    Great instructors, welcoming environment. Group workouts work really well to help you push through any session.

    I’ve always hated going to the gym, but I knew I needed to be more active and more toned to feel better. However, a person cannot maintain a fitness regime if it’s not fun and enjoyable. Not for long anyways. I began my search for that one fun and enjoyable workout about 6 months ago. I’ve tried everything from aerial yoga to pole dancing, and I did not like anything. That is until I found a Groupon for ILKB and decided to give it a try. I was so pleasantly surprised with their kickboxing classes. They were not only fun for me but such a great outlet on stressful days. I became a member not only because I loved the classes but also because the staff there never pushed me too much yet always cheered me on. They are not just fitness instructors but friends as well. ILKB is as they call it a “family”. Once you try a class, you’ll never want to go to a gym or anywhere else. It’s simply the best.

    I could go to places closer to me, but I don't. I drive to South Philly, park in fear of PPA and I do it regularly. =) This place is bursting full of positive vibes and good energy. It has become like my neighborhood "cheers". The place you go where everybody knows your name. It is a damn hard workout, and doesn't get easier. The instructors continue to keep you motivated and are approachable for advice. I leave feeling disgusting drenched in sweat EVERYTIME, and I love it. The only thing I've been able to consistently stick with in a long time.

    The ILKB workout is the hardest thing I've ever wanted to do twice! The facilities are clean, the staff is welcoming and supportive, the members are awesome and the workout is fun! I know that an hour spent there is more valuable and productive then any time I've spent in a conventional gym.

    I am not one for joining gyms and working out but, my decision to join ILKB was among one of my best yet! In the few months I have been going, I have already started to see some positive changes. The workout is tough, especially the first 15 minutes, but the staff is encouraging and help you get through it. Whether your a beginner or have experience you will get a great workout!

    I cant recommend joining the South Street Squad at ILKB enough. This group of fabulous trainers really know what they are doing and do it in style. Each class brings new and exciting bag combinations that keep you coming back for more. The workouts are fun but extremely challenging ... but they are wroth the results. Come out and join the Philly Phamily!!

    I literally love iLoveKickboxing workouts. I have been working out from past 3 years in gym but this place takes fitness to all new level. I have never felt so awesome during and after my workout. They do monthly assessment of your FITNESS journey so that you don't loose track. Staff here always welcome you with the biggest and warmest smile ever. I can't thank you guys enough for making me feel so GOOD. Can’t recommend it enough!!!

    I just joined this gym and already I love it! The format of the class is great. 15 minutes of hell then 30 minutes of bag work where they take time to help each person perfect their form then 15 minutes of partner work which is a great way to get to knwo other people at the gym. It's a great family atmosphere and I do feel much more accountable for actually going since I won't just get lost in the crowd and forgotten. I'd recommend it to anyone!

    Joining and actively taking part in ILoveKickboxing Philly has been one of the best decisions that I have made for my self in a really long time.

    First off, the fitness element: I say this to every newbie I come across, "the workout will kick your butt, but it will be worth it." The conditioning, bag rounds, and partner drills are physically challenging, but with consistency you actually FEEL yourself continually improving. And even after the first few times, you walk out feeling like a rockstar! Speaking as someone who joined not only to "get fit" or "lose weight," but to regain a lost sense of power, the strength that I've felt walking out of these classes has in itself been valuable! Not to mention that it's way more exciting than running on a treadmill. Also, worth noting, there are truly members of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness capabilities in class - instructors are happy to adapt workouts for folks who might need it, and I've never witnessed any shaming or judgment, only encouragement.

