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.

Julio Anta first told his father that he wanted to be a professional martial artist and bodybuilder at age 7. He dedicated the next several decades of his life to mastering his craft, immersing himself in disciplines including judo, kung fu, and tae kwon do. However, solitary training just wasn’t cutting it. Julio was compelled to share his understanding of self-defense and physical conditioning, and soon, a studio was born.
As the owner of Anta's Fitness and Self Defense, Julio empowers his students with a combination of practical self-defense classes and inspiring fitness-based workouts. The studio embraces a number of diverse martial arts, and uses a modern understanding of fitness and physiology to teach the timeless techniques and philosophies that define each style.
The schedule features these self-defense sessions along with fitness-oriented classes that tone muscles and improve cardiovascular health with Pilates techniques, kettlebell workouts, and games of Red Rover in the studio's wind tunnel. Additionally, the instructors offer programs for children and teenagers that nurture budding self-control and confidence in a supportive environment.
