Kickboxing store to open in Jackson

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Mississippi’s first kickboxing gym is getting fit in Juliep’s old building.

Kevin Roberts is thrilled to see RockBox Fitness come to life at what he thinks is the perfect time.

“Basically, it’s a nightclub meets fight club. It gives you a chance to have fun and hear lots of loud, stuffy music all day long. I know we have a lot of frustration here, so might as well have a little fun,” Roberts said.

The gym will offer personal training and group classes.

“We offer walk-in services. We offer eight packs, in which you can purchase eight courses at a time. We also have unlimited plans, where you become a member. We even have full payment, where you can sign up for an entire year’s subscription, and you get a massive discount. You also have access to meal plans,” Roberts said.

Guests can expect to see a wide variety of classes, even if you’re not planning kickboxing. Roberts said he’s excited to help people live healthier, more confident lives.

“We want people to feel as comfortable as possible. You have gymnasiums, and there are mirrors everywhere. Everyone is watching you. We want you to feel comfortable, at home, and at peace while punching things,” Roberts said.

He said he expects the gymnasium to start in June.
