You’ll get to experience their humble Buddhist way of life, soaking up local traditions and of course enjoying the fresh, local food. Hidden gems, such as secret waterfalls and temple caves surround the area, you’ll be sure to discover some amazing off the beaten track spots.

Battle Conquer is set in such a wonderful rural location in the province of Phetchabun, abundant with lush green farmland, views of the distant Phetchabun Mountains, and local places of interest such as the cave temple and jungle waterfall to explore; it’s tailored for you to truly unwind from modern-day life while you focus on your health and fitness.

The Keawma family has been involved in fighting, training, and promoting Muay Thai for decades, they accept all levels of fitness and experience making it perfect for all, age and ability are no barrier! The name of the gym itself comes from the Thai saying Phichit Suk, said to fighters for good luck and translating to “battle conquer.”

Noi (owner) and her family run and manage the camp, Noi has a background in hospitality having worked for some of Bangkok’s top hotels and father Pau has trained fighters for many years and is well known for prepping fighters for competition.

Battle Conquer is not just about Muay Thai and regular fitness classes, you will experience some very unique and fun ways for to work out such as the Buddha Run Challenge and the famous famous truck push which is all about functional fitness!

Location and Excursions

Phetchabun is an off the beaten track, rural Thai province with stunning countryside and few tourists. If you want to experience the real Thailand away from the tourist traps, this is it! Battle Conquer camp is situated just a few minutes drive from the foot of the Phetchabun hills and there’s a huge lake very close by. Most guests like to run or walk through the countryside, take a plunge in the cool lake and heading out for a refreshing swim. On a Saturday guests like to chill out and order food and drinks to be brought to them by boat out into the lake.

Here are some examples of local excursions:

The Buddha Run
Take the Battle Conquer challenge of climbing three hundred steep steps to a hillside temple set in a cave as many times as you can in one hour or simply relax once you reach the top taking in the magnificent views!

Walking or Mountain Bike Trips
Being set in the middle of farmland, there is plenty of nature and countryside to see. We have two countryside walks that are very safe and at a comfortable level for all to enjoy. There’s the option to jog if you prefer a tougher workout but the walks are lovely for active recovery. You are also free to use the resident mountain bikes if you want to explore further. 

Jungle Trail
Take a walk through the amazing jungle foliage to a hidden waterfall and take a dip in the cool waters! Join the resident yoga teacher for a guided meditation as you sit beneath the tumbling water.

Sunday Gym Excursions
Everyone looks forward to the Sunday rest day! There are many beautiful places to visit in Phetchabun and on Sunday, it’s time to explore. It could be the stunning Nong Pye Lake, one of Phetchabun’s largest set deep in the valley with beautiful panoramic views. Take a raft out and relax, swim, fish, and, if you’d like refreshments, it’s not a problem, simply wave a flag and you can order the most delicious food and drinks delivered to your raft. Sapailo Temple is another lovely location for a trip out with its pretty gardens and caves to explore or how about a trip to the local hot spring baths. We always try to fit in a cultural trip to meet our English-speaking Monk and learn the teachings of Buddhism and techniques for Buddhist meditation.

Phetchabun is around a five hour drive North from Thailand’s capital, Bangkok. After arriving at Bangkok International Airport, there are two ways to get to the gym:

Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region!

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 72 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.

  1. Awesome experience!!! Everyone was so welcoming from the moment I arrived and such great atmosphere and vibe.

    I stayed for 2-weeks on the Wellness Package to regain my strength and fitness, mentally reset and get back into a good routine …I did not want to leave! The programme is well thought-out and balanced with options so there is something for everyone.

    All the staff and instructors are amazing – such lovely, beautiful people and professional. All the coaching is clear and inclusive for all abilities. I loved starting the mornings with meditation and yoga with Chris or Grace, surrounded by the sounds of nature and soft drumbeat. Then, it was onto Muay Thai training, which started with a decent half hour warm-up and finished with a good cool-down (usually a fun inventive game) and stretch. Each instructor was attentive, patient and took pride in teaching correct technique. They were always cheerful, full of enthusiasm and great sense of humour. Every session was fun and challenging to own ability. Great tunes too.

    With the Wellness Package, you get certain number of free personalised 1-on-1 Muay Thai training sessions and Thai massages per week, but I paid the extra to have one of each most days (as well as the programmed sessions) and it was definitely worth it! For the 1-on-1 PT sessions, you can choose your instructor and what you want to work on and achieve. For mine, I kept with the same trainer, Nat, as I was only staying for short while, so he knew my strengths and weaknesses and what techniques I needed to work on. Nat is an awesome instructor (as they all are) and he taught me so much in a short space of time. I thoroughly enjoyed every training session.

    There is so much to see and do at Battle Conquer’s beautiful location and you can dip in and out of activities, with no pressure. However, everyone (including guests, who were all so lovely and diverse too) was encouraging.

    The food was amazing – so tasty and delicious, with fresh meat, eggs, veg and fruit. I thoroughly enjoyed every meal. There is also plant based protein drink on offer.

    I stayed in one of the White Saloon Rooms which was very comfortable with private wet rooms and cleaned everyday by the lovely cleaning staff. There is an efficient laundry service too.

    I highly recommend Battle Conquer. I will definitely be returning.

    I cannot thank everyone at Battle Conquer enough for a truly amazing experience – THANK YOU! ?
