Fort Collins Kickboxing Classes
Kickboxing is a fast-paced cardio group session that uses martial art techniques with high intensity circuit training. Through our kickboxing program you will learn how to properly throw a jab, cross, hook, uppercut, round kick and switch kick to include other techniques.
This adult class is the perfect way to improve cardiorespiratory endurance, strength, stamina, flexibility and body composition. Unlike kickboxing fitness classes at other gyms, Ironside Athletics is designed for the purpose of achieving a full body workout while maintaining and improving technical striking skills to improve injury prevention.
Classes will vary from day to day, however, you can expect to use free weights, kettle bells, resistance bands, 150 lbs punching bags, and other various workout equipment - all of which are provided.
Individuals will need to bring gloves (16 oz gloves are recommended, meanwhile hand wraps are optional), and most importantly, a great workout attitude.

THE IRONSIDE WAY
Each class will be unique, but most will be comprised of these three elements:
During the first 15-20 minutes participants will go through a full body warm-up focusing on static and dynamic movements to improve flexibility, mobility, and durability.
Fallowing the warm-up, participants will go through 20-30 minutes of a timed exercise circuit that will incorporate various exercises that are low impact with light light/moderate weight. In addition, circuits will have striking drills incorporated into them (see below for an example exercise circuit).
TECHNIQUE AND CORE
Fallowing our exercise circuit, there will be 10-15 minutes of work on core strengthening (which may also be incorporated into the cardio circuit) and improve striking technique with various drills.
