I’ve been kickboxing for about 4 years and I really enjoy it. It’s a really great way to keep your fitness up that isn’t repetitive and boring. It’s also really great because it’s not only for people who are experienced, but for just beginners. I would recommend it to everyone.
As a mom and a neuroscientist I am always looking for ways to get my kids’ bodies and brains active. Kickboxing does both. It engages both sides of the brain, develops focus and makes kids physically stronger. It isn’t just about activity though – kickboxing gives the kids confidence, self-awareness and a sense of accomplishment. A lot of this has to do with the positive environment that Mike Croteau provides. He makes every single child feel special, like they are the center of attention and that they can do anything. He has the skill of an elite athlete with the heart of an angel. He has a special way of encouraging kids to be the best they can be while having a great time doing it. Thanks Kickboxing. Thanks Mike!
The adult classes at Creed Martial Arts are excellent! They were very well organised and they gave me everything I was seeking – a great physical workout, in a fun/friendly atmosphere, all while learning a new skill. I would definitely recommend them.
Mike Croteau is a true martial artist. His technical kickboxing abilities are exceeded only by his humbleness and eagerness to pass on his vast knowledge and experience to his students. To compliment his teaching, Mike has added a couple of very knowledgeable instructors that develop both technique and fitness. Classes are well-run, class time is used effectively and students are pushed to their respective limits. Students of all experience and fitness levels can benefit from these classes…
I have been doing kickboxing since I was in grade 5. I originally joined just as something fun to do, and a way to get exercise, but it’s become much more than that. Kickboxing classes are for everyone, you don’t need any experience whatsoever, and the classes will cater to your needs. Recently I have been taking kickboxing more seriously, and the classes have become more advanced and, I have got more personal attention and training by Mike. I love kickboxing because it’s always a unique, intense workout, and tons of fun!
Was a little intimidated to go at first, but once I went I instantly fell in love with the class and the group! It’s such a fun, high intensity class. The exercises are always different, and you get such a good workout! I look forward to going every chance I get! The instructors are amazing!
I have been training at Creed Martial Arts for over a year now I have nothing but positives to say about their programs. Coach Mike’s passion for kickboxing and coaching is evident the moment you walk in the door and the way he coaches makes it easy for everyone from beginners to aspiring fighters to train to their own level. Coach Jamie’s training and conditioning will leave you tired, sore, and begging for more. Each class he comes up with a new and unique circuit that puts the fun in functional training. Have an injury? Feeling weak or like something is off balance? Coach Jamie will take the time to show you how to improve performance and modify exercises so that you can get back to peak performance without the risk of further injuring or aggravating trouble spots.
You will not find a martial arts studio like this one anywhere else. The level of passion and knowledge James and Mike have for the sport and for coaching is something that will keep bringing you back. It has for me and I’m sure it will for you too!
