Professional boxers tend to be in pretty good shape, but their secret is the motivating desire not to get punched by other professional boxers. Today's deal gets you in painless prizefighter form without getting punched once. For $35, you get two months of membership at The Boxing Gym, a $78 value. This Groupon is good for either the Ballwin (West County) or the Central West End location. Your two months must be used before your Groupon expires.
Though you won't be engaging in any actual fisticuffs until you get home and accidentally make eye contact with your dog, Boxing Gym instructors will have you performing many of the same exercises that boxers use to get in fine fighting form, including jump rope, push-ups, and frozen-meat-slab punching. Classes such as Boxing Blitz will give you a 30-minute, full-body cardio blast that targets all the major muscles groups. Cardio Kickboxing will get your legs in on the action, while Boot Camp Circuit tones the whole body with a variety of workouts. The Boxing Gym also offers classes in boxing, mixed martial arts, and the most brutal martial art of all—yoga. Those who prefer a more pacifist approach to fitness will find a full gym of conventional cardio equipment, weights, and machines among the punching bags, which easily transform into hugging bags.
Buying today's Groupon to The Boxing Gym will ensure that you are in peak condition to tragically misinterpret Boxing Day next winter. You can also buy extras for your best friend or favorite rock 'em sock 'em robot.
Most boxers refuse to believe that typing is an excellent source of exercise and therefore have yet to write online reviews of The Boxing Gym. However, one Yelper gives it a solid four stars, saying:
- I was brought downstairs by the house boxing instruction pro. He showed me an impressive array of workout equipment in a clean setting. The basement also has every kind of boxing bag available, which can be a relief to a hobbyist on the lookout to work on his or her uppercut. – Nowell G.
The Boxing Gym
The trainers at The Boxing Gym help clients use their natural assets to get into shape: namely, two fists and a little bit of stress to take out on a punching bag. They splice their boxing and kickboxing lessons with calisthenics, push-ups, and jump roping, keeping the workout fast and varied, and always returning to combative techniques. Beyond the realm of fitness, they also help prepare fighters for the ring with MMA training in the form of submission-grappling lessons and full-speed, pad-assisted kickboxing.
