First Fitness

Health and Self Defense Classes

Get Fit!

We Are Back with 10’ Distancing and Zero Contact!

First Fitness has been ministering to the physical, as well as spiritual needs of local families since 1998 at Cross City!! Though the average student is 8 to 12 years old, the class is made up of students from 5 to 65. It is a fun way to get plenty of exercise in an environment that seeks to honor God and teach respect for others. The tenets of CMA are Courtesy, Humility, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control and Indomitable spirit. Students learn fundamentals of self-defense, balance, flexibility, practice, and repetition. We encourage progress through belt promotions, but each student is only in competition with himself to advance. We have sparring nights, optional board breaking, tournaments and special events. If you are looking for a great family activity, you've found it! 

Taekwondo classes meet throughout the week and are available for every age and skill level. If you are looking for a new way to challenge and discipline your body, consider Taekwondo! It is a great and fun way to get in shape and improve strength.

This is a 15 lesson self-defense course based on Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. By completing this class you can earn a Pink Belt from Gracie University, but even more importantly, you will be equipped to defend yourself from physical attack. This is not sport Jiu-jitsu or Taekwondo. It is street self-defense. Not a 2 hour course on escapes and groin kicks. An actual step by step hands on process of stopping a would-be attacker. There is no cost to this, and no special uniforms to wear. There are several free lessons online at that you can watch to help you pick it up quicker, and you can also look for videos on YouTube to see other women who have completed the course.