    The supportive element of our ILKB Phamily (yep, at Philly ILKB we call ourselves a Pham), has probably been the greatest draw to keep coming back. Instructors are super encouraging from the moment you walk in the door. They do a great job of working with "first day friends," and keep us all connected, in high spirits, and supportive of one another on our special Facebook group. I've had instructors go above and beyond to personally work with me any time I wanted to revisit or change my goals, navigate challenges, or improve on something, and I'll often chat them up about my good days, my bad days, and the other ongoings in my life. It's beyond meaningful to me that they genuinely care, not just about my fitness improvement, but about what's going on with me holistically. They are incredibly sensitive and aware, and have always been open to my feedback as a member. At this point, they know me well enough to recognize and engage with me on my many quirks =) As a result of the ILKB culture that they create for us members (and you can choose to what extent you want to partake in that), I've gained a really wonderful community of people who want to be their best selves and who hold a positive space for me to be my best self.

    I love kickboxing sold me after class #2. I go three times a week and get a great workout. The workout is as hard as you want to make it and you are able to go at your pace. The trainers are motivating and supportive, willing and open to talk to you about your nutrition and workout regimen. The gym is a family and the smiles and excitement make me want to return day after day, week after week. I love that i leave each class with a smile and energized.

    I love kickboxing!! I've been with ILKB Philly for almost a year and I love it! I go 3 times a week and every class is different and a challenge. I love the variety in the workouts and that you're actually dripping sweat! The classes are challenging, but not impossible - they definitely get your heart pumping. The instructors are awesome at motivating and pushing you. Classes are something I look forward to - and the other people are great. They're all ages, shapes, sizes, genders - don't be scared! Just do it!

    I never liked exercise. I never felt a runner's high. I didn't get excited about going to gym. However, my teenage metabolism is no longer and I needed to be proactive. I noticed this gym was opening in my hood and I decided I would give it shot. Well it actually took about a year before I signed up. I'm slow but determined :)

    Anyway, this place changed my life. It's more than exercise. It's a community. A group of people, led by the fearless instructors, pushing each other to be better. Sure the classes are great. It's a full body workout and you will sweat. But the instructors are really who set the tone here. They have managed to create an uplifting environment. Even my non-athletic bones feel like I can be Xena after a class. So cheers to this crew. I'm proud to be a member and look forward to losing another 20lbs!

    Just one step into this facility and you'll feel the good vibrations...and it ain't Marky Mark (although one could only wish...le sigh!). I was one of the first members to join back in August 2015 and I have not stopped punching and kicking since then! Becoming a part of this amazing phamily has been a fun and inspirational journey! I say this because sometimes, when there are a lot of women together in the same place, there can be lots of back stabbing, jealousy, negativity, bickering, whining, etc. but NOT at this studio! We all have each other's backs, NO negativity, NO judgment, we push each other and we all want to see each other succeed! I mean, besides, you'll get your ass kicked if you bring that ish in here with you. Just sayin' :-) 5 stars for a 5 star phamily.

    The classes, the instructors, and all of the people that go here are so great. I have never been so comfortable working out anywhere. ILKB has made me feel less stressed in every day life - I always leave with a smile on my face!

    The staff at ILKB are beyond amazing...they take the time to make sure you know exactly what your are doing and that you are doing it the proper way. From the 1st time i walked in they made me feel like family and that i belonged.

    One word: AMAZING: Two words: Kick Ass: Three words: Total Ass Kicking! Seriously, this place is amazing. I've done many different types of workouts and this one has it all. Nowhere else do I find myself laughing as the sweat is pouring down me and I'm trying to push myself that much harder. Plus they totally help you get your money's worth by a little check in if you are like me and don't do well fitting the gym into your life. Everything from the instructors to the music to the workouts is top notch. Try it out. If this fomer ballerina can do it (even though looking ridiculous most of the time) so can you! You won't be dissappointed.

    Clean facility. Excellent schedules. Parking can be a challenge on South Street but hey, we can't have everything. ILKB South Philly is awesome! They have members only events, meetups and DJ night, one of my favorite things (a live DJ provides the music for class and there is a fun theme). ILKB also hosts location based and corporate contests that motivate you to reach and surpass your own fitness goals. You get plenty of support from your instructors AND fellow kickboxers. You will make friends! I highly recommend!
