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!

Want to know what the 3 Key Ingredients to a Happier More Fit YOU???

There is no magic formula that is going to spontaneously give you the body you want. But there are daily alternatives that can make you smile when you stare into the mirror. Here is a look at three key components that can give you the body you want and deserve.

Diet

One of the keys to maintaining a successful diet is preparation. Everyday life is hectic as there are always unexpected twists and turns. Planning and preparing your meals ahead of time can maintain your diet when real life starts to turn your week upside down. Failing to prepare your diet in advance is pretty much a recipe for failure. Here is a look at some easy-to-prepare diets that could work for you.

 

  • Mediterranean diet – This is a popular diet that features normal fruits and vegetables, as well as fish, extra virgin olive oil, potatoes, legumes, nuts and focuses on herbs and spices. It also avoids sugars, processed foods, red meat, and refined grains and oils.

 

  • Keto diet – Who said you can’t eat any fats when trying to lose weight? The keto diet places an emphasis on healthy fats. Yes, you can eat the right kinds of fats and lose weight. This diet is based on the process of ketosis, which breaks down fat deposits.

 

  • Macro tracking – Ever heard of counting calories? Micro-tracking takes it to another level. This diet consists of counting more than calories. It factors in how many grams of protein, carbs, and fat consumed daily. Those daily limits can turn into daily goals.

 

Workouts

Not all workouts are created the same. A 35-year old mother of three is not likely to adhere to the same workout as a 21-year old man looking to gain power and size. But there are some popular workouts adults can utilize to get the body they have always wanted.

 

  • Pool workouts – There are a variety of pool workouts that can really get you looking good. Alternating swim strokes when doing laps is a good start and there are various exercises to do in the pool, such as dolphin kicks and tuck jumps.

 

  • High intensity – There are several high-intensity workouts that push you to your limits. F45 is one of the newest trends that utilizes interval training. Cardio boxing workouts take up less time and sprinting intervals operate under the same premise.

 

  • Streaming workouts – Adults on the go can now stream their workouts. This allows them to be in a group setting regardless of where they are located. The fact that there is a fee required for most streaming workouts also helps with the accountability factor.

 

Accountability

Sooner or later, most people will make a resolution to eat right and work out so they can lose weight. But not everyone can do it alone. The accountability factor is tough to maintain when there is no one else along for the ride. Here are some ways you can improve and maintain accountability.

 

  • Get coached up – Having a coach to push you through those tough days can go a long way. However, a coach does not have to be a professional trainer. It can be a workout partner or friend that trains with you each session.

 

  • Track yourself – There are various apps and devices that track how much activity you do in a day. Set goals for yourself at the start of each week and track them, even if it’s a set number of hours at the gym. Track your progress as you strive to meet weekly goals.

 

  • Join a program – Nowadays, there are all sorts of fitness & personal development programs. There is something for everyone. The best programs are the ones where you are learning, working out and having fun with friends at the same time…. Fitness Kickboxing, Yoga, CrossFit, Martial Arts, and Pilates are just a few to check out.

When you hit this “Trifecta” and follow through you will see amazing results… So WHAT are YOU WAITING FOR???

Stop reading this, get up and join a great program with great people to hold you accountable, get in there and hit those workouts, and start shifting that diet!
