    From the moment my first class finished I was hooked! The bumping music, the awesome knowledge of the friendly instructors, the encouragement of my fellow classmates, and most important the sweat dripping from my brow! This is one of the best workouts I have had in a long while, and I have played competitive sports for decades now. These classes are empowering, and make me feel like strong, like I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. I can’t say enough about how much I love my ILKB gym in Federal Way, and how happy I am to have found it!

    I was a bit nervous when I signed up for their 3 class special but after my first class, I was hooked! The instructors and staff are super friendly and supportive and so are the members. I felt comfortable from day one. The classes are intense but the more you attend, the more your body gets used to it and what is great is that each instructor has their own style of teaching so you will never get bored with the same routine. The members are so positive and give one another high fives. It is such a great community to be in. Before I joined, I was not doing any form of exercise and had no motivation to work out. I became a member at the end of November 2016 and I have noticed a huge difference in my health, body, strength and outlook. Joining ILoveKickboxing was the best fitness and lifestyle decision I have made in my life.

    This place is great. Its like taking a class at the gym, having a personal instructor, and going at your own pace all rolled into one. You truly feel the support you want/need here.

    I just love this place. This is by far the best work out I have ever had. I always leave this place with a great feeling of accomplishment. The instructors are awesome and make you feel welcomed and like family.

    I’ve found, for the first time in 40-something years of living, an exercise routine I genuinely enjoy. The classes are a fast-moving hour that follows a similar structure each time, but always feels fresh: part calisthenics, part stretching, and a lot of punching and kicking.

    The instructors bring a positive energy that is irresistible and real. They genuinely want to help people feel better, get stronger, do things they couldn’t do. It’s not just the instructors, by the way. You will find that the people in your class are quick to offer encouragement, to celebrate success, and to motivate you when you’re feeling like you just can’t get there.

    I have nothing but good things to say about this place so far. The instructors I have met so far have been great! They are very encouraging. They always make me feel welcome there! The classes are fun, I swear the warm ups are going to kill me LOL but after that it is cake!

    I've been waiting for kickboxing to come to Federal Way. Now that it is here, I haven't been disappointed! This gym is not only clean and provides a very effective workout, but it is also a wonderfully accepting atmosphere to be in. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to get healthier by using a fun, challenging, and family-like gym.

    I started kickboxing not to long ago. My 1st class was amazing. I had a gym membership but never went. These classes make me want to go. The instructors are so nice, welcoming, motivating, and even spent 1:1 time with me to learn techniques during class. Try a few classes out you will be hooked after!

    I heard about ILKB Federal Way from a friend and decided to give it a try. I started attending classes in December. I’ve already noticed a huge difference in my fitness level and weight loss. It is an amazing workout. ILKB is a fun and supportive environment, where you are made to feel like a family. The instructors are great and motivating. I definitely recommend ILKB Federal Way!

    Best Workout Ever! You will have a fun high energy workout guaranteed Every Time! The best hour of my day for sure! You'll work areas you didn't even know could be worked! It's not to crazy but you'll sweat and feel your workout for sure! The staff and members are awesome! There's more than one trainer on the mats to make sure you're doing the routines in a safe manner and helping with any corrections or modifications. The atmosphere there is fun and just a great vibe. The studio is nice and clean.......not a stinky gym!

    I love this place! The staff is so helpful and friendly and just all around amazing. I really dislike the typical repetitive gym experience which makes kickboxing great for me. Its fun, its exciting, and you get an amazing work out. Purchasing the membership was the best decision that I made towards a better, healthy lifestyle.

    The staff are absolutely wonderful, upbeat, and motivating. The classes are perfect for people of all shapes, sizes, and experience. I did not know what I was getting myself into when I signed up for the 5 class web special, and I am so glad I did! After my first class I ended up signing up for more. Even though I am a nurse and in grad school, I am able to get a couple workouts in a week! I recommend this place to anyone!

    “iLoveKickboxing changed my life. The staff are so awesome and motivating!! HELLO SUMMER!

    • 12. Jan 2017

    I took advantage of the web special that they had going on and I was hooked the first day, my boyfriend came to drop me off and to watch and Jim and Debbie gave him a free pair of gloves and allowed him to take the class with me for free. We both loved the class and signed up that day. I love Jim and Debbie and all the instructors, they motivate me and they help me achieve all my goals. Joining ILKB was the best decision me I made. I'm so glad they finally opened a studio close to my house and have night classes so that I could go after I get off work.

    ILoveKickboxing - Federal Way, WA is running a promotion where you get a free pair of purple gloves if you post a review on 17 sites from a list they provide. I believe it is only fair that I disclose that I am participating in this promotion. I’d really like a pair of the purple gloves!

    This is a hard (but VERY) fun, and expensive workout but it is worth it. 100% worth it! In the words of Nicole, if you wake up with a 6 pack of abs, you can thank all the instructors for it. A few years ago, I lost about 30 pounds doing this type of workout (and eating right). Since then, I went back to old eating habits, stopped exercising and moved far away from my old gym. But now I’m back at it, working out at ILoveKickboxing Federal Way. In the past three months that I have been at ILKB, I have already lost a couple pounds, a few inches, and lowered my A1C back within normal range and I couldn’t be happier about that.

