Check-in when you arrive
When you arrive at the gym, check-in at the kiosk on your left-hand side when you enter.
TIPS FOR YOUR FIRST SESSION
Arrive 15-20 mins early. This will give you time to sign in, meet the instructor, put on your hand wraps (if you have them), and stretch.
Bring a water bottle. It's important to stay hydrated while you work out. We also have a water machine that you can use to refill your bottle.
Do your best to follow along, but don't get discouraged if you have trouble keeping up. Kickboxing is a hard martial art to learn, and it's not something that can be mastered overnight. Do your best, but don't worry if you're having trouble.
Eat a light meal or snack 1-2 hours before class. If your blood sugar is too low, you may become dizzy. If you eat right before class, you might not have time to digest and may get nauseous.
Don't be afraid to take a break if you need it. If you ever feel dizzy or nauseous, and feel like you need to take a break, there's no shame is sitting down for a few minutes to recover.
Trust in the process and have fun. Learning kickboxing and getting in shape is a fun and exciting journey. You will get many bumps and bruises (literally) along the way, but it's important to enjoy the process as you learn and grow.
You can either park on the street, or there is Valet parking across the street for $3.
Which class is best for beginners?
We recommend trying out the 7:10pm class for beginners. Most of our classes have one instructor, but our 7:10pm usually has two instructors, so you can get more one-on-one attention. If you can’t make it to the 7:10pm class, we recommend that you come in about 20 minutes early before class starts, and that way the instructor can help teach you the basics before class starts.
What is the class format?
Warm ups (15 mins): jogging, light stretches, and calisthenics (e.g. push-ups and squats).
Kickboxing Combinations (35 mins): Instructor will go over the punching and kicking combinations for the day. Some classes you will be working with a partner, with one partner holding Thai pads (targets) and the other partner hitting, and other classes you will be hitting the heavy bags.
Cool downs (10 mins): Learning how to defend yourself from attacks and core workouts (e.g. sit ups, crunches)
I’ve never done kickboxing before. Can I still join?
Absolutely! With the exception of our 8:10pm Advanced Kickboxing class on Monday and Wednesday, all our kickboxing classes are beginner-friendly.
What should I bring?
If you have your own boxing gloves and handwraps, please feel free to bring those, but if you don’t have gloves or handwraps, we have extra gloves you can borrow, free of charge. Other than that, you just need to wear comfortable workout clothes and bring a bottle of water.
How intense is it?
What if I can't keep up?
You get what you put in. If you are giving it your all and hitting as hard as you can, you are going to get an amazing workout. If you are tired and can't hit very hard, you're not going to get much of a workout. If you're looking for results, we encourage you to go as hard as you can handle, but if you're tired on any given day, you can always coast.
