I've only been taking classes from here for approx. four months now, but I've learned so much in that short time. From day 1, everyone makes you feel like family and clearly wants to see you do your absolute best. A great school, full of great people!

Our experience with (Apexx) has been great. My son is learning such great skills and character traits from his instructors. I love how they teach respect and discipline. I can tell that it's making him pay closer attention to adults. And he's setting goal after goal because he wants to be like his instructors. For me, I'm very happy because I'm seeing a lot of growth in him.

My son has only attended for a short amount of time, but already we have seen such an improvement in his behavior and attention span. Everyone here from the staff at the front desk to the class instructors are so nice and helpful!

We really enjoyed our trial experience at WR Martial Arts. I was very impressed with how they interacted with my rowdy 3 year old and have seen a big difference in his behavior at home. My 5 year old also learned A LOT in a very short amount of time. We are giving our kids a chance to check out some different sports but if they decide they want to continue with Taekwondo - we will definitely be coming back here! Great staff and program.

My son had his 9th B-day party here and oh my gosh...so much fun!! The kids loved it! Never a dull moment. Games, food, class and a beautiful sword to cut the cake with. Best part...he keeps the sword! What a great addition to a great day. Great value! My son will remember this party for a long time.

We love it here. It has helped my daughter in so many ways. It has given her so much confidence and higher self esteem. The bonus is learning self defense skills. The staff here love their jobs and really enjoy teaching the kids. It's their passion.

Can I Kickbox If …

Have you ever wondered if kickboxing is right for you? Maybe you’ve heard about what a great workout it is or maybe you’ve been interested in learning self-defense or reducing your stress levels. The truth is there are a lot of GREAT reasons to try fitness kickboxing. Don’t believe us? Head over to our program page to learn more about the benefits and read some testimonials from our incredible Apexx members by clicking here

 

But chances are if you made it to this blog post, you’re not wondering if kickboxing is a good idea. No, you’re probably wondering, “Can I Kickbox???” And to help you answer that question we’re sharing and answering some of our most frequently asked “Can I kickbox if …” questions. Keep ready to find out if this is the workout you’ve been searching for. 

 

Can I kickbox if … I’m trying to lose weight?

Yes! In fact, our fitness kickboxing classes at Apexx provide a fantastic workout for weight loss goals. Believe it or not, throwing down on the bag works your entire body! A simple fist strike or jab isn’t just using the muscles of that one arm, your core, back, and glutes are all working together – just to name a few. This full-body approach combined with fast, powerful movement adds up to some serious calories burned meaning your goal weight could be closer than you think!

 

Can I kickbox if … I have NO idea what a jab, cross, or hook is?

Yes! One of the fun things about taking kickboxing classes as Apexx is that you aren’t just getting a great workout – you’re also learning a new skill and our instructors are there to help you do just that. We have all of our new students schedule their first class so that our instructor team is available to help you out one-on-one for your first workout. They’ll make sure you know all the moves and hang out to assist you with form as well. We know it can be scary to try something new and that’s why we make every effort to ensure you have a BLAST working out with us from day one. 

 

Can I kickbox if … I don’t know anything about martial arts?

Yes! Most of our regular kickboxers here at Apexx have never done formal martial arts training, but you’d never know it from looking at their sidekicks! We will teach you everything you need to know in order to have fun and get results with your fitness kickboxing workout! We’ll even  include some solid self-defense moves!

Additionally, if you’re interested in going on to learn martial arts you’ll find many of the skills and abilities you develop in kickboxing like improved balance, flexibility, and confidence all translate exceeding well to martial arts! Check out our adult martial arts program for more information. 

 

Can I kickbox if … I wear glasses?

Yes! At Apexx we focus on fitness kickboxing rather than sparring. That means that while you’ll have the occasional partner drill, most of your boxing time will be spent on the bag and at no point will you ever have to worry about getting punched in the face. We promise! You may even be able to remove your glasses entirely if that’s most comfortable. Bottom line: if you normally wear them to the gym or for your other workouts – you should be fine for kickboxing as well.

 

Can I kickbox if … I haven’t been working out at all?

Yes! Another great thing about fitness kickboxing is that you have a LOT of control over the intensity of your workout. We’ll provide you a combination of kicks and punches but it’s up to you how fast you want to move and how hard you want to hit. Having a harder time with a particular move? Simply slow it down and find your own flow. Furthermore, our instructors are always moving around the room and are happy to help you adjust a specific move or combination to better fit your skill level making these classes very adaptable to wherever you are with your fitness journey.
