Fight Club

I’m about to break the first and seconds rules of Fight Club…

I have been to BodyCombat two times, and had a good experience with both. Good workout. Fun music. One of my best buds is a regular to a particular BodyCombat class – she raves about it and pretty much never misses a class. Yesterday, I decided to join her.

I knew that Jesi would be there, but had no idea that there was a handful of other friends (and my own sister) who were fighting too. I cannot believe I have been missing out on this every week for the past few years.



They rolled out a new class yesterday (new music and choreography is released every 3 months), which was great for me because I wasn’t the only one trying to figure out when to punch, kick, kata, and fist pump. In general the music and choreography were awesome. A few times, I could have sworn we were on VH1 in a BonJovi music video… not a bad thing, people.

As with every class, the instructor makes all the difference. Right? If I am going to follow someone’s every move for 60 minutes, I want them to be fun, know their stuff, and have a sense of rhythm (for goodness sakes). The instructor’s name is Josef (yo-sef) and he is a master trainer for BodyCombat. He’s the real deal. He refers to us all as, “fighters” (which gets me all charged up). For an hour straight, I was punching, kicking, lunging, sweating, hooting, smiling, and laughing. And today, I’m sore. #hurtssogood

I’m considering joining Fight Club. It would be a no brainer, except for my 1 and 2 year old daughters who are too young for Fight Club, but too drama for Kid’s Club. Oye vey! I’m going to have to figure something out though – it’s too good and too fun to pass up. If you’re in the Costa Mesa/Newport Beach area, you should definitely check it out.

Tuesdays, 9am at 24 Hour Fitness (Costa Mesa Newport location)

Added Bonus: The class is a Cougar Den. Like, hard core. For the first time in my life, I saw a woman do a high intensity martial arts class in wedges. Which according to my sister, “is very dangerous.” Come, if for nothing else, to see this gal fighting in a “3 inch wedge.

What is your favorite group exercise class?

    My favourite class is Body Combat. I am an instructor, and only decided to become one because of my passion for this program. You should definitely do it again! I found it was a great stress reliever.

      Agreed! I must try it again.

      Do you enjoy instructing the class? Do you do other Les Mills classes too?

    Hmmm. I did reply to this, not sure what happened to it. Anyway, yes I love instructing, best ‘job’ I have ever had. Either way I would be doing those classes but this way I get paid for it lol. I also participate in BodyPump classes and I am trained in BodyJam & Sh’Bam, I teach Combat 4 times a week and Sh’bam twice a week.

    Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog
    jump out. Please let me know where you got your design.
