Competitive and recreational fighters harden bodies and sharpen reflexes in Warrior Boxing’s namesake program. To begin, all new students attend an Intro to Boxing class to learn basic punches, defensive strategies, and how to properly cheek-kiss a punching bag before a fight. Group-training sessions build on the foundation as champion coach Bob Miller and his training staff help co-ed and women’s-only groups make the most of their newly acquired gloves.
Warrior Boxing’s spick-and-span training center sports two boxing rings, heavy and speed bags, and an avalanche of tools to keep warriors light on their feet and free from the wrath of inflatable, bottom-heavy clowns. Towels and shower facilities are also provided onsite. Students can check the scheduling page to view the gym’s morning and early-evening class times.
