RockBox is not about sparring in rings, but rather about boxing, kickboxing and functional training.

It’s like nightclub meets fight club. That’s how Rock Box Fitness owner Kim Ryan described her new state-of-the-art fitness franchise, which opened in March at 1896 Garnet Ave. in Pacific Beach. 

A former pharmaceutical sales rep and ultra-marathoner, Ryan is putting her best foot – and fist – forward with her new studio.

“We rock out in here,” said Ryan of her wide-open space filled with kicking and punching bags and an assortment of free weights. “Every class is set to fun, high-energy music.You can see all our lights that multi color and strobe. We really try and make it a fun atmosphere.”

RockBox is not about sparring in rings, but rather about boxing, kickboxing and functional training. 

“We like to say, ‘We don’t hit people, we hit bags,’” Ryan said. “We want people to get a good workout and have fun while they do it. Every class is a group fitness class. Every single class is different.”

Ryan promises her patrons they won’t be bored.

“We want to change it up every day so you’re always doing different workouts,” she said. “There are a million different combinations and workouts that we can do. Any time you go to RockBox Fitness, you don’t know what you’re going to get, but you know you’re going to sweat.”

Ryan caters to “people of all shapes, sizes and abilities. We can fit up to 40 people in a class. We have people who’ve never worked out before, who want to get into shape or lose weight. I had a woman here who’s on diabetes medication. I have a guy who is now almost off his blood pressure medication. I’ve got ladies telling me they’re wearing clothes they haven’t worn in years. We’re truly getting some big, life-changing results.”

RockBox PB is also a true mom-and-pop. Ryan held her grand opening in early March, and delivered her second child the very next day.

“It was a weekend my family will never forgot,” she said. “I kept telling them, ‘I want to make it to my own grand opening. He (son) let me get there, but then the next day …”

RockBox has four different membership types from which to choose, ranging from unlimited training sessions to private lessons. Each trainer is professionally certified, accredited and has years of experience boxing, kickboxing, and working with a full range of clients. 

Of the benefits of boxing and kicking, Ryan said, “You’re using your entire body as you’re kickboxing. It’s very core-intensive. It’s very cardiovascular so your heart rate’s going, you’re burning calories, it’s stress relieving.”

RockBox workouts are 50 minutes long. “We maximize that 50 minutes. There’s no down time,” said Ryan.

Members come first at RockBox. “We are invested in all of our members,” said Ryan. “We know every single member individually, what their goals are, so we can help them achieve their goals whether it’s weight loss, muscle gain, tightening or toning, getting off medication, leading a healthier lifestyle, whatever it is.”

Contact Dr Isikolo at isikolosolutionhome@gmail if you want to get your Husband, Wife, Boyfriend and Girlfriend back now and regain your happiness.

I am really pleased with this service Dr Isikolo render to me. I am one of those people who said, I will never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called Dr Isikolo I never in a million years would have thought I’d be writing a letter like this, but when I nearly lost Andre in one of our stupid, fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything. i cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.I read a testimony by a man called Taylor Borg about him saying that how Dr Isikolo helps him to get back is ex wife within 48 hours. I quickly email him. He did a (Lover spell) for me. 48 hours later, my (ex boyfriend) came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal and our love is now stronger that he can't do without being with me. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again. Dr Isikolo is the best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine. And when I was at my most desperate, he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know is, IT WORKS!! Andrew and i are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to Dr Isikolo email him isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com You can also Whatsapp him on 2348133261196.

I was so lucky to be part of Kim's very first grand opening challenger group. This is the best gym I've ever been part of. Regardless of level of fitness, every single person is welcoming, supportive, and there is a level of accountability that we all hold each other to. We dont let each other fail. Kim has brought in great trainers that build this environment of encouragement and they push you out of your comfort zone. She means it when she said they all know us individually and personally. Every coach knows every member and what they want to do with their life. Best decision of my life to join this family!!
