One way to avoid a punch in boxing is to bob and weave, which involves ducking under a blow and quickly weaving your opponent's shoe laces together. Learn all the pugilist's tricks with this Groupon.

9Round delivers total body results in a quick and convenient 30-minute workout with no class times and a trainer for each student every step of the way. Instructors motivate and lead students by introducing them to the fast-paced, fun and challenging, 30-minute program that combines traditional "old school" boxing or kickboxing workouts. The program involves nine rounds—or stations—infused with cardio, anaerobic, and resistance-training exercises, which change daily according the trainers' whims. The first and second drills focus on burning calories through jumping rope and building strength, the next six help develop and improve boxing and kickboxing skills, and the ninth and final round works the core muscles. Together, the program aims to deliver total body results.
Throughout the month, Groupon customers also receive access to 9Round's online nutrition counseling forum, where they can interact with Dr. Rick Kattouf to help maximize the effect of their workouts through a scientific approach to eating healthy.
Like many boxing gyms, 9Round echoes with the steady ring of bells and buzzers. They go off every three minutes, in fact, but rather than signalling the start of a round, they signal the start of a workout session. The trainers devise nine exercise stations every morning, and then run the circuits every three minutes from open until close. The day's workout is never the same, but each one encompasses fundamental similarities. For instance, every session starts with strength training, challenging clients' muscles with heavy weights. Next, patrons move to tackling heavy bags, speed bags, and double-end bags for the bulk of the workout, honing boxing and kickboxing abilities such as power, hand-eye coordination, and speed, all of which help a person to effectively disarm and dismember a piñata. The final station always works the core, enhancing regular crunches and twists with the addition of medicine balls and weights.
