Jeff Delgado, owner of Chicago Kick Box, has recently joined a new fitness facility called My Body located in Northfield, Illinois. Delgado began Chicago Kick Box in 2003 to empower women in the art of self-defense and fitness. His passion for starting the company was born out of tragic exposure to domestic violence in his own home and the rough neighborhoods for which he grew up in. He turned to martial arts training as a way to protect himself and provide personal recreation. As he trained and developed his skills, he became proficient in a wide variety of specialized martial arts uncommon to most people.
In his teens, he dedicated himself to mastery of boxing principles with expert instruction from boxers trained in combat training methods. Later as he entered his early twenties, Delgado turned his training to martial arts. Mastering the art of Jung Do Moo Sool, a martial art from Korea, was one of Mr. Delgado’s first achievements. He set diligent goals and worked three hours a day, seven days a week for five years to master this difficult self defense skill. For most people ten years is usually the time frame necessary for mastery in Jung Do Moo Sool.
When Delgado began to train clients in self-defense and fitness methods, he began to incorporate kettle bell training. To aid his clients, he received specialized training from some of the most notable agencies in the industry including the World Kettlebell Club and International Kettlebell Fitness Federation. Delgado has found incorporating kettlebell training with self-defense and other methods provides a more realistic functional approach to fitness. One of his goals is always to bring the gym floor work to everyday life. He takes time to meet with clients and determine what they are looking for and then tailors his approach to meet their goals.
For his personal fitness, Delgado trains personally 5 days a week and usually trains with every client. Therefore, he is extremely fit and flexible for a man who is in late 30’s. Moreover, Delgado participates every year in the Men’s Health Urbanathlon, a rigorous fitness course designed to test the total fitness of an athlete.
Hundreds of woman have been empowered to learn life saving self defense methods using Delgado's proven techniques. Clients receive specialized attention on an individual basis or can learn self defense skills in a class setting.
Delgado is available to train in the North Shore at My Body Fitness in Northfield and is available by phone or email. Chicago Kick Box - firstname.lastname@example.org phone: 773-307-7055
