Without boxing, dabblers in the martial arts are restricted to throwing clay pots through windows or finger painting army tanks. Give your fists a well-rounded education with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 30-day membership, hand wraps, and use of necessary equipment at LA Boxing (a $109 value). Your Groupon is redeemable at one of three North Carolina locations in Raleigh, Cary, and Durham.
LA Boxing offers fitness classes in boxing, kickboxing, 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 usually burn from 800 to more than 1,000 calories during these total-body routines, which combine external inspiration with 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 30-day 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 small, 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. Check the schedules for Raleigh, Cary, and Durham for more information.
