Cardio Kickboxing Kicked My Ass

WOW! I had a blast at my first cardio kickboxing class. My friend belongs to Women's Fitness of Boston so she took me as her guest (thanks Kathy!). It was a blast. There is no way I would have ever made it through that class a year ago. I'm not the most graceful gazelle in the herd so it took me a while to get the moves down but I didn't make too much of a fool of myself. Two days later, my ass and hips are still sore, must have been all those squats, lunges and kicks.

If you live in the Boston area, the gym is running a special trial 3 week membership for $21. I already have my Planet Fitness membership but the don't offer any classes. I figured I can go into the city twice a week for kickboxing and it works out to less than $5 a class. Totally worth it, even on my limited unemployment income.

The instructor was amazing. I can't wait 'til next Tuesday to get my ass kicked again.


  1. Yea, for trying new classes! I haven't done a lunge or squat in years! You'll have to let us know how the classes continue to go. Great job!

  2. Oooh, look at brave you, going to kickboxing classes! A guy at the gym is trying to recruit me to join his kb studio, and part of me would like to, but then there are the $$$. I'll just have to experience it through you. :)

  3. Awesome!! I started a boot camp class last week and I'm STILL sore! Love it!! :) I love kickboxing - you get out lots of stress and aggression and have fun doing it!

  4. ooh, good for you! I'm not sure my joints would even allow for such at thing at this point.
    What a great affirmation to do something you couldn't do a year ago!
    I hope you continue to have fun with it!!

  5. OOOh, this makes me want to try a kick boxing class! My bootcamp usually thoroughly kicks my butt, but a change up might be fun. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Glad to know that kickboxing left you sore, even two days later. I'm taking a new class this weekend, can't wait to try it.
    I love kickboxing, I used to do Billy Blank's Tae Bo at home, is it anything like that?

    I'm now a new follower of your blog, LOVE it!!
    Hope you start posting more often. I'll be back for updates.


  7. Hope you are doing okay! My daughter and I just did a BootCamp class that was a lot like Taebo at our gym - um, it was 65 minutes and you better believe we were sweaty by the end of it!
