No stranger to kickboxing, I decided to spend my 100th(!) ClassPass class doing what I love – kickboxing. Admittedly, I haven’t gone in so long so I anticipated to be quite winded…and yes, I was! Whoever thinks 3 minutes is not long, try kickboxing for 3 minutes straight. You will want to pass out! What a great way to increase your endurance and strength training!
Class: Class was one hour long, with a series of combos and circuits, to really keep the heart rate up. The first half of class, we did kicks, push kicks, and knees on a bag. Once we completed these combos a series of times, we’d drop to do planks, situps, or some other form of torture 😛 The second half of class was partner work. We teamed up with one person wearing Thai pads, and the other doing a combination with kicks, knees, and punches. I do wish that there was a short instructor led cool down/stretch after class because the class did end abruptly. However, the class was such a good workout I would still come back, despite the lack of cool down.
No pain, no gain: Only a couple of hours after class and I’m already sore in my glutes and upper back/arms.
- Towel service
Parking: Luckily, there is a parking lot attached to the gym; however, it’s small! You can find street parking and a paid lot behind the gym as well.
- Show up early so you can claim your parking spot!
- I may have missed it but I didn’t see a water station, so definitely bring your own water bottle!
- This gym has a plethora of classes available. I took kickboxing but will be trying a Crossfit class soon!
