Benefits of Training With NWFA

The women’s kickboxing classes at NWFA focus on developing a high level of fitness while training in useful, real-world and straight-forward defense techniques. Not only does it produce awesome results, the classes are fun and challenging.

We create unique routines that help you burn anywhere from 700-1100 calories per hour of boot camp. It’s a practical way to work out, you’ll not only tone your body but you’ll learn techniques for self-defense. It’s a great way to get in shape, while learning the skills you need to properly protect yourself.


Q: What will I be doing in these classes?

A: In these circuit boot camp classes you’ll throw hundreds of punches, kicks, elbows and knees. You’ll strike mitts and heavy bags, which are not only more intense than just punching the air, but you’ll learn how to use these strikes in real-life situations.. Plus, throw in dozens of different cross-training exercises with medicine balls and kettlebells and you’ll see how this whole body workout will leave you toned from head to toe!

Q: “Sounds fun, but what if I don’t want to get hit?”

A: No worries. The boot camp-style women’s kickboxing classes are all technique and conditioning focused. While you will be learning effective strikes and defensive moves, all of the training is done with kickboxing gloves for women, focus mitts and kick shields. No one is actually hit during these training sessions. Safety of our members is our utmost priority. And, if you do feel like testing out your self-defense skills in a safe environment, there are separate sparring times where you can work more competitively.
