Testimonials

Amanda and Jess are awesome coaches who help me grind through some tough kickboxing workouts. No matter how tired I feel going into class, I always leave feeling confident and motivated!

You will not find a more invested coach and friend—someone who caters to and accommodates each person individually. She is truly passionate about what she does, and it shows through her work and dedication. I look forward to every session and have been attending for over 4 years now. I am proud of the goals I have achieved, both mentally and physically, and I thank Amanda for her encouragement and knowledge.

I’ve been going to Amanda’s women’s only kick boxing class for about 6 months now and I LOVE it. When I went in there for the first time I was nervous, this was the first time I was ever stepping into a gym/studio or taking a class of any sort, I didn’t know what to expect but almost immediately the anxiety left and I felt comfortable. Amanda is an amazing coach and human. She’s a huge part of the reason I stuck with it. The workouts are great, the classes are fun, and it’s so nice to be in a room full of women cheering each other on. Highly recommend checking it out!

I started taking my daughter to kickboxing classes in Saint John as a way to help her deal with stress and trauma. Amanda has been absolutely amazing with her and for the first time (I think ever) my daughter has found an activity she looks forward to participating in. What was supposed to be a once a week commitment has turned into twice a week – and what has become extremely beneficial for her has been beneficial for me as well. Even if you don’t know anything about kickboxing, or haven’t broken a sweat in an embarassingly long time (I’m speaking from experience), I highly recommend KickBasics for your physical and emotional health.
