Without recreational fighting, people would settle disputes by playing rock-paper-scissors or having unifying conversations about politics and religion. Get fit while settling feuds with today's Groupon: for $50, you get one month of unlimited training at Tapout Boston Training Center (a $199 value).
Tapout Boston's astonishingly well-appointed digs swell with muscle-molding equipment and a slew of trainers skilled in a variety of pugilistic recreations. A select team of martial artists teach their protégés the finely honed craft of painting masterpieces of victory across the gym's 2,200 square feet of sparring and wrestling surfaces, using the fist-flurries of muay thai and jiu-jitsu to punctuate instructional lessons and grammatically incorrect road signs. Discover a worthy boxing opponent in the ring, spring into the 22-foot caged octagon's medley of grappling and pummeling, or debate the probability of a grand unified theory from caged battle podiums.
The Herculean schedule teems with courses that incorporate cardio exercise, strength training, and heavy-bag drills, as well as a variety of choices for men and women of all ages and fitness backgrounds. Explore nearly 10,000 square feet of muscle Valhalla, laden with free weights, cardio equipment, pro shops, and inspirational montage booths. Tapout Boston also offers budding buffs full locker-room facilities and parking validation.
