Some boxing terms entered the lexicon due to older traditions, such as "hitting below the belt," which referred to fighters sparring in trousers, "take a dive," because they usually fought near water, and "saved by the bell," because managers were allowed to participate by throwing at opponents anything that rang.

Boot camps mix up calisthenics and body-weight exercises with interval training, strength training, and plyometrics. During semiprivate boxing classes, trainers teach students outfitted with boxing gloves the right way to punch, step, and block. See the schedule.
K2 Boxing Club
K2 Boxing Club's professional and IBF-rated trainers condition their students for healthy lifestyles and help them develop skills for bouts in the squared circle. They help hone fitness or sparring skills during one-on-one training sessions and group fitness classes, including their boot-camp sessions that merge interval and strength training. During fight-based fitness, guests can either jog while arguing with each other about Plato or participate in MMA classes that dive into the grappling strategies used by UFC fighters. The onsite boxing ring hosts sparring matches, during which any student can improve his or her skills against a real opponent rather than shadow boxers or borrowed art-museum sculptures. But it's not just about the physical skills students learn—the club's friendly family atmosphere aims to shoo away the intimidation factor from classes.
