Focus on Spring as a time of new beginnings and resolve to do something you've always wanted to do but never felt you had the time. Maybe it's time to begin taking care of yourself? It's far better to change the way you live, beginning now, instead of waiting for things to get out of control. A daily practice affords you a "time-out" from your everyday routine. This is a gift to yourself, a promise to honor who you are. 
Whether you are interested in a spiritual practice such as yoga, or releasing some steam with high-intensity cardio-busting workouts, we have the right class for you. Titan Gym offers a variety of classes, ranging from six different yoga styles, to self-defense via Krav Maga, Martial Arts, as well as a proprietary fitness class called Fight2Fitness.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT


Instructor Spotlight


Daniel I.

So…I teach both yoga and Krav Maga, quite opposites.  I started yoga in 2009 because my knees were so messed up from running and playing volleyball for several years.  It was amazing to me that after only about 6 months of a regular practice my knees were pain-free when playing volleyball and running again.  After about 3-4 years of practicing, I really enjoyed how I felt during and after practice.  It really calmed me down from my former fiery personality (ok, maybe not so former).  At that point, I decided that I wanted to spread the joy of yoga, so I went through the teacher training and started to teach in 2013.  How did I get to Titan Gym, you ask?  It’s kind of funny…one of my friends mentioned Titan Gym saying that I should join him sometime or “Level Up” as he put it.  So, I went to the website and noticed that there were a couple yoga classes offered throughout the week.  Jokingly, I told my friend, “hey, you should ask the owner if they need anymore yoga teachers” and within 5 minutes I received a facebook message from Daniela asking me to come in and try a couple classes to see if I’m a good fit for the gym.  The rest is history from then.  I remember going to my first Krav Maga class and thinking to myself and even made the comment to Daniela, “I really hope I don’t get my ass kicked”.  I tried out the Krav Maga class followed by the Muay Thai class and absolutely loved both! 

I started with martial arts/self-defense in 2015 in Kenpo Karate, not too long before I learned about Titan Gym.  The reason being because at the time, there seemed to be an increase in crime in the neighborhood where I would go out with my friends…aka boystown.  I didn’t want to be a victim, so I started to learn self-defense.  Having experience now in both Krav Maga and other self-defense systems has given me so much more confidence than I’dever had in probably my entire life.

After a few months of attending Krav Maga classes regularly and once I achieved Level 2, I was asked if I wanted to teach.  To me, the answer was obviously pretty simple, so the Krav Maga teaching journey began, and after about 7 months I was certified by the Krav Alliance to teach, and I’m loving it so far.  What I love about Titan Gym is that it truly feels like a second family to me.  Since I stepped foot into the gym on the first day, not a single time have I ever felt judged by anyone for being gay, which to me was a big deal because prior to starting Krav Maga I’d heard how aggressive it could be, so I just pictured all of these testosterone-high guys beating the crap out of each other.  Instead, it was me beating the crap out of Ashleyann with a hammerfist to the back of the head.  Hahahaha.  I promise I felt slightly bad at the time. Really though, it was a nice surprise where everyone was having fun and was helpful if technique was off or neededimprovement.  Ivo and Daniela, along with all of my fellow instructors of course, are a big part of why the gym is so welcoming and so much like a family.  I couldn’t ask for a better second fam!


Student Spotlight


Shaun K.
“Krav Maga heightens perception and transforms FEAR into something more productive”- Imi Lichtenfeld

My name is Shaun Kravat! Lets decipher this quote for a second. A martial art that effectively heightens our perception to a deeper inner feeling by mentally preparing us for a combative self defense training. This can help us learn to be more aware of our surroundings and to be prepared for the unexpected at any time. Eliminate the FEAR, false evidence appearing real, in our self by capitalizing on true potential and skills to defend in highly dangerous situations.

When I was a young boy my parents enrolled me in a local Taekwondo class that I actively participated in for years. Very quickly I advanced through the system to orange belt status. Unfortunately, the local gym that taught this marital art closed up and i was left without future classes. I stumbled into Titan gym on my 30th Birthday. Thought to my self it was time to get back into classes that created so much excitement and pleasure for me when I was an adolescent. I was referred by a good friend of mine Hasani D., who understood my passion for fitness and knew I wanted to get back into the martial arts world. Titan family has a culture that surrounds me with multiple training techniques to learn, professional guidance from their instructors, real life situational advice,  and an environment that fosters care for their students. These qualities are unmatched to any other gym.
