Very nice environment for the kids! Very good instructors! Instructor Nelson is very diligent with the kids!
I have been taking classes here for over a year. These workouts give you the next steps if you were ever taken to the ground. Working with the other guys is a great comradery here we are constantly pushing each other to excel and to get a lot better. It is a great amount of fun. I certainly feel bad when I can't come in because I feel so good so much better the next day physically. One of the things I really like is that the training is very strenuous. Whether you are doing rounds of 3-5 minutes or doing drills, you get a very good workout and the way you feel about yourself is great. You feel it in your arms, stomach and legs. It has really made a big difference in the rest of my martial arts training here.
I just love it here. I am a nurse and am always working or on call. There are so many classes offered here that anyone can fit it into their schedule no matter what. When I started 10 weeks ago I was wearing a size 10 pants and an extra large shirt. I went shopping on Saturday and bought size 5 junior pants and size 8 petite shirts. I lost 6 inches from my hips, thighs and waist. I didn't like Weight Watchers weighing in front of others and announcing your weight. I don't want to feel guilty and you just set yourself up for failure and frustration. Here your weight wasn't announced and the instructors and coaches really focused on good eating habits, good exercise habits, encouragement. There was no guilt trip on how you did the past week, there was more positive encouragement on how you could do next time. This program is wonderful, I have more abdominal strength. I am 54 If I can do it anyone can do it. At work people come up to me and tell me You look 10 years younger, what have you done? I tell them about Parks Martial Arts and say to them And I feel 10 years younger too.
From the very first day I noticed the friendly atmosphere and constant encouragement to achieve my goals with fitness and nutrition. I really enjoy the high energy, intense workouts. I really get a nice high from these classes. I tried a lot of other programs boot camps, weight lifting etc. and I truly like this one the best. I feel guilty when I can't get here, it is a great stress release hitting these bags and getting my body in great shape.
My whole family attends classes. Before we started, my son was very shy, he had a hard time expressing himself, he would sit in the back. Even when people would say hi to him he he would mumble hello and wouldn't say much. He now gets really excited in class and his voice is much louder. It brings tears to my eyes to see his progress. He has made a lot of friends at Parks Martial Arts Martial Arts and they are all doing the same things, like being respectful and mannerly. Being at Parks Martial Arts has also motivated him in the morning to get ready for school on his own. He wants to help out and add things to his self disciple sheet for karate where before it used to be a struggle and repeating over and over to do things like his chores. I am really glad I enrolled him here and wish we could have started sooner.
I started kickboxing classes here at Parks Martial Arts and I love the classes and the results. I go home and my husband says my eyes are just twinkling. My daughter and me started coming to class together, something we can do together. At the doctors office when it says do you have a regular exercise program, now I can say Yes. I haven't worked out in over 20 years, I love this because it is so different from step aerobics and this is something where you come in here to work out not to try and look pretty. Nobody cares if you are heavy or if you are skinny, everyone is very friendly and you are just here to work out, it's all about you, so you feel good about yourself. In two weeks I have lost 1.5 inches off my abs, 1.5 inches off my hips, .5 inches off my legs and 1 inch off my waist. I'm ready for more. Also when it comes down to it what I'm learning makes me more confident and safer outside.
My daughter, son and myself are enrolled at Parks Martial Arts. We love doing it together. At home, I'm it's more respectful and I love that I get yes mom when I ask them to finish up their homework. They are taking the discipline they are learning at Parks and using ti at home. I never though I would want to learn tae kwon do and here I am with my children doing it.
