New year, new you, right? As fitness remains as a top resolution year after year, here are some of my personal favorite workout picks for you to check out to kick off your resolutions that you MAY actually hold yourself accountable to 🙂
Rumble fit a super fun, high-energy kickboxing class that will surely kick your butt! The instructors are motivating and play the best beats and hip hop remixes. Hence, this class is a blast! You get SO into it that it doesn’t feel like a workout. I can go on and on and on about my undying love for Rumble. It’s truly gotten to the point that my body KRAVES Rumble. That’s when you know it’s real.
What sets Rumble apart from other boxing classes and studios is that Rumble consists of a combination of both strength-training circuits and cardio so it’s dynamic and not monotonous. You won’t be punching a bag for 45-minutes here, unless that’s what you’re looking for then you’re better of punching a wall..The floor combinations consist of basic compound moves that consists of weights and a step. The cardio portion utilizes a teardrop-shaped punching bag that’s filled with water, making it significantly lower impact and more enjoyable to hit than traditional bags.
Plus, there are only a whopping of six boxing moves for you to memorize — no advanced technique required. Just yourself and positive energy! You do two rounds of each, alternating between floor and bag, while the instructor leads both. You won’t have to worry about falling behind or awkwardly watching other classmates to get the moves down because the combo punches are projected onto the walls so you can focus on exerting yourself, rather than worrying about memorizing every move. Above all beyond the class itself, the instructors aren’t only super motivating, but super friendly and down-to-earth as well. So what are you waiting for? Go out there and kick some butt!

Pro dancer or not, this class will make you love dancing even more because it truly doesn’t feel like you’re working out. The first time I tried this class, I had so much fun to the point that I bummed when it was over! I swear I broke a sweat not even 5 minutes into the workout from how much I was moving. You realize your hips really don’t lie once you take this class.
