When boxers accidentally look at their target, it’s called telegraphing, but when they hit opponents in the face with a typewriter, it’s called texting. Communicate properly with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a one-month membership to Rhino’s Boxing in Vista (a $194 value, including the $125 enrollment fee). This Groupon includes unlimited access to scheduled classes and use of gloves and rope. Rhino's Boxing requires all boxers to wear hand wraps, which can be purchased at the gym for an $11 fee.
A flurry of jabs, hooks, and uppercuts is always in the forecast at Rhino’s Boxing’s 5,000-square-foot facility, where beginners and pros alike can throw calories against the ropes in classes that impart focus, discipline, and proper techniques. Skilled instructors don weathered gloves and whip sparring students into fighting shape, leading coed cardio workouts wherein adults and kids aged 6 and older can take out their stresses on punching bags stuffed with poorly graded school essays and traffic lights that refuse to turn green. Boxers with dreams of one day hoisting heavyweight belts can step into the USA Boxing legal-size ring with the amateur team or can conduct their own private workouts five days a week. The schedule also hosts open sparring on Tuesday and Friday nights, during which self-disciplined students can use the ring for practice or settle long-standing disputes over who should take out the trash.
