Get the scoop on Hit House from blogger, Katie Tepper!
1) Is this class a good fit for all fitness levels?
Hit House is great for all fitness levels, especially those who are new to boxing/Muay Thai. The class starts out with an introduction to each punch and kick that will be used to ensure you know proper form. Additionally, once you get into combos, they’re only about 4 moves long, so it’s really easy to follow.
2) What was your favorite part of class?
I love when the combo work starts, especially ones that involve both kicks and punches. I’ve been boxing for many years, and when you’re able to throw a combo really quickly and with power you feel like such a badass!
3) What piece of advice would you give someone that has never taken a Hit House class?
Don’t be afraid to tell the instructor you’re new! It’ll only work to your benefit as they’re more likely to assist you with technique. Also, don’t get intimidated or compare yourself to others in the class who are more advanced. “Gymtimidation” is a real thing that holds people back from experiencing new workouts because they’re afraid to look inexperienced or lost. This is particularly true for classes like Hit House because they require a level of coordination and muscle memory. If you let this get to you, you could prevent yourself from trying out a workout that could eventually become one of your favorites! Also, always remember that everyone’s fitness level is different and we were all beginners once.
