A Stronger, Healthier You.
Katharo Training Center is not your traditional karate institute. When you choose to train at Katharo Training Center, you are hiring a team of highly skilled, dedicated coaches determined for helping you in learning Karate.
Prior to moving to group classes, you will complete 5-10 one-on-one or two-on-one personal training sessions that will properly prepare you for the demands of group classes.
Learning movements that are required for improved fitness – movements like squats, snatches and pull-ups – take time, as does improving your mobility, your endurance, your speed and your power.
Improving your fitness is a slow process. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses when they show up at our doors. Some members struggle with mobility, others with stability, others yet come to us two months after having knee surgery and need to be tended with care. And on the other end of the spectrum, some athletes arrive at our door well conditioned with an extensive athletic background.
The point is we all have different needs when we start a new strength and conditioning program. It doesn’t make sense to throw you right into classes before you have properly learned the movements. So at our gym, by the time you move to classes, you’ll have a good understanding of 30-40 movements, and you will know exactly how to scale each movement if you’re not yet able to master everything. This also means that by the time you get to classes you will feel confident and comfortable showing up to hit the workout with the group.
Our physical benchmarks are scores our members must reach on specific movements and workouts. We measure every member’s performance and measure the improvements in different aspects of fitness
Benchmarks are a way to measure your progress so we know when you’re ready for group classes. And once you’re in group classes, benchmarks continue to allow us to assess your development.
On your end, understanding the benchmarks will help you see exactly what we’re looking for, and exactly what level you need to be at your current fitness level
Consequently, our benchmarks also help group classes run smoothly because we know that everyone in attendance is at an appropriate fitness level.
We don’t just offer personal training and group classes. We offer both seasonal and ongoing specialty programs for members who are looking to work on their weaknesses, or for members who just want to mix it up a bit.
We offer following programs:
- Personal Classes
- Nutrition / Diet Coaching
- Basic Gymnastic Skills
- Olympic Weightlifting
Our specialty programs help members tackle their weaknesses, and they simply provide more options for experienced members who want to try something new.
There are many elements that go into making a great facility. From the training components like having enough space and equipment to practical components like free parking -please enter others here- our facility has all the necessary components to help you get fit and stay fit for life.
Imagine having to park a kilometer away from the facility. This is the case for many downtown locations. Inconveniences like parking are enough to deter you from going to the gym at all. We’re a facility for women by women. We’re conveniently located in a retail mall, not a dark warehouse like most other gyms. In short, everything runs more smoothly when things are convenient.
