How do I know you can improve your health with kickboxing? Because I experienced it firsthand.

Several years ago, I was in the worst shape of my life. I was overweight and listless, and if I sat on the floor, I struggled to get to my feet without assistance. But then I started kickboxing, and immediately found it a major improvement over previous exercise routines.

Kickboxing requires stamina, but without the stress of running as many miles or even lifting weights. All you need are your own body weight (or minimal gear) and some space to move around, which is easy for apartments and condos, or a kickboxing studio like the one in Seekonk, Massachusetts.

Here is how I got started kickboxing. One day I was waiting in line in the local Taco Bell drive-thru when I saw a sign for a kickboxing studio. The sign showed a picture of an amazing set of abs and obliques along with a message stating you could lose pounds of ugly fat during a kickboxing workout.

Who doesn't want to lose pounds of ugly fat?

Although I wasn't immediately sold, I was eventually sold. I called the ilovekickboxing studio located at 20 Commerce Way, Seekonk, Massachusetts, and I spoke with a very nice kickboxing instructor. She assured me that I could do the workout, and they would do everything they could to help me get into the best shape of my life.

Over the next one hundred days, I attended one hundred classes. It was no easy feat since they didn't hold kickboxing classes on Sundays. So I had to attend back-to-back classes on Saturday mornings just to meet my self-imposed quota.

Long story short: ilovekickboxing is exactly the workout it claims to be. In exactly a hundred days, I was in the best shape of my life. The classes were great, and I made a lot of friends. That's when I realized that kickboxing was more than just exercise for fitness; it was also socialization and bonding with new companions.

Being able to tell people you're a kickboxer is pretty cool, too.

The ilovekickboxing studio located at 20 Commerce Way, Seekonk, Massachusetts 02771 is owned by Candice Casey of North Providence, Rhode Island. She has owned the business for one year and eleven months, the vast majority of that time has been under a global pandemic. I attended the studio prior to that time.
