The Punch it Gym Croatia is located in the center of Pula. Due to its ancient history and culture, its incredible landscape and its excellent cuisine, one of the most valued holiday destinations. It is a very popular city on the peninsula, Pula with about 60 thousand inhabitants has a great infrastructure and a wonderful beach on the Mediterranean Sea by the Adriatic. The sea temperature, which reaches up to 28 ° C in August, is also special.
But the gym is not only characterized by its beautiful location. The focus is on competence and infrastructure. The gym was founded by Denis Vojnikovic in 2018 under the name Athletic gym. He started his career in martial arts with taekwondo, kickbxing and boxing in 1993. From 2003 he was also a member of the Croatian national team in Taekwondo and kickboxing. Also,12 years he was kickboxing trainer in Trojan free fighters,one of the best mma club in Croatia.Through his numerous trips to Thailand he discovered a new passion “Muaythai”. Since then, muaythai has been given a high priority in his training plan. In 2020 Denis and his successful fighter Teo Mikelic decided to make the Athletic Gym and Muaythai in Croatia more famous and professional. Teo Mikelic had previously trained in the famous Punch it Gym in Koh Samui – Thailand and was enthusiastic about the high level of professionalism. The Punch It brand has also been offering franchaising partnerships since 2020. Markus Muster, the owner of Punch it, was enthusiastic about the idea and together we decided to convert the old location in Pula and open it into the first Punch it Gym in Europe. The goal of the partnership is clear. We want to make the sport of Muaythai more famous in Croatia and to offer the customers from the old athletic gym an even better and more professional training place. The Punch it Gym will officially open in January 2021 and will expand the range in the future as well as with training holidays and the Punch it products shop. The close partnership in Thailand will also be a highlight for fighters who want to fight in Thailand. These are prepared at a high level in Croatia and then get the finishing touches in Thailand in the Punch it Gym Koh Samui for the way to the Muaythai stadium. There the fighters from Croatia can represent the national sport of Thailand “Muaythai” for Croatia.
