Boxing is the only sport so revered that it was given its own Commonwealth holiday, a 24-hour fight fest intended to balance out the peaceful tidings of Christmas with a healthy dose of aggression. Deck the halls and your unsuspecting neighbors with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get two months of membership and unlimited boxing-fitness classes at Fight Club University (up to a $120 value).
Fight Club University's daily forecast calls for closed-fist flurries during high-energy group fitness classes designed to train boxers of all skill levels without subjecting them to real-life beat downs. A team of professional and certified boxing trainers with more than 30 years of experience lead intense, non-violent workouts designed to chisel arms and stomachs while leaving faces largely intact. This distinctive program is modeled after the rigorous pre-fight training methods of professional boxers, minus the raw-dodo-egg smoothies, with workouts that challenge students regardless of shape or stamina. A flexible weekday schedule of boxing-fitness classes can accommodate even the fullest of day planners. Enthusiastic students can expect to slam away up to 1,000 calories in each workout, which utilizes a well-stocked training warehouse and well-spaced punching bags to avoid accidental knockouts.
Other combat-oriented classes include training in the self-defensive art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, intense sessions of Survival Fit mixed martial arts, and extreme tire workouts designed to prepare students for mutinous monster-truck attacks. Open gym hours on Fridays and Saturdays allow members to practice grapples and punches on their own with minimal instruction.
Fight Club University
Youth, amateur, and professional boxing. MMA fighting and jujitsu. Fitness bootcamps centered on throwing a good punch, and classes that help you find your fighting stance. Fight Club University's team of professional boxers, MMA fighters, and personal trainers teach all these skills and more, as well as helping develop self-confidence, strength, and common sense in young people through the S.T.R.O.N.G. program. Newly toned and slim patrons strut out of the gym past a forest of equipment that includes heavy bags, medicine balls, and jump ropes. Instructors suggest that the courses can help bolster overall health, a sense of timing, and hand-eye coordination.
