Both of my sons take classes here twice a week and in their words "it's awesome!!" Master Lindamood is more than patient with my 6 year old who is very easily distracted! He and my 14 year old are both having a great time learning their taekwondo movements while getting exercise and learning how to be respectful! It's a win win for everyone!

Top Four Benefits of Working out With a Loved One

There are few things quite like working out with a partner or spouse – a loved one of any sort. No matter type of martial arts you both practice, there are some benefits to exercising together. From perfecting your form to keeping each other motivated, you’ll find them here Read on to find out more.

1) You can keep each other motivated

One of the most difficult things about an exercise regimen of any kind is sticking to it. You might be tempted to take one day off, and that leads to a pattern of skipped practices and classes. Working out with your loved one can keep you both motivated. You won’t be tempted to stay on the couch together when you both want to practice your karate or kickboxing moves.

2) You have an automatic martial arts training partner

Even if you’re actively taking martial arts classes, you still need to practice your moves. And what better to do so than with your partner? The two of you can go over what you’ve learned in class together and treat each other as training partners. If you’re on different levels, you can still make this work, since you’ll be learning from each other as you go along.

3) It’s easy to set up workout times since you know each other’s schedules

Another great thing about practicing martial arts with your loved one is the fact that you know each other’s schedules. You can set up your combined workout times a week or two in advance, and if you need to reschedule, then you won’t have to worry about playing phone tag. Having a set schedule can keep you both on track.

4) Workouts will be much more fun

Everyone loves spending time with their spouse or partner. Usually, that time consists of relaxing in front of the television, cooking meals together, or even having a date night. A combined martial arts workout can be just another thing that the two of you do together. You’ll have plenty of fun together. When both of you enjoy spending time on the sparring floor together, your relationship – and your martial arts skills – will grow stronger.

There are four clear benefits to working out with your loved one, plus some additional ones not covered here in detail. Your martial arts skills will improve since you will look forward to your practices. You’ll also have more fun while doing so, and nothing makes a workout better than this. Between the additional motivation, the set times, and many other benefits, you’ll become a better martial artist in no time.
