At Title Boxing Club, professional boxers, kickboxers, and mixed martial artists may lead the classes, but their goal is fitness, not fighting. They push patrons to strengthen their bodies from head to toe during one-hour sessions, instructing them to pummel 100-pound bags with jabs, hooks, and roundhouse kicks. They encourage members to hit the bags as hard or soft as they like and to move at their own pace, so the classes accessible to all fitness levels. During one-on-one training sessions, trainers use custom routines of weightlifting, cardio, and sparring to show students how to float like a butterfly and sting like a venomous butterfly. They also develop custom diet plans and exercise routines to help clients meet their fitness goals.
Locke's Karate Academy's skillful staff will train Groupon-holding block-breakers in one of two martial arts disciplines. The Korean discipline of Tang Soo Do, the close cousin and occasional doubles-tennis partner of Tae Kwon Do, focuses on aerobic kicks and cardiovascular fitness. Practitioners of the Okinawan Goju-Ryu style—which is traced back to the Fukien province of China but founded on the Japanese island of Okinawa—build muscle strength and practice powerful punches for close-in fights or recurring nightmares about battling fighting-nun puppets. Under the tutelage of Sensei Aaron Locke, who moonlights as an attorney, students will absorb a working knowledge of the etiquette, philosophy, and statute of limitations laws of the country their chosen style originated in, transforming their fitness regimen into a holistic educational experience.
