Normally I don’t like exercise that much, so to motivate myself to get in better shape, I signed up for a martial arts class. I lost 2 inches off my waist, I’m having fun and learning some great skills in the process. IYAMHEALTHY

After several years as a desk-pusher, I got involved in a martial arts class. It’s better than hitting the gym, lots more fun and doubles as real life self defense.
The best part is even though I cut down my calorie intake, I don’t have to diet as closely as I did working at a desk job. I lost 2 inches off my waist without trying! IYAMHEALTHY

Two and a half years ago, I made the decision to take up Martial Arts not only to get into better shape but to help give my self-esteem a much needed boost. I was a mess to say the least! After years of extensive training and self-discipline I not only have earned my Black Belt but gained almost 15 pounds of muscle, run 5-10 miles 3 times a week, haven’t used my asthma medication once in over a year and gained the confidence I was always lacking.
