Killearn Lakes TaeKwonDo – Your Choice for Family Fitness

Welcome! We are a family-oriented fitness academy dedicated to providing the best programs in Tallahassee and the surrounding areas. Because we are locally and family-owned, we foster a sense of family within our academy and community.

We 've been in operation since 2008, doubling our training space, and building our outstanding instructor staff during that time. We 've been around for a long time because we have the fitness expertise that you expect and know how to serve you, our students and the community.

We have two training floors with over 5,000 square feet of training space. You 'll never feel like you 're always bumping into someone else or like you 're working out on top of the person next to you, like other fitness centers.

People choose to train at Killearn Lakes TaeKwonDo Academy because we are a proven product that provides a welcoming, safe, and clean environment. We know those things are important to you, which means they 're equally important to us.

As a business with a big, caring heart, we invest in our community, as well as our students. We are proud business partners with six public schools and support numerous private schools. We also offer scholarships to underprivileged students to train at our TaeKwonDo academy.

A Mix of Classes for You and Your Whole Family

While TaeKwonDo is our main program for all ages, we also offer Jazzercise, Yoga, Pilates and Cage Fitness for our adult members. Don 't worry one bit about whether you 'll fit in because we 're here to tell you, you will.

So…jazz up your workout routine and try Jazzercise, Yoga, Pilates or Cage Fitness. We guarantee you 'll LOVE what it does for your body, mind and spirit!

  • An incredible workout
  • Lose weight, ultra-toned body and good health habits
  • Physically fit and mentally strong
  • More flexible and coordinated

For the adventurous teens who like to run and jump, we offer Parkour training. This is SO FUN, you won 't even know you 're exercising and getting these added bonuses:

  • A challenging full body workout that leaves you in great shape
  • The chance to think on your feet
  • A can-do attitude that leads to greater confidence

And, of course, our signature TaeKwonDo classes for yourself or kiddos that will not only engage and entertain them, but also:

  • Teach them new self-defense skills and develop inner qualities that will make them winners - in class, at home, school… everywhere.
  • Show them how to stand-up for themselves and be confident in any situation – good or bad
  • Provide a ton of fun and good times with all the new friends they 'll make

Whatever your fitness level or interest, we have a program for you and your entire family. Mom can sign up for Yoga while kids can enroll in TaeKwonDo or Parkour. Dad can ground and pound in Cage Fitness while his four year old takes a Lil ' Ninja class.

We have husband/wife and twin sibling instructor teams, as well as parents and children training together. When we say it 's fitness for the whole family, we really mean it!

A Sense of Belonging and Togetherness

Our school 's culture is one of family and community. We encourage all members of the family to train at our academy and have numerous families of three or more that train with us.

In addition, we support our community in a variety of ways. We sponsor Fun Runs, Carnivals and Boosterthon fundraisers at area schools. We have local Relay for Life teams, aid families in need during the holidays and support the local Animal Rescue groups, along with numerous other charities.
