When Elevation Fitness was designed, it was based on intensive research into what other fitness centers were doing right and what they were doing wrong. The result was an 18,000-square-foot facility that's doing plenty of things right.
This place is both a training ground for clients looking to get into shape and for athletes trying to bump their performance up to the next level. Gym-goers can tackle obstacle courses on a turf field, work out on the vast array of functional machines, or take boot-camp, yoga, and circuit-training classes. They can seek out certified personal trainers to help them burn fat and build muscle efficiently. And, at the sports performance academy, they can sign up for sport-specific training classes to gain strength and power.
Believing that the atmosphere is what brings people back time and again, Elevation Fitness strives to provide a convenient space where people feel welcome and supported while working out. Parents can take advantage of the onsite child care. If you're injured or need an adjustment, you can head over to the facility's chiropractor. And everyone can enjoy some post-workout refreshments at the juice and snack bar.
Along with his team of certified instructors, fifth-degree kick-boxing black belt Cory Wachal harnesses his more than 20 years of teaching experience into a stranglehold to imbue students at Wachals' Martial Arts Academy with the discipline to master kick-boxing, mixed martial arts, and Machado brazilian jiu-jitsu. In kick-boxing classes, students learn techniques that blend moves from karate, muay thai kick-boxing, and american kick-boxing. In mixed-martial-arts sessions, teachers run through offensive and defensive manoeuvres that guard against tap outs or deadly tap-dance attacks. In addition to training adults, Wachals' Martial Arts Academy teaches self-defense to children while emphasizing the supporting pillars of respect, hard work, and focus.
Early in the morning, on February 2, 2012, WKX Gym burned to the ground. It was a big setback, but one that the staff fought back against like a phoenix in boxing gloves. Through the hard work of its owners and trainers, WKX reopened at a different location just a little more than a month later.
Similarly, WKX's instructors motivate their students to push through challenges as they build skills in MMA, boxing, and muay thai kickboxing classes. To help students get the most out of their training, the gym even hosts special seminars lead by accomplished fighters.
