"My entire family (ages ranging from 8 to 75 years old) takes classes with Antonio, ranging from boxing and JiuJitsu, to Hapkido, to meditation, yoga, and personal wellness coach to Reiki healing. He is a great motivator, very knowledgeable about his subject matter, and adds variety to every class....there is never a dull moment!! We highly recommend Antonio to anyone who is looking for an excellent cardiovascular workout, a trainer with a holistic approach, and a personal wellness coach who settles for nothing but the best! Class times/days are flexible which is a huge plus!"

"I have been taking private sessions with Mary for a few months now, but due to Covid-19 we have recently discontinued the in-person training and moved on to online virtual sessions via Zoom. To be honest, I was hesitating to move on to virtual training since I was not familiar with technology and the concept of online training and so on. However, Mary is such a kind and lovely person which really helps when training remotely at home. She always explains everything clearly, so you can easily understand the necessary know-how and technique of each exercise and get the same benefits as of an in-person session. In addition to that, if I were a little out of place, she would kindly let me know by correcting any misalignments that might occurred throughout our sessions. I look forward to all our sessions with Mary! Highly recommended!"

"I m a female senior citizen of 75 yrs old and have suffered from chronic back pain and weak and stiff muscles. when I met Mary I fell in love with her. Her pleasant and warm disposition attracted me immediately. I liked the idea of her online training sessions, so I don’t have to travel to a gym. She is very patient with me and knows how to keep me motivated to continue exercising. She has changed my life and boost my desire to get better.
Mary is very talented with many years of experience in both Pilates and physical training and she is a beautiful ballet teacher as well! I highly recommend her !"

"For benefit of others, I wanted to write a quick update review. I have been studying with Ron online for several months now and can say that it has been--and continues to be--a joy. I try many things and have many curiosities. Tai Chi was one of them, but under Ron's guidance, my curiosity has deepened substantially. His teaching style is warm, kind, guiding, and filled with depth and wisdom. This combination signifies to me a true master, and I highly recommend anyone interested in Tai Chi to seek his guidance.!"

"Ron has shown me the benefits of Tai Chi and its application to daily living for your health and spirituality. I have tried exercise classes over the years but they bore me. Tai Chi has been a refreshing change and I rarely miss a class unless I have a conflict with business. Ron is gentle, unassuming and the relaxed atmosphere is very enjoyable. My mantra now is "no pain, no pain"."

"I'm a healthcare worker in Alabama who was looking for a way to stay active while stuck with a pretty hectic schedule and in the midst of the pandemic. I am starting to learn Tai Chi as a total beginner, and I was hesitant about online lessons at first. But, luckily, you can really tell that Ron has a lot of experience teaching and is able to tailor the lessons to your level and pace. I also appreciate the fact that the various health benefits of practicing Tai Chi are sometimes highlighted during sessions as well. I am glad I decided to pick up these lessons and look forward to continuing to learn more!"

"I have been working with Ron for over two years now. I originally meet him through a world tai-chi day he had hosted. I saw him perform the Yang 24 form and thought instantly that this was the guy i wanted to learn from. I have never changed that initial opinion. He is the most skilled and knowledgeable instructor ihave ever met and i don't expect that to change either. You will not be disappointed in any lesson you get from him."
