Q&A with Rachell, Fitness Instructor

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

We get to know each student personally; they are not just dollar signs. Each client becomes part of the IMC community, where they are surrounded by an outstanding support group of staff members and other students. Also, our instructors live healthy lifestyles; they practice what they preach.

What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

Rewarding, challenging, and fun?but most of all, inspirational.

The term martial arts generally refers to Eastern-born fighting techniques, but not at Three Sixty Training. In addition to jujitsu and MMA, the martial-arts studio offers kajukenbo, a martial art that originated in America. The practice weaves together five styles of combat into a single mode of self-defense learned largely through bag work, sparring, and grappling. At Three Sixty Training, instructors teach their unique brand of kajukenbo, incorporating a strong emphasis on boxing and jujitsu.

As CEO and chief instructor of Condition and Competition Kickboxing, Ed Carpio draws from a victory-studded background of competitive fighting. Though he came to the art of Chinese kickboxing (also called sanshou) at 21, later than many greats, he rose through successive bouts to become a national lightweight champion. Ed then turned to training others with his expertise, remaining devoted to his sanshou students throughout his sporadic returns to the ring, a study in judo, and a government summons to deflect an impending asteroid.

CCK preaches acceptance and positivity through programs for all ages, from toddlers to adults. Its gym has been highlighted on one of KRON 4's "Best of The Bay" segments for casting a familial air over martial-arts learning. Bordered by camouflage-painted walls, guests can launch strikes at bags, pads, and partners during kickboxing courses, or focus on classical conditioning with weights and fitness machinery.
