What You'll Get
Though often regarded as instinct, fighting is actually a skill acquired in the womb, where all babies must defeat their evil selves in order to be born. Further prenatal training with today's deal: for $49, you get a one-month membership to LA Boxing (a $119 value). This Groupon is good for the LA Boxing location in Hoboken, and the normal enrollment fee of $249 is also waived. Kids under the age of 18 are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.
LA Boxing offers fitness classes in boxing, kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and mixed martial arts. The proprietary style of the LA Boxing workout is a mixture of genuine fight training, engaging fitness, and stronger-than-Earth gravity. Quasi-boxers and martial artists can burn from 800 to more than 1,000 calories during these total-body routines, which combine external inspiration and jukes, jabs, and kicks. Both men and women are welcome in the ring, where they'll learn new techniques and methods to blissfully break into a sweat in an energetic group setting. Gloves are provided during the month-long trial membership, as are a set of reusable pro-quality hand wraps and complimentary motivational mumbling from Mickey Goldmill (all three subject to availability).
A professional or top-amateur instructor leads each intimate group class with skill and precision. Session sizes are kept to a minimum, ensuring personal attention and manageable battle-royale numbers. Gyms also offer a full range of fitness equipment to supplement time spent with a bag or in the ring.
Although LA Boxing has few reviews, it was featured on Bravo's Real Housewives of New Jersey.
