Westminster Health & Fitness Boot Camp Launches New Time Slot

March 30th, 2010

After high demands of incorporating an evening Fitness Boot Camp, The Dojo of Karate and Fitness will launch a new time slot starting in April 2010.

Fitness Boot Camp Instructor and Certified Personal Trainer, Javier Lozano, Jr. is the owner and Chief Instructor of The Dojo of Karate and Fitness. A premier martial arts and fitness school serving residents in the Westminster, Broomfield, and Thornton area.

“Many of the parents at our school have been requesting an evening Fitness Boot Camp, and we were just having trouble fitting it into the schedule” says Javier. “But we made a few adjustments, and were able to find a time slot.”

The new time slot will start on April 13th from 8:00pm to 8:45pm, and take place every Tuesdays and Thursdays for a 4 week session.

Their fitness program is called the Fighting Fit2 Boot Camp Fitness Program (TM), and it has been taking the country by storm.

Founder and National Director, Michael D. Massie is the creator of the F2 Fitness Boot Camp, and has been in the martial arts and fitness industry for over 25 years. He designed this boot camp with the mind-set of getting the best results in a short period of time.

What makes Fighting Fit2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) so different from the others across the Denver Metro area?

Where do we start!

For starters, the F2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) is taught by Javier Lozano, Jr., a former World Champion fighter and Certified Personal Trainer under AFAA. He has a solid understanding of how the muscles work, and what types of exercises will deliver results to help build lean and toned muscles. He has also trained in the martial arts for 20 years and continues to train regularly.

Under his watchful supervision, he coaches and encourages you from the beginning to the end, and takes a passion in helping you meet your fitness goals. Javier also uses an accountability system in all of his boot camps and demands only the best effort from everyone. But still encourages people to have fun.

The next thing that sets the F2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) a notch ahead from other boot camps is their actual program.

They constantly use muscle confusion during every session. Meaning, their exercises are never the same, therefore the body can not adapt and plateau.

“Every time you come to class, we have a new workout” says Javier. “Even though it may be working the same muscle groups, the actual workout is different, and it can get other smaller muscle groups involved. Let’s face it, variety is the spice of life, and exercising is no different.”

Javier has incorporated exercises that use body-weight resistant, medicine balls, resistant bands, kettlebells, and sandbags, just to name a few.

By using all of these training tools, equipment, and more, boot campers never know what the next exercise will be.

They also use interval training during the cardio portion of their workouts. Basically, this involves you performing short bursts of exercises for a short period of time.

The beauty of interval training is that you will continue to burn calories 24-36 hours AFTER your workout.

However, probably the biggest difference that sets the Fighting Fit2 Fitness Boot Camp Program apart from the pack is their unique and powerful nutrition guide.

“Our motto is, ‘you can not out train a bad diet.’ I make sure to tell everyone that joins our boot camp to follow the guide because they will see results within 4 weeks. If they do not follow our nutrition plan, they will not see the results that others have experienced” says Javier.

The best part, they do not charge extra for the nutrition plan. This is apart of your membership when training in the F2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM)

Are you curious to see how great the Fighting Fit2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) really is?

Javier allows everyone to try 1 free class before enrolling in a 4 week session. However, he highly recommends you signup for 3 sessions, or 12 weeks in order to get the results you desire.

Fitness Goals – Is Your Goal Measurable?

March 1st, 2010

Believe it or not, this is a common mistake by many goal setters.

Making your goal Measurable is quite important because this is what will continue to drive you in achieving your goals.  It’s basically your motor.  If you see progress, you will continue to push.

A great way to see if your goal is Measurable is to ask yourself these questions: How much? How many? How will I know when it is accomplished?

That way, you can see progress.

For instance, you can measure weight lose by pounds using a scale or a tape measure around the waist.

Whatever the case is, measure it!

The Dojo of Karate always Measures your goals.  Most people join our Fitness Boot Camp because they want to lose weight, get in shape, feet better, and just have more confidence in themselves.

