot of fun. If I had to say anything slightly negative, it's a bit out of town, but it only really took a while because of the road work. Easily worth the trip though. I'll definitely be going back soon."
