Instructor Testimonials

I was excited to combine my love of kickboxing and teaching choreographed group fitness when AMPD announced kickboxing as a new format. One thing I love about it is that literally anyone can do it. Being non-contact, those with limitations that have kept them from exercise are finding that they CAN move and have fun at the same time without pain they felt during a boxing or kickboxing session. It has allowed me to introduce this to new faces and seeing these participants develop and improve every week has been amazing. I love to identify when someone is ready for more and help them improve their technique which elevates their workout and their confidence! The Kickboxing classes at my studio have been booked full and often have a waiting list. It has been a breath of fresh air to our business and our community. I love to turn the music up and have fun. We all leave dripping with sweat and feeling amazing!

AMPD Kickboxing Instructor & Studio Owner
Years ago, I taught martial arts for about 15 years. Every day I miss something about those days. But with the AMPD Kickboxing program, I am able to channel that part of my life back into my group fitness classes. Not only does it incorporate traditional kickboxing moves, it also brings in self-defense techniques, the art form of karate as well as the sport of Kickboxing. All the things I loved rolled into one all encompassing package. My participants love it so much that their words exactly were, "it makes me feel badass!"

As a mom, wife, boss, group fitness instructor, law enforcement officer for 20+ years and a defensive tactics instructor, AMPD Kickboxing is by far one of my favorite classes to teach! Not only is it a wonderful, effective format, but it is such an important part of our everyday life! AMPD Kickboxing gives my participants feelings of confidence and being successful. I see so much improvement week after week as they become more confident in their form, and stronger in their intensity! Another benefit is the time and effort it takes to learn this format. The techniques, the choreo and instruction are basic and simple, which gives me more time with my family and less time having to prepare for classes once the foundation is set! This workout is amazing and so worth it! My participants loves AMPD Kickboxing! I am so happy to be a part of the AMPD Strong family!
