Your Fitness Goals and Valentines Day


Valentines Day is a great holiday to celebrate your appreciation and affection for the people you love in your life. For some of us hard core fitness enthusiasts, it might just be another day in America where we can pig out on chocolate and wine. For others, it might be a lonely night at the gym.

Whatever the case may be, the successes you create in your personal relationships with those you love in your life can be strengthened if you begin to parallel it with the love you maintain for fitness - a successful relationship requires discipline and focus. To maintain a strong relationship, one needs to avoid the plateau by constantly introducing new challenges. In your workouts as well, it is important to constantly introduce new exercises, new programs, or new environments in your training ground.

Welcome instability; don't avoid challenges like most people do: understand that in order to grow, you can't be a winner if you are complacent. Take a look at what Titan Gym has to offer you - join a class that is outside of your comfort zone and add another dimension to your daily routine.

In the Spotlight

Student: Andy P.

My name is Dr. Andy Park and I am a local chiropractor that is new to the area. My wife and I moved to the Logan Square neighborhood in June and had been searching around for a martial arts gym to be a part of. I have personally practiced tae kwon do, boxing, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu on and off for over the past 15 years and it felt like a good time to explore other martial arts! That’s when I found Titan Gym! I had taken Krav Maga trial classes at other gyms in the past and loved it but it never panned out due to scheduling but having been able to start taking Krav here as well as Savate, a French form of kickboxing, my craving for a solid martial arts gym has been fulfilled! I also appreciate that they teach other disciplines here as well including boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and more! I have started to become a part of the community and everyone has been very welcoming. In the same spirit, to any one who is reading this, I would like to extend an all in first visit at my office for only $45 or schedule an acupuncture visit for only $60! I specialize in functional movement and rehabilitation and am sure I can find a way to help you move and feel better too! To make an appointment, follow this link! www.northcenterhealthcare.com and schedule your first visit online on our website! 

Employee: Niko R.

I came to Titan Gym through the LGBTQ Seminar one year ago. Wanting to be able to defend myself should I come into a situation that requires it was very important to me. Living in the city life can be unpredictable for anyone. Being prepared for any situation is what keeps me coming back at Titan. 
I have been in the massage and holistic healthcare business for 5 years. I have found a fine balance between Sports and deep tissue massage and the use of Reiki along with other energy practices. I take a whole-body approach to treating injuries and general pain. I have worked with seasoned marathoners, body builders, dancers and a myriad of other athletes. While athletes make up the majority of my practice, I have many weekend warriors and office dwellers that I have helped to come to an improved state of wellness. I believe everyone can lead a life that includes less pain. The best way to book with me is at Lincoln Square Massage (lincolnsquaremassage.com). Lincoln Square Massage 1st time client discount is $10 Monday-Friday before 2pm.
