  • Krav Maga: How Bad do you Want it?

    How bad do you want what you say you want? A lot of people talk the talk but when it comes down to it they lack the willpower, drive, and discipline to make it happen. It gets old hearing people say sick that they can’t do something. “I can’t fix my diet” “I can’t train as much as I’d like to” “I cant exercise hard”. These statements are usually followed up by a bunch of lame excuses. “I don’t have time” “I have a bad metabolism” “I don’t have the proper equipment”. My personal favorite is when these people blame it on other people ....

  • Fitness: What is HIIT?

    What is HIIT? HIIT or "high intensity interval training" has become one of the hottest fitness trends for 2018 for good reason. The core of HIIT is to give a high intensity effort for quick bursts followed by short periods of rest. For example, a person may give maximum effort while sprinting for 30 seconds followed by 60 seconds of recovery time. This cycle is then repeated for a total workout length of 10 to 30 minutes. Research has shown that HIIT pumps up the heart rate and burns calories in less time than standard aerobic workouts. Studies found that 20min of high intensity interval training can produce the same aerobic and anaerobic benefits as exercising for twice as ....

    If you want to be something you’ve never been, you need to do something you’ve never done. How many of you are trapped in a cycle of unhappiness?

  • Self Defense for Self Esteem

    When I was 31 years old, I stepped into a place that I had always wanted to try but never had the nerve. I was a very shy young lady, with absolutely no confidence. Never had a bone of fitness in my body. It was a product of being a victim my whole life. Surviving some of the most brutal beatings that would have most people running for the door, but to where? My home life was no better. It was then that I decided to give this place a try, what would I have to lose? Well, I did lose a lot, but gained my self esteem, self worth and more courage than I thought I would ever have. Moving forward is difficult, especially when you have no idea of the possible outcome. But, moving ....

  • Krav Maga: The 10 most dangerous words!

    The ten most dangerous words in the English language are "what will other people think, what will other people say". It doesn't matter what others think or say. Cast aside their negativity. Never let a person who gave up their on their dreams talk you out of yours. I've said it before and I will say it again: the only person who has the right to tell you that you can't do something is you. Just because others didn't have the strength to fight for what they believe in doesn't mean you will fall to the same weakness. Go after what you want and go after what you believe in. Don't listen to others. Listen to the person who matters most: YOU. Just because ....

  • Krav Maga Standards

    Standards are very important but remember, they’re just the entry fee! They will get you in the door or the conversation of real performance. Don’t box yourself in and decide that since you’ve met the minimum requirements, you either never have to test them again, or for some reason feel like you don’t have to put forth any more effort. KMI instructors are here to inspire continual growth and that requires that you keep challenging, testing, and pushing yourself day after day, class after class and year after year. Don’t ever arrive. The destination is actually the journey! ....

  • Krav Maga: I don't have time

    Don't tell me you don't have time. Just tell me you don't want it badly enough. I'd much rather hear a person be honest and have them admit that something isn't important rather than hear a list of their excuses. Excuses are designed to make you feel better temporarily but they don't change anything. If you're interested in change, if you're interested in success, then drop the excuses. At the end of the day you've got two choices. Make progress or make excuses. So cut the whining, quit blaming everyone but yourself, make your words consistent with your actions, go out and get what you want! ....

  • S.P.E.C Fitness: Optimal Life Performance

    S.P.E.C Fitness: Optimal life Performance I train for a lot of reasons most people do; fitness, injury proofing, aesthetics, and performance. In my mind performance is the most important reason. But this is not the performance you would typically think of, I am not a professional athlete or a high level sports competitor. I am a Dad, husband, family man, business executive. The performance I train for is optimal life performance. I believe in order to highly perform in life you have to be resilient, be willing to test yourself while having the courage to fail then pick yourself back up and gain wisdom from not quitting. Do you know how you will react when life situations are ....
