OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Traci Flores was an inspiration to me as she demonstrated how to make all the right moves in her kickboxing class at AmeriKick in Overland Park. Flores is the instructor and I was her guest for my weekly workout.
The class started with some warm-up exercises. Then we put on our boxing gloves and started punching and kicking our individual punching bags.
About 20 students were in the class.
I did side kicks and back kicks and upper-cuts and hooks and jabs. It was a real lesson in kickboxing terms and the full experience. I would definitely go back for another workout!
