    Going to ILKB has been one of my favorite gym experiences. In a year, I’ve noticed a significant change in my body muscle v. fat composition. I feel healthier and have more energy, which encourages me to eat better and be active in the non-gym aspects of my life. Classes are fun and staff are friendly and constructive. Overall, body-positive, motivating, and awesome space.

    I found this kickboxing place on Groupon and decided to give it a try. I am so happy that I did! I mostly go after work and its always what I look forward to in my day. Right after my first class I signed up to be a member because I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of my weekly routine. Everyone should try it at least once and I'm sure you will love it!

    I was never one to love exercising until I signed up for I love kickboxing on 43rd street. My first class was amazing and the staff was just wonderful. I enjoy every class that I go to and the classes are always different. I would recommend anyone to try it.

    Sign up for their 3 classes and free gloves for $19.99.(Mention Naomi!) I have never felt comfortable signing up for a group workout. My friend encouraged me over and over again to sign up. I was very nervous at first but the instructors there are so motivating! They are not intimidating at all. Everyone is so pleasant! Although they push to work harder, they also allow you to go at your own pace. Everyone is different and there are beginners in every class! If I can do it, trust me you can too! Go sign up now!

    I have been coming to ILKB Midtown for just over a year and its the best decision I could have made for my fitness and health. With consistency you will see results. The instructors are great, full of positive energy and motivating. Great music is always playing. It is a fun way to burn calories, get in shape and relieve stress by punching a bag!

    Would recommend ILKB to anyone who wants to learn a new skill, lose weight, get fit, or stay motivated through their hour long intensive classes. The instructors are all very informative professional and friendly. Worth a try.

    iLoveKickboxing has consistently given me the best workouts I have ever tried. Each class challenges you in new ways, makes you work hard, and motivates you to be better, faster, stronger. The staff is super friendly and supportive throughout the workout. They get everybody’s energy up through class to great music and hilarious commentary (they keep us laughing, that’s for sure!). I love going to ILKB.. I have never felt so empowered in my own strength!

    I love this studio! I bought a class bundle on Gilt and signed up for a membership after my first class. The staff at this gym are so nice and friendly and really care about the progress of every individual. I really feel like I am part of an exclusive fight club family here. The studio itself is very clean and the bathrooms are stocked with toiletries.

    I would recommend this work out to anyone! It is a fun way to get into shape and I leave every class feeling like a total badass!

    I've been a member since May 2016. For years I've been trying to find a program to keep me motivated and focused on reaching my physical goals. Let me tell you...These instructors know how to keep you engaged and excited. Is the 15 minute warm up intense? SURE!! but, the results after a while are well worth it. Friendly instructors. Awesome Members. CLEAN facility. Positive and encouraging environment. You can't beat that!!

    I've been a member of ILKB since January of 2015 and it quickly became my favorite place to workout. The workout is amazing cardio throughout, but more importantly it makes you stronger. I saw a difference in my arms within a few months. The instructors are also great. They push you and encourage you throughout the entire class, and there isn't a class that goes by that an instructor doesn't give me tips to improve my form. I look forward to going to kickboxing and feel great afterwards I would recommend for anyone of any age!

    I started working out at ilovekickboxing a month ago and after my first class I got hooked! It's totally different from any fitness class I've ever taken. It works the full body AND the mind! The instructors make you want to push yourself further than your limit! I go about 3 times a week to a studio in Bayside, NY where the staff is extremely funny, motivating, helpful, and passionate about their work! They also post helpful tips about health, fitness and excercise in a private Facebook group, which makes me feel like I'm part of a big, fun fitness family.
    I recommend getting the web special (they also have great discounts for special occasions like holidays) - you get free gloves with it!!

