When boxers accidentally look at their target, it’s called telegraphing, but when they hit opponents in the face with a typewriter, it’s called texting. Communicate properly with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a fitness package at LA Boxing (a $360 total value) that includes:

LA Boxing’s seasoned pugilists help boxers of all ages and dexterity levels jab and juke at blistering speeds in one-hour boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts workouts that strike a harmonious balance between fighting techniques and fitness training. Punching bags ripe for spirited thrashings blossom from the expansive gym’s ceiling as students step into the proverbial ring for a fistfight with their calories. After wrapping their hands and warming up with a series of plyometric exercises, students pay their silhouettes back for years of unsolicited stalking with a series of shadow-boxing exercises during which instructors study burgeoning form and technique. Classes then move on to bag workouts as students slap on gloves and rain aggressive hooks and crosses upon the hapless leather sacks.
LA Boxing’s professional and top amateur instructors ensure that no students wander astray in the forest of hanging bags, allowing workouts to progress at a pace comfortable for everyone involved. A competitive environment pushes all boxers to the brink of their fitness limitations, causing them to spontaneously morph into graceful butterflies or angry killer bees depending on their workout temperaments.
