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 fast­paced, 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).
