The Playground Gym’s 5,000-square-foot facility boasts ample space for CrossFit, a high-energy conditioning style used by military and law-enforcement personnel to achieve peak personal fitness. Although known for its intense strength-training tasks, CrossFit’s regimen is easily scalable for varying skill levels, challenging everyone from seasoned athletes and stay-at-home moms to senior citizens and seasoned athletes disguised as stay-at-home moms. The On-Ramp program enlightens all newbies to the sport and kicks-off with a fitness assessment to set a baseline when charting one’s progress. On-Ramp sessions also allow newcomers to perfect their technique while performing such CrossFit staples as Olympic and barbell lifts, kettle-bell training, basic gymnastics, and running. After a duo of sessions, exercisers graduate to regular-level CrossFit classes, which combine learned moves in an ever-changing combination to prevent muscle adaptation, thus blasting through traditional workout plateaus like a crash dummy driving a bumper car full of dynamite. The gym has classes each weekday, with both early morning and early evening sessions to accommodate an array of schedules.
You never know when someone might try to sneak up on you, but you can learn how to protect yourself. Just ask the instructors at Kickboxing Broward, who have found a way to combine an intense cardio workout with practical self-defense training. The studio's kickboxing classes turn exercise into a form of multitasking; students tone their muscles while learning how to take down opponents or suspicious-looking piles of wood.
The children's after-school program at Kumite Martial Arts focuses on the most important body part when it comes to self-defense: the brain. Students are either dropped off at the gym or picked up from school by one of its vehicles. They then settle into supervised study time, during which they read and complete their homework. Lastly, instructors lead them through martial-arts training that builds confidence, mental focus, and leadership skills.
The adults don't have to do homework, but they do learn a variety of techniques from the gym's head trainer and competitive kickboxer, Scott Mukaddam. He and his team cover jiu-jitsu, wrestling, and kickboxing drills, thereby combining martial arts schooling with fitness workouts.
