Kickboxing: First Class
We’re so excited to have you training with us here at The Cellar Gym! Read on to learn more about what to expect at your first Kickboxing class.
What to bring
All you need for your first Kickboxing class are your boxing gloves and comfortable workout clothes! We also suggest bringing a water bottle to stay hydrated before, during, and after class.
We recommend arriving at the gym 10-15 minutes early for your first class. Visit the front desk to get checked in, and we can help you with anything you need. Your Kickboxing class will meet in the heavy bag area near the front desk.
Your instructor will greet you before the start of class. If it’s your first time, let us know! We are committed to making sure your first Kickboxing experience with us is a great one.
All classes at The Cellar Gym are done barefoot. We don’t recommend wearing socks, as they may cause you to slip and lose your footing on the mats.
Although we don’t require students to wrap their hands, hand wraps can provide a little extra protection for your hands inside your boxing gloves. New to wrapping your hands? Check out this video for a quick tutorial.
At the start of your class time, your instructor will lead a warm-up period that may include light cardio activity, stretching, and body weight movements such as squats or push-ups. Following the warm-up, your instructor will demonstrate a technique or combination for the class to practice on the heavy bag. Each round may incorporate a different technique, or build upon the previous round.
Remember, you can work at a pace and power level that is appropriate for you! Please don’t hesitate to ask questions, or request a modification if needed.
Each of our Kickboxing classes are 45 minutes long. At the end of class, please clean up around your area and wipe down your heavy bag.
After you’ve finished your workout, be sure to eat a nutritious meal or snack and drink plenty of water. We also recommend doing some stretching or foam rolling to reduce soreness and stiffness the day after your workout.
