As fitness enthusiasts stroll into Kayo Boxing's gym, they’ll see red heavy bags rocking with the force of kicks and punches, groups of people doing knuckle pushups or jumping rope, and a ring at the back occupied by boxers trading jabs. The scene is welcoming, but intense—and that's exactly how the USA Boxing–certified coaches intend it.
New guests can take advantage of classes intended for nonfighters, including group training sessions that help attendees get fit like a boxer—burning up to 1,000 calories per class. Like fighters, class participants execute footwork and reflex drills, and perfect their hand-eye coordination at the speed bag. For the competitive boxer or kickboxer, the center offers one-on-one training that incorporates modern boxing skills and techniques while building up strength, stamina, and agility. The instructors work with all ages and body types: they train kids by mixing sports conditioning with boxing and kickboxing to instill confidence and discipline while teaching self-defense techniques.
As the name suggests, Dany Holdstein’s Two Worlds Dance & Fitness unites instructors from the realms of dance and exercise to help students meet their health goals. Before founding the studio, Holdstein studied with dance icons Martha Graham and Pearl Lang, taught master classes internationally, and served as an adjunct professor at C.W. Post College. He requires his dance instructors' credentials be no less impressive. Dance teachers include Andre Kisselev, a classically trained ballet dancer who has high-stepped it with Riverdance, and Lancelot Theobald, a former professional football player who has performed at the Metropolitan Opera and developed choreography for the Knicks City Dancers. Theobald's Momz-N-Da-Hood group—a breakdancing crew of mothers over 40—is a spinoff of one of his hip-hop exercise classes, and, as noted by the Long Island Press, has appeared on Good Morning America.
As the artistic director of an eponymous contemporary dance company, Holdstein has equipped his dance and workout studios with the same floating floors and Marley coverings found in professional facilities. The center's walls resound with music from spinning, Zumba, and belly-dancing classes as certified personal trainers help guests navigate the weights and cardio equipment in the gym area. The instructors also lead classes for children and teens, including Broadway-style theater-dance sessions and pointe classes that give kids the ability to overcome roller-coaster height requirements.
