With its Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai, and Cardio Kickboxing classes, So-Cal Martial Arts Center gives its clients a choice of routes to one common destination: fitness. Most classes combine self-defense movements with a fast-paced, high-energy tempo, pushing sweat glands into overdrive as groups punch and kick their way to improved health. CrossFit classes, meanwhile, put participants to the test as they complete Workouts of the Day designed to build broad, functional fitness?exactly what superheroes have that's commonly referred to as their "super power."
At Red Carpet Boot Camps’ fitness center, trainers motivate others toward fitness through classes such as spin, yoga, and Reformer Pilates. When not in the gym, trainers lead their charges outside for 60-minute boot-camp sessions that combine everything from their classes, as well as resistance, cardio, and calisthenics. Understanding that pushing muscles to their limits is only part of the equation, Red Carpet also offers nutrition coaching.
Among the sprawling grass fields of Rohr Park people jump rope, wrap trees with resistance bands and pull, do pushups, hop over prone partners, and play toss back with a heavy ball. This scenario unfolds during each of Marlon Matanza Licup's one-hour boot camps, which the certified trainer holds mornings and evenings Monday–Friday. His goal is to help people not only lose weight, but also prevent medical problems so they can be healthy and well for the ones who care about them. With his extensive knowledge in fitness, he can customize programs that help clients build endurance and improve strength and agility without resorting to stealing and wearing Samson's hairpiece. For those who require personal attention to reach their goals, Marlon also offers private one-on-one training.