    I can't say enough positive things about my time spent at ILKB Midtown East. As a dancer and overall fitness lover, I am always looking for new and exciting workout routines to challenge me and keep me motivated. After almost 2 years of membership I have to say I think I have found my dream workout. The instructors are passionate, well educated, and attentive, always eager to offer advice to improve your technique and help you reach your fitness goals. The members are kind and super supportive, making you feel like you are a part of a family. The workouts are hard and will push you to your limits. At the end of that hour though, you leave that mat feeling stronger both mentally and physically and are ready to take on the world. This is a place that molds people into badasses, and I am proud to be one of them.

    Got in with a Groupon and I regret getting the 4 classes instead of 10 classes! It's the best workout I have ever done! ILKB is seriously something I would want to be a part of (when I get a job). And 5 stars because it can get addicting!

    Hands down the best workout EVER! I have been attending ILKB at 43rd Street for about a year and quit all of my other gyms because this workout is far superior to any other I have tried. The instructors here are so amazing! They are continuously pushing us to do our best (because they know we can do it) and always willing to work with us when we need help. I know every time I attend class I’m going to get sweaty, stronger, laugh and have a great time (even during the warm up!) I 100% recommend ILKB to everyone I know!!

    I joined the ILKB family at the 43rd street location a week ago and I LOVE it! The energy, while at first intimidating, is very encouraging and uplifting. Within the first ten minutes I was sweating and felt like I was going to the die, but the instructors, while tough, are supportive. I highly recommend ILKB if you are bored with the gym and looking for something fun to keep your interest in fitness alive.

    A good friend introduced me to the ILoveKickBoxing family in July 2015 and it has been a Great! experience. The Workout starts with an intense 15min full body workout. Then a 6-7min stretch. Then we get to hit shit 6-3min rounds of jabs, crosses, upper cuts, hooks, round house kicks combinations. This fun is taught by several Awesome! instructors who each bring something different to their workout. They are always ready to help with perfecting the techniques and reaching your goals. If you are looking for a Great! workout to help with losing weight, strengthening your core or just to get in shape. I think you should try ILoveKickBoxing.

    I found ilovekickboxing through a groupon deal. During my first session I was immediately hooked. I became a member in October 2015.

    The classes are AMAZING! I look forward to going to class. About 15-20 min of cardo strength training, , and then we are kicking and boxing. Loads of fun, and what a workout.

    I love the staff! Everyone is funny and very unique, super friendly and so happy.

    I feel very comfortable and everyone is friendly.

    Ilovekickboxing - since joining I have seen a tremendous change in my body

    I am really happy here.

    ILKB 43rd st is the best gym I have ever gone to - I would never have thought of myself as someone who could do something as high-intensity as kickboxing, but ILKB has really boosted my confidence! Honestly, the hardest part of working out here is trying to decide which instructor is my favorite! I don't have any family in New York City, but I always feel welcomed like family when I walk through ILKB's door. You couldn't convince me to workout anywhere else!

    AMAZING workout and so much fun! All the instructors are super friendly and willing to answer questions/give tips both on and off the mat. Buy the wraps if you're going to be going more than 3 days a week because it could definitely take a toll on your hands/wrists. Make sure you have enough energy when you go because the first fifteen minutes is a crazy cardio warm up!

    ILoveKickboxing 43rd St has motivated me to work harder than I ever have. I used to run competitively and dance, but even those workouts do not compare to every session at ILKB. The instructors are wonderful: they are always willing to correct your form, offer modifications, and push you to your limits (something that's really tough to do solo). I'm grateful every time I go to a class, and leave with a bright smile on my face. The improvements in my mood, energy, and body are priceless.

    I joined because I was looking for something more than the average gym routine. I wanted something more FUN and MOTIVATING - and I found it here. The class structure is great: 15 min insane warm-up, bag work, then partner work. And the instructors are really motivating. I've been going over a year now and I can feel my form getting better all the time. Overall a great studio, glad I found it!

