Fun workout
I've been wanting to go for years, and finally decided to just do it! I suffer from major depression, mental illness, and anxiety, and I thought this may be a good, positive, healthy, fun way to help manage it.
Sometimes, it's hard to take that first step, but from the time I called to make my initial appointment to get all set up, I was excited. I talked to the young lady at the Chesapeake location, and her enthusiasm and bubbliness is infectious. She was very friendly and knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions.
My first class, I walked in and was immediately greeted by name with a smile. We discussed the basics and he asked questions regarding my reasons for coming and goals. He actually seemed very interested in what I was saying, and definitely eased my mind and doubts a little. He took his time with me, and was extremely personable. When class started, he made sure to help me out, and gives alternative exercises as not to overwhelm you.
After day 1, I was hooked! I ended up getting a year membership and now look forward to working out. The instructors are great instructors and seem to really enjoy their jobs. They are all very nice and enthusiastic. They know you by name, and encourage you and push you through.
My body is getting used to moving again, but each day it becomes easier and only gets more fun as you begin to really focus more on your technique and strength. It has helped alleviate some stress and has helped with the anxiety a bit, as you socialize for partner drills.  It is a great release and a way better way to get in shape than the boring old gym.
I attend the morning classes during the week, mostly, so there's usually about 6-12 people there...I've heard the afternoon and evening classes are a bit more crowded. And talk about a judgement free zone...If you are self conscious,  no need to be. Everyone has been very friendly and kind, and each class has all sorts of shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness experience/levels. I never feel weird or out of place.
I would HIGHLY recommend I Love Kickboxing, especially the one in Chesapeake. A little pricey, $145 a month, for a year membership, but well worth it if you are commited and have that fire. I'm not big on working out, but I really look forward to my next class and challenge. There are plenty of classes, and they run an hour, on time. The first 15 minutes are rough, and is the hardest part of class. A quick jog, and some cardio. Then you stretch it out and hit the bags for about a half hour. After that, you partner up for a few exercises before winding down with a little more stretching. It's a full body, well rounded workout, and definitely gives you a feeling of accomplishment and empowerment.
