In the Spotlight

Katherine G.

Instructor Spotlight

Katherine is a certified Vinyasa Flow Yoga Instructor and has been practicing yoga for over 5 years.  She likes to create her classes around a theme and guide you through a well-balanced sequence that offers not just the physical benefits of yoga, but the spiritual as well.  She often starts her classes with a quote or reading to help you center yourself and set an intention for your practice.  She believes that focusing on the breath, not just the movements, allows for a more fulfilling experience.  “To me yoga is freedom and peace from the chaos of life.  It gives me release from anxiety and fear.  It has taught me to stay present and not let the past or future control me.  I teach because I want others to discover the amazing benefits of yoga and hopefully it will change their life for the better too.”   

Oliver R.

Student Spotlight

Hi everyone!
My name is Hannah and my 5 y/o son Oliver has been attending Titan Gym's Tiny Titans Krav Maga classes since November of 2017.  We live on the city's Northwest side in Portage Park, and have been raising our family here since 2013.  Our son had tried a few activities as a toddler, but it bothered us that everything we enrolled him in was like play time. We were looking for something with a bit more discipline and structure; something he could develop with and not just age out of. Basically, we wanted him to be in a sport that would teach him body conciousness as well as groom his ability to focus and progress physically and mentally. Oliver was diagnosed with moderate/severe hearing loss when he was 3 years old. He did not speak very much at all, and once we discovered the problem, we were concerned about his developmental delay across the board. Would he make friends? Would he always struggle in school? Will his hearing ever come back? It was a tough time for our family, and I think when you have a child who has some sort of health issues no matter the size of them, it's easy to panic and focus so much of your efforts on the negatives, the positives can get lost along the way. One thing I noticed from an early age was his natural athleticism and at the time that we signed up for Krav classes, I was nervous he was too young and wouldn't be able to follow directions or understand what was going on.  We came across Titan, and I was initially very impressed by their website as well as the variety of instructors and classes. A few calls were made, and after the trial class, we both felt that this could be his niche. Oliver goes to Titan twice a week, and he is a boy who loves his routine.  The success he has had in the program is truly a gift.  To watch Oliver continuously improve in areas he was once lacking and to see his confidence and discipline make positive strides has been such a game changer for us.  
To anyone with hesitation about joining the Titan family, please know that this is just that: a family. The community created Daniela and Ivo is one of passion and dedication. Don't be put off by the fact that the gym is in an affluent area; these folks are as down to earth and genuine as it gets. The classes are quite affordable and the instructors are extremely qualified. They will teach your children respect, honor, integrity, and the value of work ethic. Will they give your child a sucker and a gold medal just for showing up? No. I respect that tremendously, although I realize that is not everyone's cup of tea. I am honored to tell you a little bit about my experience with this establishment, and I am confident that this is just the beginning for them. Thank you for guiding my kid in the direction he has gone, and I am so grateful to be part of the Titan movement!
