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.
When I first started Hapkido in Oct 2015, the idea of attaining a black belt was daunting.
People from various areas of my life had stacked reasons against me:
– I’m too small/not athletically built.
– My joints won’t be able to handle the strain.
– I’m so busy with work and my Masters degree, I can’t commit the hours needed for martial arts success.
– I’m female so I will always lose against my male counterparts.
In short, there were plenty of non-martial artists telling me “NO!”.
Where people have told me “No”, I’ve told myself “Hell, why not?” and now I can say:
– Being small can be advantageous. Just gotta learn how to work it.
– Stronger muscles means better supported joints. My wrists, elbows, knees and back don’t hurt anywhere near as they did before.
– I get 24 hours in a day like everyone else. I make time for things I love or find important.
– Being female means I will be underestimated (but we all know better ). Good luck to any male (or female) that underestimates me!
Fast forward 2 years, I am so close to going for 1st Dan. Actually, I’m determined to get it in 2018.
I haven’t done anything even vaguely like Hapkido in my life but in my 50s I was thinking that I needed to push myself to keep taking physical risks. I’d had brain surgery and was afraid to fall down. It’s been a big hurdle. To others it doesn’t mean much but to me it does.
