I LOVE Kingsway! A couple years ago, I was 150 lbs. heavier. I decided to take up boxing because I heard it was a good workout. I tried a few gyms here in Brooklyn where I live, but for some reason I couldnt stick with it. I thought it was because I just wasn't ready to get into shape. So a few months later, I decided to give it another attempt and try out a gym in the city near my job. I figured at least I could go after work. Well, I found Kingsway International. The location was convenient because its just a walk away from 34th st and the trains. The first day I worked out, I never felt so much pain; but in a great way. My trainer was beyond social and really took the time out to listen to what my goal was. He didn't just throw me into an intense work out. Instead, he gradually eased me into certain routines that were custom fit to my size. He built up my endurance, strength, as well as boxing skills. I was hooked, and still am! I LOVE working out now, and nothing beats a great boxing routine. I am forever in debt to this gym for getting me so fit!
