Boxing gloves are the third most popular hand garb after sock puppets and cookie jars with deceptively small openings. Stuff your paws into some pummeling mittens with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two drop-in Fusion Kickboxing classes (a $40 value) and hand wraps (a $15 value) at Atomic Boxing at its locations in Torrance and San Pedro (a $55 value). This Groupon also includes a bonus class in addition to your drop-in classes as well as one complimentary week access to an online nutrition program.
Atomic Boxing's fat-burning, nonthreatening environment and intense kickboxing classes have helped to bolster bodies for more than 30 years. The two drop-in Fusion Kickboxing classes allow pummelers one-hour of bag-pounding, calorie-singeing fist flinging as they merge the basic principles of martial arts, self-defense, and boot-camp-style exercises. A motivating, professional instructor begins each session with warm-ups and stretches before enveloping the arms' natural wrecking balls in the included hand wraps and rental gloves. With loud music as the soundtrack, launch into a menacing plush cylinder as you banish stress while sicking soon-to-be-toned muscles on felonious calories. Like musketeers and tangoers, two is never enough, so a free bonus class keeps the workout routine running. Both Atomic Boxing locations offer a full schedule of classes, so busy hearts can easily fit in a class between work and an evening of wishing upon every shooting star.
A complimentary week with Atomic Boxing's online, customizable nutrition program helps dieters keep track of their corporeal fuel, count calories, and chart fitness progress. A grading system scores users' own favorite foods and recipes in terms of nutritional value, and a covey of preplanned meal suggestions offers easy and healthy appetite defeaters. Should newly minted kickboxing kings decide to sign up for full membership, entitling them to use the state-of-the-art cardio and weightlifting equipment, this Groupon is good for 50% off the enrollment fee.
Since 2000, Tim and Tom Ryan, twin brothers and the founders of Atomic Boxing, have put their black belts to use and help patrons harness the health benefits of martial arts without the violent aspects of the sport. Fists and feet pop against personal punching bags as personal instructiors motivate students to burn fat and pump up endurance. To set the mood for muscle building and to bolster adrenaline, speakers fill the gym with driving beats or fighter pilots reading their to-do lists. Near the punching bags, free weights clatter at benches and machines target muscle groups. In addition to group sessions, instructors host one-on-one workouts. They also offer the Fusion Revolution—a 6-week program starting every seven weeks which has an 82% success rate of participants losing up to 20 pounds.