    I’m originally from California and I’ve trained at several different gyms, many of them that have classes similar to this one so my review might be a little different than reviews from anyone who is entirely new to this type of workout. This is the first gym that I’ve trained at of this nature where only one (maybe two) of the instructors has actual fighting experience but I’m giving this gym 4 out of 5 stars anyway. I believe all of the instructors here are great and I am enjoying working out with all of them.

    The workout is obviously the best part so in case you haven’t been to this gym, here’s the basic format of the workout: there is a 15 minute warmup where we start by running around the bags and doing various exercises that the instructors call out. There are usually a lot of burpees involved but the instructors all have great attitudes and they usually make it feel more like it’s fun rather than intended to be a punishment—and seriously, there IS a difference. We do some stretching then we do several rounds of combinations on our bags and finally we end by doing partner drills or exercises.

    I would highly recommend that if you are thinking of beginning this type of class and you are a total newbie, you should definitely watch some youtube videos on the basics of kickboxing so you will be a little familiar with the stance and the basic moves: jab, cross, hook, roundhouse kick, switch roundhouse kick and front/push kicks. I would also recommend you watch a youtube video on how to wrap your hands and purchase some hand wraps so you not only know how to use them, but you also have them handy for your first class.

    What I love about this gym is the workout, the instructors and the owners. Everyone is always super nice and the instructors are always nearby so if you have any questions or need help with anything, they are always there. They are also very friendly and helpful before and after class.

    I do have a few minor complaints. I find this gym to be clean overall (the bathrooms are always sparkling!) and they often vacuum the mat between classes, however, they do not wipe down the bags between classes. I also don’t like that once we move the bags to do partner drills, sometimes you go back to just any bag and start striking it.

    Sharing bags is my biggest concern. This is more of a safety concern, not a germ thing. I don’t like to share a bag with anyone and I show up very early so that I can get my own bag, in my preferred area of the mat. In every other gym I have been to, once the bags were full, class was full. You could wait for the next class or do something else (the other gyms I’ve been to have had a treadmill or two and some weights so there was another option if class was full). I can see some people might be ok with sharing bags but I think there should be a limit to how many doubles there are in class and how spread out they are. More and more people are figuring out how to –and trying to—strike the bags so they completely tip over. I’ve seen instructors hit in the face by “rocking” bags while they are walking around.

    If you are left-handed there is no left-handed instruction, so either be ready to learn things the right handed way or my best advice is to come already knowing the basics. I could be wrong but I think I am the first south paw that came to class already set in my stance. I have had frustrating nights in class where I have been told more than once that I am doing the combination wrong and once I was asked if it would be too uncomfortable for me to switch my stance (YES it would be). This is one reason why I mentioned above that I think it is important for people with fighting experience to teach. They recognize south paws, immediately know why we do everything “backwards” and can readily show a combination in either stance :)

    Finally, I have been thinking about how this gym is different from other gyms I have trained at. This is not a complaint, but here are the differences I came up with: we take a (not required) group picture before class that gets posted on facebook (in our private group), sometimes non-posed pictures of us working out go up on facebook, we are encouraged to “check in” on facebook, we have themed DJ nights where we can dress up for the pictures, shoes are not allowed on the mat (including shoes you might only wear at the gym, on a mat), and there are no elbows or knees included in the combinations we do on the bags (ok, maybe the lack of elbows and knees is kind of a complaint).

    If you have made it this far in my review, congratulations! I hope this has been an informative review and I also hope to see you at the gym!

    Since starting ILKB back in October I have lost inches of my waist, legs and arms. My energy is at an all time high and I'm stronger than I've ever been. The instructors and owners at ILKB in Federal Way are fantastic people who make you feel like family all the while pushing you to your limits in a fun environment. ILoveKickBoxing!!!

    THINK again if your saying to yourself I can't to this its more for someone at a more advanced fitness level.... WRONG let me tell you i am a beginner and questioned but I was very curious always wanting to try some kickboxing classes at gyms. I am so GLAD I waited and FOUND this GEM of a place. Made me feel welcomed and gave me motivation to do it solo. Instructors & Members give this atmosphere the BEST I have ever felt or seen anywhere. LOVE my ILKB !!!!!

    I have been a member at ILKB in the past, and was so excited to learn that the Federal Way location would be opening close to where I live. I bought the 5 class web special, and went to my class thinking that I knew what to expect. I was blown away by the amazing staff that they have at this location. In just a few visits the instructors knew my name, and genuinely seemed interested in every person that was attending class. I love that the workouts are challenging and different everyday, and all the members here are so friendly and encouraging. There are a lot of people that attend each class, and I look forward to them adding more class times as they continue to grow. This may be out of your comfort zone, but I would encourage you to just buy the web special and try it out! You’ll be surprised at how much fun you’ll have!

    I did the web special for 5 class and was hooked immediately the class warm up is very intense but the bag work is the most fun and refreshing part of the work out seems I have a lot of frustration that needed to come out, by the fourth class I saw significant results the HIIT work out is just fat shedding abs are ripped and the V is coming in nicely my core is rock solid and I feel stronger than ever. Yes, I got hooked when my 5 classes was up I was a little sad my work outs at the gym was never the same again ILKB ruined it for me I was addicted to kickboxing. The gang here at the Federal Way ILKB is awesome you guys rock Justin, ,Luda, Nichole, Fabi, Abby, Gary , Debbie and Jim much love...
