UPDATED: I'VE LOST 12lbs IN THE LAST 6 WEEKS DOING THE ADULTS FITNESS KICKBOXING! This a great place to improve your physical condition. Whether you're starting from a couch potato or an athlete, you will get a fantastic workout. Every workout is different so there's no getting bored here. I particularly enjoy the friendly and non-intimidating environment - everyone encourages each other, no one is left out or left behind, and EVERYONE is treated with respect. They have change rooms, bathrooms, cold water & sports drinks as well as martial arts gear available for purchase. Classes are scheduled 6 days a week and at times that make it convenient for shift workers so there's no excuse to not go! THE KIDS TAEKWONDO CLASSES are a fun place for kids 3yrs+ to burn off energy. Kids are taught various skills in an age appropriate manner. The class schedule is flexible & the option to make up for missed classes is available.

The instructors are fantastic!! They're patient, understanding, illustrate clear expectations and are very active in participating with the students in each class to make sure they learn the techniques safely and properly! Beyond the Martial Arts aspect of the class that we knew we were signing up for, Jason, Mike, Amanda and Josh are great catalysts for 'life skills' within the classes as well with the lessons of friendship, respect, compassion and humor being integrated into the class instruction. The instructors interaction and class participation have all gone above my expectations with our Autistic son and he looks forward to his classes every week!

This place is incredible! Staff is amazing, incredible program run with lots of energy! Our 3 year old started here very nervous and had developed a huge improvement in her self awareness and confidence. They have so much patience for the kids and provide an amazing opportunity for growth for them. It's been great to see her become a part of this amazing community!

Loving our membership package! We get to pick the days that work for us. The price stays the same even when we go to more classes. The staff is so nice and helpful. They are also doing great stuff for Covid as well. I feel so safe sending my son there. Looking forward to much more time spent at Trail Martial Art Studio. UPDATE: We have now been with the Ignite Family for 2 months now, and I can honestly say it is my favourite child programming to date, and we have tried several over the last few years. This crew blows me away, and my son is loving the program and his Instructors. I am so thankful for each and everyone of the Ignite crew, especially during these difficult Covid times. Speaking of Covid, Ignite's procedures are above any I've seen in our Community. I have no concern with sending my son there, which is high praise coming from me. We are extra cautious as both my son and I are Asthmatics and in the high risk category group.

This school offers amazing "ninja classes" that not only teach kids martial arts, but life skillz too! Every kid I see come to class leaves with a smile, a boost to self confidence, and amazing discipline. I'd recommend this school to anyone with kids looking for a fun, structured class.

Heather Salivaras

We have been with Ignite now for 2 years, started with just one son enrolled and waited patiently for our youngest to turn three so he too could be enrolled. It’s an incredible way for our family to learn strategies to overcome challenges, to be playful while still being respectful and most importantly to never, never, never give up! The homework is so much fun and our boys are so motivated to earn their rewards, strips and new belts...they have really come to appreciate what it means to work for something and earn it! What Chad and his team have done for our family we will never forget, so very grateful to have an option of somewhere to go every single day of the week that teaches our boys powerful life skillz. Highly recommend to anyone!!

Our son has been practicing martial arts with the academy for almost a year. He has enjoyed every single class, and his improvement has been incredible. The instructors are very skilled, super enthusiastic, and amazing with the kids. The program is the perfect balance of fun, learning and discipline! They are great at what they do! The building is immaculately maintained and their safety standards are above and beyond. They have done a fantastic job keeping us parents informed, keeping our children engaged, and keeping the program running throughout the challenges presented with Covid! I highly recommend Ignite martial arts! They get our vote for best children’s program in Castlegar!! Their birthday parties are a must try as well!!

I participate in the fitness kickboxing classes at Ignite Martial Arts. The classes are always a great work out, they are fun and held in a very friendly environment. The instructors are very welcoming, they strive to help you push past your personal fitness boundaries and have extensive knowledge when it comes to martial arts/ kickboxing. I highly recommend Ignite Martial Arts for any class, you will not be disappointed!

Susanne Thomas

This program is run by amazing instructors that teach the kids much more than just Martial Arts! My ninjas have been going since the center opened in 2017 and they’ve loved every minute of it. The instructors work with the kids to build confidence, perseverance as well as leadership skills to just name a few.

I've been a student here for about 6 months now, and I was afraid this was going to be an intimidating experience. Wow was it ever not! The staff are really friendly, and all of the other students are supportive of one another. This is a great place to build up some self esteem, burn off some fat, and meet some new friends!

I’m amazed at the progress my child has made in less than a year with her confidence and physical awareness. It’s a great sport and the instructors are awesome with capturing the kids attention and teaching them skills.

4 of my kids are in the martial arts program so far. They have gained knowledge in physical fitness and defense, skills that will trickle into all aspects of their lives, and developed social skills as well. I can't say enough good things about this program and the instructors that run it! The instructors are patient, encouraging, and take the time to work on individual improvements. The kids are always excited to get to their next level of belt testing, and a recent goal I've heard from one of them is that they are determined to get their black belt. A wonderful goal to have! The instructors put on even more, extra activities that the kids love and the whole family can enjoy. Absolutely love Trail Martial Arts!

My daughter (who is 3) has just begun at Trail Martial Arts and I'm already all in! The staff has been so welcoming and patient with my reluctant ninja and have brought her out of her shell. She told me yesterday that "Josh is my best friend!" An amazing place!

Any of these troubles?

By practicing these simple self-defense moves in our fun atmosphere, you will gain a greater sense of empowerment and self-confidence.

This will not be easy, but once you start to see the results, you will begin to get that sexy, empowering feeling back that you have been desiring.

FAQs

Do I need to be in shape before I start SkillzFit?

Short answer; absolutely not! We have members of all health and fitness levels, and our classes are designed to fit around each one of these levels.

The only thing we ask is that you bring your best attitude when you come to one of our classes. If you have the mental framework determined to become physically healthy, that is all we want to see. Our trainers will help you get into the best shape of your life!

Do I need any kickboxing experience?

No, we love teaching new members. There is no better way to gain respect from our community than someone who has the will to join our class without any experience. If you can take that first step, you have already proven to our group that you are a strong-minded individual. We will teach you everything you need to know.

Does the physical training include weights or machines?

Most of the training comes from the natural, isotonic, aerobic, anaerobic, and isometric exercises, although, some weight training may be recommended or used. These exercises help our members with losing weight and toning the whole body; our focus is for you to develop speed, flexibility, and force.

What should I wear or bring?

Sweats and a T-shirt, or yoga attire, work best. You’ll also want to bring a towel and a bottle of water. And of course bring the mental attitude that you’re going to kill this workout!

How often should I attend classes?

We understand how busy your life can be; we would love to see you at least once a week. We believe once a week will be a good start for you to build your overall endurance and capability to implement the basic kickboxing moves.

Once you have built the basic foundation of the Kickboxing moves, we encourage you to then increase the amount of frequency and intensity of your workouts. We want you to go at your own pace, but make sure to challenge yourself to see the best results.
