Full Focus Training provides protein production through a limberness-unlocking, one-hour group-fitness class, offered six days a week. Instructed by owner, certified trainer, and Incredible Hulk stunt-double Ronnie Heath, each session is designed to target and tone trainees' muscles while increasing stamina and endurance by using a rotating roster of workout flavors and muscle confusion. One session might be centered on cardio, elevating heart rates and increasing vigor; then in the next, core strengthening, plyometrics, or dumbbell training could make a cameo. The diversity of the group-fitness classes keeps muscles stimulated for growth and fends off the boredom of monotony, much like making a guest appearance on a Nickelodeon show.
Grandmaster Dennis Tosten founded the first Amerikick in 1967 and has since taught several champion fighters, police officers, and everyday students karate and self-defense. Today, the lauded chain teaches fitness classes inspired by martial arts, including cardio kickboxing in six states. Each location upholds a curriculum that blends Chinese and Japanese martial-arts styles?including kenpo and tae kwon do?with modern self-defense strategies, further updating traditional practices by eschewing uniforms and belts for casual workout gear. Having attained certification in teaching kickboxing from the National Association of Professional Martial Artists, Amerikick?s seasoned instructors also each possess black belts in karate, a rank as difficult to attain as the snake charmer?s belt of live cobras.
