Energetic circuit-training classes feature 30–50 students slipping into self-provided gloves and wraps before pummeling 25 bags. During up to 90-minute classes, participants split time between fighting gravity with TRX-suspension exercises and engaging in dynamic kettlebell workouts designed to target disparate muscle groups. Throughout the calorie-eradicating sessions, laser-light shows and pulsing music course through the atmosphere, rendering it more sporty, musical, and light-intensive than Einstein playing the violin while riding a bicycle.
The boxing camp for kids aged 11–16 starts Saturday, May 4, and runs 10 weeks, with sessions every Saturday from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Gloves and hand wraps are required and can be purchased at the gym.
