LA Boxing of Colorado's well-appointed digs fill with cheery encouragement as pride and muscles swell in courses covering boxing, kickboxing, and mixed martial arts. A professional or top-amateur instructor leads each intimate group class with skill and precision, as patrons slice through the air with loaner wrist wraps and gloves. Intimately sized sessions ensure personal attention and manageable casting in boxing-film reenactments, and patrons romp across a full range of fitness equipment to supplement time spent with a bag or in the ring.
The proprietary style of the LA Boxing workout is a mixture of genuine fight training, engaging fitness, and stronger-than-Earth gravity. Patrons burn upward of 1,000 calories during the total-body routines through a combination of external inspiration and jukes, jabs, and kicks. Both men and women are welcomed into the ring, where they'll learn new techniques and methods to break a sweat without wearing the same outfit as the sun to a cocktail party.
UFC Gym’s four fight-centric Denver-area gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, UFC Gym sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym’s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.
The instructors are approachable and helpful and if you're a newbie, don't let inexperience deter you from even trying it out.Ciel L., Yelp, 10/30/10
