Well no doubt a lot of you will be making New Year’s resolutions that include losing weight, getting into shape, improving your health etc. But what methods are you looking into? Are they more hype than their worth or will they actually work? So many methods for losing weight will be advertised after Christmas and New Years that it may bog your mind.

What has been proven does not need hardly any advertisement, because the proof is so visible that it can be seen in everyone that takes part in it whatever it is. But if you live in the Abilene area you can be confident in knowing that here there are plenty of choices for gyms and other workout places where you could lose some weight.

The roads are nice too, build very straight with some long straight stretches, and you could run pretty far in a steady stride. Most if not all of those ways are old and probably do not appeal to most people. Mostly because although today in Abilene the temperature is 82 degrees, it is pretty cold for running and the gym just bulks you up more than help you lose weight.

We all should know that muscle weighs more than fat and so the gym probably isn’t the best choice. Here in the Abilene, Texas area we are fortunate to have some pretty good martial arts schools, but above all them is one place that stands out above the rest. For its family atmosphere, spacious dojang, confident and capable instructors and a deal that no one else offers. How about an entire month for free with a uniform? The name of the school is Abilene Martial Arts Center, in the AMAC they teach a traditional Korean art called Kuk Sool Won.

If there is one thing that has proven itself for powerful weight loss as well as a multitude of other benefits it would have to be martial arts training. We are talking a serious aerobic workout that will burn fat, reduce illness by strengthening your immune system, improve mental focus and clarity, and improve flexibility.

Now the benefits don’t stop there, we could name quite a few more but you get the point. The reason it is a great idea to enroll in a martial arts program if you want to lose the holiday weight is because why not just go for the whole package when you go for losing weight.

If you can lose the weight you want as well as a multitude of other things then you are not only meeting your New Year’s resolution but you are going beyond it. If you are interested in the AMAC and would like to sign up and try a four-week trial with a free uniform you have to go to their website and apply for it. That’s because that offer is only available from online, if you were to go into the school as a walk in you would be offered only a two-week trial and uniform.

So take the extra initiative and head on over to the website and sign up for your trial. Now is a great time because the school will be closing after this Thursday the 23rd for Christmas break and will not be open again till January 3rd 2011. This will give the staff time to look over your email and send you a confirmation and then it will give you time to start some simple stretches so that you will be better prepared for the classes.

First thing you will notice about this martial art school is that the atmosphere inside is very nice, great temperature and the people are very friendly. When you first start training you will find quickly that the instructors are very intent on helping you achieve your goals.

Their master instructor is Phil Sage; he is also a police officer on the Abilene police force, so you know you will be receiving very useful training. If you want to know more about this Kuk Sool Won school please visit their website or contact the school directly, in fact why not just come watch a few classes and see for yourself why AMAC is the best choice for you and your family.
