Let’s Kick Some A$$

Kickboxing is my favorite workout ever. There’s something very relaxing about round kicking dents into the punching bag, sweating bullets, and throwing jab-crosses at the bag imagining it as your arch nemesis. Despite it’s therapeutic qualities after a long dreadful day at school, it’s really great for working off anything you may need to.

I go to CKO, it’s a nationwide kickboxing center for all ages. It’s super friendly and welcoming, and best of all, very encouraging. I’ve been kickboxing for a about 3-4 months now, and I definitely see improvement in my physical ability. I can now do a whopping 13 push-ups, 70 sit-ups, and run faster. I can also see and feel my body getting stronger and more toned.
