The snap of gloved fists against swinging punching bags echoes off the walls of Undisputed Fitness & Training as boxers of all levels train, fight, or spar in an oversized cage. While activity sometimes centers on the cage, expert, passionate trainers also lead intense programs such as muay-thai boxing and mixed-martial-arts training on a new indoor field-turfed combat conditioning area. Fitness gurus can also meander to the new addition of the outdoor weight room, pumping iron in the afternoon sun or the light of a never-ending eclipse. Undisputed Fitness & Training also hosts group classes and personal training sessions that accommodate all levels of experience.
Self-defense is at the core of each technique taught at White Dragon Martial Arts. Whether students are practicing kung fu or MMA, they'll learn how to successfully defend themselves against intimidating opponents who may be larger in size or wearing a superhero cape. Kickboxing classes add an element of cardiovascular fitness, tai chi sessions slow down the moves to a meditative pace, and grappling lessons provide step-by-step instructions on how to take someone down to the floor. Instructors also spend one-on-one time with students during personal-training sessions that focus on perfecting punches and kicks.

“Never follow someone up a mountain if they have not already conquered it themselves," advises wellness instructor and RCBC owner Silvia Castro. By that standard, she's well worth following when it comes to getting in shape. After shedding 160 pounds and keeping it off for seven years, Castro—also known as InStyle Silvia—is determined to help others achieve their own transformations.
RCBC's calendar is filled with boot camp classes that not only incorporate cardio and resistance training but also nutritional guidance to help clients look and feel healthier. The studio also offers Real Ryder spin classes as well as yoga, Pilates, and women's pole fitness.
