Patong Boxing Gym has changed locations quite a few times and they’ve come along way since their humble beginnings as a small gym on Soi Kepsup (small street packed with suit tailors and massage girls). They have expanded quite a bit since then and now have dozens of onsite rooms available for students as well as a poor overlooking the ocean.
Patong Boxing Gym is now located on the road between Patong and Karon beach. A motorbike would be ideal if you’re training here because the “tuk tuk’s” in Phuket (which you would need to get into down) can be quite expensive. Here is a map to the gym.
As mentioned above, the gym has quite a few rooms onsite to accommodate their students. Each of the rooms has quite a nice view and the all-in price (recently increased) for training & accommodation is 50,000 baht per month.
Alternatively, if you’re on a budget or staying long term, you can pay the monthly rate for training (which is 10,000 baht) and seek out an apartment in Patong instead. If you look around, you should be able to find a nice room at a good price. You should be able to find some decent Thai style accommodation for 5000 baht per month and upwards.
Training Info & Photos
Like the majority of the gyms in Phuket, Patong Boxing Gym is very welcoming to beginners and the training is structured in a way that’s slightly different from most of the other camps.
Instead of having everyone show up at the same time for training, you basically book an appointment with the trainer ahead of time and you get a 1 hour time slot allocated to you where you will get up to 5 rounds on the pads plus some additional instruction.
