New Member FAQs
Our mission is to create a positive and comfortable experience for new women which is why we have designed the required enrollment options listed above. We don't offer drop-in classes.
If you've done kickboxing before and you are familiar and comfortable performing basic kickboxing and exercise movements, you have the option to start with our KUMA Orientation.
After you complete one of our intro session options, you'll be ready to join our community! All members have a monthly plan which you can choose at any point during your intro course.
To become a member, you will need to complete one of our intro course options listed above. We highly recommend our 2-Week Kickboxing Foundations Course if it works for your schedule.
The Foundations Course is a class that is ONLY for new members. You will take all 4 classes with the same women and each class has a progressive lesson. It's the best option to get started. The 1:1 Intro Sessions are a good option if our Foundation's schedule doesn't meet your needs. You will be meeting 1:1 with a coach for 30 minutes prior to participating in a regular kickboxing class.
Our studio has made a number of changes in order to maintain the health and safety of our members. We rearranged the training floor to reduce the capacity (we previously had a capacity of 20 so this means you’ll have a lot of extra space around you) and members face the same direction during the workouts.
Update Jan. 1, 2022: Masks are required while in the studio. You have the option to remove your mask when you are in your training space and during the workout.
Please remember, everyone will be on different levels of comfort. There are still people in our community that may not be able to get vaccinated or may still prefer to wear a mask. Let’s continue to respect and support one another.
If you have any symptoms of COVID, regardless of whether or not you’ve been vaccinated, please stay home.
Our team has a revised a rigorous cleaning checklist that we go through in between each and every class which includes sanitizing all bags, surfaces and the training floor. We are doing our best to keep every member safe and healthy. 🙂
We offer a new way of approaching your nutrition—Intuitive Eating. Eating used to be an intuitive process for all of us. Over time, we have stopped listening to what our bodies need and fallen into a pattern of guilt and shame around food. Learn how to stop the cycle and go back to our natural ability to eat intuitively!
Definitely NOT. Most of our new members are either starting or getting back into the journey of fitness. We are here to support you and get you feeling strong!
Never—we have members from 18-80. Our coaches will provide modifications for every workout!
Your previous experience should mean that you are comfortable with the following: jab, cross, hook, uppercut, front kick, roundhouse, and squats.
The 2-Week Foundations Course is still a great option especially if you love learning more about technique or if you're nervous to start at a new studio.
You're in good company
I NEVER thought I would be the person who gets up early to go exercise, and for kickboxing no less! But with such a supportive and fun environment it became something I truly enjoyed and basically craved. It improved my mental health, my sleep habits and my stress levels. The coaches and women at KUMA fit create an amazing environment where showing up to class is a success worth celebrating.

Whether you are a seasoned athlete or just starting to exercise, young or old, fit or flabby, if you want to get a good workout and improve your physical and mental health, KUMA is the place for you. It has a positive, upbeat atmosphere that immediately put me at ease. The owner, coaches, and other members are all incredibly supportive.

It feels awesome to feel like I can be success at a new 'sport' or fitness genre. I'm not the sporty type but I love kickboxing. I love the people, the coaches and how I feel after I kickbox. It's an empowering experience that has helped me make great changes to my psyche and weightloss.
