Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1

    Do I need to be in shape to enroll for Adult Fitness classes?

    No! Although we definitely suggest maintaining an active lifestyle, if you haven't exercised in years, many of our classes will still be accessible. Once you're good at them and getting closer to your goals, you'll be able to increase the intensity and try harder classes. Before you know it, you'll be looking and feeling fantastic.

    Can I try a Fitness Class/Kids Fitness Class before I sign up?

    Yes and no. Some programs offer enrollment in a 6 week course, others offer a free class. Check the program page for the class in which you're interested to see the Trial offer. For our Childcare Alternative programs, we are unable to offer a trial, but we do offer a free tour of our facility prior to enrollment.

    How Often Should I Attend Class?

    As much as you'd like! We see the most success with at least 2 classes per week. Because we have membership options with unlimited class attendance, many members are here 3-5 or even 6 days a week. That's not necessary but the more you attend, the better your results!

    Do I have to sign up for a certain period of time?

    Some of our programs offer a 6 week course, but there's no obligation to enroll after the course is completed. Monthly memberships are month to month, with no contract or commitment required.


  • Positive environment to learn marital arts, leadership and character. My son has been attending for a couple of years and grown in his confidence as well as focus. The instructors care about each child and are among the best in their field. Highly recommend!

  • My little brother (11) attends classes here 2-3 times every week. I have only taken him a couple of times but the Sensei's take charge of the class and teach real life defense tactics that will help in the future of a problem arises. I have seen improvements on his self confidence and willingness to practice new moves that he would have shyed away from prior. After seeing how he is with my brother I am planning to join the Kickboxing and Adult Karate classes myself.
