I take kickboxing at ATA and it is incredible. I was so scared going into a kickboxing class because I had no experience but as soon as the class started, my fears went away. All of the instructors are patient, kind and motivating. Instead of screaming at you when you fall behind, they smile and help you catch up or just catch your breath. This is so unique in the fitness community and it's a gem.

I've been attending for about a year. Definitely the best workout environment I've ever been in. Workouts are challenging, always changing up so its not boring and keeps my interest. The owners and staff are loyal to their clients, and they truly care about your goals--I'll even get a text asking where I've been if I've missed two or so classes! And it's CLEAN!

My 9 year old son has been attending for over 3 years and loves it. It is his favorite thing to do. The instructors are amazing and caring! I also love the kickboxing program. While my son is taking his taekwondo class, I can take the kickboxing class. It is a great, challenging, and fun workout with the very best instructors that motivate you! We love ATA!

We have had the most wonderful experience at ATA Hillcrest. These last 2 testing cycles, my boys have been learning all about respect and self esteem. Not only are they learning martial arts, but important life skills too. The instructors are patient and enthusiastic. I feel like they are truly invested in my boys, they know them by name and are genuinely interested in how they are doing. I’m so glad that we started this journey to a black belt with ATA Hillcrest!!!!

I was visiting the Mobile area from Nashville TN and wanted to train a little while I was here. I teach Krav Maga in TN. One important thing I noticed was the commradery between everyone. They were very welcoming to a visitor. Had a great time and met some good people. Hope to train with them again sometime.

Top Four Benefits of Working out With a Loved One

There are few things quite like working out with a partner or spouse – a loved one of any sort. No matter martial arts, fitness kickboxing or Krav Maga, there are some benefits to exercising together. From perfecting your form to keeping each other motivated, you’ll find them here read on to find out more.

One of the most difficult things about an exercise regimen of any kind is sticking to it. You might be tempted to take one day off, and that leads to a pattern of skipped practices and classes. Working out with your loved one can keep you both motivated. You won’t be tempted to stay on the couch together when you both want to practice your Taekwondo or kickboxing moves.

The two of you can go over what you’ve learned in class together and treat each other as training partners. If you’re on different levels, you can still make this work, since you’ll be learning from each other as you go along.

3) It’s easy to set up workout times since you know each other’s schedules

Another great thing about practicing  with your loved one is the fact that you know each other’s schedules. You can set up your combined workout times a week or two in advance, and if you need to reschedule, then you won’t have to worry about playing phone tag. Having a set schedule can keep you both on track.

4) Workouts will be much more fun

Everyone loves spending time with their spouse or partner. Usually, that time consists of relaxing in front of the television, cooking meals together, or even having a date night. A combined martial arts  or kickboxing workout can be just another thing that the two of you do together. You’ll have plenty of fun together. When both of you enjoy spending time on the workout floor together, your relationship – and your martial arts skills – will grow stronger.
