BOXING FOR FITNESS CLASS  

Wrap your hands and put on boxing gloves for a fun, full body workout that will have you boxing like a pro. Don’t worry, you don’t get hit – you just get to hit bags and pads under the guidance of a trained professional.

our professional trainer will teach you the proper boxing techniques including the jab, cross, and hook. You’ll follow your trainer through one to three minute fitness rounds designed to provide overall total body strength and endurance challenges that will take your body from flab to fab.  The workouts vary every day but generally end with 15 minutes abdominal, core and strength training using medicine balls and your own body weight for resistance. You choose how hard or light you hit this workout – either way you’re sure to burn calories and have fun.

KICK BOXING BAG CLASS

The kickboxing workout incorporates kicking with punching for a dynamic  exercise routine. Heavy bags are provided as well as wraps and gloves.  This workout begins with a warmup and stretch to prepare your body for kicking and striking the heavy bag.

Once your body is warmed up, your professional kick-boxing instructor will teach you the fundamentals from front kicks to roundhouses to back kicks, plus jab, cross and hook punching techniques. Your legs and arms will tone and strengthen with each punch and kick.

Cardio endurance is challenged with working rest periods. And innovative weight loss exercises incorporate medicine balls and your natural body weight resistance with burpees, leg lifts, yoga planks and more. With each hour-long kickboxing workout, the pounds and inches will melt away fast.

We are not your average boot camp. Most boot camps will place their members in an open field or school gymnasium. Our facility has the equipment needed to give you all the tools for a fun workout.

No need to bring anything. Some of the equipment we have are kettle bells, free weights, benches, steps, sand bags, boxing heavy bags, ropes, mats,  medicine balls, TRX Bands, bosu balls, weighted bars, pull up bars, etc., etc.

Top 10 Benefits of a Group Fitness Class:

1. Never Alone

One of the biggest reasons why working out and losing weight is so incredibly difficult is because it can be a lonely and drawn out process. By eliminating the lonely aspect, a person will be more motivated and more likely to actually complete the necessary work. By being with other people trying to achieve a likeminded goal, it is without question that you are going to work harder than you normally would.

2. Group Energy

There is nothing like the energy you experience when working out with others who are trying to achieve the same goals as you. This is something that is lacking when you are exercising on your own. In a class, you’re able to work out with others in the group, such as in stations, and you get to work out with the whole group, such as doing an exercise together.

3. Accountability

By having someone there to hold you accountable, you will be able to continue your journey when you normally would stray. Everyone goes through episodes in which they lose motivation and/or lose sight of reason on why they are doing something. By having someone there to remind you why you are doing it, you will be held accountable for your actions. This will help avoid the “slump” that everyone goes through.

4. Fun

Group fitness is going to be fun for everyone. It does not matter how bad it hurts, or how much pain you are in. Doing it with friends and/or other people in general, will ultimately make the exercises more fun. You can relate to people that complain about how hard the workouts are. You will also be able to make new friends. It’s also important to have the right fitness trainerwho can incorporate a fun element, yet challenging into the program.

5. Socialize

People often dread working out. By instituting a socialization aspect to your workouts, you may enjoy them, or even look forward to them. This is a great way to make “working out” more fun. We know many people who’ve established friendships through a shared activity.

6. Price

Personal training is ideal for reaching your fitness goals because you have the full attention of a professional guiding you through the exercises. However, if you are trying to lose weight or get into shape on a budget, you are going to want to utilize classes. Because group fitness classes can be taken with a bunch of people, the cost is going to be split amongst the entire group. This can lead to substantial savings as compared to taking a personal training session. Therefore, if you are on a budget, this is a great option.

7. Results

Compared to working out solo, having a fitness instructor guide you and a group encouraging you, you’ll achieve results faster.

8. Competition

You do not have to be a professional athlete to benefit from competitive natures of individuals. It is in human nature to be competitive. This can only help increase your results and make you work harder when working out in groups.

9. Camaraderie

By showing up, going through the challenge of working out together, and trying to achieve a likeminded goal, you will ultimately build a great camaraderie with your fellow classmates.

10. Variation

One of the reasons why you get results through this group workout program is that the exercises are varied. You have an experienced trainer who can draw from a deep knowledge of challenging workouts. Your body is likely to respond, and likely you won’t get bored.
