Grandmaster Rick Hall, owner and chief instructor at Tiger-Rock Martial Arts
in Hixson, has provided traditional martial arts training to thousands of students in the Chattanooga area for over 25 years. He has 37 years of experience as an instructor and an 8th-degree black belt in taekwondo. He brings taekowndo's ancient traditions of courtesy, honor, and respect to each of his classes, blending them with modern sports science to ensure that students are moving healthily as they hone their body and mind. Ideal for both children and adults, he says that classes "improve focus, attention span, and self confidence," three ingredients for success in any situation.
Chu's Martial Arts imbues students with confidence and self-defense skills through martial-arts lessons taught by black-belt instructors. Tae kwon do classes teach techniques officially recognized by the World Taekwondo Federation, passing a 2,000-year-old torch onto a new generation of martial artists. Judo lessons teach throwing techniques, balance, and speed, and hapkido sessions cover pressure points, evasion, and up-close combat situations.
At Hixson Riding Academy, a staff of equestrian experts lead horseback riding programs throughout the year. The riding school invites students of every background and ability level into its embrace, furnishing each with a quality equestrian education regardless of their age or goals. The academy's directors also host parties and field trips, and can even escort their horses to shows and equestrian events of all kinds.
Initially established as a social outlet for aspiring exercise participants, Scenic City Boot Camp has since successfully coached hundreds of un-trained students of all ages prepare for major fitness events. During one-hour classes, which are held indoors and outdoors, weather permitting, a seasoned instructor guides students through an ever-changing routine of moves inspired by methods such as interval training, proper breathing, running, and recovery techniques. To keep campers accountable and motivated, some classes offer nutritional food plans, track their progress with before-and-after measurements, and occasionally test their reactions to sneaker-shaped inkblots.
The weight-loss experts at Express Weightloss dedicate themselves to supplementing body-slimming efforts with personal coaching and noninvasive treatments. Staff members operate under the no-frills philosophy that dieters and exercisers can maintain their weight with a healthy lifestyle and sensible eating. But they also recognize that sticking to a healthy lifestyle can be harder than landing a helicopter on a doghouse roof, so the team works one-on-one with clients to educate them on such weight-loss methods as HCG diets, laser-assisted liposuction procedures, and body sculpting with Venus Freeze radio-frequency treatments. To supplement new shapes, they also smooth wrinkles and plump up skin with Botox and Juv?derm injections.
