Dear Groupon, I think it’s awesome when you have deals on new gyms. $30 for five classes? I love it.
I think I first got on the Knockout Bodies e-mail listserv because I bought a fitness pass to the Cellar Boxing Gym. (That I bought off crowdcut.com.)
Knockout Bodies is a women only gym. Attention ladies! No sweaty grunty dudes looking at you while you work out! (Unless, of course, that’s your thing…in which case you can go out the door and work out at the co-ed Cellar Boxing Gym.) Knockout Bodies is located behind the Cellar Boxing Gym, so you would have to walk through that to get to this location. If you’ve been to the no frills, get down and fight Cellar Studio…Knockout Bodies is quite a different atmosphere. First off, everything’s pink. That’s right. Pink boxing gloves, punching bags, weights, yoga mats. You name it. This is remniscent of Flex Appeal Studios where the color scheme is hot pink and black. Knockout Bodies is pink and gray.
So here’s what I liked:
1) Cleanliness – It’s a new place, so the hardwood floors were glistening. The changing area was neat. The weights and yoga mats were very clean.
2) Color Scheme – I do like the pink and gray color scheme. I think it’s cute and tough.
3) High Ceilings – You don’t feel like you’re enclosed. Very open space.
4) Class Variety – Here it’s everything from kickboxing to pole dancing. AND with the tall ceilings you could climb very high…you just have to make sure you have enough arm strength to get back down.
My only critique is that a specific class is only offered at the same times each week. Which means, if it doesn’t work with your work schedule…it would be hard to ever make it to that class. Maybe they’ll revamp their schedule as they try to figure out what works with their clientele.
