Martial Arts Fitness opened in 2010 and offers martial arts and fitness for the entire family. The accessibility and effectiveness of these programs are what sets MA Fitness apart. Manager Matt DiPietro explains that the focus is on empowering people.
“Anyone can take part in the classes regardless of skill or fitness level. We have worked with everyone from the the out of shape mom to the college athlete and everyone gets a great workout within the same class. You have the opportunity to pick it up or slow it down and see the results from coming to classes regardless of where you are starting from.”
For anyone wondering if they will get enough cardio in the classes, the short answer is, yes. “The kickboxing classes are ‘conditioning based’, says DiPietro, “which means their focus is to improve cardio endurance and achieve maximum calorie burn in the 45 minute class. By using interval training in combination with hitting a heavy bag you begin targeting fat stores and melting the extra weight you may be carrying.
