Practicing Muay Thai at any age can be a daunting task, but it’s far more concerning the older you get. These two 47-year-olds prove, though, that age is just a number – and Muay Thai is eternal. . .
MEET SARAH & IBRAHIM. THEY’RE 47-YEARS-OLDS TRAINING MUAY THAI.
One of the most common questions any coach or trainer can be asked is, “Is ____ years-old too old to train?”
Most of the time, the answer will be “No, you can train.” Provided that you’re not badly injured, you should be able to train. Even if you feel like your body is slowing down and feeling its age, you should be able to train at least a little bit. Even a little training is better than no training at all.
But let’s assume that you’re still doubtful or you just need that extra motivational nudge. Here’s the story of two 47-year-old parents who adopted Muay Thai and Evolve MMA into their family and used it to change their lives inside and out:

COUPLES THAT TRAIN TOGETHER REMAIN TOGETHER
A lot of people sign their kids up for martial arts when they’re young. They’ll sign their up for karate classes, kung fu classes, taekwondo classes, and so on. However, the parents should be signing up for martial arts classes themselves.
Training and struggling together brings people together. Plus, if you’re a parent who wants to connect with your child, it pays to have some common ground. Furthermore, it’s just a fun time to be able to switch things up and do something different for a change. And even more than that, you have the incredible health benefits that can come with training.
Our bodies are adaptable things. Even if you’re in very poor shape, you can bring yourself into being in great shape. The moment you stop looking at what you can’t do and start looking at what you can do, you’d be very surprised.
