Yay for the first guest blogger on Bee in DC – my husband, Tommy!
With their Grand Opening in January of 2013, you can “kick” off your fitness related New Year’s resolutions in style at DC Boxing and Fitness (or DCBFIT)! Located at 1000 New Jersey Avenue in Southeast D.C., DCBFIT will offer high-intensity, high-fun fitness and kickboxing training based on the art of “Muay Thai” kickboxing.
For the uninitiated, Muay Thai is a combat sport from Thailand which makes use of punches, kicks, elbows, and knees. It has gained mainstream exposure in the U.S. in-part due to the rise in popularity of “Mixed Martial Arts” and the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
Side bar: I was very fortunate to go and train at a Muy Thai training camp in a city in Thailand, Chiang Mai, Christmas 2009. It was a lot of fun and I learned so much from the trainers and fighters at the camp. I’m hoping I’ll have as much fun at this new gym as I did at the training camp.
Be sure to check out www.dcbfit.com for a fun and exciting change of pace from the usual weights and cardio at the gym as January approaches, and we’ll see you in the ring!
