“The same as many people, I started the year out with a resolution to begin living a healthier lifestyle through both diet and exercise. I began looking for a fitness class that would challenge me and introduce me to a new health and fitness routine. My sister suggested I join her to a Fitness Kickboxing Class at Cobourg Taekwondo. I enjoyed the high-energy class immediately. Throughout the weeks I began pushing myself harder and surprisingly began alleviating stress through the kickboxing workout. With the added push…I mean help of Jonathan and the other members of the class I was able to achieve a much higher satisfaction with my overall health, body and energy level. Each session is different and you’re always learning something new as Sir incorporates new combinations into the workout. It’s a great class for someone who is interested in an effective workout that will challenge you physically within a positive and encouraging atmosphere.” Kim
“I started at Cobourg Tae Kwon Do because my dad was a member and he thought I would like it so I joined up. The thing I like best is the workout at the beginning and how in shape you can get by going regularly. I also like the self defense moves and combos we are taught. I have achieved a very good state of physical fitness. I think someone else should join because it is lots of fun, the people and the instructors are great and it will get you in great shape.” Alex
