Spawned by gung mao kung fu, a form of martial arts developed in 19th-century Okinawa, Gangi kung fu arose in 1985 thanks to Master Soshihan Joe Gangi. He held a black belt in gung mao kung fu, goju karate, jujitsu, and many other forms of martial arts. So he combined ancient and modern components of MMA to create something new: Gangi kung fu. The method married yoga-inspired conditioning moves and meditation with sparring. At Gangi Martial Arts & Fitness, Master Gangi and his assistant teachers continue to promote the unique practice through their martial-arts classes.
Exercisers seek out stronger muscles and leaner forms in National Fitness & Tan's state-of-the-art health-club facility with encouragement from a staff of weigh- loss and workout professionals. Rows of advanced fitness equipment fill the 8,000-square-foot health club instead of bulky, human-sized hamster balls or stationary penny-farthings. Pump up with strength-training machines, cable machines, and free weights, or get your heart racing on a treadmill, treadclimber, or elliptical machine, all of which are equipped with televisions to keep brains entertained while bodies get fit. During four sessions with a personal trainer, novices develop a balanced fitness program through conditioning routines and overcome fitness plateaus. They can continue calorie mastery at home after a one-on-one appointment with author and weight-loss expert Trista Rodéo. Trista will analyze clients' eating habits, create meal plans based on their nutritional needs, and explain which foods are best for the body and which are waxen centerpieces. After the consultation, four weekly weight-loss coaching sessions ensure clients stay on the right track.
No body is exactly alike. So when personal trainer Steve Mehaffey—who bears a BA in exercise science alongside numerous fitness certifications—meets with clients, he doesn’t prescribe the same programs for every person. Instead, he tailors his sessions to include whether clients want to tone up, lose inches, or build muscle faster than the Hulk in line at the DMV. Additionally, he can work around hindrances such as age and medical conditions to help clients get their health where the want it to be.
The Exercise Coach Game Plan is the world's most powerful and practical workout. It's the perfect fit for people frustrated by conventional fitness wisdom. With two, 20-minute workouts per week our clients enjoy greater strength, enhanced metabolism, stronger bones, and more energy and confidence.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains dozens of studios spread across 21 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. At any one of the centers, a workout can begin with heart-healthy cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Over the course of many workouts, participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags. They work toward flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can also improve their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
