Getting in shape, much like speed-reading Russian literature, requires concentration and the strength to forge ahead through painful, protracted inner monologues. Forge ahead toward fitness with today’s Groupon to Palm Beach Boxing & Mixed Martial Arts.

Staffed by professional fighters of several styles such as professional boxing trainer Lou Martinez and American Top Team Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and UFC trainer Marcos da Matta, Palm Beach Boxing whips pugilists into fighting shape with a crammed calendar of classes. An official Spinning facility, Palm Beach Boxing pushes indoor cyclists to their limits, preparing them for a season of indoor soccer playing and indoor sunbathing. Meanwhile students can roughhouse in their own way with Brazlian jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, kickboxing, wrestling, and other classes of eight to 20 people, for both children six years old and over and adults, employing rows of punching bags, speed bags, and weight machines.
Access to Palm Beach Boxing's cardio machines, free weights, and showers is included with each deal. For guidance with these facilities or bilingual discussions of the best way to roundhouse-kick through lead, the amicable staff speaks both Spanish and English. Most attendees are noncompetitive, but many come to win—members often join teams and some have gone pro. On Tuesday nights MMA professionals from around the area come to train shoulder to shoulder with regular gym-goers.
