Youth, amateur, and professional boxing. MMA fighting and jujitsu. Fitness bootcamps centered on throwing a good punch, and classes that help you find your fighting stance. Fight Club University's team of professional boxers, MMA fighters, and personal trainers teach all these skills and more, as well as helping develop self-confidence, strength, and common sense in young people through the S.T.R.O.N.G. program. Newly toned and slim patrons strut out of the gym past a forest of equipment that includes heavy bags, medicine balls, and jump ropes. Instructors suggest that the courses can help bolster overall health, a sense of timing, and hand-eye coordination.

With two separate studios—one equipped with nine poles for exotic dance classes and one reserved for fitness classes—Pulse Dance & Fitness Studio facilitates an atmosphere of ease, enjoyment, and confidence. In the pole studio, instructors lead women through the basics of pole dancing during the introductory class, and ramp up the raciness in French Kiss Chair Strip Tease classes. Abs N Bootie and Hip Hop Cardio classes in the dance studio turn fitness into a fun and rhythmic dance romp. And before or after classes, students can spend some time socializing in the Pulse Ultra Lounge, cooling down with a smoothie or perusing the in-house lingerie store.
