Purchased by local entrepreneur Hender Alvarado, the franchise opened last week at 275 Glen St., Glen Cove. Like the hundreds of other locations, this one will also incorporate the workouts of professional fighters, while making them accessible and fun to the average man or woman looking to lose weight and get in shape.
In the workouts, members strap on authentic boxing gloves and perform authentic conditioning drills and kickboxing techniques on real heavy bags. Passionate instructors motivate them and encourage them to “go the extra mile” to get the results that members seek.
This marks the 627th location of the franchise, which has grown rapidly over the past few years.
“We’re very happy to be part of this community and all of the communities our studios are in,” said CEO Michael Parrella. “iLoveKickboxing locations give back a lot. They help people get healthy and in shape, they provide fun jobs and career paths, and they’re always running all kinds of fundraisers and charity drives to give back and help those in need. That’s the ILKB way.”
