New Orleans Personal Training for Martial Arts, Self-Defense, Kettlebells, Fitness, and Meditation
In these stressful, busy times for the New Orleans area, it can be difficult to motivate yourself to exercise enough. Your health is the most important thing you have, and the proper amount of exercise will help lift your mood, relieve stress, focus your mind and boost your immunity to disease. One-on-one training with a professional instructor can help you set and track your goals for fitness, health, weight loss and personal accomplishment.
Personal training sessions can be customized to your goals and needs, and scheduled at your convenience. Scheduling regular sessions with your trainer will help you prioritize fitness in your weekly routine, and motivate you to follow through in caring for yourself and your health.
Martial Arts Fitness Training
Personal training sessions with our professional black belt instructors can focus on any aspect of fitness, health, martial arts, self-defense, or meditation. We also specialize in a functional form of strength training using kettlebells, strengthening the body across multiple planes and muscle groups. It's like doing yoga with weights.
Martial arts-based fitness programs are a fun, motivational, and practical way to hit every parameter of fitness: strength, flexibility, endurance, balance and coordination. You learn to defend yourself while you get leaner, stronger, faster, healthier and more confident. Learning how to set and achieve goals in concrete physical terms also teaches you that you can accomplish your dreams, and build the life you want, with a clear plan and the determination to follow through. We can help you create a personal training plan, which may include:
- Bodyweight callisthenic exercises.
- Chinese yoga: The I Ching Ching, or “Tendon Change Classics” are the foundational training of Shaolin kung fu. It is a system of exercise similar to yoga that incorporates a range of strength training exercises, isometric tension, and stretching while simultaneously training focus and mindfulness.
- Russian Kettlebells and weight training for integrated, whole-body strength and coordination.
- Boxing and kickboxing drills for cardio fitness, weight loss, and self-defense.
All Shaolin training has been passed down from Buddhist and Taoist temples and, therefore, is steeped in traditions of meditation, self-awareness, and mindfulness. Modern medicine has finally realized the importance of these subjects in the realm of mental and physical health. If you're interested in training these aspects or our art, we could focus private sessions on the "moving meditation" of tai chi and chi kung. Or learn ultimate quiet and stillness through our Taoist breathing and meditation techniques.
Advanced Martial Arts Training
Finally, if you are an experienced martial artist, or simply want to focus solely on one aspect of our immense kung fu or tai chi curriculum, we can cater personal instruction to specific training styles or techniques to suit your needs. This could be working with a particular weapon, or training only in a certain style like:
- white crane
- drunken boxing
- tai chi chuan (taijiquan)
- pa kua chang (baguazhang)
- hsing ie chuan (xing yi quan)
Wherever you are interested in focusing your efforts, we can design a martial arts course custom tailored for you!
