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 of Colorado (a $308 value, including enrollment fee, monthly fee, and one set of wraps). This Groupon is valid at the locations in Littleton, Westminster, Parker, and Lone Tree. You must be at least 18 years old to join.
LA Boxing offers fitness classes in boxing, kickboxing, mixed martial arts, and rhinoceros wrestling. 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.
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 burn upward of 1,000 calories during the total-body routines through a combination of external inspiration and jukes, jabs, and kicks. Both men and women are welcome into 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 membership (subject to availability), as are a set of reusable pro-quality hand wraps and complimentary motivational mumbling from Mickey Goldmill.
UFC Gym’s four fight-centric Denver-area gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, UFC Gym sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym’s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.
