The fitness studio that punches well above its weight
When you throw your first punch, you feel a rush of adrenaline. Landing that punch sounds like a firework exploding, and it feels like a lightning bolt strikes right through you. The more you train, the more powerful the surge.

This is the kind of energy Crystal Gibson was eager to harness. She realised the corporate world wasn't for her because she was only happy when she was talking about her Muay Thai training. So, in 2014, she started Brisbane Fitness Empire and she's never looked back.

It's no surprise that Boxing, Kickboxing and Muay Thai are having their moment. The gritty workout has gone mainstream for one very obvious reason: you're going to get an incredible full-body workout. But what sets Brisbane Fitness Empire apart from the rest, you ask? They're a family-owned and operated boutique studio, specifically designed to work with fewer people to get better results.

Owner and head trainer Crystal said commercial gyms were happy to take on bulk memberships, but they have no accountability for people's weight loss or fitness goals. Brisbane Fitness Empire is the opposite. They are committed to helping you achieve your goals.

Small classes mean more focus on the individual's needs. Your techniques will be corrected by a professional, and you'll be made to feel like you're a part of their family. After all, it's not every day a woman owns her own studio where she's the personal trainer, the class trainer, and the fight trainer.

There's no denying we all have to start somewhere, and we're all still on our own journeys. Especially during these challenging and unknown times. Crystal is proud of her clients and the way they welcome new members into the fold, share their journeys, and encourage one another.

"I cannot count the amount of times I've had a client burst into tears in a good way!" she said.

"They finally reached a goal or have lost an amazing number of centimetres. When a fighter wins their fight, the feeling is indescribable.

"You feel so proud for them and for yourself. All that blood, sweat, and tears has paid off. You know that win is going to change that person's life."

Crystal said there was never a dull moment training her clients.

"The days are filled with so much fun, and so many amazing achievements."

BFE offers personal training sessions at their studio in Stafford, in the comfort of your home with their mobile trainer, Jess, or online via Zoom. Your session is tailored to you and can include Boot Camp, Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Strength and Ccardio.

The Muay Thai and kickboxing classes are full of friendly faces who love to train hard and are willing to help out. At these classes you can learn the correct techniques while getting fit and having fun. There is also a stretching and core class, which is a great way to ease your body into a more robust exercise routine.

If you're still not sure what to expect, BFE has an online kickboxing course for beginners. If you're ready to dive in, Tuesday and Saturdays are the best classes for newcomers. If you have a little experience up your sleeve, head along to the Monday and Wednesday night Muay Thai kickboxing classes.

Ready to take that first step? Why not get in touch with Crystal today and see how she can help you on your journey, whatever that may look like. You can find more information about Crystal, the classes available, and the gym on the website here.
