Under the guidance of chief instructor and seasoned mixed-martial-artist Stephen Whittier, students at Nexus practice engaging routines to improve both physical condition and self-defense. The women's fitness boot camp carves fit bodies during 60-minute sessions jam-packed with circuit training, trick roping, and noncontact kickboxing against incorporeal assailants. Students complete one workout per week on their own and attend two weekly sessions, scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, or Saturday morning. Instructors keep classes interesting by varying workouts, and a blend of muscular toning and cardio conditioning help keep legs from outpacing lungs or weary esophagi. After the first six weeks, students can discover noticeable changes in body composition, gaining motivation and losing weight and the tendency to flinch at incoming medicine balls.
Muay thai-kickboxing classes imbue students with striking skills helpful in defeating would-be attackers and deflecting unwanted weight and stress. Students meet twice a week during evening classes or one Saturday-morning review session to learn the science and mechanics behind the martial art's potpourri of punches, kicks, elbows, and knee strikes. Wrapped in a positive atmosphere, students train at their own pace while developing cardio and power in addition to the mental toughness needed to outmaneuver swindling lemonade-stand operators.
