How often should we attend classes?
At most gyms once you sign up you are kind of just on your own. At Scranton MMA we watch over our new students with a very careful eye. We discuss your goals and what is the best way for you to achieve them. We take into account a lot of factors like your schedule and your fitness level and work on a plan that will allow you to reach your goals.
Most new students with no prior martial arts background do best training twice per week. We suggest a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday routine to get started. We have seen the most success for our members when we are able to set up this time of training routine for new members.
Many members for various reasons continue to train twice per week for a very long time. While others increase the amount of training sessions per week to 3, 4, 5 or even more sessions per week. Some remain at 2x per week because of their hectic schedule or because they have other hobbies they enjoy. While other members increase their training time to help them reach goals like weight loss, entering a competition, or because they end up really enjoying training and want to train as much as possible.
The bottom line is that we have to work together and figure out what is going to be the best and most enjoyable schedule for you. Luckily we are able to accommodate brand new beginners, recreational martial artists and people who want to completely commit themselves to training.
