It's rare to find a workout that you truly look forward to but thanks to ilovekickboxing, I have found the fit fun I was looking for. Not only is the workout enjoyable, the facility is nice and clean. The trainers are friendly and knowledgeable. Everytime I walk in the door, I feel like I'm part of the group. The best part is the encouragement. High fives all around. Join in the work out, and you'll be high fived as well.
I originally signed up for the 3 classes deal because a friend of mine from back home was super into kickboxing and I figured it was worth checking out. The instructors are all really supportive and try to push you to do the best you can. They aren't overly pushy about it though, they would rather help you modify an exercise to a way that you can do it than you force yourself to do more than you can handle. I'm not generally someone who can know an instructor is looking at me and "slack off," even if I'm trying my best. I was worried that would lead me to overdo it and get injured or very sore. That really isn't an issue with this class though. I'm comfortable enough with the instructors that when I can't do more push ups, I can just hold the plank and not feel bad about it because it's still better than not doing it. Because of this, I'm really seeing improvement in my stretches, as well as my stamina. The kickboxing is also super fun and great for getting rid of some stress. The instructors know all the members names and they really make it feel like a community. The members are also all super supportive to one another. It's a way to meet people I may not otherwise. On top of all that, my clothes fit better. I recommend trying the three class deal and seeing what you think of it. The first class may not be as fun because you'll still be learning the moves and that takes away from the enjoyment a bit, but give it til at least the end of the second class and you'll be able to really have fun with it.
Most terrible gym I've ever been to!!!!! Definitely wouldn't recommend this gym to anyone, nice equipment but not nice or kind staff! It definitely isn't a judge free zone gym, their staff likes to stand around and judge the costumers .Matt Levitt the owner is the rudest of them all!!! Heidi and Vernita , the two women that work at the desk are so rude! They make fun of some of the women customers in the gym .. if their over weight especially! And if you're a woman I definitely wouldn't recommend that you go to this gym, they have a lot of men in this gym who like to harass women... the men like to try and sneak and take pictures of the women's butts when their working out and not paying attention!! Watch yourself!!! Be very careful in this gym!!!! And there's a trainer Named Marcel who works at this gym, I wouldn't recommend him to anyone he likes to harass women he also likes to judge people's weight,by calling them horrible names! Don't be fooled by their kindness!!!!! Their be kind to you at first after they get you in and take your money things change!! HORRIBLE HORRIBLE GYM!!!!! DONT JOIN THEIR GYM!!!!
I have always struggled with staying on an exercise plan that fits me. The basic gym routine was just not cutting it, and I was not getting the progress I was looking for. I found ILKB at Atlantic and Kernan, and I LOVE it. They not only make sure you get a full intense workout, but the owners and instructors care about your progress. They NEVER stop motivating you, and providing you tips that go beyond the mat. They push you to your max, then take the time to provide feedback and guidance. Plus, I have seen more results in just a few months then with any other programs - and I started at a very poor cardio level. I never thought I would enjoy any kind of fitness “class.” I have always been a person who has enjoyed working independently, but I have to say try it once and you will be addicted, like me!!
This place is absolutely amazing!!! It's a full body workout in an hour! If your looking for a completely liberating workout with an awesome staff and members, this place is for you! P.S. Make sure to get a BIG water bottle, you'll need it :-)
I really feel good when I leave that place!!! I love working with everyone!! I've seen a big imprpvement. I also do the gym when I'm not kickboxing.
My favorite place!! I've always struggled with motivating myself to go the gym until I found ILKB in Atlantic. Joining ILKB was one of the best decisions I've ever made for my health, fitness goals and confidence! All body types and ages are welcome! The staff/instructors does an awesome job motivating and providing nutrition tips. They genuinely want to work with you to reach your individuals goals. The facility is very nice and clean and the music is awesome!! The workout is challenging yet oh so worth it!!!! I've only been a member for almost three months and already getting compliments about my weight loss. I love everything about this place and I would absolutely recommend to anyone!!
I had been a long time member of Planet Fitnes. Everything was fine until my financial situation changed and no longer could afford the membership. I called in October to cancel membership and was told I can't do so over the phone, would have to go to the gym to do so between 8 and 5. I work, go to school and I have a 7yr old diabetic child that keeps me more than busy..time is not on my side and I work during those hours. I check my account only to find that planet drafted another payment PLUS LATE FEE and it's 2 days before Christmas. I called first and the lady working that morning was absolutely no help, she refused to give me a number for any manager and then assured me that the manager would be in that afternoon and would have her call or to call back at that time. I called back but the same lady lied and said the manager hadn't made it in. I end up having to go up there after work because I've been given the run around. I get there and a guy named Matt is there and he was absolutely nothing but RUDE and a BULLY. Asking why I signed up for a membership if I couldn't afford it? Saying I never should have signed up for membership going back and forth trying to argue with me. I told the man since money was removed from my account to call it even and terminate my membership to stop the Draft and he had the nerve to say I'd have to come out of pocket with more money to cancel. I flat out said that's not going to happen and asked for a manager. This fool told me no he wasn't calling the manager which was in earlier but didn't return my call, and he deals with this daily and there's nothing I could do. His USELESS coworker came in after the fact just to get security to ask me to leave because they couldn't think of any more insults or lies to tell. The whole time I was there, I never raised my voice or even cursed so to have security called was UNNECESSARY. I will NEVER go to Planet Fitness 103. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE PEOPLE WHO ARE CARELESS, BAD SERVICE AND MANAGEMENT!
Great gym, nice experience. Would most definitely recommend to anyone who needs to workout at anytime of day as well as having a variety of equipment.
I just e mailed to cancel my membership. I joined with silver sneakers. When I went in for the 2nd day, no one would show me how to use any of the equipment. a Man that was there from a higher level in LA Fitness showed me a couple of machines to use right then, but he said that was not part of their job! n You have to pay additional or for a personal trainer to get all of that I guess! What a load of crap!
