Tapout Fitness is a fitness studio located in Woodland Hills. This boutique fitness studio offers cardio boxing, kickboxing, TRX, circuit training & self-defense/martial arts classes (for both adults & kids). They even have yoga classes, which is perfect because you’ll want to stretch out your muscles after taking a few classes here! 🙂
Tapout Fitness is located in a shopping plaza between Topanga Canyon Blvd & Canoga Avenue, just a few doors down from Pure Barre. There’s free parking in the garage or you can do street parking. The studio is spacious & offers complimentary lockers to store your gear.
So how are the classes? They were awesome! I tried out three different types & I worked up a sweat in each one of ‘em.
This is a good class to take for first-timers at Tapout Fitness. We started with a basic warm-up & then moved on to the heavy bags for different boxing drills. Daniel, the class instructor, really covered all of the basics & made sure everyone was using proper technique. The class ended with stretching & also a post-workout selfie with Daniel & Elissa (owner of Tapout Fitness).
I took this class on New Year’s Eve morning. Let me just say that Coach Ben put me through the paces, so I really earned all of the food that I ate New Year’s Eve night! 😉
The video above is just a snippet of the exercises we went through. We did a ton of kickboxing combo drills, where we would punch, jab & then kick the heavy bag. All in all, it was a tough but very satisfying workout. As you can see from the picture below, everyone in the class was happy it was over & ready to ring in the New Year! Although I joked with one of the ladies that I would probably have to take a nap & then watch the crystal ball drop.
#MamaSaidKnockYouOut! 🥊 Thx #TapoutFitness #WoodlandHills for inviting me to get my boxing on today. 👊 #NYE . . . Had so much fun punching my way through the last day of 2016!

You would think a 30-minute class wouldn’t be really challenging given the time constraints, but oh no – this is definitely a full-body workout. A lot of these classes are offered at 12 noon, which is perfect for those looking to fit a workout in during their lunch hour. Jason was my instructor for this class & he utilized TRX straps & the Terra-Core (which reminded me of a Bosu Ball in the way that we used it but it’s built slightly different).
We used the Terra-Core to warm-up & then the TRX to workout our arms & core. Then we went back to the Terra-Core for burpees, mountain climbers, sit-ups & a whole bunch of other things. The 30 minutes goes by quick but at the end of it, I felt like I did so much in a short period of time.
For those who are looking to kick their workout up a notch, you should definitely try out Tapout Fitness. The first class is free & they do a great job of welcoming new people to their gym. I really enjoy this boutique style studio as opposed to a “big box” gym where you feel kind of lost. According to Elissa, there are a lot of moms who take classes here & the studio clientele is a nice mix of both men & women. So ladies…make sure to check this place out!
