In March 2018, Muay Thai focused method, Hit House opened in Nolita in a luxurious boutique studio. Created by husband and wife co-founders, Tyler Scott and Dana VanPamelen this studio offers Traditional Muay Thai kickboxing and Private Training.
Hit House is the first of its kind concept, focused on bringing the world of Muay Thai into group classes. This fitness method is disrupting the fitness landscape by making Muay Thai accessible to all types of fitness enthusiasts at all levels.
Classes are led by Muay Thai fighters turned trainers, the 50 minute fast paced, full-body workout class is designed to improve your cardio, muscle tone and fight skills with every punch, kick, knee and elbow. From the very beginner to the experienced fighter, all will find this class challenging and fun.
Tyler co-designed an exclusive floor to ceiling bag with Century Martial Arts called Bishop - hybrid heavy bag/fight dummy, designed to lessen the impact and prevent injury (and no bruises!). Bishop incorporates elements from four of the most commonly used bags in string-based martial arts. By combining these bags into one, this allows class members to train with lightweight gloves and leave the studio sans bruises.
It's made with a dense foam and doesn't swing from a chain, rather it bends and flexes with your strikes so you'll be able to throw more, full power combinations and really improve your technique.
Prior to practicing combinations, they teach form so you won't feel lost during the class. Classes include energizing pop and hip-hop mashups playing through their high-quality sound
system. The goal is for everyone to leave class with a feeling of accomplishment and self-confidence. The 4,800 sqft studio is designed by Hyphen & Co. and is inspired by a modern,
boutique hotel with industrial finishes, clean lines, and Thai inspired greenery.
With plans for expansion in multiple studios, the Nolita location offers men and women's locker rooms with showers, full refresh bar, lockers, state-ofthe-art sound system, exclusive Hit House apparel, gloves (rental at $2, for purchase at $20) and Hit House quick wraps (purchase for $2).
