Best Workout For Women

Training in Mixed Martial Arts is quickly becoming the most popular workout for people of all ages.  But for women, the benefits far outweigh traditional gym classes by teaching the invaluable life skill of self-defense. Being prepared to handle yourself in tough situations builds a confidence that no amount of circuit or strength training can replace. 

Not Just For Men

Look no further than the current female UFC champions; Amanda Nunes, Zhang Weili and Valentina Shevchenko to see that combat sports are certainly not just for men. Some of the very best martial artists in the entire world are women. It is crucial in todays social environment that every woman learns effective self defense skills. It’s not only important for you, but also for your family, in the event that you face a threat you cannot avoid. Our classes will prepare and train you for those worst case scenarios, but do so in a safe and controlled way. As your skills and confidence steadily increase, you’ll be able to defend yourself in any situation. 

Total Body and Mind Workout

Martial Arts training goes way beyond the traditional gym workout. You’ll tone quickly and find muscles you never knew you had! It would be hard to find a workout that pushes your mind, body, core and cardio to a higher level – and all those cylinders are firing off at the same time. When you are hitting a heavy bag, doing Jiu-Jitsu, or kickboxing with a training partner, every cell in your body is in full tilt. You are thinking, learning and sizing up your target, pushing yourself physically and mentally in a way no gym class ever could. 

Weight Loss the FUN Way

Martial Arts classes are one of the most efficient ways to lose weight without harming your overall health.  No more strict diets and starving your body.  You’ll burn calories in a totally natural way, sometimes up to 1000 per hour! You’ll also receive guidance from the coaches at Union on healthier eating habits. And our classes are SO FUN!  There’s a reason why gym-goers are scrolling social media while on a treadmill – treadmills are boring! 

Great Stress Reliever

It feels really good to hit something and not get in trouble for it! We love to see how relaxed people look after our classes.  They come in sometimes looking a little stressed out, but after an hour of punching and kicking, that tension just melts away.
