FightingFit! Warrior Bootcamp Conditioning

Get fit, build confidence, and feel like a warrior with Chicago’s most unique boot camp: FightingFit!

Swordfighting is one of the most effective forms of cross-training available. It combines aerobic and anaerobic exercise with a diverse workout that builds core strength, cardiovascular fitness, hand-eye coordination, balance, and timing; all through practicing a fun and engaging martial art. FightingFit! is a solo training program that combines a great way to build confidence, bust stress, and get in touch with your inner warrior with one of the most exciting tools available: the medieval longsword. Combined with the use of staff weapons, body-weight exercises and “old school” fitness techniques that literally extend back thousands of years, you can now use the tools of the warrior to build endurance, agility, raw power, reaction time, and fluid motion.

Class Structure

Non-contact exercises allow for a personal and internal focus on body mechanics, speed, and strength. Exercises are designed to give you a balanced workout of cardiovascular, muscular, and technical training. All equipment is provided. You need only bring your workout gear, supportive footwear, a water bottle, and a sense of determination! A pair of snug-fitting gloves is recommended but not required.
