24-hour access. Group fitness classes. Personal trainers. Some of Ten X Club's amenities and services might seem familiar, but it's the combination of these benefits that makes the gym special. Plus, it's a workout space dedicated solely to women and their fitness needs. Members can stop by during regular business hours to meet with a personal trainer, or attend evening and morning yoga, Zumba, and strength training classes. However, they can also drop in any time and swipe their 24-hour access key card?one of the many perks of membership?to gain access to the equipment at any time.

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?
In additional to our regular one hour classes for kids and adults, we periodically hold seminars with multiple classes, featuring visiting instructors for adult seminars and special games and origami for the kids' seminars. Our kids are often thrilled when one of our regular one hour classes ends with an Aikido inspired versions of tag, dodge ball, and more.
I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
The only pressure you should put on yourself to learn and progress is to attend practice regularly, pay attention, and have fun. The instructors and teaching methods will take care of the rest. Aikido is a true martial art where you can continue to learn, grow, and progress for as long as you practice. Beginners practice safely along with experienced students and can join at any time. There are no competitions in Aikido, as students learn to practice cooperatively in a common pursuit of self-development.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are very fortunate to receive instruction from one of the most senior ranking Aikido instructors in the United States, David Halprin, 7th degree black belt. David Halprin's primary teacher, Mitsunari Kanai, was part of the last group of live-in students under the founder of Aikido, Ueshiba Morihei (or "O-Sensei" to Aikido practitioners, meaning "Great Teacher"). Since Aikido is best learned through dedicated practice and guided instruction, we consider our direct lineage to the founder of Aikido to be a strong asset in maintaining high standards and authentic techniques, true to the founders teachings.
