Schedule

Mondays and Wednesdays 4:30-5 pm (Group A) & 5-5:30 pm (Group B), Tuesday & Thursday mornings 11-11:45 am  (Group C) and Saturdays 1-1:45 pm (Groups A, B & C).

What is Fast Burn 30?

Fast Burn 30 uses an exercise methodology known as High Intensity Interval Training which utilizes short and intense workouts in order to burn fat. HIIT sessions can vary from 9–30 minutes and is considered to be an excellent way to maximize a workout that is limited on time.

Several scientific studies have shown that High Intensity Short Workouts can have the same if not better results than traditional aerobic type exercises (e.g. Treadmill, Jogging, Bicycling etc.) in much less time. Long aerobic type workouts have traditionally been recognized as being the best method to reduce fat. HIIT is somewhat counterintuitive in this regard, but has nonetheless been shown to burn fat more effectively. One theory suggests that HIIT may boost your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) which is a measure of how fast your body metabolizes food or fuel sources (like glycogen & fat into energy. Obviously the higher your BMR the faster you will lose fat (you will become and best of all, your BMR remains high even between workout sessions.

Fitness Benefits Cancer Patients

Fitness Benifits Cancer Patients

by Melanie Brown

Most people are aware of the link between physical fitness and overall health. However, some cancer patients neglect this aspect of their recovery or feel that they simply do not have the energy or motivation to get in shape during such an arduous process. The good news is that fitness can help you in almost every aspect of your life, including battling cancer. It can give you extra energy for daily activities, it can lift your spirits through its mood-boosting effects, and it can help you sleep better and more soundly at night.
It may seem illogical that exercising will give you more energy but actually, the energy you expend during exercise will give you more long-lasting energy and endurance over a longer period of time. This is true even for those suffering from cancers like those of the lungs, breast, and mesothelioma.
You may be picturing yourself doing grueling sessions of lifting weights or long runs, but this is not necessary to reap the benefits of exercise. Almost any exercise you can do on a regular basis will have some positive benefits. You should start out slowly, only gradually building up the pace and intensity of your exercise. The main thing is to always listen to what your body is telling you. If you are pushing yourself too hard, it will let you know. Then you will know to ease back a bit during your next session because overexertion can hurt you in the long run during treatments.
Another key point is to make sure your oncology team is aware of your desire to improve your fitness. They can offer advice on what type and intensity of exercise is appropriate for someone in your stage of treatment. If you do things right, your increased fitness level will give you more energy, endurance, and lift your mood. Stick with it for the best results!

Running

One great form of exercise that has helped some cancer patients is running or jogging. Running will boost endorphin release, which helps elevate your mood and dampen feelings of pain. You will also build your muscle strength and endurance.
Make sure that you are wearing appropriate footwear. You will also want to run on surfaces like grass instead of pavement. This helps prevent damage to your knees, ankles, and feet. Joint pain is a common side effect for cancer patients so it is important to be mindful of where you are running and the toll it could take.
Remember to run only a short distance your first time to see how your body responds. You might even take a few days off before your second attempt. This will allow your body time to recover from suddenly having these muscles stressed. Just as with any other exercise you may try, start slow and build your way up.

Swimming

Unless you have a heated pool available, this one may be seasonal for you. But swimming is another great way to get fit. One of the great things about swimming is that it is very forgiving on your joints. The buoyancy of the water will support your weight and reduce stress on those areas. Be sure to try out different strokes so that you are getting balanced development in your various muscle groups. The variety will also help keep you motivated.

No matter what activities you partake in, as long as you are consistently active you will begin to see the benefits in no time. Research shows that regular physical activity can not only help combat cancer and improve your well being while do so, but it can also help reduce the odds of developing cancer for those who have not been diagnosed. As for those who have already beaten cancer, it is equally as important to stay active because it can reduce the odds of recurrence as well.

Kettlebell Testimonial – Changing your Life!

What classes do you guys offer that will help me lose weight?

Many prospective members come to Baltimore Martial Arts & Fitness asking us what classes or programs that we offer will help them lose weight. Often they tell us that they need something to motivate them because the gym has become boring or that they work out harder when someone is there to push them. A personal trainer can often help, assuming you can find a good one, which is extremely difficult. Personal training can also be costly (e.g. $50/hour).

If you want to lose weight and keep the weight off and if your story is similar to one described above, consider group fitness classes. Baltimore Martial Arts offers several group fitness classes of which you can take one or more for an affordable price. If you combine our fitness programs with a sensible diet (e.g. Whole 30) and you come to class regularly, we promise that you will achieve your health goals. We don’t just help people get fit and look good, we help change people’s live. Read the testimonial below that one of our members recently sent to us.

