If you’re training clients every week, you’ll need a pad that is comfortable to wear especially for your elbow, wrist and forearm. Light and fast pads are ideal for training clients if you’re a personal trainer / fitness coach.

Avoid Injury

We don’t recommend buying a cheap pad with a straight block of foam, it will just cause injuries and jarring. Also, never use a focus pad for kickboxing or knees.

Always buy a Thai pad that comes with a control bar at the back as well as quality Hook and Loop straps.
