Owners and Golden Glove veterans Tim and John Sullivan embrace traditional training techniques at their studio, where men and women of varying ages can safely hone their boxing skills. A dangling arsenal of speed bags and heavy bags surrounds a blue-matted boxing ring, which greets visitors as they enter from the main lobby. Guests can refine their pugilistic capabilities at the punching bags or use the collection of small hand weights to develop the upper body strength needed to open pickle jars with one finger. The gym hosts 60-minute classes Monday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m. Guided jump-rope workouts bolster stamina and sparring matches provide padded attendees with experience in a controlled setting. During boxing classes, students can learn the essential skills of bobbing and weaving and jabbing. After each workout, guests can retire to the locker rooms, which include onsite showers that rinse away any temporary tattoos of title belts.
