Physical Fitness

A reasonable level of fitness is required for this experience, and you should be in good health. You can expect to train for a minimum of two hours up to a maximum of six hours per day, depending on your skill and fitness levels. Physical preparations such as running, sprinting, plyometric training, and any other cardio-respiratory endurance training is highly recommended. Always consult with your health care practitioner before starting any new workout regime.

Vaccinations

Vaccinations are not required for entry into Thailand or re-entry into the USA but you should consult with your doctor or health care provider to obtain the most up-to-date information. It is your responsibility to obtain any vaccinations or preventive medications required for the countries you are visiting or any which may be required by your home country upon your return.

Your need for vaccinations is determined by many factors, such as your health and immunization history, areas of the country you will be visiting, and planned activities. Some vaccines require more than one dose so visit your health care provider at least four to six weeks before you travel.
