A long history dating back almost two thousand years. Kings that once ruled Thailand made Thai Boxing (or Muay Thai), part of military training. As Hockey is the Canadian national sport, Thailand recognized Muay Thai as theirs. Muay Thai is referred to as the science of eight limbs as the hands, elbows, shins and knees are all used extensively in this art. Modern-day Kick Boxing (K1) was developed as an introduction to Thai Boxing.
Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight “points of contact”, as opposed to the two points used in boxing and four points used in kickboxing. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when it’s practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts.

I have been a client of P4P for over a year now. Not only do I meet with the P4P instructors for one on one sessions I also take part of his weekly fitness classes. Since starting with P4P, I have lost over 60 pounds and and seen a significant increase in my strength and endurance. Every time I meet with the P4P instructors they challenge me to push myself harder and because of this I able to meet goals I never thought possible. I am lucky to be able to work with the P4P instructors and am truly grateful they are a part of my weight loss journey.
I have been "Sweating with P4P" now since near the beginning of 2013 and have been extremely pleased with my improved level of health and fitness. I was fairly fit when I first came to P4P but felt "stalled" in my quest to take my fitness to the next level. The work-out routines that I have been doing on my own were no longer effective and I felt that I had stalled with regards to my weight-loss and fitness level. I was unsure of how to proceed with regards to the toning and sculpting of my body not to mention becoming bored with the exercises I had come up with on my own. P4P has solved all those dilemmas for me with knowledgeable instruction, introducing effective techniques and a personalized program designed specifically to suit my needs. It's a great relief to show up for my session knowing that the P4P instructors have already planned and effective workout for me and that they will keep tabs on my progress so my work out sessions will continue to be effective. I have chosen to do a work-out session that involves half strength-training and half boxing. I find the boxing, not only a lot of fun, but very physically and mentally challenging. It is an intense cardio work-out that still has my gasping for breath most times! The P4P instructors change up my personal training sessions to keep things interesting, keep my body guessing and to ensure I don't get bored. I am no longer stalled in my fitness goals and have definitely noticed an increase in the toning of my body, my fitness abilities and have dropped a few of those stubborn pounds! The P4P instructors have taught me the proper way to work out and strength train so I am confident I am doing my works out properly and effectively when I'm forced to work out on my own at home. I have found the P4P instructors to be extremely reliable, conscientious, knowledgeable, professional and serious about assisting their clients in achieving their fitness goals. I would highly recommend P4P to anyone who is serious about their health and fitness. Please feel free to contact me for a personal reference for P4P at 905-426-1784.
One of the best ways to start your day is to begin it with a workout bright and early in the morning. P4P's morning class gets you sweating and feeling good. P4P's classes work you hard, using a mixture of cardio as well as strength training. I highly recommend this class as well as other classes they teach. They are great instructors and not only do you learn a lot, you sweat a lot!
I joined P4P on a recommendation from a friend and couldn't be happier with my decision The facility is great and the coaching staff are amazing. Whether you are training to fight or training for fitness, the instructors/coaches will work on your level. It's a very friendly environment and everyone is willing to help you out if you are having difficulty. They also have classes during the day, which a lot of other gyms don't. Enough old things can't be said about this gym! If you are looking to join a gym, look no further than P4P.
