Tim got involved with Krav Maga because on October 1st, 2012, his birthday, he made a promise to himself to change his lifestyle from the sedentary, fast-food laden, pack of cigarettes a day rut he was in to a more healthy and active lifestyle.
A little after a month into running and lifting, he found himself becoming bored with it like many others that have switch to XKM. Tim was still motivated, but a lack of variety was frustrating. A quick google search brought up Xtreme Krav Maga & Fitness St. Louis and the rest is history. He was accepted into XKM’s Apprentice Instructor program in February 2014 and was Phase A certified in May 2014 and he hasn’t looked back.
“Becoming an instructor has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done, and I love knowing that I’m helping people achieve their fitness and self-defense goals.”
“I joined the 6 Week Fitness Challenge February of 2016, in hopes of getting in better shape for my November wedding. I was very apprehensive to invest since I had been a member at another gym for about 15 years. Even though I have played sports and worked out for the majority of my life, I was scared to be the "new" person. I cannot express enough how happy I am to have committed to the 6 week challenge. It was motivating, informative and fun. Being someone who has always worked out, this program mixed up my whole outlook to fitness and nutrition. I saw results that I haven't seen in years!
I think the most attractive aspect of the challenge (and the gym in general) is all of the one-on-one attentionyou receive. You're taught how to properly exercise, as well as, make modifications to prevent injuries. Since the challenge is designed to teach the basics of Krav Maga, it gives working out a "purpose". Needless to say, since I loved the challenge so much, I became a member of the gym, tested and received my yellow belt.
Results are in!! I completed 6 Week Fitness Challenge. I’m down 13lbs and 11.5 inches. I loved the instructors, they are so dedicated to all of us meeting our goals. I was so excited to sign up after it was over to keep improving and get in better shape.
The paleo meal plan was a life changer, it helped me learn and understand eating clean. It was a challenge for me to step outside of my comfort zone, but so glad I did because the intimidation was gone right away. I train regularly now and have more confidence in myself than ever before. - Shana B.
