Sharon O. says, "I joined a gym about 5 yrs. ago and I started training with a personal trainer. I was on my way to achieving my goals of losing weight and building muscle. Things were going well for a few years until I tore my rotator cuff about a year ago and my trainer moved out of state. I was in need of a new trainer and also needed direction on how to workout with a injured rotator cuff. I had met Marcus a few years ago at the gym when I took his Alpha class. I was impressed by his teaching of the class and thought he was a very knowledgeable trainer. He was attentive to everyone in the class and his workouts were tough. I thought Marcus might make an excellent trainer for me and decided to give him a try. I was so glad that I did. Marcus has been very good about tailoring an exercise program for a full body workout that always challenges me, but also protects my torn rotator cuff from further damage. He is very good with helping Clients reach their goals even when they have health or injury issues. In the short few months that I have been training with Marcus I have lost 2% body fat and gained 3 lbs. of muscle. I am impressed with his passion for working out and his knowledge of nutrition. In every workout session Marcus always encourages and motivates me to train harder and try new exercises. Marcus inspires me and has helped me so much in working out not only harder, but smarter and eating healthier. I am a much happier person inside and out as I get closer to achieving my goals and I couldn’t have done it without Marcus beside me. " Read more

In addition to the class fee, you'll have extra costs for uniforms, belts, and testing fees. A karate uniform—also called a Gi, karategi, or dogi—costs $60 to $120 on average, while belts cost $5 to $20. Some schools include a gi and belt with your first month's tuition. Testing fees vary by school, but beware of schools that charge more than $20 per test.

Reviews for Palatine karate classes

Recent success stories from people in the Palatine area.
Madden Z.
I started training because I was very self conscious with my fitness abilities, and overall health. I Wanted a personal approach to improving my fitness abilities, and to become better in gym class (4th grade.) I feel that I am a lot stronger since I first started. Not only stronger, but it’s built my self esteem much higher than it was when I began training. I continue to work with Marcus because I feel that I still need more improvement, and I know that this is a good way to do it.
