I've been to schools all over the country and this school is not only the best in Harrisonburg but one of the top schools in the country!

Best decision ever!!
I signed my twin seven year old boys up for their first karate class in late September. Almost immediately, both their teachers and I noticed dramatic improvements in their behavior. Prior to karate, they couldn't focus on tasks and often got in trouble for impulsively acting out. There was a dramatic improvement right away, and I still continue to see improvements with focus, week after week (now just over 4 months in). The focus and respect that they have learned has really allowed our family to spend more time enjoying each other and less time focusing on behavior correction. I can't thank the Brian Mayes team enough!!

For the last month, I've been taking the adult kickboxing class here. It's really fun, motivating, and I can already see a change in how my clothes fit me. I leave each class feeling (sweaty and) great. I was hesitant about signing up for a 3x/week class, but I find myself wanting to go each time. I can't say I feel the same way about my home gym equipment. These instructors keep me moving and keep me wanting more. I love it.

The kickboxing classes are always fun and energetic; great for ALL skill levels!
Whether you haven't been to the gym in years or you have a bunch of Spartan races under your belt, you will leave feeling 100 times better than before you came in.
Instructors are amazing and motivational. When you walk through the doors, you're already a part of the family.

I started BMK kickboxing almost a year ago and a daily workout here has become integral to starting my busy days off right!

I have absolutely loved the kickboxing classes! I am totally new to kickboxing and have found the workouts to be engaging, challenging, and fun! The instructors are friendly and love helping you understand technique. A huge bonus is that just after 12 weeks I've noticed lots of improvement in my fitness level, as well as more muscle tone and a trimmer waistline. Hello abs, here we come :) Thanks Kerri, Edith, Megan and Melanie for the awesome workouts!

HOW TO BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM NATURALLY

While feeling sick happens to everyone, putting your fitness training on pause can be a real life-disruptor. It’s common to lose motivation or feel like your fitness level is plummeting, making it hard to bounce back. Athletes are at the highest risk due to training in mixed weather conditions, frequent travel, & putting physical & mental stress on the body. Supporting your life with a healthy diet should be part of your daily routine, & no longer will you have to worry about long-term setbacks.

LOWER INFLAMMATION 

Inflammation can help us grow stronger from work-outs, but chronic inflammation negatively affects health. It can greatly reduce the strength of your immune system, so it’s important to eat foods that have anti-inflammatory effects on the body. Try eating minimally or unprocessed whole foods & fruits, and eat less of poor quality meat, dairy, or refined sugars.  

SUPERFOOD

Superfood is a buzzword most grocery stores take for granted, but foods labeled ‘super’ tend to be those loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds that fight off free radicals or also known as ‘toxins’, and they help keep bodies performing optimally. You should aim for eating berries, beets, goji, seeds, dark greens like asparagus, dark chocolate, herbs & other plant foods daily.

GET YOUR VITAMINS & MINERALS 

Obtaining vitamins like Vitamin C through diet is fairly easy, as the compound is found in citrus fruits, bell peppers, papaya & broccoli. Vitamin D is another crucial vitamin vital to immunity. Although much harder to obtain through diet, you can always supplement with it. Vitamin D can be found in egg yolk, fatty fish, dairy, & fortified foods. Minerals like copper & zinc also are crucial vitamins for immunity that are found in shellfish.

SUPPLEMENTS

Relying on a high-quality diverse diet is the best way to prep your body for good health, but many people have a difficult time getting the nutrients they need through food alone. Taking a daily supplement is an easy way to make sure your body has the vitamins & minerals it needs. Supplements that are great for your immune system include echinacea, cordyceps, reishi, zinc, vitamin d, vitamin c, elderberry, astragalus root, l-lysine, & grape seed extract.
