New Fitness Kickboxing classes commencing in February

Our Fitness Kickboxing classes have been developed by professional martial artists, fitness professionals and strength & conditioning coaches to enable participants of all fitness levels to maximise their results and reach their fitness goals.

The best part is that no experience or fitness is needed to get started.  Even if you have never done an exercise class before, or never thrown a punch or a kick, our qualified instructors will guide you through every step of the way.

In each class you will learn practical kickboxing combinations that you will get to practice on your own boxing bag at your own pace. Then you can pick up the pace and get the most awesome cardio workout.

The hour long classes will have you burning around 800 calories increasing your strength flexibility confidence and enabling you to get more out of each day.

The end result will have you leaner toned and bursting with energy!

The format follows the basic principles of variable duration kickboxing rounds utilising the whole body, interspersed with various bodyweight exercises and, for the more experienced, kettle bells and medicine ball exercises. The classes follow a high intensity interval training protocol (HIIT), which has been found by scientists to produce longer lasting fat burning effects due to the ‘after burn’ effect on the metabolism.

So it’s not just the 500 to 800 calories burnt during the session that make it effective, but it’s the fact that your kick started metabolism keeps burning fat after the workout.


Classes commence Monday 1s February 2016

  • Monday, Wednesday & Friday 6am to 7am
  • Saturday 9am to 10am

Classes will be taught by the newest member of our team, Megan Atkins.

Megan began her martial arts training at the age of 13 under Ajarn Geordie of Black Dragon Kai. It was through her training that she developed a passion for fitness and wellbeing. As a young girl battling confidence issues and depression, martial arts gave her a welcoming family and a place to bring out what was inside of her. The more skilled she became and the more aesthetically her body transformed, the more confident she became. Through her training, her interest in fitness developed into a passion for supporting others in their own mental & physical transformations.

Subsequently Megan completed her Certificate III & IV to become a qualified personal trainer & fitness instructor followed up with a Level 1 Strength & Conditioning Coaches qualification and courses for training Children. Megan is currently studying a Diploma in Management and will begin a Bachelor in Natural Medicine to become a Naturopath.

Megan ‘packs some punch’ with the latest industry knowledge in weight loss/management nutrition & performance eating which goes hand in hand with fitness & kick boxing training. She is a big advocate for whole-food healthy eating and can offer personal dietary advice to fast track your fitness journey.

Megan believes that “motivation is what gets you started, but habits is what keeps you going” and through professional advice and support you can equip yourself with the right habits to continuously achieve your goals. Megan believes that if you look after your physical body first, your mental health, relationships & work will improve also.
