Name: CKO Kickboxing
Location: Doylestown, PA
Instructor: Kelly – she was great! She told us where to position ourselves at the start of class to make sure we could see her. She walked us through the various punches and kicks before class started, and showed us the proper way to execute so we didn’t hurt ourselves.
Exercise Type: Kickboxing – we want to start by saying, holy hell this is a FANTASTIC way to get out some frustration! Being a working mom, a stay-at-home mom, or hell… a person, there are a ton of stressors that take over our lives from time to time. In any case, take this class to release all of that bad energy. There is nothing more satisfying than using all of your energy to punch and kick this huge bag!
Class started out with some warm-up exercises – stretching, planks, light jogging, and some ab work. We would say this encompassed about 15-20 minutes in the beginning of class. After this, we moved onto the bag. Yes! The fun part! Kelly started us with some variations of jabs, crosses, hooks, and uppers. She would also mix in some kicks – roundhouse kick (which is basically kicking the side of the bag with your shin) and front kick (just as it sounds). We were probably on the bag, doing different variations for about 30 minutes. Let us just say that the time flew by! We ended class the way we started with light jogging, planks, ab work, and stretching.
