Kickboxing Instructor Archie Grunden

Hello! I am Kickboxing Instructor Archie Grunden at iLoveKickboxing Cumming Ga!  I started teaching fitness kickboxing because I believe exercise saves lives.  The way kickboxing and martial arts has changed my life, I can now give back. I am currently working on running a 10K and plan to go back to school to be a personal trainer. I have overcome my own fitness struggles, and I want to reach out to others.

When I started kickboxing, I went from being 225 pounds to 145 pounds. Now, I feel younger and more healthier than I have ever been in my life. I give great thanks to my HapKiDo and Kickboxing instructor RJ LoPresti.  He helped me believe in myself again and see that there are things bigger than myself. It’s also okay to live with your heart on your sleeve. Plus, being part of the kickboxing and HapKiDo team, I have learned that we are also family.

Through my journey of making a healthier lifestyle, I am able to help people wherever they are at. Even if the person is unmotivated, I will do my best to get on their level. I will show them that their goals are easier to reach if we work on them together. I love being a kickboxing instructor because when I see people’s reactions when they first start seeing results, it’s priceless.

There’s Still Time to Start Again! – I Love Kickboxing Georgia

Guess what?

Three things:

1) There are 10 days until Christmas.
2) Which also means 16 days left of the year.
3) Which really indicates that there’s 17 days until the start of a new year!

Through all the madness that came with this month, have you been able to put aside some time for yourself? With all the holiday shopping, hostings, parties, gatherings, and running around on top of your regular schedule, maybe everything is slowing down a bit to find time for some personal TLC. By adding a little fitness to your daily routine, your body will benefit from the extra positive energy circulating throughout your veins.

When is the next time you will set aside time to exercise?

Waiting until the start of next year to begin exercising is alright and is possibly a great plan. However, the truth about fitness – the longer you push it off, the longer your body will not want to work out.

Maybe you’re deciding on when or how to start. You may also have a friend or two who are also in the same department. Regardless of where you’re at, there’s still time left in the year to start back up again.
