It’s a new year, let’s make 2020 different than last year! Nothing will change unless you change…
Check out our new adult karate trial for people that need to hit all 3 areas in their lives!
Proper eating habits. This is a big one, as your weight it primarily controlled by what we eat. 80-90% of our weight loss goals are achieved through healthy eating. And most of us don’t eat enough…
Fitness. If you can lose all the fat just by eating well, why work out? Well exercising is still an important part of being healthy. Also, muscle burns calories 24hrs a day 7 days a week. So why not put that to work while also being more flexible, better able to move and be happier since the endorphins help with that as well? Science based, trackable, fun and functional workouts. Karate has a purpose that will support your new lifestyle. Our classes and the exercises in them have been developed over decades to support and create black belt level candidates. With the new addition of heart rate based effort monitoring you/we can also empirically follow the effort of your workouts both inside and outside the dojo to help achieve quicker results!
Community. You are the sum of those people you chose to be around. Why not chose to surround yourself with people who have the same goals as you? Our growing tribe of motivated lifestyle conscious members will cheer you on to success, encourage you when you need it, and challenge you to win at life. Statistically, people who are socially connected to others in this kind of environment, are 75% more likely to stick with and put more effort into their health goals!
Please bring your favourite potluck item to share and enjoy some great catching up and socializing. There will be some awards being handed out at the belt presentation so if you would like to watch, please plan to arrive before 1pm.
During our Cheer, the children will have a special Christmas movie playing while the adults have fun. All should be wrapped up between 3 – 5pm depending.
