A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across 19 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
Learning the martial arts does more than just teach people how to break a wooden board with their bare hands. At Sustaire's ATA Martial Arts, students also learn discipline, self-awareness, and focus. Most of the instructors on staff are world or state champions, and each of them have gone through an intensive training period prior to teaching martial arts classes. In these programs, students as young as 4 years old can begin lessons in which they learn physical defensive skills that can give them confidence in many situations. With skills in karate and taekwondo, both children and adults grow stronger and find an outlet for stress that doesn't involve knocking brick walls down with a sledgehammer.
Owner Tomer Litvin discovered his passion for muay thai more than 18 years ago. His amateur exploits in the ring eventually led him to a spot in Fairtex’s world-renowned personal-tutoring program, the chance to go padded fist to padded fist against numerous European champions, and a career as a certified Fairtex instructor. Also holding a brown belt in Brazilian jujitsu, Tomer now channels his love of the martial arts into helming his own school.
In addition to the striking form of muay thai and the grappling art of jujitsu, Tomer and his staff also teach the highly practical self-defense art of krav maga. In these mixed-martial-arts classes, students can put the varied fighting disciplines together to form a comprehensive sport-fighting system useful for defending themselves, sparring, or staging performances of Mortal Kombat: The Musical.
Inside The Jym's health and fitness studio, trainer and owner Jerome Davis helps clients of all athletic levels hone strength, endurance, and coordination with intense boxing workouts. Davis boasts more than 30 years of experience in amateur and professional boxing and a personal-trainer certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. His bare-bones facility houses a variety of simple equipment on which patrons perform strength and cardio exercises before applying their strength in more interactive ways. To hone skills, trainees work with Davis in the ring or confront shadowy demons by jabbing and hugging the gym's collection of emotionless punching bags.
