BODYCOMBAT™ in Chicago and Evanston






Martial arts inspire this fiercely energetic program and draw from disciplines such as karate, boxing, taekwondo, tai chi, and muay thai. Supported by driving music and powerful role model instructors, you strike, punch, kick, and kata your way through calories to superior cardio fitness. Burn calories, improve coordination and agility, and improve posture, core strength, and stability.
The primary goals of BodyCombat are to improve cardiovascular fitness, build strength, increase endurance, and burn calories. Participants can expect to perform a variety of punches, kicks, strikes, and defensive moves during the class. While it incorporates martial arts techniques, BodyCombat is not about combat or self-defense but focused on fitness and conditioning.




A concentrated, shorter version of the fiercely energetic program, BODYCOMBAT™ Express can help you reap the benefits of boxing on even your busiest days. This class is also perfect for those new to boxing who may be working on building stamina for longer BODYCOMBAT™ sessions.

The key advantage of BodyCombat Express is its convenience for those with busy schedules or those looking for a quick, effective workout option. It can be an excellent choice for individuals who want to get in a challenging workout during a lunch break or as a part of their daily routine. Keep in mind that the intensity of BodyCombat Express may be higher due to the shorter duration, so it's essential to listen to your body, stay hydrated, and modify movements as needed to ensure a safe and effective workout. 




Learn authentic boxing techniques, punches, and footwork. Participants may use hand wraps, boxing gloves, focus mitts, and heavy bags for punching drills. Other conditioning exercises may include sprints, jumping rope, med ball drills, and lower and upper back strengthening. Advanced boxing drills can be provided for more experienced participants.
