“There’s nothing better than a class with Tisha, and kickboxing is my absolute favorite!  If you’re looking for a way to reduce stress and feel empowered while also getting a great full-body workout, you can’t beat kickboxing!”

  • Karen C.

I took Tisha’s 30 Minute Bag Blitz last week and I absolutely loved it!  Tisha took the time to guide us on proper form – as to avoid injuries.  Her directions were clear with first starting with a demonstration. The class was fast-paced, and I got a great workout in a short period of time.  I will definitely try to make this class a weekly commitment – other than golf every now and then on Thursdays.
