Fitness kickboxing classes fuse martial-arts moves with resistance bands, medicine balls, and jump ropes to burn calories. Based on principles of cage fighting, cage-fitness classes divide workouts into five five-minute rounds. Rounds are stacked in order of warm-up, upper body, lower body, combo round, and cooldown/core, creating a full-body workout with no contact or martial arts. See a class schedule here.
Premier Martial Arts
The staff at Premier Martial Arts teaches four martial arts disciplines: krav maga, kickboxing, submission grappling, and kali. Krav maga, an Israeli technique, stitches together a tough fabric of self-defense and fighting that teaches how to react and act in a close-combat scenario. During kickboxing, the staff imparts techniques for kicking, punching, kneeing, elbowing in the muay thai tradition, and earring someone to show displeasure with their failure to listen. Submission grappling hones in on how to engage an attacker after being thrown to the ground, which can involve joint locks and submission holds. To round out the menu, the team teaches Kali's methods for protecting against a weapon-wielding attacker and how to use a knife or stick to ward off harm.
This mix allows staff members to blend self-defense and fitness to teach students a versatile skill set. Even after completing a rigorous training program, Premier's instructors are required to complete 40 hours of continuing education every year, ranging in scope from martial arts to nutrition, exercise science, and how to fend off a horse with a shark's head. With this knowledge, they lead students of all experience levels through their system. Instructors also lead cage fitness, which uses five five-minute rounds to test the athlete's entire body.
