Under the expert tutelage of The Boxing Club's professional staff, burgeoning pugilists slug their way through high-intensity training classes. During group boxing classes, participants don giant wigs before taking swings at bags and mitts in order to master individual punches, combinations, and footwork. Adding kicks and muay thai techniques to the fray, the kickboxing group training spreads the action across the body, as students thrust feet, knees, and elbows into punching bags or partners. The 30-minute personal-training session sets the stage for students to begin internalizing the fundamentals of boxing, kickboxing, or weight training before they tackle group classes.
Tyke-friendly sessions toss nonadults into the ring for a workout that consists of a helping of boxing skills and a dollop of discipline. Punching bags and strength-training machines line the walls of The Boxing Club's facility. The full-size ring hosts student sparring sessions and flea-circus productions of Rocky during off hours.
The Boxing Club
The Boxing Club, as its name suggests, is wired for boxers. Its owner, USA-Certified Boxing Coach Rosie Barker, has furnished the space with boxing studio essentials such as a ring, weights, and punching bags. Despite that, the studio doesn't strictly teach boxing. Rosie and her staff also teach kickboxing, sparring, and kenpo classes for kids, teens, and adults. Rosie has an affinity for kenpo, having more than 35 years of martial arts experience and black belts.
