A state-of-the-art kickboxing fitness facility for men and women, iLoveKickboxing, is set to open in late June. The workout is based on the training of professional kickboxers.

You don't have to be a professional kickboxer to workout at Oldsmar's new iLoveKickboxing facility, but you can learn how to train like one.

Whether you're a fitness novice or a triathlete, everyone can benefit from a workout here.

"It's good for anybody," said Brooke Hazard, co-owner. "It's self-paced."

A state-of-the-art, boutique fitness facility for men and women, iLoveKickboxing is slated to open in late June.

"The whole workout is based on the way professional kickboxers train," Hazard said. "We have high-intensity interval training. We do a lot of body resistance."

In addition, the hourlong workout involves stretching and six rounds of bag work. Hazard said the class ends with partner and conditioning drills.

"When you hit the bag and you're using all your might, you feel strong," Hazard said. "It's empowering."

Hazard said that all of the instructors are fully trained in professional kickboxing and work with their clients to help them achieve maximum results.

"We get to know each other, and we encourage each other," Hazard said. "It's a really positive atmosphere."

Monthly memberships are based on an individual's fitness goals and range from $125 to $149 per month. This includes unlimited classes with the flexibility to take classes anytime. Approximately 44 classes will be offered throughout the week.

Currently, iLoveKickboxing is offering an online special for a trial membership. Anyone can take three classes for $9.99, or five classes for $14.99, which includes an appointment with an instructor and a free pair of boxing gloves.

The facility is at 3784 Tampa Road, Suites 5 and 6. For more information, call (727) 300-2015, or visit ilovekickboxing
