iLoveKickboxing has announced the opening of another franchise located at 431 N Escondido Blvd., Escondido.
Based on the successful nationwide model, iLoveKickboxing incorporates the workouts of professional fighters, while making them accessible and fun to the anyone looking to lose weight and get in shape. This location is one of 180 plus studios across the United States, Canada and Peru, and by 2018, that number is expected to grow to over 600.
In the classes, members gear up with authentic boxing gloves and perform genuine conditioning drills and kickboxing techniques on real heavy bags.
Passionate instructors motivate and encourage participants to “go the extra mile” to get stellar results. ILKB is structured for any age or fitness level, and offers a complete body workout in just 60 minutes. In addition to burning an average of between 450 and 800 calories per class (depending on size/gender of the person and how hard they are pushing themselves), members also love the feeling of empowerment and stress-relief that organically occurs along the way.
Another draw to the program is iLoveKickboxing ’s culture, which is a more personalized experience than traditional big box gyms. Instructors know member’s names, where they are with their journey and how to keep them accountable to reach their fitness goals. Members also follow and hear from their instructors and other members on social media, so there is a powerful feeling of camaraderie both in the gym, and when they leave it too.
“I am so excited to share iLoveKickboxing with the community,” said owner Bert Gordon, who was semi-retired from a career in the electronic technology industry, and was ready for a big change. But what started out to be a business decision has now brought more than just financial rewards to Gordon. “Every time that I am in the studio, I am amazed at the positive changes, both physically and mentally, that our members are experiencing. It is very gratifying to know that the studio is helping local residents improve their health and allowing them to reach the level of fitness that they have always wanted to achieve,” he added.
“We are thrilled to be growing our footprint in California and in particular the community of Escondido,” said CEO Michael Parrella. “In addition to assisting members transform their lives through fitness, we’re eager to show residents how iLoveKickboxing gives back to the entire community by offering residents fun jobs and career paths, and by donating funds to local charities through our ongoing fundraising efforts.”
