Gart Properties LLC leases space on Wadsworth and 77th in Arvada adjacent to Panera and Sprouts


Denver, Colorado – October, 2012 –


Ascent Martial Arts and Performance Fitness will open November 5, 2012 between Pridestaff and Children’s Music Academy in the Indian Tree Shopping Center.  Owner and Head Instructor Kris Pilgrim was looking for a location with a strong residential and business demographic on a main thoroughfare.  “My business continues to grow so we needed a larger space and a more convenient location for our customer base,” said Pilgrim.  “By moving to Indian Tree we can double or triple our class offerings and cater to more people interested in high-end martial arts and our unique high-performance fitness programs.”


Pilgrim is a lifelong athlete, certified trainer, and as a 26-time World Champion in Sport Karate, she knows how to train and coach.  Ascent will offer classes in the martial arts including Chuck Norris’ Chun Kuk Do and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, kettlebell training, cardio kickboxing, boot camp, Krav, functional movement, and cage fitness.  Pilgrim’s children got her involved in karate and it grew from there. Her daughter and co-instructor at Ascent, is also a very successful martial artist and athlete. The mother-daughter team offers a hard to find level of professionalism and integrity in the martial arts and fitness industry.
