5 Elements Martial Arts - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Summer updates – and a FREE Kickboxing class tonight


Join us from 8-9 pm tonight for a free Kickboxing workout!

Just mention you got this email, show up 10 mins early, and let us show you how to get closer to your fitness goals.  

PLUS, hitting a heavy bag is THE BEST FORM OF THERAPY AROUND!

Feeling stressed? Too much on your mind? Kids driving you bonkers this summer?

Then come hit some heavy bags with us tonight!



No matter where you live, or what age you are, knowing WHAT to do, and HOW to get away safe from a bully or attacker is a critical skill.

Join us for these introductory classes in August to get a solid and simple game plan to get away safe.

If you have young kids, school is a month away, and THIS is the way to get them the confidence they hopefully will never need to use against a bully.  Bullying can have lifelong consequences – help them be prepared.

Join me in the 60 Day Summer Sizzler Challenge!

Summertime is the time for sun, fun, and laughter.

It’s also the time for some serious health and fitness!

30 days from today, a group of us are boarding a plane to Ireland to compete at WKU Worlds.  Competing on a World scale is something we love, but is something that requires a considerable effort to be ready, and to come back with some medals and World titles in hand.

This is short notice, I know. You can jump into the Challenge with us anytime and get rapid results and new motivating friendships!

Whether you want to be in Worldclass fighting shape, or you want to be in the best shape of your life, this is the community and challenge for you.

Over the next 60 days you’re going to be at the side of World class fitness trainers, martial artists, and nutritionists.

If you’ve ever felt STUCK in your health goals… this is a proven way to get the results you want. 

You get the workouts to do from home or your gym (workouts that you get maximum results from with the least possible amount of time)

You get the body composition and nutrition analysis that pinpoints where you are and what exact steps are needed to get in the best shape of your life (in 60 days you can lose the weight you want, build the muscles you want, or lean up just like you want… but you need a customized roadmap to do it with maximum efficiency). We also have the amazing nutritionist and supplement expert, Deb Souza, at your side throughout the entire challenge!

You get the support, motivation, daily tips and inspiration that makes THIS 60 day Sizzler the one that DOES work for you!

You get bi-weekly checkins and revised body composition analysis (having a starting point and a goal is necessary, but knowing whats working best for you – or not – is how you achieve and smash your goals once and for all)

The 60 Day Summer Sizzler Challenge gives you all this and more:

  • Body composition and nutritional analysis kickoff (start tonight if you can, or just in anytime – Initial analysis tonight (July 25th) at 7:30 pmbut you can join any time).  You will be given the map and the plan to get your body in the shape you want
  • 2 months membership to train as much as you want at 5 Elements Martial Arts (if you already have a membership at 5 Elements, we have an alternate plan for you that skips the additional 2 months training – or you can just have the 2 months added to your existing membership)
  • You get geared up for some sizzling workouts: Boxing gloves, T-shirt, hand wraps 
  • You get 60 days access to the Ninjagirl Fit online training academy! Can’t make it to a workout at 5 Elements? Sign in to the online Ninjagirl Fit community and get the recipes, fitness tips, and home workouts that make you a lean, mean, fat-burning machine! Renshi Maeghen Cotterill has all the videos and blueprints you can follow or do from home in this online community.
  • You get nutritional guides, supplementation advice for your body and type, and a complete meal plan to get you the results you want
  • You get entered into the Summer Sizzler Challenge CONTEST! We will be choosing the top 3 participants that show the greatest commitments and results (based on goals achieved, results attained, and overall fitness level improvements). Just ONE of the packages being offered: 1st place – $250 Lululemon gift card, 2nd place $175 Lululemon gift card, 3rd place $100 Lululemon gift card.
  • You get PICTURES! On the east day of the challenge (August 24th), you will get professional photographs done to show yourself and the world (if you choose) the results you got! We have a professional fitness photographer coming in to take the pictures you want with the body you love! These can be action shots of a workout, and/or shots of you showing off those chiseled muscles!
  • Bi-weekly checkins at 5 Elements martial arts where we re-do your body composition and measurements to see where you’re at and what needs to be adjusted.
  • You get daily tips, techniques, inspirational videos, and check-ins.
  • PLUS some very cool bonuses and goodies you’re going to LOVE!
