A letter from Gym Bangarang Owner – Chris Smith.
Hi my name is Chris. I am a former Marine and was part of “operation Iraqi Freedom”
On my return home, I was diagnosed with chronic depression and PTSD symptons. I was an alcoholic and had no motivation or goals. I felt like I was on my own and was a discarded statistic.
A lot of my friends couldn’t take the pressure cooker anymore and decided to end their lives through any way necessary to block out the trauma
I slowly found a way to fix my internal issues through natural means. exercise, education, herbal supplementation, diet and meditation. Pills were just stacking into more pills when I would visit the doctors that thought they knew… It doesn”t work for everyone the same way.
We are honored to have you as our guests if you decide to spend some holiday time with us and assure you that this is a controlled environment where we promote peace happiness and the pursuit of freedom for our spirit mind and bodies. I consider myself one of the lucky ones.
I created Gym Bangarang to provide a safe haven for for people from all walks of life to relax, recharge and heal. Our programs include: Muay Thai (Thai Boxing), Fitness & Weightloss Holidays and General Fitness for those in the Chiang Mai area. We have a career coach on-site who uses the joy of ‘play’ to release past issues.
Seeking help is a sign of strength.
