First and foremost I love 8 Limbs, because it is such a welcoming and fun community! Even though the workouts are intense, I felt welcomed and supported as someone with no martial arts or boxing background. It’s also great walking in and seeing genuinely diverse students, especially seeing people of all different body types.
Prior to joining 8 Limbs, I worked out about once every 4 months, mostly out of obligation to the monthly dues I was paying. Fast forward seven months, and I make an effort to get to the gym 3-4 times every week, because I look forward to seeing other students! 8 Limbs has become a staple of both my physical and mental health. I really love it here!
