PRIDE Muay Thai: Killer workouts that'll keep you coming back

If you take the time out of your busy life to exercise, you may as well break a sweat. A workout at PRIDE Muay Thai is worth every second.

Catering to newbies, longtime members and even entire families, the martial arts school offers courses in Muay Thai (a combat sport that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques), MMA/grappling, boot camps and the ever-popular cardio kickboxing programs. They also have a weight room you can use for pumping iron.

PRIDE is an acronym for Passion, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence, and the husband-wife duo of Wayne and Charleen Pokornik take those values seriously. The power couple, who both work as instructors, opened their first studio in 2012 and outgrew their original space in only two years. Their popularity is no surprise; they treat their members like family and want the dojo to feel like a home away from home. Outside of classes, they host potlucks, movie nights and parking lot parties to spend even more time with their members.

Located in Transcona, PRIDE offers a variety of memberships for both kids and adults. All of the programs offer flexible and affordable packages that can be customized to fit your needs and budget. Memberships are available for one, three, six or 12 months.

If you’re hoping to become the next big kickboxing star, they also offer personalized competitive training. And it’s safe to say you’ll be learning from the best; Wayne has tons of experience in the ring, with more than 20 fights under his belt.

If you’ve ever wanted to try martial arts (or just want to get back into that exercise routine), now is the perfect time. PRIDE is giving We Heart Winnipeg members 20% off any introductory membership (or 10% off any retail purchase). Go get your sweat on!
