We are Powerhouse Kickboxing.
Powerhouse Kickboxing (formerly G-Force Kickboxing) is the only all-female studio in Hamilton, Ontario that trains female-identifying girls, teens and women of all ages.
For the past 10 years, we have trained them to jab, cross, uppercut, roundhouse kick and everything in between! It's been an honour to watch our students develop their skills, gain confidence in the process, connect with other people in the class, and create life-long friendships.
If you attend elementary, middle or high school, we have multiple class times that don't interfere with a school schedule. Please view our schedule here. Women are also welcome, regardless of your training level — whether beginner or advanced, we promise you will get a fantastic workout and enjoy all the benefits of a kickboxing class.
Meet your Lead Instructor: Meghan Gilbert
Teaching is at the very core of me. I have been in a teaching role since I was 14 – as a dance teacher, a secondary school history teacher, and now a kickboxing instructor.
I have turned my attention to teaching girls and women because, frankly, there’s a need. There are so many things in the world that erode their confidence, and my job is to build it back up.
After every tiring kick and punch, and through every sweaty class, my students leave with their heads held high, a smile on their faces and a sense of empowerment, accomplishment and confidence. They are a FORCE in this world and I celebrate their achievement every day. Hope to see you in class soon.
