ATA Fit is a workout that prepares your body for virtually any physical activity and can be geared toward any age and fitness level. Most other programs focuses on cardiovascular endurance and/or strength, but ATA Fit develops flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, accuracy and balance. The cardiovascular portion of the workout is based on interval training, alternating between shorts bursts of exertion and rest.
Our new teaching method, called 360 Training, is being heralded for its ability to seamlessly blend fitness training into regular Taekwondo class segments. It is made up of functional movements done at high intensity. Each workout has a different set of techniques but the workout can be scaled down to meet individual needs such as lowered weights, reduced reps, or modified push-ups.
There are six parts to the 360 Training; push-ups, sit-ups, lunges, punching, kicking, and a combination of kicks and punches. When a martial artist becomes proficient in these drills, and proficient means being able to perform the drills with quality, not just quantity - the end result will be a a better, faster, healthier martial artist.