    Definitely a great workout. Was reluctant to sign up at first over a year ago. After 2 classes off my groupon, I took the plunge and signed up. Only regret was not signing up on the first day. So far, this is the only workout that has kept me motivated.

    I started with their 19.99 deal for 3 classes and got hooked! (no pun intended ;) ) I've now been a part of the ILKB family for two years and am getting better and challenged every day by the staff. I've always been looking for a way to build up my endurance (the treadmill is the bane of my existence) and since going to class I've gotten so much better! Aside from endurance, my muscle tone, flexibility and self confidence all increased thanks to ILKB. Since joining, I've gotten friends and coworkers of all ages and body types to try ILKB and they all LOVE it. Ilovekickboxing is a great total body workout with great trainers and great classes. I definitely encourage everyone to try it out!

    Passionate trainers who can assist you on
    learning the basic punching, kicking techniques while giving you a handwork out. The pain is good the results are better. After a few classes you will be a regular watching the pounds shred.

    Let's be honest, kickboxing is a good work-out, but what sold me hands-down at this location was the high-energy, amazing people who work there. Every work-out is so fun that you forget (or actively suppress) the fact that you're doing a crazy work-out. I now feel sad on the days that I can't get to a class. On the fence about whether or not to give it a try? Just do it!

    I have been very active and athletic but getting to the gym started to get harder as I started working more. I fell into a rut and didn't know how to get out. My friend started coming here in March of 2013 and recommended that I try it. I was skeptical at first but finally gave in and tried it and FELL IN LOVE. I have been coming here since May and it has been AMAZING. I feel motivated every time I go to class there. All the instructors are phenomenal and keep you working hard and keep pushing you which is exactly what I need. They are some of the nicest, welcoming and encouraging people I have ever met. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

    I love kickboxing has really changed the way i work out. I never was someone into fitness or getting into shape but going to kickboxing at 43rd street has really motivated me to work on my fitness goals. The workouts not only make me stronger, and skinnier, but it is also a great way to work out my stress. When I go to class, i feel 100% better than i did before class. I feel like i could run a marathon. I feel stronger right away. The results are super quick and this motivates me even more to push myself to go at least 4 times a week! I am a member here and have invited my friends to join me as well. None of them have regretting joining as well! You will be happy you did! Sign up now!

    I joined ILKB 10 months ago and it has been one of the greatest decisions I've ever made! After the first class I felt in love with that studio and the people who work there. ILKB classes are so energetic, powerful and different every time that the more you take them the more you want them. I have seen changes not only in my body but my confidence and health. It is perfect to get all that stress from work released. The staff truly care about the members. They keep pushing you to go harder in each class, encourage you to fulfill your fitness goals and to improve your technique. Their positive energy is inevitably contagious! I love!

    The instructors are amazing! They will push you beyond your limits.
    Classes are hard, but if they were easy, it would not be fun, right?
    There is one thing that you have to keep in mind every time you come to class… You gotta push yourself. You never know how strong you are, until be strong is the only option you have.

    Ilovekickboxing is true to its name...I Love kickboxing. I started off as a groupon, and after the first class, I was hooked! What I love most is the welcoming atmosphere by the instructors and the members. So many times I've been in gyms where I feel like my clothes, body and technique were being judged. Not here! There are people of all ages and fitness levels which make the experience fun. And don't even get me started on how fantastic I feel after an hour workout. Quick, fun, and calorie burning!

    The best full-body workout you'll ever get! 60 minutes of high energy + high intensity sessions that will definitely get you the results you're looking for.

    The first 15 minutes is a killer "warm-up" - and you better do 'em right or you get 20 more burpees! There's no hiding from these energetic instructors; they are there to really support you and help you meet your goals. Then there's 6 rounds of 3-minute combos: jab, cross, hook, upper cut, front house kick, round house kick...and maybe you'll end with a superman punch or a flying round house! The best part is, these bags don't punch back, so you can hit 'em as hard as you want! The classes end with partner work, so you can give and receive feedback on your technique.

