Martial Arts is a great way to commit to excercise
Get your head in the game
Losing weight is 50 percent attitude. If you aren’t mentally, emotionally, and psychologically committed to making a change, it’s not worth starting a weight-loss program.
As long as you keep moving, you will be working toward your goal. The exercise component is crucial to maintaining energy, boosting metabolism and helping you to feel better every day. Even the smallest amount of physical activity can reap big rewards. Keep moving! Continue reading

Adults gain stress relief at Martial Arts
Martial Arts is a fun and physical activity
Physical exercise helps with stress relief this is where you can forget about everything for an hour to two. Rebalance your working week.
Observe this one rule when you plan physical activities: be choosy. Sounds simple, but the impact that choice has on the way you feel about exercise is anything but. In one study, exercisers were far more likely to report feeling good – both physically and psychologically – when they chose a preferred activity.
When you’re enjoying yourself, you get totally distracted from the fact that you are even exerting yourself and doing work. Fatigue is less prevalent, and you may even exercise longer, so choose something that trips your happy trigger and you’ll be looking forward to exercise.
Our old logo has been with us since 2007 and it was time for a rebrand, to something more striking and in the Choi Kwang Do style. Students voted on a selection of designs and this is our winner. We look forward to seeing the new logo on the new flag for the next grading.

Healthy Lifestyle Tip: Local exercise classes with a difference, martial arts, it’s not as scary as you think!
While it’s true that our metabolism naturally slows down as we get older, these tips can help people of all ages and sizes optimise their daily calorie burn.
Aerobic exercise is the key!
You probably already know that aerobic exercise helps rev up your metabolism and thus burns calories while you’re doing it. But did you know that aerobic activities also cause your metabolism to stay revved up for a period of time after exercising?

Increase your brain feel-good with Martial Art fitness
Healthy Lifestyle Tip: Feel Good
1. Exercise pumps up endorphins. Physical activity helps increase the production of the brain’s “feel-good” neurotransmitters, called endorphins.
2. Exercise is meditation in motion. After exercising, most of us have forgotten the day’s irritations by concentrating only on the body’s movements. Often people discover that regular exercise helps people remain calm and clear in everything that they do.
3. Exercise generally improves mood. Regular exercise can increase self-confidence and lower the symptoms associated with anxiety. Many people find they sleep better when they have exercised.
Martial Arts exercises the whole body and mind
… Exercise triggers an increase in body temperature, and the post-exercise drop in temperature may promote falling asleep. Exercise may also reduce insomnia by decreasing arousal, anxiety and depressive symptoms. Insomnia is commonly linked with elevated arousal, anxiety, and depression, and exercise has strong effects on reducing these symptoms in the general population. Finally, exercise may reduce insomnia by its effects on circadian rhythms (body clock). For people with insomnia due to the timing of their body clock, exercise may shift its timing depending upon the time exercise is performed…
Building muscles and toning your body has more than just physical benefits
Martial Arts is for everyone of all ages.
Healthy Lifestyle Tip: Can You ‘Train’ Yourself to Have More Willpower?
You can train your body, your mind… and your will power. That’s according to a study which said that with a little practice, it may be possible to strengthen and improve your self-control.
The study suggests self-control, or willpower, is like
“building a muscle.” “The more you ‘exercise’ it by working out even when you don’t feel like it, the more you’ll increase and strengthen your self-control ‘muscle’ and quite possibly improve your health,”
says lead author Tricia M. Leahey, Ph.D. Building muscle and toning your body has more than just physical benefits. It can also aid you with willpower and self-control. Being able to accomplish this every day is a great motivator. Knowing that you have done something to improve your body makes you not want to spoil it.
Martial Arts goals are achieved in every class
Our Martial Art classes are about learning and improving techniques in every class. Praise is given regularly helping you achieve these small goals. Grading is our larger goal and is achieved every 3-4 months, if you are ready.
Whether you are contemplating a big change, working toward achieving a goal or just trying to get through the day, these quotes should give you a little dose of inspiration and motivation.

Healthy Lifestyle Tip: Mental Toughness
Positive Affirmations Prior to Exercise
Positive thoughts will increase your energy level. Telling yourself that you are out of shape and not as strong or flexible as you used to be can rob you of necessary energy. Prior to exercise, think about your unique skills and abilities. Positive thoughts create enthusiasm and excitement.
One of the strategies that athletes use is visualising success before they begin competing. You can apply this same principle to your own workouts.
Replace Negative Thoughts with Positive Thoughts
The tendency is to focus on weaknesses and failures and beat yourself up for not being in better shape. Mental toughness involves consciously avoiding negative thoughts about failure during exercise, and replacing those thoughts with positive ones.
The next time you work out, reward yourself with the positive thought that you are doing it! You might notice that you are a bit stronger.
Martial Arts stimulates the brain too
We tend to feel more energised and ready to tackle the world after a good workout! Read on for more energy boosters…
Healthy Lifestyle Tip: Energy Boosters to Get You through the Day
Get your exercise. Vigorous exercise can act like a stimulant (which is a great daytime energiser), so schedule your workouts in the morning or afternoon when you need a boost the most. Sources: realage.com, webmd.com
