    Martial Arts/Boxing

    (4)
    You're getting bored of the same workout routine everyday: Monday, weights then treadmill; Tuesday, weights then treadmill; Wednesday- what do you know? Weights then treadmill. Switch it up and kick up the intensity of your workout with this high-energy boxing class at Midwest Training Center! Start off by learning the foundations of this popular martial art and combat sport. If you put your mind to it, you will increase your strength, speed, and endurance, sharpening your reflexes as you practice a series of offensive and defensive maneuvers. Don't expect your coach to give you a break! You'll be pushed to your physical limits. You will grunt. You will wheeze. And you will unintentionally curse at your coach as you perform every extra set you think you can't do. But at the end of the hour, after you catch your breath, you will feel on top of the world!

    Jiu-Jitsu

    (4)
    If you've ever been in a fight (hopefully not), or seen a fight online or on YouTube (Worldstar, anybody?), the one common denominator is that most have ended up on the ground. Fights aren't like we perceive them to be in our minds: "One hit Knockouts" and "Down goes Frazier!" ... They're more like "Come at me, bro!" followed by a 12 minute series of groundfighting, chokeholds, failed attempts at maneuvering an old wrestling move, a stalemate, and hopefully a celebratory moment of relief that everyone is still alive, and not too badly hurt. Now, it can be said that this happens because most people think they can fight, but have never learned the basic fundamentals, so as a result, it's all a façade. With Midwest Training Center, here's your chance to explore the basic techniques and start knowing how to defend yourself. All it takes is that one step towards the unknown, and before you know it, you'll be a guru offered a job by Dana White. The world is boundless, and so is Jiu-Jitsu. So, why not give it a shot?
