Early 20th-century strongmen used their muscled brawn to inspire children and help transport large chunks of Caesar’s palace from Rome to its current Las Vegas location. Follow the mustachioed hunks’ lead with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a membership package at The Boxing Club, valid at both locations, (a $259 value), which includes:
- A one-month membership, which includes unlimited gym use and fitness classes (a $199 value).
- One personal-training session (an $60 value).<p>
The Boxing Club’s Convoy Street and Genesee Avenue locations host ring-centric sweat sessions for solo exercisers, students in one of five group fitness classes, or boxing neophytes working bags under the supervision of seasoned personal trainers. Set speed bags swinging or stoic punching bags wincing inwardly after walking into The Boxing Club’s sprawling facilities, which contain boxing rings, punching bags, and mirrors aplenty. Boxing and kickboxing classes coalesce cardio, calisthenics, and bag work for a fight-inspired workout that affords patrons a safe, effective way to relieve the stress caused by increasingly inconsiderate lines of street-crossing ducklings.
Instructors also teach targeted jabs, strikes, and takedowns in the muay thai tradition, a style of mixed martial arts. For a more traditional group workout, indoor cycling pits biked students against obstacles such as sprints, intervals, and road-blocking horses and buggies in one-hour cardio-boosting routines. In addition to classes and gym use, a personal-training session inspires workers-out to new heights of muscleship in workouts customized by trainers to fit clients’ fitness goals. This Groupon is valid for new customers only.
The Boxing Club
The patter of gloves against heavy bags and the paced breathing of circling sparring partners fills The Boxing Club with energy. That's amplified by trainers, who lead classes in everything from cycling to kickboxing. There's muay thai, for example, an MMA fighting style that torches calories with flurries of flying elbows, knees, and fists, or jiu jitsu, which focuses more on grappling.
Martial arts are, in a way, just one more way of working towards physical fitness for many at the studio. Fitness goals are helped along by a full weight room, cardio area, and pilates studio. There's also a full locker room for cleaning up afterwards.
