Between you and me, fad routines are pretty bogus. They don’t have formal checks and balances to make sure people teach them safely. I’m looking at you Cross-Fit.
In martial arts, there are standards and accreditations that ensure consistency in training. At Bam Bam Martial Arts we take pride in our instructors and professional staff. We have over 50 years combined experience. This means we bring enthusiasm, patience and knowledge to every workout.
It also means we can spot a fad routine from a mile away!
From Zumba to P90X, Bikram to barre, we’ve seen it all. And like Zumba and P90X, Cross-Fit will eventually take a seat. The hipster fitness scene will burst with the next over-hyped trend touted by a celebrity.
But if you’re like me, you’re a regular person. You put your sneakers on one foot at a time, and your gym bag is not a Kate Spade.
So if you are looking for practical weight loss, why not choose a program that has stood the test of time? Martial arts is based in Asian culture and tradition that spans hundreds of years. Hundreds of years from now, do you think the people of the future will be talking about Cross-Fit? Of course not.
If it seems like we have a bit of an ax to grind with fad exercises. It’s because we do.
We see far too many injuries as a result of under-trained gym staff diving into a routine they don’t understand. Exercise is designed to get you in shape, but not at the price of serious injury.
So, instead of hopping from one exercise trend to another, why not find one that’s enjoyable to stick to? Black belts train for decades to reach their highest level of success.
Improving on your routine should always be a goal. That’s how you become an expert at something, by doing it over and over. That’s why it’s hard to find a Cross-Fit expert. Martial arts is for building character as much as it is building strength. Learning to finish what you start is a big part of that.
If you’re tired of the fads and ready to make a commitment that is fun, exciting and beneficial. We’re here for you. Come in for a free class today at Bam Bam Martial Arts.
