Winning a beauty pageant takes poise, preparation, and a kickboxing talent routine that accidentally knocks out the competition. Be crowned the winner with today's Groupon: for $45, you get five kickboxing and Muay Thai classes at Fitness Fight Camp (a $125 value).
The summer sessions of Fitness Fight Camp launch a kickboxing and Muay Thai fighting attack on the open fields of Central Park, training students with boot-camp calisthenics and fight drills. Fit-friendly fighters will burn 600–800 calories in an hour-long class, starting with a warm-up that includes abdominal exercises, squats, and resistance training. Students then graduate to sparring sessions and diploma sword fights. Reaction drills, pad work, and combination fight drills are easy to follow, transforming everyday citizens into their hyper-athletic, self-defending alter egos. Classes are led by instructors Ben Hernandez, a Brazilian jiujitsu competitor and Laurel Holloway, a personal trainer and active Muay Thai fighter.
Like all fine English tea parties, gloves, wraps, and target mitts are provided by the host, ensuring all fighters are safely outfitted on their journeys toward building strength, endurance, and muscle tone. A towel is recommended but not required, and all attendees should arrive with comfortable workout clothes and water in tow. The schedule lists convenient morning and evening classes.
