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 🙂

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.

Stay Safe, Live Well™,
