Normally, restaurants, retailers and other local establishments showcase heart and cupid decor, “two for one” specials and roses for all Valentine’s Day enthusiasts. But not iLoveKickboxing, the fast-growing fitness kickboxing franchise with more than 180 locations. Instead, every studio will hold special events with more of an “Anti-Valentine’s Day” twist. On February 13th, the worldwide annual “Shred your Ex” events will allow participants to punch and kick any of their ex’s -- including spouses, boyfriends, girlfriends, bosses, illnesses, personal bad habits, and yes, excuses -- without being labeled a little psycho!
Thousands of members across North America and Peru will tape photos to their gym’s kickboxing bags of whatever, or whomever, they want to “shred.” Then they'll punch, kick and land spinning back fists to the photos, all in the name “ex-orcising” their past demons. Studios will also feature live DJs, raffles and other surprises.
“In addition to getting a full-body workout and burning a ton of calories, our workouts always provide members with a great way to relieve stress and let go. Shred Your Ex really kicks that up a notch,” said iLoveKickboxing Brand Spokesperson Teresa Oxford Parrella. “It allows attendees the chance to finally rid themselves of any issues that they may be harboring against someone or something, in a supportive setting, and have great time!”
“Shred Your Ex” joins a long list of events iLoveKickboxing.com studios host throughout the year. From monthly live DJ events to member mixers and appreciation parties, the fitness franchise regularly plans activities for members and instructors to bond over.
