Amber – February 2015
I have been to other kickboxing classes in the area but the reason I like coming to IMPACT! best is because it most closely resembles a martial arts class. Other classes have been a more ‘aerobic’ (i.e., kickboxing classes at gyms) or ‘boxing’ style (more punching than kicking) but Erik and the other instructors incorporate a lot of additional moves and self-defense techniques which give a well-rounded workout as well as help build confidence. Additionally, each class is always different so it helps keep things interesting and Erik and the rest of the staff give a personal feel to classes by encouraging people by name, taking extra time with new students to ensure good technique, and providing a fun environment to work out.
I workout because of how it makes me feel – strong, confident and happy – and because when you have a good workout regimen, you are more likely to continue with other healthy choices. When I found out I was pregnant, I got clearance from my doctor to continue kickboxing (with modifications as needed 😉 and now at 7 months, I feel confident that continuing with kickboxing and other classes has helped me have a much easier pregnancy by helping keep me hydrated, encouraging better eating habits, allowing me to sleep well at night, and minimizing a lot of the swelling/aches and pains that I might have otherwise experienced. Plus, after a class at IMPACT! I can often feel my daughter kicking herself and imagine her already learning perfect form!
Samanda – December 2013
When I started taking classes at Impact Kickboxing, I was overweight and out of shape. I knew that I liked the idea of punching something on a regular basis so I was compelled to give it a try. After my first class, I knew this was going to be an important part of my quest to get healthy.
The first few classes gave me a pretty clear idea of where my physical fitness level was – and it could only get better from where I started from. Within the first 5 workouts at Impact, I could feel my endurance and skill level improving. By the time my first month was finished, I could feel the results in the way my clothes fit and my body felt. A side benefit was that my mood was improved as well as it turns out hitting a bag on a regular basis is very therapeutic!
Classes at Impact Kickboxing are fun and something I look forward to – an essential key for me to maintain motivation for an exercise regime. The gym environment is completely welcoming – from the instructors to the members, everyone is encouraging and egos are checked at the door. The supportive environment helped me to keep coming back.
One year later, I have lost over 45 pounds, several dress sizes and my fitness level rivals that of my teenage years. I continue to look forward to every workout I have the opportunity to take advantage of at Impact!
