Member of the Month: Travis Boughan
At the beginning of September, Travis Baughan bought a Groupon for a month of kickboxing at Easton Arvada. He wanted to get back in shape and thought that kickboxing would be an engaging way to drop a few pounds. Since September, Travis has taken 100 classes and has received his orange shirt in Muay Thai. He has also lost weight, which was his initial goal. His advice for new students is: “Push yourself to go to the gym. If you don’t see improvement: keep training and trust me you will.” Read the full article to find out more about Travis!

Kickboxing Enrichment Program
ETC Arvada will be holding its first session of the Easton Enrichment program for Kickboxing and Muay Thai students. Classes will begin on February 1st. There will be two different groups in the program based upon a student’s shirt rank. The first group will be for White and Yellow Shirt students. Each session will be a deep dive into the Muay Thai curriculum and building confidence in pad holding. The class will be limited to 6 students and will meet for 8 weeks on Saturday at 1:30 pm. The second group will be for Orange and Green Shirt students. Each session will focus on advanced pad holding and the introduction of sparring into training. The class will be limited to 4 students and will meet for 8 weeks on Sunday at 10:00 am. A $100 deposit is required for the program. For each session a student attends, a relative portion of that deposit will be credited back to their account. Credit can only be applied to future monthly membership payments. If a student attends all 8 enrichment classes, they will have the full amount credited back to their account to be applied to future monthly payments.
