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 based on each location: Woodinville, Seattle, Gig Harbor, Puyallup and Lacey.
Since 2001, the instructors at Alpha Martial Arts' two Seattle neighborhood locations have been helping people improve their lives through martial arts and fitness. The black-belt martial arts instructors teach kids, teens, and adults martial arts and kenpo karate moves that enhance not only fitness levels and self-defense skills, but also confidence. Those interested in muay thai can learn from world champions, who share their expertise in group classes and private lessons.
On the fitness side, energetic kickboxing classes torch calories, and Alpha's CrossFit coach, who is an active competitor, helps clients quickly tone up through functional-fitness workouts of the day.
A sign hangs over the entrance of MKG Martial Arts International: Leave your ego at the door. It’s the first indication of the group-minded, family-like camaraderie among the students and highly trained instructors, and it's a sentiment that holds true in each of the gym’s three areas of expertise—adult martial arts and kickboxing, cross-training fitness classes, and youth programs for tykes as young as 4. MKG's MAX10 Fitness & Boot Camp program challenges fitness-goers to reach new goals.
Known as MAX, the 4,500-square-foot studio's cross-training classes help students get into shape during boot-camp- and kickboxing-inspired workouts. Sessions, such as Bag Combat or MAX Strength, torch calories and tone muscles while keeping boredom at bay with continuously changing routines and punching bags that explode into butterflies every time they’re hit.
MKG Seattle is a fitness triple threat. First come their martial-arts classes for adults and kids, in which students learn to jump, punch, and kick in styles from muay thai and kickboxing to the Filipino art of kali. Second, an intense MAX10 bootcamp uses martial-arts-inspired moves to build stamina and strength.
Third, MKG Seattle dedicates 3,000 square feet of space to CrossFit, which co-owner Tammy Wilson originally picked up to supplement her Muay Thai training. Here, she and the other CrossFit coaches guide new and seasoned students through each daily-changing workout, adjusting weights and reps to ensure everyone is equally challenged. During any given workout of the day, students may perform functional movements like squatting with weighted barbells, swinging kettlebells, or leaping tall buildings in a single bound. The gym also offers childcare during select hours throughout the week.
