Athleticism is more than leaping over a hurdle and drop-kicking a computer after it beats you in chess. Be a good sport with this Groupon.
$49 for 10 One-Hour Kickboxing Classes ($200 Value)
During each energetic class, students of all levels burn up to 1,200 calories as they punch, jab, and roundhouse kick their way toward firmer physiques. Each class starts with a warm-up, such as a jog around the gym or holding plank poses, before an instructor leads participants through various moves and techniques on a heavy bag. Students must wear gloves during class, which they can purchase from the gym for an additional $20.
Passersby that peer inside the windows of CKO Kickboxing won’t see treadmills, ellipticals, or stairclimbers. Instead, they’ll spot rows of heavy bags lurching backward and sideways from the force of participants’ kicks and right hooks. The kickboxing-focused gym doesn’t need excessive equipment or a catalog full of workout programs—the high-intensity fitness regimen of kickboxing is more than enough to shape up CKO members. Students of all levels reap the system’s multifaceted benefits, burning up to 1,200 calories per class, releasing stress, and developing a six-pack more realistically than drawing on their midsections with a marker.
