“I recently started the cardio kickboxing class. I really enjoy the group class and working with other members working towards similar goals. I am very new to (kick)boxing and am not familiar with the stances and terms used for each punch or kick. After a few group classes I decided to take some private lessons with Coach Jim Baglioni. At the first training session he asked me what I wanted to concentrate on and if I had any injuries. I have shoulder problems so he gave me several substitutions that will workout the same muscle areas without irritating my shoulder. He was very specific in picking out exercises for me to do that would help me in my target areas, as well as learning the skills needed to better participate in the group classes. I am still learning, but I am much more confident in the group classes knowing the names of each basic move and that I am doing it correctly. Since starting the private lessons I can really feel and see a difference!” – Kat S.