For a long time now, I have been wanting to thank you for your generosity in giving us such a discount on the kettlebell classes. We would not have been able to afford them had you not done that for us and I have to tell you they were pretty life changing for me. I am sooo grateful to you! I have always been a pretty active person and truly do enjoy exercising, but also always thought that I was just “built bigger”. I had honestly convinced myself that no matter how much I worked out, I’d just have a thick, stocky, athletic body and was pretty miserable and uncomfortable in my own skin. Well you and your example totally changed my way of thinking!! Hopefully this doesn’t sound too weird haha, but seeing how lean, healthy, and yet still feminine your body is – I realized I could probably get there too if I actually tried. Your positive motivation and confidence in my ability to push myself made me want to do just that – push myself and see how far I could get. Thanks to your motivation and encouragement to be healthy and strong, both directly and through your example, I have lost 50 pounds since having Louie in February. Sadly only 20 of that was weight I had gained during pregnancy, but I’m never going back to those numbers again. I still have a bit more body fat to lose, but I’m almost there. So thank you, thank you so much! If there is ever anything I can do to help you, please let me know! Hope you are doing well!

Tara V.

Jogging and tons of Cardio are Great for Weight Loss, so are Cancer and Aids

Cardio Aerobics is Counter Productive to your Health

Most people think that running on treadmill or doing “Cardio” aerobics is good for losing weight and for improving health. This may be true to a degree, but new scientific evidence suggests that this approach is becoming outdated and that “Cardio” exercise could actually be detrimental to your metabolism and that there are better ways to lose weight and improve your health.

Six Reasons Why Aerobic Work is Counterproductive by Keith Alpert, Strength Coach from Boston

  1. Continuous aerobic work plateaus after 8 weeks of training so anything more is counterproductive.
  2. Aerobic training worsens power locally and systemically – in other words, it can make you slower.
  3. Aerobic training increases oxidative stress which can accelerate aging.
  4. Aerobic training increases adrenal stress which can make you fatter and produce other undesirable health consequences
  5. Aerobic training increases body fat in stressed individuals by contributing additional stress.
  6. Aerobic training worsens testosterone/cortisol ratio which impedes your ability to add fat burning lean muscle.

For more in depth information about Aerobics and why Cardio is counterproductive please click HERE.

High Intensity Interval Training

High Intensity Interval Training (HITT) is exercise close to or at one’s maximum ability for short durations of time (e.g. 10-30 seconds). HITT workout sessions typically last from 5-30 minutes.  High Intensity Interval Training is scientifically proven to help people lose weight, tone muscle and improve their health.

Danyelle's Figure 8 Month's After Second Baby

Our Fast Burn 30 group Kettlebell Classes at Baltimore martial Arts are 30 minute classes of high intensity interval exercises that are specifically designed to engage your bodies energy systems which will help you maximize fat loss, increase muscle tone and get in the best shape of your life.

  • Do you have a limited amount of time to invest in exercise?
  • Is your time valuable?
  • Do you want to make the most of your time?
  • Do you eat enough and get enough sleep?
  • Are you stressed?
  • Are you bored of your regular workout routine?
  • Would you like to lose some extra weight and get toned muscles?

If you answered yes to any of the following questions you should look into our Fast Burn 30 minute high intensity group kettlebell classes at Baltimore Martial Arts and Fitness. See FAST BURN 30

Catonsville Kickboxing Classes Thursdays

Kickboxing Classes

Baltimore Martial Arts and Fitness has added another day and time to its Kickboxing Classes on Thursday evenings 6:30-7:30PM. Thursday night kickboxing class will be taught by Sue Rexford, CPT, HKC and Sensei Gary Berger.

Our Kickboxing Classes are tough workouts which are as close as it gets to real kickboxing but without the sparring. Most of our kickboxing classes are partnership based where one person is punching and kicking while the other is holding kicking shields, focus mitts or heavy bags.

Make no mistake, this is not Kickboxing Aerobics. In our kickboxing classes you will punch, kick, and knee targets as hard as you can while learning safe and proper technique. Proper form is important because when you move right you can express your power more efficiently and get more out of your kickboxing workout. Not to mention you will be learning an effective means of self defense.

Danyelle Berger, CSCS, RKCII

Danyelle Berger received her Russian Kettlebell Challenge (RKC) level two certification on Sunday July 10th 2011. The RKC Challenge is a brutal three day test of strength, endurance, kettlebell skills and the ability to teach those skills to others. RKC standards are very high often yielding high failure rates among among RKC applicants.

The picture below is what Danyelle’s hands looked like after day one.

A price to pay being an RKC instructor.

Typical occurrence at RKC certification events. RKC students often have to tape their hands as a result. This is part of RKC training and something that makes RKC so grueling and certification so hard to achieve.

Danyelle Berger has been training and preparing for her level 2 kettlebell certification for about a year. Her hard work and perseverance paid off as she is heading home as a level 2 RKC instructor and able to share her knowledge and new experiences with her students at Baltimore Martial Arts and Fitness.

Female RKCII Candidates in Minneapolis, July 2011

This particular group of women were “Historical” being the STRONGEST group of ladies that the RKC has ever seen. Amazing feats of strength were accomplished with one woman, Krystal Robens, strict pressing a 32kg kettlebell over her head. Other notable female accomplishments include – Nikki Shlosser 40kg Bent Press Shannon O’Neil 32kg Bent Press & Molly Bird 24kg Bent Press (could easily have done 28). Adrianne Harvey attempted “Iron Maiden” which requires doing a pistol squat, a military press and a pull up with a 24kg kettlebell. Her pistol squat was solid, her press was solid and came within 3 inches of doing her pull up. So close!!!
