  • Be smart about the location of the gym relative to your home/work in relation to your fitness needs  - our gym is a long commute from some locations and you won't realistically attend regularly
    • Consistent training of at least 2 days per week leads to improvement in this sport
  • Boxing is a very specific skill set, so Boxing Basics is required for all first-time boxers - class descriptions, registration and calendar: classes&calendar 
  • ​Boxing takes a bit of commitment to see results....be ready and willing to spend time learning the skill 
  • Experienced Boxers can skip Boxing Basics; but please follow our easy registration process and I will get back to you with recommendations for your first class. Sorry, no walk-ins.  Everyone must register in advance.
