Bag sharing 101!

While quieter classes at Flykick might make for more coaching opportunities and attention from the instructor, busier classes offer their own benefits. At first sharing a bag – especially with someone you’ve just met – can seem a little daunting, but once the bag rounds get into full swing, you’ll soon be unleashing those punches and kicks with more fury than you would be on your own.


Look and learn

One of the easiest ways to learn new techniques is by watching others. When your partner is performing their combo on the bag, having them in sight right opposite you, inches away, not only gives you motivation and inspiration, but it also allows you to pick up tips and tricks that you didn’t have before.

Team work

Working out with others always motivates you to perform better. If you came to class with a friend, then bag sharing is a great way to spend time together socially. If you came alone, then you can bet you’ll be leaving class that day with a new friend in fitness. Whoever your partner on the bag ends up being, you’re sure to find yourself pushed by their pace rather than being control of your own. It’s way more likely you’ll leave your comfort zone this way. And if it doesn’t challenge you – it won’t change you.


Keeping it real

While Flykick comes with all fancy frills of any boutique studio, we still like to pay homage to traditional kickboxing classes where students tend to work in pairs and learn from each other as well as the instructor.

As we mentioned above, when you pair up with a fellow guest you are less in control of your pace and tempo throughout the rounds, lowering rest periods between combinations. Work rate is contagious.
