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!

iLoveKickboxing South Philly is a really close-knit cardio kickboxing gym that takes strangers, puts them in a room together for an hour and everyone leaves as friends. The sense of community the instructors build, make the workout fun and comfortable. Class starts with a boot camp warm up, then stretches, then intense bag work (with gloves), followed by some partner exercises and a cool down. Parking is usually always available (kiosk) on the block. The gym also hosts a variety of events such as theme nights and DJ nights to mix up the regular routine. I love them!
I was looking for something different when I joined... Boy did I get it!! I've never sweated so much and love how great I feel afterwards, in only an hour you work every muscle!! Everyone there from the amazing staff to the members are super friendly, who encourage and support one another!!!
