Columbia Boxing and Fitness’ head trainer, Derwin “TNT” Powers, draws on 35 years of certified personal training and professional boxing experience to lead students through his self-designed circuit-training program. Class attendees burn calories at 10 workstations, completing activities such as jumping rope, maneuvering a medicine ball, and executing punching drills faster than a caffeinated kangaroo. Workouts change from session to session, helping participants develop stronger musculature while enhancing cardiovascular endurance and agility. Exercisers typically see visible results in about three weeks, or the amount of time needed to train a parrot to imitate to the sound of a boxing bell.
