In August, I bought a three-class package to an ILoveKickboxing studio that was opening in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago. For $10, I got three kickboxing class and a pair of gloves; you can’t beat that deal! And yet, it’s now February and I just took my first class. What can I say? Life got in the way. …
Overall, I enjoyed my first kickboxing class. Will I go every week? Probably not, but it’s worth incorporating into my fitness routine to tone up and get an amazing workout. I am just not the hollering and interacting type. I prefer more inner-self focused activities like running and yoga. That’s just my introverted self, though. If you love workout out in an interactive setting, kickboxing could be for you. I did, however, sign up for my next class, so my first impression could change. Also, if you’re stressed out and need to hit a punching bag, this could be for you. The studio was even planning an event to tape a picture of your ex (or something you don’t like anymore) onto the punching bag for a class.
How did I feel after class? Everything hurt. (haha!) I was sore, for sure, and the soreness occurred in parts of my body I am not used to being sore. I consider that I success.
