Girl Fight Fitness was founded in 2014 by Amanda Gonzalez-Barone based on her observations and experiences as a fitness trainer. She wanted to provide a fun, female-friendly environment for the pursuit of fitness and health through strength, cardio, and kickboxing workouts.  

The first location started in Burnt Hills, NY with six punching bags, a paper check-in system, and Amanda wearing all the hats -- from teaching all the classes to running the business to cleaning the toilets!  

We are so happy that so many women love Girl Fight and have helped us grow. Now we have a team of awesome, skilled, and friendly trainers to help you get in the best shape ever!  

Whether you are a beginning exerciser or just looking for a change of pace for your current program, Girl Fight workouts provide a combination of calorie-torching boxing moves and muscle-toning strength drills. Workouts are fast, fun...and addictive!


The philosophy we use for designing exercise routines is to engage as many muscle groups as possible using dynamic movements that mimic the way the body functions in daily life.  

"What good is an exercise if it doesn't make us stronger throughout the day?" says Amanda. "The more we engage principle body movements in exercise, the better we move, walk, lift, and bend. And that's just everyday stuff. This approach benefits sports immensely -- whether you're a runner, triathlete, or play pickup basketball, you can improve using this kind of training."  

Hard work is fundamental, but so is having fun. "It's hard enough to get motivated to work out. And if you HATE it, it's so much easier to blow it off. Workouts should be physically challenging, but they should also be fun to do. If you enjoy what you're doing, you're more likely to make it a life change and stick with it for good." 


We like to goof around. We like to have fun. We like to enjoy our workouts and not feel like we're being tortured. If you're looking for a supportive and welcoming environment to kick some butt, Girl Fight is it!
