​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​hi, boxers!  April 23 - April 30.2019  (update 9:30am)

PRICE CHANGES Price page has been updated - small price increase for all dues and drop in/single classes PLUS a streamlined pay button feature - the class description replaces the Buy Now default button.  If you find any errors while using it, please let me know soonest, as they are simple to fix.  Thanks for your continues support at our humble little gym, going into year 13. UPDATE: I can process cards on my phone at the gym now - it took some time to get the process updated with the processing company.  See me if you have any questions. (The other trainers do not have access to this.)

BASICS AND SKILLS  Wednesday 4.24 Basics - FULL (wait list possible). Skills - 9 spaces left (deadline 3pm Wed)  Saturday 4.27 Basics - 6 spaces left. Skills - 8 spaces left (deadline Sat 9am) BOOK HERE ​​ Your goal is to move into Boxing Workout (Level 3) classes as soon as you are ready.  We will "graduate" you as needed. Boxing Workout classes are 11 x per week, with space in all classes.    Note: some classes fill up well before deadline, so please plan in advance - 24 hours or more notice is greatly appreciated.  Wed Basics is limited to 4 and Sat Basics is limited to 8. Skills on both days limited to 16, with the Basics spaces and newer boxers taking priority. If you find you can't attend a session that you have previously booked, please be kind and cancel as soon as possible, as we frequently get a wait list - no shows discouraged. Thanks. 

THURSDAY 5:30PM - NEW CLASS - DEFENSE PRACTICE with Darrell.  Get to this class if you wish to learn the finer points of Defense.  Mouth guard required - you can form it at home or at the gym (we have a kettle). For this basic defense-focussed session, format will be modified as needed based on the mix of students on any given night.  Doors open at 5:15, class starts at 5:30 and ends on or before 6:15.  Open gym times can run concurrently, but for safety reasons, there will be no sparring sessions going on independent of the defense class.  Reminder: the Friday night session is still your best option for sparring practice AND open gym. 

NEXT SPARRING EVENT  "Summer Sweat-er" - tentative date 8.31.19 - much more casual, incentivize people to start training in the summer.  Details to follow. First timers in the ring, this will be a good place to start. We've never done a summer event (because it's pretty warm), but it might be fun to try. 

APRIL VACATIONS  Chris is away 4.17-4.24.  Scott is subbing for me Tuesday 4.26 (5:30 and 6:30) and I am subbing for Chris on Wed 4.27 @ 7pm. 

SIGN IN COMPUTER ​Don't forget to sign in first thing upon arriving at the gym and if you are taking the back-to-back sessions on Mon, Tue or Thur, sign in for both!  For 5 class passes, record the attendance date next to your name on that spreadsheet. Thanks

FRIDAY PM UPDATE Friday, April 26th is the return of A-aron.  Since we offer so few open gym times, take advantage of the relaxed atmosphere and the rotating staff to work on what ever you wish at your own pace.  This is a great night to practice some defense and sparring skills if you are new to it. Mouth guard and separate sparring waiver required - see me for more info. Note: you do not need to spar to attend the open gym session.  Training on hand can give tips - just ask.

RENEWAL REMINDERS I send out a reminder email approximately 5-7 days prior "friendly reminder, renewal due xx.xx, thanks". Can't remember or missed email?  Send me a text (include your name) and I will give you the due date.   Make sure your dues is up to date prior to attending class, especially if you've been away for a while.  For credit card, please use the online option. Cash graciously accepted, of course!  The updated price page is mobile friendly, so you can process the transaction from your phone.  If you get a reminder and are planning to take a break from boxing, please let me know so that I change your account status.  Thanks.
