Frequently Asked Questions

SKILLZ Fit

Are both group & private classes available?

Most of our members enjoy the group setting, but private sessions are available too depending on instructor availability.

Will your kickboxing class help me tone up?

Definitely. Our entire program was handcrafted to help you get lean & toned. Literally everything you do here helps you achieve this goal.

How many other people will there be in my class?

You can most likely expect 15-30, give or take a few depending on the day / time. We always make sure there are enough instructors no matter the class size though.

How many kickboxing sessions per week should I come to?

We advise 2-3 times for maximum results. However, some members come fewer times a week and see great results, and others come even more. It's all up to you.

Are there other beginners in the classes?

Yes, classes are full of people of all experience levels - including total beginners.

What's the difference between these classes and doing cardio on my own?

Our classes combine cardio with resistance & interval training to give you an ever-changing, always-new workout. Cardio by itself is actually pretty ineffective for weight loss. Your body eventually adapts to it, and results plateau. That's why we involve a variety of exercises and conditioning - so your body continues to see results every time you come.

Will you help me with my nutritional habits?

Absolutely. Nutrition is KEY to weight loss, and we'll pass along the powerful knowledge we've put together over the years. (By the way, our nutrition program is all about naturally improving your diet - NOT forcing foods on you that you don't like or starving yourself).

What kind of shape should I be in before getting started?

Whatever shape you're in right now is just fine. If you're not in shape, we'll help you get there. And if you're already in shape, we'll help you get in even better shape, fast.

Adult Martial Arts

Q: “Is there a risk for injury with Martial Arts?”

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, certified professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.

Q: “What level of fitness is required for martial arts?”

You'll get in shape as you go. You don't have to be in great shape to start.

The great thing about martial arts is you can be at any fitness level and do great. That's because there's no rush or pressure to do anything quickly. You can learn at your own pace.

If you have a knack for it, you can speed through techniques. If it's a bit harder for you, take your time. All we care about is that you're having fun, learning and progressing, and staying safe.

Q: “I've heard Martial Arts is violent. Is this true?”

Absolutely not! Martial Arts is about peace, balance & harmony. It's about becoming in touch with your body and all of life. It's about happiness and fulfillment.

The self-defense techniques you learn help you become flexible and strong. They help you become confident and proud.

The guiding principles of Martial Arts help you diffuse situations before violence becomes a part of them. However, if a hostile situation does ever come about, you'll have the tools you need to keep you and your loved ones safe.
