Thailand attracts thousands of tourists every year to learn Muay Thai, the world-famous martial art. But this isn’t the only physical activity drawing folks to this fitness paradise, teeming with health spas, resorts, and some of the most experienced trainers on the planet.
Active travelers in the know head to Phuket (pronounced Poo-ket), an island located on Thailand’s southwest coast in the Andaman Sea that offers sea kayaking, SCUBA diving, mountain biking, and rock climbing — not to mention fitness facilities built for a special breed of tourists like Ryan Dickson, a Canadian MMA fighter who comes here to train and enjoy the “warm climate and friendly people.”
Here, with the help of Chris Allen, Phuket’s leading fitness specialist who also manages Atmanjai Detox and Wellness Center, is a four-day fitness itinerary for travelers who can’t imagine a vacation without the sweat.
