Spinning classes we Like to call Crank

Posted on: May 19th, 2015 by Dan No Comments

The martial academy now has its own purpose made Indoor cycling room with several crank classes per week.

Our room has a superb PA system along with disco lights and hopefully decent taste in music.

Our instructors are reps level 2 qualified indoor Cycling instructors and more importantly they absolutely  love it.

Being a Charity for the people of Thurrock our prices are very low with monthly fees of only £25.00 and access to all of our fitness classes when paying by direct debit. Pay as you go is also available at £5.00 per class.

Pre booking is required for Crank classes as there is a fixed number of bikes. Make sure to bring a bottle of water, a towel and maybe a pair of cycling shorts. Looking forward to seeing you here.

HIIT training NOW at the TMA

Posted on: May 13th, 2015 by Dan No Comments

The Martial Academy are pleased to add HIIT High intensity interval training to our programme.

This type of training isn’t   for everyone as it is intense but if you are already fit, a sports person or Athlete it will drastically improve your V02 Max and give your a resilience that only those who have earned it will understand.

HIT sessions are typically short and at present we offer them on a Saturday evening at 7.00.

Who are these sessions for?   Fighters wanting to drastically improve their gas tank, those trying to shed those last few stubborn pounds and anyone wanting to push their fitness to a higher level.




UFC Fighter Luke`The Bigslow` Barnatt`s TMA visit

Luke the `Bigslow` Barnatt @ the TMA

The Martial Academy and team `Asylum`would like to thank Mr Luke  Barnatt and  Mr Tom Banks for a superb seminar on wrestling that Mr Barnatt put on for our club this Saturday. It was truly a privilege to have such a talented UFC fighter spend so much time with the team and they were truly humbled and are left invigorated and motivated.

It is not widely publicised that the TMA is a not for profit that is there to provide very low cost and high quality  training for those who would not already have  access. Our coaches give their time and expertise as Mr Barnett also did for those fortunate enough to be here.

I am hopeful that this type of engagement that the likes of Mr Barnett and other UFC fighters are doing will highlight the skill and dedication required to make it to the top level of this elite sport and eventually the image of yesteryears pit fighter will be lost to time and that of an Olympian will eventually emerge.

So thank you again Luke for your time and Support

Wishing you the best in life and in the UFC

Daniel H    Team `Asylum` and the TMA

 

 




Crank,Kettle-bells and Functional fitness at the martial Academy

Posted on: April 18th, 2014 by Dan 2 Comments
Fitness, weight loss, well being and taking control of your own health at TMA

Ironically the majority of what we do in TMA is not Martial arts based and is instead geared around, weight management, wellness, health, fitness and vitality. To this end we run classes which are geared to meet these goals.

The Martial Academy offer fitness classes to all fitness levels, these offer the highest value and are a great way to get back to being fit or fit for the first time. As TMA is a registered charity some of these classes are part funded for some groups. We presently run a scheme which helps people with a BMI over 28 to access 12 weeks of free exercise with a reduced membership rate for a year after.

If you want something more challenging why not try our Crank classes.  Best described as 50 minutes of pure sweating. qualified motivated instructors,Loud music, disco lights seriously really good fun. ” That was intense” Hannah King

Kettle bells Classes.

Resistance training is by far the best way to lose fat ( apart from what you put in you mouth of course). An increase in lean muscle mass increases the base metabolic rate which in turn requires extra fuel. Kettle bell training is possibly the most enjoyable method to achieve this. Our classes are run by qualified instructors and you will see from the first session they love teaching these classes as will you.  These classes are suitable for most with just a few medical exceptions.
