U.S. kickboxing champion Christina Rondeau founded her gym to help women develop lasting strength and confidence—earning Rhode Island Monthly’s readers’ pick for best fitness center in 2010. Rondeau’s class schedules are laden with fitness kickboxing sessions, where students strike heavy bags and punch and kick focus mitts, boosting speed and cardio endurance for high-stakes rounds of patty-cake. Some classes also include free-weight training to strengthen the arms, back, and core. Largely staffed by female instructors, Rondeau’s provides a supportive environment that fosters passion for self-defense.
Though Rondeau’s Kickboxing sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Rondeau’s Kickboxing
In 1990, Christina Rondeau fell in love. With martial arts, that is. After earning her black belt and competing in amateur karate and martial arts tournaments all over the United States and Europe, Rondeau decided to go pro. She travelled the globe as a member and coach on the USA WAKO kickboxing team, and went on to win the women's lightweight title. Rondeau continued to feed her athletic hunger with a switch to pro boxing and appeared in numerous print media and television shows, including The Maury Povich Show.
Having achieved fame and glory, Rondeau took on a new fight: she wanted to help women and children defend themselves while gaining indomitable confidence. She has authored books, created instructional DVDs, and opened Rondeau’s Kickboxing. The 24/7 gym garnered Rhode Island Monthly’s readers’ pick for Best Fitness Center in 2010, due in no small part to its empowering blend of fitness and martial-arts-based classes. Rondeau also promotes safety in her community by participating in events geared towards ending violence toward women and girls and teaching local schoolchildren how to defend themselves or pass a math quiz without using weapons. She also coordinated a box-a-thon to help line the shelves of a Rhode Island food bank.
