Alongside experienced instructors, certified trainer Lisa Lakes and nationally ranked heavyweight boxer Danny Calhoun team up to get students in fit fighting condition during boxing and martial-arts courses. Their combat tutelage has drawn such professional athletes as Indianapolis Colts linebacker Tyjuan Hagler and UFC champion Rich Franklin to The Punch House’s arenas, where punching bags sway and try in vain to grow fists to get even. Patrons learn the technique and focus needed to launch rapid-fire blows during Boxing 101 classes that blend cardio and callisthenic exercises. During Mixed Martial Arts for Fitness sessions, guests flip punching bags onto the ground before delivering practiced pummels or raising legs in high-knee salutes to hanging bags. Fitness Boot Camp mixes several fisticuffs drills into a single routine, designed to help patrons to shed pounds, ramp up endurance, and defend themselves against hordes of falling balloons.

The Punch House

Each boxing class at held The Punch House—voted "Best Of the City" for its classes by Cincinnati Magazine—is taught by trained professionals such as nationally ranked heavyweight boxer Danny Calhoun or Zach Thomas, who was voted "Best Trainer of the City" by The Women's Fitness Association. And clients do more than just learn boxing moves: students torch up to 1,000 calories in each one-hour Boxing 101 class or over 500 calories during 30-minute Power Boxing classes.

The facility's combat tutelage has drawn such professional athletes as Indianapolis Colts linebacker Tyjuan Hagler and UFC champion Rich Franklin to The Punch House's arenas. Inside the high-ceilinged gym, red walls frame the expanse of blue and black floor mats, bruised from the many ground-pound lessons during mixed-martial-arts classes. Heavy, full-length bags sway, only slightly malformed from the devastating combos students are taught to deliver.
