  • Outdoor Update, July 4th, and Quintin Returns!

    Good morning everyone! We will be able to have semi-permanent outdoor classes at Krav Maga Raleigh starting Wednesday. I say, "semi-permanent," because rain could get in the way, but weather permitting we will have Wednesday 5:30pm fitness and 6:30pm Mixed Level Krav Maga outdoors at the studio and online.
    If you come in person, you won't be on camera, don't worry! I will send more information on the schedule and guidelines for outdoor classes on Tuesday; this email is long enough already. There is no change to the online class schedule.

  • Permanent Outdoor Training, and Fitness Updates

    Happy Monday everyone! One big announcement: Based on the uncertainty of gyms opening, and the questionable safety of training indoors, we are going to invest in constructing a viable outdoor training area at Krav Maga Raleigh. It will take a few weeks, and undoubtedly go through a few versions, but will have a setup with shade, breeze, and outdoor mats, so that we can offer fully-featured fitness and Krav Maga classes for you to take in person. Hang in there just a bit longer while we get it together, and I look forwards to having something fun for you soon! Remember that we are adding variety to the fitness classes by introducing light weights
    and medium weights
    . Light weights are 1-3 ....

  • New Variety in Fitness This Week!

    Good morning everyone! Somehow we're getting cool rainy weather in the middle of June, so it's a great time to stay indoors and work out! After three months of online workouts we have pushed bodyweight workouts as far as we can, and to add some variety we are introducing light weights
    and medium weights
    to some of the fitness classes. Light weights are 1-3 pounds, so you can use cans of soup, water bottles, or light dumbbells. These are weights you would use for high-rep shoulder exercises, or to add resistance to core work. Medium weights would be 10-20 lbs, so a jug of water, backpack with some stuff in it, and naturally actual dumbbells would be fine as well. Think weights you would ....

  • Maybe We'll Open Soon?

    Good morning everyone! We have the standard schedule this week again, and no outdoor classes because it it just too hot now to work out in the sun. There is some legal pressure for gyms to open in NC, and whether or not that's a good idea (remember we're still living through a pandemic) the momentum seems to be heading towards reopening, so it's possible we could have in person classes within a week or two. Stay tuned for updates as always! In the meantime we have our usual slate of excellent online classes. The gym might be closed but the beaches are open, so keep working out to get those abs and glutes showcase-ready! Email ken@kravmagaraleigh if you need the links to class, or our ....

  • Get Sweaty Outdoors!

    Good morning everyone! We have another outdoor fitness class today, and from where I am, it's cool and overcast for the moment, so let's hope that lasts until at least 1:15. This fitness class will be in the "back yard" area at Krav Maga Raleigh, and the building itself will be closed so make sure to use the bathroom before you come, and bring all of the water, clothes, etc that you need for the workout. Today's class is scheduled to use heavy weights, so bring yours if you have it, and if not, I'll grab one from the studio for you. The class will still be on Zoom, so please join us from home or anywhere else you wish to work out. You can also check out this great video on dumbbell ....

  • Schedule This Week

    Good morning everyone. First, thank you to everyone who spent time helping clean up Raleigh yesterday. I saw a few members of the KMR community downtown, and I'm sure there were many others helping there and across the city. The schedule this week will be the same as last week, with class outdoors on Tuesday. It was warm last week and will be warmer tomorrow, but we will manage. I was talking with some KMR members Saturday and we all had the idea of setting up something like those promotional tents you see at health fairs. We could put a few of those behind the studio as a semi-permanent installation, which would give shade and delineate very adequate social distancing space. If anyone ....
