I highly recommend taking a kickboxing class with Mrs. Elizabeth Cummings at ATA Martial Arts Studio. Find out how empowered you become after just one class!
When I first entered ATA Martial Arts Studio, I was greeted warmly by Ms. Bethany Gagelin. Her excitement transferred immediately as she eagerly got me signed up. Ms. Bethany’s radiating energy was welcomed after my long day at work. I also knew just how out of shape I had recently become.
Watching the chatter around the room, it was easy to see that everyone was family at ATA Martial Arts Studio. I was welcomed right off the bat. I knew I was in great hands from the second Mrs. Cummings started us with warm ups. She was never far away and always assisting me.
The coolest thing about kickboxing at ATA is that you never feel helpless. I knew it would be a struggle. I had no stamina; I was overweight, and weaker than a small tree twig! This class was going to kick my butt. But if you do have to take a breather, at least five people come running with moral support. I swear I heard more "You're doing great!" "You've got this!" "I'm so proud of you!" comments in one hour than I had in an entire month. This was an incredible family I would die to be a part of. Even though I still have to quit early in the game, I'm motivated to push through longer each time. With only two classes under my belt, I am already missing my new friends and a great workout.
I was so mentally and physically at peace, and already empowered after that first class. It was easy to just fall asleep when I was done. I cannot wait to see where I'm at once I finish my ten classes. So far, it's one of my favorite things new activities.
A girl just trying to find her way, stepping outside of her comfort zone, trying new things, and making new friends along the way!
