We know all too well the feeling of sitting through those long hours of draggy lectures and/or dealing with our least favorite subjects, clock watching and waiting for the day to end. As a student, you probably deal with this a few times a week, maybe even daily.
However, it doesn’t always have to be this way. In fact, we believe that there’s a way to make such days more bearable – you need to have something to look forward to! Whether it’s your CCA or spending time with friends at a nearby café, these things would keep you sane in the dreary moments, and be your motivation to make it through the day.
Want to know what else would keep you sane? Training martial arts! Besides helping you burn those calories from your favorite junk food, did you know that it would also help you feel better after a rough day?
1) Because you’d feel great after training
Whenever you train martial arts, you’ll be able to de-stress because training is a great outlet for you to vent your frustrations and clear your mind. If you haven’t tried hitting some bags after a bad day, we highly recommend you do so! Once you’ve tried it, you’ll totally get what we’re talking about.
Apart from that, training would give you an endorphin rush while reducing stress hormones such as cortisol. As a result, you’d be in a much better mood after your workout, and be able to get a good night’s sleep too!
2) Because there’s never a dull moment with your training buddies
At Evolve MMA, you’ll meet and interact with various people from all walks of life. And the best part is that you’d all be working towards the same thing, which is getting into your greatest shape ever! Because we’re one big, happy family, you can certainly expect these awesome friends to brighten your day and make every training session fun!
3) Because you’ll get to train under inspiring World Champions
It doesn’t matter whether you decide to pick up Muay Thai or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Whatever you choose, you’ll get the opportunity to train under the greatest collection of World Champions in Asia. Besides getting top-notch instruction and learning their signature moves, you’ll also get to talk to them before and after class, and as a result, find out about how they overcame adversity by having a warrior spirit. Psst! You’ll also learn some valuable life lessons that can help you in everyday life!
4) Because you’ll learn how to defend yourself
Picking up martial arts is one of the best things you can do, as you’ll acquire self-defense skills which are essential for real life situations. After all, you never know when you would need to protect yourself or your loved ones! And we believe that it’s better to be safe than sorry, so why not start training!
5) Because you can get into the best shape of your life
Apart from having the ability to defend yourself and your loved ones, martial arts would enable you to get into the best shape ever, inside and out. For starters, you’ll have a nice, toned physique – thanks to all those calories you’d burn in training. What’s more, you’ll also get stronger and tougher, both physically and mentally. We believe this would help you overcome the day to day obstacles you encounter and of course, maximize your potential.
During your martial arts journey at Evolve MMA, you’ll learn to focus on what you have control over – such as improving by 1% everyday, rather than letting other factors that you have no control over bring you down. Remember, greatness is within your reach, whether you’re in the gym or in school. So never let anyone or anything make you feel otherwise.
Are you now convinced that Evolve MMA is the best place to be at after school? Why not make a trip here one of these days and find out for yourself!
