Since the Wellington Group ladies love all things fitness, we never miss an opportunity to check out a new workout class around town. Our latest review comes from one of our interns, Kat Schindler, and her awesome experience with Rachel’s Fight Club Class at Pure Austin:
Call me a wildflower, but I’ve never been the type to go to a workout class more than one or two times without getting bored… until now! For the past three months, I’ve been going to Pure Austin’s Fight Club Class on Wednesday evenings and don’t intend to stop any time soon. Everything about this class makes it the perfect midweek workout experience. The instructor, Rachel, is upbeat, positive, fun and extremely fit. She has a rockin’ bod, which is motivation in itself, and always knows exactly what to say and when to say it to encourage me to push myself even harder. It’s hard and it hurts, but it feels so good.
The Fight Club Class workout is cardio and kickboxing combined. Not only will your heart be beating out of your chest, but you can also learn some self-defense moves too. I don’t consider myself an angry person, but when I’m in this class throwing punches towards the mirror, every ounce of anger, annoyance, stress, and worry leaves my body. My favorite part is when we combine all the punches and scream: “Cross, punch, hook, uppercut!” all together. At this point my endorphins are flowing, thighs are burning, and I’m sweating my booty off. Plus, toned arms and abs of steel are included in the package. What’s not to love?
As if all of this isn’t enough to make it the best fitness class ever, the class sometimes features a D.J. to drop the beat as you drop some pounds. Your body will be moving and grooving to the beat of the music and burning all over. Never in my life have I walked out of a class feeling the way I do when I leave Fight Club – energized, uplifted, strong, encouraged, worry-free and happily fit!
