The instructors at Perfect Balance Fitness & Martial Arts Training strive to create a happy marriage between Eastern and Western philosophies. Master Al Agon draws from the discipline and fitness ideals of ancient martial arts techniques and modernizes them with instruction tailored to help kids build discipline and focus in school and professionals cope with stresses at work. To earn a black belt, students must exhibit devotion not only at the gym but also in other important aspects of life, such as relationships and school work, striving toward a lifetime of fitness and overall contentment. In addition to the martial arts program, the venue also hosts intense kickboxing classes in which students pummel punching bags until they agree to share the secrets of withstanding a pummeling. One-on-one personal training sessions also adhere to Agon's training philosophy and are tailored to help clients meet their individual wellness goals.

During private lessons, instructors tailor their teachings to each student's skill level, along with their fitness and relaxation goals, taking time to ensure proper postural alignment for maximum yogic benefit. Enlisting an arsenal of advanced stretching techniques, yoga props, and suspension apparatuses, private lessons imbue attendees with an understanding of form and control that can prepare students for their everyday yoga practice or bimonthly yoga duels.
