Testimonial 1 - Anya Z.

“Go. Immediately. Sign up. You won’t be sorry but your fat will be!

I’ve been wanting to try some kind of kickboxing-type class for some time now…” “I finally stopped by for a trial class. OMG. I thought I was in pretty decent shape but boy was I sorely mistaken (literally)! After the trail class I picked myself up off the ground, wiped away the sweat pouring down my face and signed up for the MAX10 5 week course.”

“…a kick butt, super intense, theraputic (yes, theraputic. Punching and kicking the bags after a long day at work does wonders) workout that will get you seeing and feeling the improvement doesn’t seem so bad.

Give it a try. There are trial classes all the time but I warn you; you will be hooked 🙂

Testimonial 2 - Shannon S.

“I am currently enrolled in the 10 week body sculpt challenge, and I love it. I absolutely SUCK at all things gym related. Even as far back as high school, I did better in group classes then on my own as an individual. Maybe its a mob mentality, I dunno.

If youre like me, and you haven’t been able to start and keep a fitness routine, MKG can help, and if anything get you kick started. Or you never know, you might be like me, and end up wanting to sign up for session after session because its the most productive thing you do with your day.

Testimonial 3 - Cindy B.

“How can I thank MKG enough?!!?

This program is indeed a challenge! Five days a week.. sweating and thinking, ‘there’s no way I can do this…’

And then, you do it.

It’s a stellar workout, never boring, plenty of one on one instruction and encouragement. There’s nutrition counseling, modifications for different ablilities, no one is so serious that it isn’t fun.

This is a way to get a serious workout while you feel like you’re just playing!

I’ve done this challenge a couple of times now.. there’s plenty of room to keep growing within it, and every day, I realize I can do more than I ever thought.

How can you thank someone for changing your life? I guess a review and a thank you will have to do!

Testimonial 4 - Tanya G.

“I just completed the 8th week of their 10 week MAX10 Fitness Program and great things are happening… so I’m thinking I need to sign up for another round. I’ve lost 16 lbs and I can do more push-ups and sit-ups than I could at the start. In other great news, I’m off my blood pressure medication, which I’d been on for over 6 years. After staying off medication for 10 days, I just visited my doctor yesterday and my blood pressure was normal and lower than it ever was on medication.

All that I owe to MKG’s MAX10 kick-ass program and their awesome instructors. They come everyday with varied workouts so you don’t get bored but you always walk (maybe crawl or limp) out after a great workout drenched in sweat (at least I always do). I especially love the punching and kicking. I don’t think my life will be quite the same now if I had to stop that and I’m seriously thinking about getting a Wavemaster so I can punch and kick to my heart’s content at home.”

Testimonial 5 - Gretchen Z.

Fun and Effective – the BEST CLASS EVER – “… for the first time in my life I actually enjoy working out. I feel really good (physically and mentally), can see and feel changes in my body, and am disappointed when I have to miss a day.” … “The workouts also support a variety of fitness levels – there are people in the class who are getting into shape for the first time in their lives and people who are really strong and already in great shape. Although more expensive than a gym membership, what you get out of the class far outweighs the cost (plus, unlike a gym, you’ll probably actually go).”

Testimonial 6 - Erica D.

Erica D. – BODY SCULPT FOR ALL, really! – “MKG should stand for Masterful Kinetic Geniuses…this community of MKG’s are so supportive and enthusiastic about you reaching your personal goals, that they have designed a class that allows you to get rid of the stress of your day, shed pounds/body fat, and get in shape, all while having FUN! Never would I have thought to join a studio for Martial Arts…too intimidating for me, a virtual non-athlete, and never would I think that I could work so hard, and never look at the clock. I have loved this class so much, and had such great results, that I recruited my mom! My favorite result is that I can now keep up with my kids when we hike and cross-country ski, and it’s so much more enjoyable!”

Testimonial 7 - Gillian.

In my first 10 week MKG Body Sculpt session I lost 22 pounds (three pant sizes!) My success was from a combination of the 5 day a week program and a commitment to a very strict diet. When I began the program, I couldn’t do a sit up or push up without wanting to throw up! But the increase in my physical strength, stamina and balance was significant after just a few weeks. I was amazed to see definition in my muscles emerge. It is no understatement to say this program changed my life. I love how I look and how I feel. — Gillian, 44

Testimonial 8 - Julie J.

I started the class hoping to lose my grad school stress weight and I told myself if I was going to do this, I need to fully commit to it. But I’m that girl who joins a gym but on the way home from work ends up “feeling exhausted” after the day and drive on home. So I told myself I would turn in the food log to keep myself accountable. My officemate offered to slap my hand any time I went near the candy drawer (which of course is housed in our office for our entire group). More coworkers found out what I was doing and were always checking in about the class and the diet. As the stress levels at work increased, class became a great way to channel all my frustration and stress from work (especially with the instructors in your ear saying “I know you can go faster” and “I know you can hit harder than that.”). Even with all the support though, my biggest motivation was that this was all for me. – Julie J., lost 25 lbs

Midweek Meal

Pumpkin Spice Bread


Pumpkin Spice Bread: What You’ll Need

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar (I like to use 3/4 cup raw cane and 1/4 cup coconut sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 jumbo eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree (I just use a whole can of organic pumpkin *NOT* pumpkin pie mix…although I’m sure that would be equally delicious)
  • 1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (usually has clove, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg)
  • Olive or coconut oil to coat the pan


Note: Preheat oven to 350°F

1. Dry mixture – Lightly spoon flour into a measuring cup and level with a knife.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spices, and salt, mixing with a whisk. This is also where you would add in cocoa powder if you wanted—about a tablespoon or so. I rarely measure extra stuff.

2. Wet mixture – Place sugar and butter in a larger bowl, and beat with a mixer (hard work if you use your hands!) until well blended. Next,add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.Addpumpkin, yogurt, and vanilla; beat until well blended.

3. Combine – Addin the dry mixture bit by bit, mixing throughout the addition. Spoon batter into an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan coated lightly with olive or coconut oil.

4. Add the heat! – Bake at 350°F for 50 minutes toone hour (or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the very center comes out clean).

5. Be patient – Allow to cool in the pan or on a rack. Don’t rush this—you won’t be able to taste the goodness if you melt your tongue off.

6. The extra bit of heaven… – Slice and serve on individual plates while the bread is still warm. Spoon some delicious vanilla ice cream over top, and add another sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice for aroma and presentation.
