Students send fists and feet flying through a blend of martial artistry that includes the jabs and uppercuts of boxing, the tandem combos of kickboxing, and the devastating knee and elbow strikes of muay thai. Fitness classes make use of many of the same exercises, but focus on building strength and endurance through the training rather than mastering technique or making punching bags cry. The gym holds classes five days a week, excluding Fridays and Sundays.<p>
Head instructor Jeff Emmerling—a black belt in freestyle karate—and Joseph Robinson—a personal trainer and a practitioner of all arts martial—throw their stockpile of disciplines into Clubkickbox's ring. The two turn mealy-muscled students into kicking and jabbing dynamos, outfitting fists and feet with power-ups honed over thousands of years by traditions such as muay thai, and Indonesian silat. Sessions engage students with rigorous kickboxing and fitness training that eschews the stuffy, traditional uniforms in favor of comfortable T-shirts and exercise shorts. Students cinch up boxing gloves or forearm-length pads before stepping onto the mats to spar or play the most frustrating game of patty-cake ever while trimming fat, boosting cardio, and leveling up muscle.
