How Martial Arts and Fitness go together
How Martial Arts and Fitness go together
When martial arts were initially brought to the United States, most instructors were military soldiers and trainers. Their levels of physical conditioning were elite, as were their training methods for preparing individuals for self defense, combat and hard core physiques.
Today, many people still turn to martial arts for self defense, personal safety and protection of their family. However, more people are re-discovering the health and fitness benefits of martial arts. Many boot camps, workout videos like P90X, TV shows such as The Biggest Loser and others have taken martial arts into their workouts because of how effective it is helping people reach their goals.
Many workout routines fall short because they are boring, monotonous or simply fail to engage the participants. Martial arts on the other hand give people a sense empowerment and motivation to push themselves even harder during workouts. This motivation and engagement leads to great results.
Gyms, health clubs and more have seen a rise in popularity of martial arts programs. Universities, churches and community centers are also seeing more demand for this type of program. It’s not just for kids, but for adults too. Adults see the rapid weight loss, body toning and confidence that martial artists have and they want some for themselves. Kicking, punching and practicing their way to health and fitness, people who train in martial arts develop a kick butt body.
Some programs even have university backed research and ongoing development as part of their program. Though rooted in ancient traditions and philosophies of training, modern methods can be blended for even more effective fitness, safety and artistic advancement. Adults ask themselves why they would want to walk mindlessly on a treadmill for hours when they could be hitting a heavy bag, punching targets and actually enjoying their workouts instead of dreading them.
Add this to the additional teachings on stress relief, nutrition and overall healthy lifestyles and martial arts becomes a great choice for those looking for fitness.
Tiger Rock Martial Arts International is a great example of the expansion and prevalence of martial arts for self defense, fitness and weight loss. With nearly 200 locations around the United States, they have seen first-hand, the rising number of people turning to martial arts for fitness and weight loss. In Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska, Tiger Rock Academies have seen people looking for solutions or help with both adult obesity and childhood obesity. Families are realizing the need to be proactive and to be part of a lifestyle vs. some short term quick fix that doesn’t really work long term. 10 week programs or mini-camps etc. simply can’t deliver. The right martial arts program can and will deliver the benefits people are looking for in fitness and weight loss.
