From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? _Capoeira is a 500-year old Afro-Brazilian Martial Art that combines elements of self-defense, dance and acrobatic movements to the rhythm of traditional live music. Classes are in a group format and we work with all levels. You will experience cardio and strength training in an encouraging communal environment. Capoeira improves your strength, agility and flexibility. _
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged? _All classes are group classes and each group member pushes each other to attain the next skill or perfect the current skill in a supportive environment. _
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I lived in Brazil in 1994-1995 and was enamored with the beauty and athleticism of Capoeira. Upon returning to the U.S. I knew that this was a sport I wanted to participate in. I never get bored, there is always more to learn and it's a great workout as well!
What do you love most about your job? _It sounds cheesy but the people I meet and train with through Capoeira have become my family. This is an amazing place to be open and get to know people, and not just a place to go get your sweat on. _
