This was my frist “fighting” type fitness class. I had heard great things about kickboxing and I thought why not? I love kickboxing has a first-timer special. $20 for your first 3 classes and a pair of free gloves. How could I say no to that?
The first class they really take care of you and make sure you feel comfortable and are having fun. The warm up was KILLER. From burpees to mountain climbers to sit ups and push ups, etc. Then come the actually kickboxing drills. These are FUN! Your first class an instructor will guide you on the right form. The second class less so.
The entire class was a lot of fun and I was extremely sore in places I never was before the next day! Exactly what I was looking for to be honest.
The downside? They were extremely pushy on getting me to sign up for membership after my first class. Even though I said I would like to come again before deciding, they kept asking why not sign up now? To me that was annoying.
In addition, they only do yearly memberships (paid monthly). As I like to change it up in my workouts, this is a commitment I cannot currently make. They are also not on class pass 😦
If you are looking to commit to kickboxing this is a great place that will really get your ass into shape, but if you are hoping to diversify your workouts this may not be the place.
