If there's one thing that proves that the principles of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and judo help ensure success outside the martial arts studio, it's Harrisburg Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Judo's instructors. Though they possess years of experience and numerous championship wins, martial arts aren't their only pursuits—detective, college professor, welder, and attorney are just a few of the titles the instructors hold when they're not teaching martial arts students. In their diverse schedule of child- and adult-level classes in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and judo, they teach students the same enduring skills in fitness, honor, and mutual respect that have been so beneficial in their own lives.
Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and the Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, the Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
Personal training has been the cornerstone of Max Fitness ever since the gym opened in 1998—a fact that was reinforced when owner Bentz Tozer Jr. was voted Best Personal Trainer by readers of Harrisburg Magazine in 2012. Bentz and his staff mock up blueprints for each client—which include thoughtful touches such as meal plans and online recipes—and pave the fitness way for people who want to build muscle mass, lose weight, or develop sports-specific skills. Supplementing the training, the staff leads fitness classes such as Fit Box, which weaves martial-arts techniques into full-body workouts. For lone wolves and humans who like to work out on their own, the gym also maintains a fleet of strength-training machines, cardio equipment, and free weights.
