Fighter Physique owner Rene Armijo Jr. translates the fighting skills he honed on Oscar De La Hoya’s reality series The Next Great Champ into a brutally effective array of aerobics classes designed to knock out superfluous calories with padded punches and kicks. Fist-foot combinations pound each student’s individual punching bag into a leathery pulp over the course of one-hour Cardio Kickboxing that tones muscles from the legs to upper back. Fighters of all abilities learn to float like butterflies in technique classes such as Boxing 101, which includes one-on-one time with instructors to develop graceful footwork and practice turning doorknobs with gloved hands. Children ages 5–13 can join the fray in a Kidz Combat course that combines basic exercises such as pushups and sit ups with kickboxing, wrestling, and full-contact Mario Kart moves.
A convenient six-day class schedule and a dynamic approach to each workout ensures that students won’t throw in the white towel due to boredom or busy workdays. The punch mitts and bags that line the gym’s workout rooms reassure new students that no violence will be directed toward the humans who enter the door.
"My dad told me, 'Mijo, no matter what the sport, the best athletes are always in tremendous shape!'" René Armijo says on his website when describing how he came to concentrate on fitness. The boxer would always remember these words, forever seeking out superior health and fitness practices as he worked toward building his fighting career. At Fighter Physique, René combines his experience in the ring with his passion for fitness, joining a team of fellow fighters and exercise aficionados to lead students toward diamond-chiseled physiques.
At the brightly lit studio, a forest of red punching bags abounds with instructors guiding all skill levels through proper boxing and kickboxing techniques, infusing workouts with high-intensity calisthenics and aerobic exercises. The staff opens all of their classes to kids as well, encouraging youngsters to leave behind sedentary lives of playing video games and reading their mothers' diaries in order to build the foundations of invaluable lifelong fitness skills.
