Boxing is an ancient sport that was created so two men could determine whose knuckles were more knuckly up close. For $48, today's side deal gets you four individualized boxing training sessions lasting 60 minutes each at Mendez Boxing (a $100 value). Located on W. 26th Street, Mendez Boxing is a premier East Coast boxing club that trains both professionals and amateurs.
Mendez Boxing caters to men, women, and children who are looking to benefit from a sport that requires all-around conditioning. A professional boxing trainer will supervise your sessions and teach proper techniques such as the jab, uppercut, stick and move, rope a dope, and the tap tap turn into a graceful swan. Boxing is an excellent way to burn calories, enjoy a high-intensity workout, and obtain possession of the remote control from grandma's power grip. Each workout will get more intense, which will help build your endurance and self-confidence. Today's deal focuses on boxing skills, and is less concerned about getting into the ring to settle the beef you have with your roast-beef butcher. Call ahead to reserve training times with your trainer.

- Totally unassuming from the outside, you take the elevator up to the 5th floor...elevator opens, and you immediately feel like Rocky. From the folks bobbing and weaving in front of punching bags, to the fellas in the ring swinging at eachother, this is the place to get a great workout, relieve some stress, and to feel great. – NYC311, Citysearch
- Every so often I run into a Yelp dilemma. I find a place that I absolutely love and want to share with the world, only to realize that what I love most is that the place is a well kept secret. – Adam Z., Yelp
