Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags. Class times and dates vary at McAllen and Edinburg locations.
The Vein Treatment Center’s board-certified doctors, licensed techs, and medical assistants target their complexion-clearing expertise on banishing the spider and varicose veins that blemish clients’ bodies. Patrons kick off visits with a brief initial screening, which helps the highly trained staff identify problematic veins with the aid of a thorough exam, ultrasound scan, and Mr. Monopoly’s all-seeing monocle. Then, the center’s trained staffers dole out a treatment to vanish veins, ranging from heavy-duty endovenous laser therapy to in-office ambulatory phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy, which employs specialized injections and requires no posttreatment downtime or vacations from calf-modeling work.
Whether trainer Joey Rodriguez is staging his boot camps indoors or outdoors, the workouts primarily consist of body-weight exercises.

In addition to Rodriguez's fitness knowledge, clients benefit from his motivational tactics, which include holding exercisers accountable for their weight-loss efforts through biweekly weigh-ins.
