Representatives of “I Love Kick Boxing LIC,” who aim to open a facility on the ground floor at 45-45 Center Boulevard, went before Community Board 2 last week seeking a “physical cultural establishment” permit as part of their quest to open in the first or second quarter next year.

New York City requires all health clubs, gyms or spas to obtain the permit in order to make sure that massage parlors or other undesirable establishments don’t open.

Frederick Becker, the attorney representing I Love Kick Boxing LIC, said the venue will focus primarily on physical fitness.

He said the 2,800-square foot facility would essentially be like “aerobics on steroids.”

Becker said the facility will be part of a well established franchise (see corporate website). There are branches throughout the US, including four in Queens.

The work outs, according to the corporate Facebook page, typically involve punching and kicking bags. The website said that participants learn techniques used by pro fighters like jabs, crosses, hooks, roundhouse kicks and front kicks, according to the corporate website. It also involves a series of exercises.

The facility would not be a venue where sparring or fights take place as there are no plans for a ring, according to Becker. Its focus is on fitness, conditioning and weight loss.

Becker said that the owner plans is to operate between 6 am and 10 pm (Mon-Friday) and 7am to 2 pm on weekends.

He said that the owner is working with the landlord and acoustic engineers to protect the residents from noise.

The facility will primarily provide classes—catering to groups of about 30 people. Becker said that each class is about 45-50 minutes long.

sounds like fun! Hoping the class schedule caters to people with day jobs, vs midday weekday timeslots!
