About this pro
I've been training at Sparta Academy for several months now and could not be happier with my experience. The environment crafted by the instructors and trainers in the classes could not be more encouraging or positive. Not only are the instructors and owners remarkably encouraging, you will find the community of students to have the same attitude. There is always someone willing and ready to help if you have any questions. Regardless of your level of experience, either in the Martial Arts or Cross-Training (&lifting), you will never be disappointed with how you will be pushed and encouraged to move past your boundaries and constantly improve. Learning Krav Maga these past few months (bear in mind, I started with absolutely zero experience), has not only improved my fitness immensely, but left me with a surprising amount of confidence that I wasn't expecting as a result of these classes. I would absolutely recommend taking any of the classes offered. I particularly enjoy learning martial arts, as it's a discipline I never imagined I could do but has quickly become a passion of mine. Also, I love attending the morning cross-training classes as I've learned new techniques to increase my strength while always ensuring I'm performing movements correctly and will not injure myself (I've previously had several shoulder surgeries). Large egos are unwelcome, so have no fear if you are very new to any of the disciplines, as you will be welcomed just as much as the most advanced student in the class. I highly recommend Sparta Academy. It's not all serious either, in case you're concerned. It's a community of highly professional, but real people who aren't afraid to joke and laugh in between sets. Everyone is personable and welcoming, and you're certain to get your money's worth.May 18, 2018
