Mike Swick launches first global AKA gym - Thailand
I, along with Javier Mendez and my business partners in Thailand, are building the largest and first global AKA gym. AKA Thailand. We will bring AKA's proven methods of building stars and champions from the ground up, to the place where Muay Thai is king. This collaboration mixed with professional strength and conditioning coaches will make this a camp like no other. This is just the beginning...
We have close to three acres of total land that will have multiple training facilities including covered Muay Thai areas, indoor and out door weight rooms, a huge MMA building and office with 3000sf of mat space, massage and sports therapy, restaurants, bungalows and accommodations, shops and several jungle lounge areas with fire pits and relax stations. This camp will be a community for anyone who wants to reach their goals, be it in fighting, fitness, or weight loss. A place where you can train and hang out with many interesting people from around the world all in one place while getting catered to your every need with great food, coconut waters, massages and post workout therapy sessions. Not to mention, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island is just 5 minutes from the gym.
Though we have a ways to go before opening, its giving us a change to open up social media and share the experience with everyone in real time. I will be back in Phuket this weekend and will be posting updates, videos and pictures of every part of this process. Its quite interesting building this thing and worth sharing.
Here are all of AKA Thailand's sites to follow. Most updates will be on Twitter and Facebook. Thanks guys and I am so excited to finally be doing this thing. I have been working on it for 4 years and now we are doing it! I want this place to be the gym that launches so many careers and creates so much opportunity for the ones deserving it. I can't wait to stand by and watch as each person accomplishes their goals and changes their lives.
Follow the progress via social media, then come out and visit when we get open!
