Kickboxing at Fort Bragg

By Kevin Goode/​Paraglide

Aerobic kickboxing doesn’t involve kicking butt, but it does offer Pope Fitness Center members a break from the normal grind of everyday fitness routines.

New year’s resolutions and colder weather bring an increase attendance to the gym. Early on, members looking to increase their fitness level are committed, but as the year rolls on, those who are not socially and physically connected to gym tend to lose interest.

Sometimes changing workout routines helps to keep it interesting for gym members, said Amanda Christianson, kickboxing instructor and group fitness manager for Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation. Deviating from the normal routine sometimes makes a big difference.
