Start running...star skipping (3 minutes - 1minute rest - to emulate rounds). SAtart working out with a heavy bag if you have one... shadow box (3 minute rounds)...

Plyometrics
1) Jumping over a pylon - front back side to side
2) Push-ups (explosive) - launch your body off the ground
3) Sit-ups - Crunches
4) Squat-Jumps (Squat down expode in the air)

Besides the thai treaining itself, anything that promotes explosive power and endurance.

Do you want basic exercises, or basic Muay Thai moves?

Ive just started Muay Thai and had the same idea as you, do some pre training. I would suggest you build strength in your chest with heaps of pushups, and abs with situps, because if its anything like my class you do heaps of both. If your fitness is down do some running, skipping or bike riding 20 mins a day every day, you'll be able to keep up the pace in class. Stretch always, to prevent injury and improve circulation. I wouldnt recommend learning any punches or kicks before you go, I found things that I had learned in Karate hard to break once they were formed into habit. You will be taught correct technique once you're there. Also dont get discouraged if you feel a bit clumsy and unco-ordinated I am assured this is common and will pass with time.
Go for it, good luck, and always before anything - stretch, if you are a "learn the hard way" person, you will be out of action recovering from pulled muscles while you learn this lesson.

Make sure you shake your muscles thoroughly after doing any punching, otherwise after your first lesson you'll have sore arms for a week afterwards...at least it feels like a week.

Buiding up stamina with things like skipping and running are important, but not as important as being able to do at least a couple of push-ups and a few sit-ups...

In my first kickboxing class I had to do 300 sit-ups...which was very hard back then.

Condition your shins,

i use to hit my shins either bamboo or with a metal rod. make sure its round. What you wanna do is tap not hitting it hard. And that after hitting it you wanna take what ever you hit it with and roll your shins. Tap it litely and gradually go harder.

good luck.........
