Boston Boxing & Fitness
Most boxers train to punch an opponent in the face, but some train to knock out fat instead. At Boston Boxing & Fitness, former fighters turned certified instructors lead classes focused on both the competitive and fitness aspects of the sport. Coaches design each course to tone specific body areas, teach students to spar, or improve the body's overall fitness through strength and conditioning sessions. The studio also runs ladies-only boxing classes, allowing women to perfect jabs in an encouraging, dude-free environment. Classes run five days a week, with the gym hosting weekend sparring sessions and amateur team-oriented fight nights. When not in class, trainers and students alike also supplement their training with the gym's 1500 pounds of free weights, athletic training, and fire pits designed for the ritualistic sacrifice of old gloves.
