$25 for a 12-Class Fitness Package at Ultimate Gym ($180 Value)
Schedule hosts a variety of 60- to 90-minute classes such as aerial-silk and tribal belly-dancing, ranging from kettlebells and sil lum kung fu to kids' systema. Systema is a Russian self-defense discipline, the drills of which impart ways to take advantage of the structural weaknesses built into an assailant's body. CrossFit NoDa, meanwhile, involves strength and conditioning exercises, and Street Survival classes teach how to survive on the streets with nothing but six bodyguards instead of the usual eight.
Helmed by Doug Brafford, who has more than 30 years of martial arts training, Ultimate Gym teaches its members with a deep authority and pool of expertise. They guide clients through efforts to build muscle, improve self-defense skills, and increase their self-confidence with a wide variety of fitness classes. A skilled team of trainers and teachers draws from training ranging from invitation-only jiu-jitsu circles to hundreds of hours of aerial-silk instruction. They leverage that surfeit of experience to help students hone their minds and bodies through functional Qi Gong, or the cardio and strength-training of a boxing regimen.
Between the gritty brick walls of the lofty gym space, the staff teaches students the diverse selection of drills, kicks, and blocks movements. These practices range from the hyper-accurate kicks and knee-strikes of Muay Thai to Russian Systema's weapon disarming, spatial awareness, and physically exhausting literary masterpieces.
