Punching a bag full of sand is a safer way to make you fit than punching a shark that is well liked by the community. Touch gloves with this Groupon.
$59 for 10 Kickboxing Classes (Up to $250 Value)
Beginners and experienced students alike strike and kick heavy bags during one-hour classes. See the Clinton Hill class schedule or the Carroll Gardens class schedule. Students can bring their own gloves or choose to purchase them at the gym for an additional fee.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
At CKO Kickboxing, combatants wage one-hour battles against an army of heavy bags. The weighted punching bags dangle in two long rows as participants unleash flurries of kicks, punches, knees, and elbows upon them until they agree to personally train them. CKO's instructors emphasize the fitness aspects of kickboxing over a traditional martial-arts education, peppering sessions of punches and kicks with plyometrics and cross training to sculpt and strengthen the entire body. Students of all skill levels are welcome in each class, and beginners are encouraged to progress at their own pace.
