Coach Miranda Cayabyab has put aside her professional Muay Thai career to focus on raising her children and developing her talents as a fitness coach. But let me start at the beginning to give you a better understanding of why she is so awesome.
In 2004 Miranda found herself in an unhealthy place. Out of shape and overweight, she had lost her confidence. She decided to make a change and found herself in Coach Rudi Ott’s Cardio Kickboxing Class! Though it was difficult, she loved it!
Miranda dedicated herself to getting back in shape and that's where it all began!
A year and 40lbs later Miranda decided to take on new challenge, Muay Thai. She overcame her fears and began to love challenge of stepping into the ring. Her nicknamed formed as “Killa”, as she quickly established herself as a top level competitor with a fierce heart within the fight community. Miranda won 3 National Titles as an amateur!
During her amateur career, she took some time off to give birth to her second child, Aurora Hope. For most, having a full-time job, 2 children, and training full time as a competitive fighter would be too much. Miranda not only was able to be successful with all those responsibilities, but during this time she also decided to get certified as a CrossFit Trainer. Always looking for new challenges, she then decided that she wanted to take her Muay Thai career further and turn professional.
In November, 2013 Miranda made her Professional Muay Thai debut for Lion Fight Promotions. What most don't know is that she had completely blown out her ACL & PCL just 3 weeks before. Miranda refused to pull out of the Fight. Her determination and skills were on full display that night. Despite her injuries she won a unanimous decision victory. Her family, friends,. and team were very proud.
She has now entered the next stage of her Fitness and Martial Arts journey of coaching. Miranda has quickly built a following of loyal members who LOVE her classes!
