During the session

On May 14, a women-only Kickboxing Gym in the Dark opened in Temmonkan, Kagoshima City.

It is the second branch of the kickboxing gym FIGHT CLUB Kagoshima, which opened last October in the Nakamachi Core Mall. Since the first personal gym has been doing well with over 180 members, they decided to open the second branch as a group-based gym. By dimming the lights and making the gym dark, the company says, “members can concentrate on their training without worrying about their surroundings.” Fees are 7,700 yen for four sessions a month, 8,800 yen for eight, and 11,000 yen for a full-time membership with unlimited participation. One session is 40 minutes.

The gym has ten trainers on staff. They aim to create “a gym where beginners and those who have no exercise habit can enjoy a casual approach,” and says, “Although sessions are group-based, you can take a break, even during a round of exercise with no pressure.” In June, they plan to add yoga, butt toning, and other classes.

Opening hours: 10:00 a.m. – the end of the last session (starts at 9:00 p.m.).
