Raintree Athletic Club

KenForsytheI started teaching Les Mills BodyCOMBAT (a martial arts based fitness class) at the Pulse and now the Raintree Athletic Club in 2003 at the age of 44 (perhaps a bit late in life). I added a number of the other Les Mills International programs to my teaching repertoire over the years including BodyPUMP, BodySTEP, and CXWORX. I’m currently a certified kickboxing instructor through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America.

Most recently, as I’ve gotten a bit older, I’ve shifted my emphasis to “no impact” training in the form of Tai Chi. I became a certified Tai Chi instructor in 2010 and most recently have developed classes at the Raintree Athletic Club based on Zen philosophy and Tai Chi principles. I refer to these classes as “Zen in the Art of Tai Chi.” These classes are based on the training curriculum of the I Liq Chuan (Zen and Tai Chi) system of which I am a formal member and authorized group leader.

So, I still retain the martial arts based fitness theme that I began with in 2003, but I’ve modified my approach these days to accommodate the fitness needs of maturing adults like myself. It’s still a lot of fun and I still have so much to learn and many challenges to work through. Come try a class!
