Both eastern and western cultures recognize that diet, activity, and relaxation (stress management) are key factors in each persons health and wellbeing. Highly qualified personal trainers will offer individual assessments before creating individual programs, which address every personal health and fitness goal.
Cardiovascular and strength bodyweight training is a total-body workout that involves performing a series of different exercises in one training session, alternating between intervals of strength training, and cardiovascular exercise. Because the workout includes both strength and cardio training, exercisers will realize the benefits of both types of exercise. The end result is that circuit training improves general conditioning, body composition, muscular endurance, muscular strength, and cardiovascular fitness.
Train the body, mind, and heart. Physical conditioning is useless without developing concentration and dedication. Show patience and persistence with yourself and others.As your physical strength, coordination, and stamina develop, you will also notice improvements in your determination, patience, and self-control. Take a deep breath and relax, it's a piece of advice that yogis have given for thousands of years. Now the hard science has caught up, for a comprehensive scientific study showing that deep relaxation changes our bodies on a genetic level has just been published.
Wing Tsun is a sophisticated Chinese martial art originally devised by a woman. Practitioners therefore, need not be physically stronger or faster than a potential attacker. Students learn principles that can be applied to many areas of life, including verbal confrontations. Wing Tsun builds on your existing potential to get to know your strengths and to put them to use. You will gain a new awareness of your body, self-assurance, and an awareness of capabilities and potential.

Palapon is located in a superb setting between the famous Thai resorts of Hua Hin and the fabulous Takiab Beach. A natural landscape provides the perfect setting for a motivational and challenging martial arts and holistic fitness holiday for you to relish and test every mental and physical goal.
Hua Hin is Thailand's oldest beach town resort. Situated on the west coast of the Gulf of Thailand and only 200 km from the capital, Bangkok, it offers the ultimate getaway destination for the city's elite. The camp is just 5 km outside of Hua Hin, ensuring a peaceful retreat with the possibility of eventful evenings in Hua Hin itself.
Breakfast is included in the prices, together with drinking water and coffee. Students are responsible for the other meals of the day. However, there are plenty of choices of local restaurants serving local to Western food around the camp.
As Hua Hin is located on the western side of the Gulf of Thailand, it's hardly surprising that it is well-endowed with some great beaches. Hua Hin beach itself runs for approximately 7 km south of the main entrance at The Sofitel Hotel, all the way to Khao Takiab. Water sports are becoming more popular and include jet skiing, kite boarding, waterskiing, etc.
About 20 km south of Hua Hin is Khao Tao and Sai Noi beach and another 20 km southwards is Khao Kalok. Finally, to the south is Ao Manao that is situated just outside of the provincial capital, Prachuabkirikhan. The beach is safe for all and there are plenty of restaurants lining this pretty bay.
Further south of Hua Hin you will find Khao Takiab beach, which is quieter than Hua Hin and further still you'll arrive at Suan Son beach, so named after the trees that line it - it's best to picnic here as catering is not so common. To the north of Hua Hin is the resort town of Cha-Am. This has a decent beach that again is safe for swimming and where you will find a good choice of beach restaurants.
Thailand is some 95% Buddhist and so temples are a common sight all over the country and Hua Hin is no exception to this rule. The main temple is Wat Hua Hin (or Wat Ampharam) that is located in the centre of town. Other notable ones include Wat Bor Fai that is around 5km north of Hua Hin and where you can feed the large, sacred catfish for a small donation to the monks.
Other impressive examples of temple architecture can be found on the Pala-U road heading west out of Hua Hin at the top of the hill. You can see some wonderful examples of Buddha statues at Wat Khao Krailas and Wat Petchravud here. Another good town to visit if you're interested further is Khao Takiab.
The current monarch King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikitt now both mainly reside at their summer palace in Hua Hin. Known as Klaikangwon Palace, meaning "far from worries", this residence is only accessible by invitation and there is an exclusion zone around it that stretches out to sea. It was built in Spanish style architecture in 1929 and the gardens are beautifully manicured and full of art from Java.
Slightly further north is Maruekatayawan Palace. This was designed by His Majesty King Rama VI in 1923 and is a superb example of classic raised Thai architecture. Of particular note are three two-storied wooden pavilions facing out to sea. Halls are linked together throughout the palace and there are residential areas for royal consort members and naturally for The Royal Family.
The Palace is a must-see whilst you are in Hua Hin for a real glimpse back into Thailand's Royal past. The Palace is now fully restored and prides itself on being the longest golden teak palace in the world. You can find it within a few minute's drive north of Hua Hin. Hua Hin's popularity began to increase in the 1920's as the railway line from Bangkok was constructed and King Rama VI built Klai Kangwon Palace as a summer retreat.
Hin Lek Fai: If you're looking for some spectacular views of Hua Hin, you need search no further than Khao Hin Lek Fai (Flintstone Hill).
Animal park: A little known animal park/zoo lies around 10 km north of Hua Hin. It appears to be setup as a government funded "deer research center" so there is no English language signs to or in the place.
Cicada market: The market has recently opened on the corner of Soi Moo Ban Nong Kae and Khao Takieb Hua Hin Road in Khao Takieb. This colourful new addition to the local cultural scene features soft music, an artists' market, good food and drink, and plenty of shopping.
The Vic Hua Hin Art Complex: Situated a few kilometers south of the Khao Takieb flyover, this complex features an air-conditioned theatre, performing arts, workshops, visual art exhibitions, and film screenings.
Plearnwan Eco Vintage Village: Found on the left hand side of Petchkasem Road, just north of the traffic lights at the King's Palace, this complex covers two floors offering a glimpse back into Hua Hin's past. You can shop for clothes, food, and souvenirs, while at the weekend there is an open air cinema.
