The instructors at East Coast United pass on extensive experience accumulated during international competition and fitness training to students ages five and older. A brimming schedule rattles the gym’s cerulean mats, hanging punching bags, and Pilates balls with inspiring shouts. Gaining confidence all the while, pupils in self-defense and fitness courses learn to ward off attackers without having to sit through Superman’s vacation photos. Joe Oppedisano, who has received gold medals from the North American Grappling Association, demonstrates the blocks and throws of jiu-jitsu, which make for adrenaline-steeped sessions.
Muay Thai sessions liberate limbs to make quick moves that incapacitate potential opponents and kick the cardiac system into overdrive, and jiu-jitsu lessons for youngsters introduce self discipline and help burn off excess energy otherwise spent throwing sand or crushing it into illegal diamonds. The intimately sized courses, which allow for bountiful one-on-one attention, fuel inner fires to help torch calories, and students may opt to continue on to participate in competitions and other events.
Fit Club Fairfield
Inside the massive, well-outfitted Sportsplex, Fit Club Fairfield's team of personal trainers and fighting coaches teaches martial arts as both a method of self-defense and vigorous exercise. They train aspiring fighters in boxing, jujitsu, and muay thai, arming them with a suite of takedowns, punches, and kicks used in professional bouts. In sessions geared toward fitness, the team pits students against punching bags and focus pads as they battle off calories in pursuit of slimmer physiques, making participants more confident to don swimsuits or show their pillows who’s the boss.
