Like a fevered drum solo, gloves crack against a shuddering speed bag. In the corner, the familiar whoosh-slap of a jump rope sounds off. And inside the ring, shoes quietly shuffle against the canvas as a pair of fighters square off. Such is the scene each day at It's On! Boxing/MMA, where aspiring fighters and fitness seekers alike convene to prepare for a bout, hone their self-defense skills, or put themselves through a core-tightening, calorie-burning workout. The gym offers training programs for kids 5–13, as well as a core rotation of adult classes that include basic boxing, muay thai kickboxing, Brazilian jujitsu, and boxing classes designed specifically for women.
