Nonantum Boxing Club's seven instructors have countless riveting stories from the ring. Nico Gargaro can detail a blow by blow of his 2009 Rocky Marciano Tournament victory, and Nathan Busa can tell of duking it out in the All-Marine Tournament at Camp LeJeune during his four-year stint as a sergeant. It's these experiences the team draws on during the center's daily one-hour boxing conditioning classes, which not only train students of all experience levels in boxing fundamentals, but also incorporate cardio and strength training. At private and semi-private lessons, trainers refine each student's technique, giving the student skills they can hone during the open gym hours the club holds six days a week. Kids can participate in youth classes every Saturday morning, and early risers can stop by at 5:30 a.m. three days a week for heavy bag conditioning, which is more effective than waking up early to punch out the paperboy.

No one is born with the ability to do a roundhouse kick, but—under the guidance of the sage instructors at Giroux Bros. Martial Arts—most can learn. Classes for both kids and adults are centered around Chun Kuk Do, a well-rounded style of karate founded by Chuck Norris and made famous by his performances in blockbuster films and bestselling flipbooks. Students learn to kick, chop, and block from instructors who hold black belts, including founder Steve Giroux, a 6th-degree black belt and regular contributor to the martial arts community at large.

More than three decades have passed since head instructor Bobby Giordano founded American Martial Arts Center. Giordano spent that time earning not one, but five black belts, and learning the ropes of muay thai and jeet kune do. The former bodyguard spreads his expertise to the masses through private martial-arts classes and enlists a staff of talented instructors to amplify the effect. Together they expound practical self-defense techniques designed to preempt attacks in the ring, on the streets, and in grocery-store aisles the day before Thanksgiving. Teachers whip students into shape during mixed-martial-arts, muay thai, Brazilian jujitsu, and kickboxing classes, which are all practiced in a fun, safe environment.

Kids and teens warrant their own kid-friendly branch of the business. Whereas adult classes aim for fitness and skill, the kids’ sessions emphasize values such as self-confidence and self-discipline, which come in handy when betting a punching bag that you won’t punch it.

During afternoons at Together in Motion, children, accompanied by their parents, safely crawl through tunnels, practice somersaults, or explore a Parthenon made completely out of padded building blocks atop a cushioned floor. Evenings, however, turn the tables, allowing grownups to take over the space to fling dodgeballs at opponents or rehearse martial arts strikes in time for their kids' Bring Your Ninja to School Day. Weekend nights find thumping dance soundtracks traveling through the rooms, as black-light parties for teens and tweens celebrate birthdays and raise funds for nonprofits.

Though they admit disparate age groups, these classes and events provide a venue for guests to connect through movement. Together in Motion's facility rents its rooms to independent organizations—Social Boston Sports and Arlington Martial Arts among them—that encourage exercise and camaraderie. From the Latin-inspired beats of adult-centric Zumba classes to the musical motor-skill activities of Movin' Groovin' Tots, all of the programs foster both communal support and a healthy sense of self-confidence.