    The facility is always clean, and they provide all bathroom and shower essentials. Classes start and end on time, which is very important for a girl who's always on the go. Instructors are always available to help you get that extra stretch after class, or just to answer any questions. This location is super convenient, located close to the Grand Central Terminal. As of late, they've been adding more and more classes - they're even open during the holidays (although on a limited schedule).

    So go ahead and give it a try! The music is always poppin', everyone is super friendly, and the workouts are so much fun! You won't regret it. You'll be joining a family: there's member appreciation nights, themed parties, and mini-competitions to get everyone motivated. Hurry and get your free gloves with your first try-out! Say whaaaaat? East Siiiiide!!!

    My roommate and I bought this groupon online, she had been recommended to try these kickboxing classes of a friend and I decided I wanted to try it to.
    It was definitely one of my best decisions ever!!!

    I have been trying a lot of different work outs at my local gym, and for me it is hard to keep my motivation up and keep on going. I must admit, I was exhausted after the first class, the 15 minute warm up was killing me..Haha! But I felt so good afterwards, and I wanted to come back.

    The instructors are amazing, they push you to wanting to keep on going and they are really good in what they do! They make you feel a part of a family that help, each other to reaching your goals. Every class is different and very engaging. I really enjoy these classes, and I recommend it to the fullest!!

    I was walking to the gym one night with a friend and she convinced me to try something new. I was very hesitant at first, but it has become my new addiction. The staff there is very friendly, energetic, and they actually pay attention to your form unlike many other places. The warms ups and bag work are very challenging, but you definitely get a great overall workout. This has replaced my gym visits and I've noticed better results coming here. I have yet to leave there feeling like I didn't get a great workout. If you haven't already, definitely check it out!!! You won't be disappointed!!!

    Put in the work and the results will follow. In this case- showing up is all I needed to do. The classes are intense and you will never regret attending! I've cancelled appointments/parties just to come to class- it's that amazing! Once you're there, all the trainers and even your fellow classmates will push you and keep you motivated. I even became a morning person just to attend 7am classes once my schedule no longer allowed me to go for the evening classes. Love all the arm work they do- every girl should know how to throw a powerful punch, do a push-up on her toes and squat low! You get all of that and more here. The instructors are extremely motivating and constantly watching you to make sure your form is correct and making sure you continue to challenge yourself. Not to mention the place is always kept clean, especially the bathrooms which always have soap and shampoo for a shower after class- the way you are gonna sweat, you will need it!!

    AMAZING workout! It targets every muscle of your body, and you can see results in as little as one week. The instructors are really what make the class an enjoyable experience. They kick my butt during class, but I'm glad they do! The encouragement and motivation they provide is just what I need, so that I don't give up. I'm the type of person who gets bored with the same workout, but I never get tired of this. I like that the class sizes are smaller, and instructors pay attention to your form. From past experiences, I haven't met a lot of instructors who care about form as much as they do. They actually walk around the room, and give you personal attention. I highly recommend this class to any and everyone! Happy Kickboxing!

    I can't recommend this place enough!! If you're like me, with a habitually lazy streak, especially when going to the gym this is the perfect place for you. The instructors are both extremely supportive and very capable of giving you the push you need to get going. The class is split up perfectly between a killer warm-up, proper stretching and amazing bag work. I love that no matter if it's your first class or your 30th they are there to make sure your technique is on the right track and give you any help needed. With an hour class you get the BEST workout, and not to mention the catharsis of punching the bag after a long day of work or in the morning to get the day started right. I always look forward to coming to class and jab-crossing to fun music with a great group! Plus I'll never forget my first class with Kelly Murray. She IS BOSS. :)

They push you to get the best out of you all in a fun & friendly environment. You will never want to miss a class! LOVE the energy from the staff AND from the other members! Results are better than any other program out there. If you want results fast this is the place to go.
