Though normal boxing combines a total-body workout with the pleasure of being repeatedly punched in the head, kickboxing typically combines rope jumping, shadowboxing, and pummeling heavy bags until they cry uncle. Kick your fitness routine into high gear with today's Groupon: for $19, you get one month of unlimited kickboxing classes at Memphis Fitness Kickboxing, located inside Memphis Judo & Jiu-Jitsu (up to a $69 value).
Memphis Fitness Kickboxing's instructors impart skills and techniques for punches, kicks, and resistance-training basics during more than 30 weekly classes for students aged 13 and older. Guided by one of four seasoned fighters, participants of all skill and experience levels build speed and stamina as they jab, hook, knee, and rap-battle a 200-pound bag over the course of 45–60 minutes. In addition to melting 600–1,000 calories an hour with muay thai–inspired round kicks and Western boxing drills, students cultivate strong, flexible cores with yoga poses and abdominal exercises. Dumbbells, resistance bands, and weighted balls fortify the remaining muscle groups, rendering easy everyday tasks such as lifting grocery bags and shot-putting trash bags.
Though Memphis Fitness Kickboxing sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