Well, Boot Campers are always given goals by measuring their progress through Physical Fitness Training Days, taking measurements of their body, and calculating weight and body composition.  From there, you are able to establish reasonable and measurable goals because you are given a baseline.

Plus, all of our Boot Camps are put on a nutritional plan that is designed to help you meet your measurable goals.  Our motto is:

You Can’t Out Train A Bad Diet

The Dojo of Karate offers fitness and exercise classes to residents of Broomfield, Westminster, Thornton, Erie, and Denver.

If getting fit again is a goal of yours, please contact The Dojo of Karate at: 303.920.4500 or email us at: [email protected]

Until Next Time!


Broomfield Adult Self-Defense, part 2

February 19th, 2010

Last time we talked how The Dojo of Karate’s Adult Self-Defense program can give you the necessary confidence in order to protect yourself in practically any given situation.

Now, we move on to a different topic.

Self-Defense Black Belt Program Will Increase Your Fitness & Conditioning

We get this all the time…

“I want to learn real self-defense, but also get a great workout so I can increase fitness & conditioning.”


“Staying physically active is really important to me, so doing activities as a cross-training exercise would be ideal.”

“Well, you’ve come to the right!” is what we typically reply with.

See, in our Self Defense Black Belt Program, you will not only learn reality based self protection moves, techniques, and training, but also increase your fitness level.  It’s inevitable…

When you begin to learn a certain series of attacking moves and strikes, we than increase the intensity when you work on a free standing bag, or focus mitts.  This not only trains you to go hard, but also to push yourself because in every self-defense situation, you will have to fight harder.

In addition, we do “burnout” during each class.  This basically requires you to execute a certain drill as fast and hard as you can for small bursts of time.  This will really increase you conditioning.

Finally, all Adult Self-Defense students have free, full access, to our Fitness KickBoxing to compliment their training and practice certain techniques they use in their self-defense class.

So what are you waiting for?

Join the Self-Defense Black Belt Program and build a better you!  We are servicing residents in the Broomfield, Westminster, and Thornton area, so it’s an easy drive from Denver or Boulder.

Call 303.920.4500 or email us at: [email protected] to setup an appointment.

BREAKING NEWS — The Dojo of Karate on Fox 31 Good Day Colorado

January 27th, 2010

And that’s no typo either!

The Dojo of Karate was fortunate enough to be on Fox 31 Good Day Colorado and Channel 2 Day Break: On The Deuce with Dan Daru.

Master Instructor Javier Lozano, Jr. informed the news station that this Saturday, January 30th from 11am to 1pm The Dojo of Karate will be hosting a Board Breaking Seminar for students of the school and families in the community that are NOT members, but would like to try it. As mentioned, there is no experience necessary to learn how to break a wooden board when using a martial arts technique.

The Dojo of Karate had about 20 students show up at 5:45am and participate in this Martial Arts demonstration on live television from 6am to about 8am, with many of them breaking the boards in a live action shot. We have no idea how they had so much energy that early, but we greatly appreciate their efforts for working hard and having fun.

Mr. Dan Daru was also a pleasure to work with the entire time, making the kids feel welcomed and empowered by getting them involved in conversations, yelling, and just letting kids be kids!

Lastly, we want to say thank you to ALL the parents that showed up bright and early, with a smile… granted it may have been the caffeine, but your commitment to The Dojo has not gone unnoticed.

If you would like to take a look at a video clip from Fox 31 Good Day Colorado, please click on the play button below.

P.S. – Master Instructor Javier Lozano, Jr. will also be on Fox 31 News at 6pm tonight to promote the Board Breaking Seminar this weekend.


Caleb Just Can’t Get Enough Karate

January 16th, 2010

Honestly, Caleb was one of our first students when The Dojo of Karate first opened, and he’s been training just as hard now, as when he started.

He has developed self-confidence, discipline, perseverance, goal setting, strength & flexibility, and many more attributes students gain from training in the Martial Arts.

If you would like your child to get the same results, we highly suggest you enroll them in our Children’s Beginners Karate Program.  We are currently offering an Introductory Karate Package which includes 1 private lesson, 2 group karate classes, and a free uniform for only $24.95.
