Our indoor bootcamps aren’t like your average gym-based group fitness class. We pride ourselves in not only providing functional and effective training but in creating a motivating, dynamic environment filled with like-minded people of all ages and body types. Our workouts primarily include body weight exercises, higher repetition movements to work on toning, coordinated body movements for agility and some boxing and kicking to give you a martial arts based kick start.
Each indoor bootcamp session is different to provide you with a varied workout which is great for motivation as well as for fitness. We are also very focused on ensuring you complete all exercises with great technique. This makes sure everything you do in our indoor bootcamp with us counts towards your fitness goals.
Our cardio boxing classes are a mix of technique building, cardio workout, and a few controlled kicks thrown in to provide some variation. Cardio boxing is fantastic – your heart rate will be lifted, as will your spirits, as you smash out a great workout and get rid of any stress or anxiety.
At CMA we have a wonderful community of members so in addition to our highly trained instructors you will always have a great partner to support you and help you to push through your barriers. Boxing gloves and mits are provided – you just need to bring along some cotton inserts so we can keep our equipment hygienic. You will walk away from every class feeling totally pumped!
Our flexfit class is a mix of strength and stretching. The classes are suited to all fitness levels with a focus on lengthing muscles and building functional strength. Stretching helps with posture, balance, range of motion and flexibility, which are important both in your martial arts and fitness training, as well as in your everyday activities.
While the class is relaxing in its format, it is also a great low-impact workout using body weight and body positioning to challenge you. Flexfit is also a great stress-relief allowing you the opportunity to slow down and unwind at the end of your week. You will walk away from every class feeling relaxed and ready to face whatever the week has in store!
TURBO30 & ABSmash
There are many different ways you can approach your training depending on your goals and the time you have available. Our Turbo30 classes provide you with an awesome workout in just 30 minutes. In each session our qualified instructor will bring out your best with an all-out, one hundred percent effort workout. This includes intense bursts of exercise followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.
We’ve paired these workouts with a 15 minute ABSmash session which focuses on strengthening your abdominal and back muscles to build core stability. ABSmash is great addition to your Turbo30 workout, or they can be stand-alone sessions if you have other places you need to be. These sessions are great workouts for all fitness levels – with progressions, regressions and variations provided.

SUCCESS STORIES FROM MEMBERS
Had a bad car accident at 27 years old and was told I’d never do any sport again. 35 years old and I met an amazing doctor who helped me and he help me set up a good support team of physiotherapists and massage therapists. Started taekwondo at 37 years old and at first every lesson meant days of pain and intensive physiotherapy afterwards. But slowly i was getting fitter and stronger through taekwondo. Finally at 41 years old I was strong enough to take on obstacle racing and of course that meant Tough Mudder (21 km obstacle course). I still have physio but it’s now only once a month (and not as intensive as it used to be). Everyday I’m at taekwondo is a massive win for me. I love training. It’s my happy place.
Around 8 yrs old, decided on my own to start training, my parents didn’t make me go ever. One of my distant friends was training, along with lots of people I recognized in my community. They all left through the years and I decided to stay, despite changeovers in instructors 4 times as well. I think that’s success for a kid/teenager. As a result, I got the long term benefits mentally, physically and I gained the disciple to train hard at home all my life. I reached my peak at 16 but was told I was too old for a junior black belt and too young for a senior black belt so I waited. Just the next year I quickly learned life started to get more complicated and therefore harder to focus: college, uni, work, having a family. I’ve been training on and off for the last 10 years but never was able to peak like that again. Being older I also started noticing flaws in the organization, stayed loyal and determined as previously but those flaws started becoming unfair which made it hard to excel. Also, after having my first born I felt like I lost most of my identity and needed to reconnect with my old self, it was a success for me not to give up and stop forever despite obstacles and that I found this club and supportive team at 27. Taekwondo is also my happy place. I’m looking forward to the future!
I began training at Canberra Martial Arts (formerly Hapkido Canberra) in late September 2016, after a decade long hiatus from any form of Martial Arts training. After just one trial lesson I immediately fell in love with Hapkido and signed up right there and then – the start of my Hapkido journey. Since then I have acquired new and exciting skills and job-specific crowd control/arrest techniques, participated in several gradings/tests through which I have obtained my Blue 3 stripe belt (4th Gup) currently and will be attempting to grade/test for my Red Belt (3rd Gup) at the end of the year. I also plan to obtain my 1st Dan Black Belt in 2018. Through my time at Canberra Martial Arts, I have met and continue to meet an amazing, diverse group of likeminded people and am developing long-lasting, close friendships. I have begun to see my confidence grow every day and gain a better understanding of myself and what I can achieve if I put the effort in. I am looking forward to the challenges, experiences, and opportunities that lay ahead on my Hapkido path with the new friends and colleagues that I have made here at Canberra Martial Arts.
