Owner Travis Watson is passionate about his iLoveKickboxing studio.
“It’s a place where members will find a community filled with positive, inspiring men and women who are working to make their bodies and their lives better every day,” Watson said. “It’s a place for accountability where our instructors truly care about our members’ goals.”
Watson, 35, opened iLoveKickboxing May 25 at 14570 River Rd., Suite 135, Carmel. Watson said it’s the first franchise in Indiana.
“iLoveKickboxing is one of the fastest, if not the fastest-growing, fitness franchise in the world,” said Watson, adding there are approximately 400 studios opened or in development in the U.S., Canada and Peru.
Watson lives approximately one mile from the studio.
“It’s a brand new location, so it’s a phenomenal facility,” said Watson, whose wife Julie grew up in Carmel. “It’s fun to have a community of small business owners.”
Watson, who has seven employees, has classes starting at 7 a.m. and ending at 7:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Saturday hours are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The studio is closed on Sunday. Watson said two to four instructors are on the mat during the classes to make sure proper technique is being used.
