“I speak from having a Bachelors Degree in Sport Science, and having been a fitness instructor in the mid to late 90′s. I have tried many different training regimes in the past but the Warrior Fitness class stands out for combining the following aspects required for a warrior:

Teamwork

The training is done as a group and focus is on completion of tasks as a team, encouraging each other regardless of level so that classes end with a sense of combined achievement.

Variation

Although many core parts of the body are repeatedly exercised the methods used are extremely varied and include practices from as many cultures around the world as possible.

Motor Learning

Many of the exercises educate the body to improve muscle co-ordination while under tension or ballistic motion. An extremely useful component for improving performance and prevention of injury.

Adaptability

Old or young, new or experienced, even injured the exercises are adapted to suit the individual or general enough that one can work within ones limitations yet still join in.

Relevance

The exercises stretch and develop muscles key to not only martial arts but day to day living giving you some solid grounding for the warrior lifestyle.

Response

Even after just one session the beneficial feeling of increased blood flow, looseness and co-ordination are experienced.

Threshold

The level of training does not leave you too exhausted for a martial arts class to follow, too many regimes temporarily debilitate the performer making other activities less enjoyable and dangerous too. The threshold is just right so that maximum benefits can be achieved without losing focus on the main martial arts training.”

He has not only designed efficient and effective training programs for me, but more importantly has taught me how to more accurately define my personal goals and get the maximum benefit out of each workout. I have a very hectic schedule, but Jon makes it easy to integrate my workouts with minimal time. He is very responsive to any questions I may have, and getting answers to my sometimes hard-to-articulate questions is usually as simple as sending him an email.
