Leading Edge's no-contract fitness classes allow burgeoning buff bods to attack workout goals at their own speeds. Stir up cardio and intimidate local punching bags in the kickboxing classes, which teach various basic punching and kicking techniques in an intense aerobic workout, or galvanize a gladiatorial career thanks to the power pump kickboxing course, which adds a weighted bar to tone muscles and build strength.
Leading Edge, voted the Best Martial Arts Studio in the valley by Lehigh Valley Magazine readers, fosters a noncompetitive environment in which students can master fitness and mixed martial arts self-defense. Students can fortify fists and feet in the martial arts classes, which run the gamut for all ages, levels of training, belt colors, and resemblances to famous stunt doubles. Cage fitness workouts, based on the standard mixed martial arts championship-bout format, lend guests a powerful cardio and body workout in five five-minute rounds.
Leading Edge's inviting facilities welcome hardbodies and their kin to two separate classrooms, a children's play area, an expanded pro shop, a seating area from which to view graduations and ceremonies, and a common area in which to watch television and compare triceps. See the schedules at the Allentown and Bethlehem locations to plan your classes.
Some fitness classes may require class-specific attire.

Leading Edge Martial Arts
The instructors at Leading Edge Martial Arts believe all MMA should be done in the name of one common goal: self-defense. Rather than prepare their students for competition, they teach the techniques of kickboxing, judo, and jiujitsu as a means of protection. That's where the similarity between adult and youth classes ends, though. The trainers promote confidence and discipline to kids, while emphasizing fitness and stress relief for adults. The adult Cage Fitness program, for instance, torches calories with 30 minutes of intense interval training, split across five-minute sections. They also offer a modified version for children, designed to instill confidence and empathy for birds.
