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.
Around the globe, each of Gracie Barra's more than 300 schools shares a common curriculum: Brazilian jiu jitsu. The school's instructors instill the traditional martial art throughout the world, venturing beyond Brazil to nearly every continent on Earth. At the McAllen branch, the instructors possess the same International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation certifications as their colleagues across the globe, and call on their training in the Gracie Barra curriculum to teach the martial-arts technique to all ages and experience levels. Additionally, they schedule programs such as muay thai and women's fight-fitness classes that incorporate self-defense tactics for beating up unwanted calories.
With a combination of intense resistance training and martial arts, Savage Camp's trainers transform bodies. "Professional athletes have two hands, two feet, one head, breathe air, eat food, drink water," says the head trainer. "I can be as fit as they are." He encourages his trainees to approach their own fitness with a similar mindset, striving to do their very best and they work the heavy bags, strive to master one-armed pushups, or do aerial crunches with their legs wrapped around a bag for support.
