The Jym’s Jerome Davis whips bodies into shape with one-hour boxing workouts using his professional boxing and personal training experience. The potent cross-training class incorporates a wide variety of fighting styles that hone muscles while increasing cardio endurance, helping workers-out create toned, agile bodies that can comfortably tackle heavy lifting or runaway guinea-pig herding. Thirty-person classes practice jabs and ducks without laying a gloved hand against fellow combatants, keeping the practice-ring free of bruises while working to torch calories and boost lung capacity. Designed for fitness seekers age 10 and up, the boxing sessions help hone balance and coordination while improving overall sports performance, leaving patrons eternally ready to take the field as naturally as a zebra referee.
Inside The Jym's health and fitness studio, trainer and owner Jerome Davis helps clients of all athletic levels hone strength, endurance, and coordination with intense boxing workouts. Davis boasts more than 30 years of experience in amateur and professional boxing and a personal-trainer certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. His bare-bones facility houses a variety of simple equipment on which patrons perform strength and cardio exercises before applying their strength in more interactive ways. To hone skills, trainees work with Davis in the ring or confront shadowy demons by jabbing and hugging the gym's collection of emotionless punching bags.
