Target Training (I Don’t Mean Striking)

So this post is probably not what you think .  I am not talking about striking a target on an attacker or even target shooting.  I am referring to targeting specific muscle groups to help shape and tone your body.I lead a NYC based fitness class called  The Self-Defense & Fitness Twist™ which allows women to target train three key areas – the glutes, abs and arms.  The way we target is specific to both conditioning, and the ability to perform self-defense techniques.  Over the next while, I will show you how to target your muscle groups with a little self-defense twist; while achieving  the awesome body you want.

Check out one of my workouts featured in Women’s Health HERE to see what The Self-Defense & Fitness Twist™ can do for your body 🙂

Empowerment Quote

No matter how terribly a journey may begin…the value is in the lessons learned along the way – the ability to overcome obstacles, the chance to make a difference in other’s lives, and the satisfaction of achieving what was once only a hope.

Staying Strong & Feminine

When I had begun to train in self-defense I found myself struggling with concerns over remaining feminine and keeping my curves.  As I worked my way through training courses, most being designed to break us down via conditioning hours upon hours; I found myself, as the only woman, able to keep up with the men.  As I progressed through drill after drill, I learned that most of the men also built themselves up with weight training and worked towards gaining muscle mass; I was determined to increase my conditioning without needing to weight train.  This dilemma led me to develop, through trial and error, the body that I wanted while still being able to take down an opponent.  I am glad to report that people often comment that I don’t look like I am able to do what I can do.  Throughout the fitness section of the blog, I will share my secrets of combining fitness conditioning and learning self-defense skills.

Female Survival Mindset

Hello!

When it comes to developing the Female Survival Mindset against the act or threat of violence, one of the first and most important seeds to plant is accepting the fact that you can become a target of violence or a sexual assault. Authentically accepting the fact that violence can happen anywhere, any time, and for any reason will spark the need and the will to want to take action in protecting your safety.

I WAS a Victim of a Sexual Assault

Good evening,

I Just wanted to thank The Huffington Post for featuring my article and helping me spread self-defense and empowerment to women. Remember, it is not about what happened, but how you overcome any negative experience in a positive and meaningful way.
