-THE QUICK & DIRTY
› BOXING TO THE BEAT IN A DARK ROOM IS A BEAUTIFUL COCKTAIL OF CARDIO, STRENGTH, AND MEDITATION. IT’S AS ADDICTING AS EXERCISE CAN BE. OUR MANTRA: IF WE CAN GET YOU SWEATING WITH GOOSEBUMPS, YOUR FITNESS WON’T EVER BE AN ISSUE AGAIN.
› OUR CLASSES ARE SPLIT INTO 3-MINUTE ROUNDS, LIKE A BOXING MATCH. YOU’LL SPEND 50% OF YOUR TIME ON OUR WATER BOXING BAG (THAT’S SOFTER ON THE JOINTS), AND OUR CUSTOMIZED WEIGHT BENCHES.
› WHY BOXING? BOXING BURNS MORE CALORIES THAN RUNNING ON A TREADMILL….AND IT DOESN’T SUCK. IT’S ALSO ONE OF THE FEW CARDIO EXERCISES THAT BUILDS MUSCLE WHILE TORCHING FAT.
› BECAUSE BOXING IS AN EXERCISE, SKILL, SPORT, SELF-DEFENSE, AND SWEET SCIENCE, WE OFFER SEVERAL DIFFERENT RIDES DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE. YOU CAN TAKE A CLASS IN THE ROWDYROOM (IN THE DARK), OR YOU CAN TAKE A SEMI-PRIVATE CLASS (MITT & HIIT), OR GO STRAIGHT TO PRIVATE TRAINING AND BRING A FRIEND FOR FREE. CHECK THE “CLASSES” PAGE TO SEE A COMPLETE DESCRIPTION OF ALL OF THEM.

Like every sport and workout, your frst time may be frustrating. Boxing is a skill and, while it’s incredibly addicting, it takes time to cultivate that addiction. 🙂
