VFitness Boxing's trainers believe that boxing is best taught by boxers, which is why all teachers come with their own competitive-boxing backgrounds. They draw on these in-ring experiences during private, 90-minute boxing lessons, where they pass on hard-won knowledge about perfect punching form and impenetrable defensive techniques. Most importantly, they teach the specifics of footwork, making sure their students have strong bases and never get caught on the back foot.
During their indoor and outdoor boot-camp-style group classes, instructors extend their attention to multiple students, helping them torch calories with boxing-style conditioning exercises. Class styles vary—some are coed, some are women-only, and some are kid-friendly—but instructors supply all students with everything they need on the first day, including gloves and the instruction booklet to Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!. They also run advanced group classes, where students sporting headgear, gloves, and hand wraps engage in moderated sparring.
