Our Boxing classes are the ultimate culmination of high-intensity cardio and professional Boxing instruction. The classes are 50-minutes long and cover basic offensive punching techniques and basic defenses, with a blast of ‘boot-camp’ atmosphere.

Over the course of the class, participants may be asked to partner-up with other members or work on a heavy bag for various drills, or hold mitts for each other, but never make contact with one-another. This class is suitable for anyone interested in learning basic Boxing technique or even those who just want to get an intense workout. While some of our members choose to seek additional competition training, most are in it purely for the fitness element.

If you can make it through this hard work you’ll be rewarded with health benefits like a longer life expectancy, less stress and more muscle.

No contact required.
