It may sound like an oxymoron, but sometimes it's possible to find inner peace through intense activity. At least, that's what Temple Boxing aims to help its students achieve. Here, trainers create an environment completely free of outside distractions, including judges who only use the ring to discard their peanut shells. Such a focused atmosphere enables exercisers to zero in on their workouts and the targets in front of them, specifically during boxing classes. Punchers of all levels can build up their boxing techniques and improve their strength and conditioning.

Justin Smith's athletic resume is pretty impresive. He's a three-time NCAA champion, and recipient of 2005's Division III player of the year award. He's a Major League Lacrosse player for the New York Lizards, Chesapeake Bayhawks, and Philadelphia Barrage, with whom he won two world championships. While all these achievements summarize Justin Smith's lacrosse career, they leave out one of the most important parts: teacher. During private and semi-private sessions at Annapolis Lacrosse Lessons, Justin draws on his pro skills to nurture the sport's budding talents. Through a series of intensive drills, he helps students refine their stickwork, master dodging defense, and boost their speed with a host of teaching methods, including using a radar gun or having students study tapes of old road-runner cartoons.
