Although feeling the burn during a workout is generally a good sign, feeling the burn while sitting on the sofa means your sofa is in the fireplace. Engage in controlled, constructive body burning with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 30-day membership, hand wraps and use of necessary equipment from LA Boxing (a $109 value) good at any of its three San Diego-area locations:
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 may burn from 800 to 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 one-month trial membership, as are a set of reusable pro-quality hand wraps and complimentary motivational mumbling from Burgess Meredith (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 necessary for supplementing time spent with a bag or in the ring.
Cityvoters placed LA Boxing as second for Best Boxing in 2010. Four Yelpers give the San Diego location three stars and four give the Carlsbad location four stars. More than 880 Facebookers like the San Marcos location.
- Great workout place. Instructors and staff are skilled and friendly. – D L., Carlsbad location, Yelp, 7/28/09
- You may think this gym is focused on just fighting... but it's really focused on you to become a healthier person by using fight training as a catalyst. Most of the classes are a balance of striking a punching bag and cross-fit exercises. – Mellow F., San Diego location, Yelp, 12/17/10
