Heard about this place through a friend of mine and thought it's about damn time I did something about my gut. My first training session was awesome! It was extremely tiring and I was winded while even the girls were pretty badass for this "beginner" class. It's cool though. Everyone is helpful, including fellow students and the instructors, and the others are really friendly, cool, and encouraging. I stopped by around 5:00 pm and even the way the kids class was taught amazing. Then I returned at 6:30 for the Thursday night beginner class I mentioned above. They have classes for everything. I even got to see some MMA grapling and stuff in the cage they have set up. Key note: Several of the guys in this gym are pro MMA fighters. Cool! Great prices, great instructors, good for beginners and advanced fighters. They have classes for everyone. HIGHLY recommended you check this place. The best way to experience it (even for a first visit), is to just jump in a session and see for yourself. Rich

I’ve always hated going to the gym, but I knew I needed to be more active and more toned to feel better. However, a person cannot maintain a fitness regime if it’s not fun and enjoyable. Not for long anyways. I began my search for that one fun and enjoyable workout about 6 months ago. I’ve tried everything from aerial yoga to pole dancing, and I did not like anything. That is until I found a Groupon for ILKB and decided to give it a try. I was so pleasantly surprised with their kickboxing classes. They were not only fun for me but such a great outlet on stressful days. I became a member not only because I loved the classes but also because the staff there never pushed me too much yet always cheered me on. They are not just fitness instructors but friends as well. ILKB is as they call it a “family”. Once you try a class, you’ll never want to go to a gym or anywhere else. It’s simply the best.
I never liked exercise. I never felt a runner's high. I didn't get excited about going to gym. However, my teenage metabolism is no longer and I needed to be proactive. I noticed this gym was opening in my hood and I decided I would give it shot. Well it actually took about a year before I signed up. I'm slow but determined :) Anyway, this place changed my life. It's more than exercise. It's a community. A group of people, led by the fearless instructors, pushing each other to be better. Sure the classes are great. It's a full body workout and you will sweat. But the instructors are really who set the tone here. They have managed to create an uplifting environment. Even my non-athletic bones feel like I can be Xena after a class. So cheers to this crew. I'm proud to be a member and look forward to losing another 20lbs!
