THE WORKOUT

IS IT OKAY IF I HAVE NEVER BOXED?

Our classes are designed for all fitness and boxing experience levels and we encourage you do go at your own pace. If you are new to boxing, please arrive to your first class 20 minutes early to check in at the front desk and run through your punch orientation with your first timer ambassador. Your coach will also take you through our 6 basic punches and defensive moves before the start of class time. If you are looking for a more in-depth boxing breakdown, join us for Form + Footwork.

We have everything you need right in the studio— glove rentals are available for $3.00 and quickwraps and traditional wraps  are available for purchase.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A BOXUNION SIGNATURE CLASS?

It’s not just a class. It’s an experience that is equal parts MIND, BODY, BOXING and MUSIC.

For forty-five, heart pounding minutes, we combine shadowboxing, cardio, plyometrics, core work and heavy bag training for fun fitness fusion that pushes the mind and body within your individual heavy bag station. All classes include a targeted warm up and cool down to ensure our boxers are present and prepared to truly build their inner and outer fighter. The first phase of class focuses on shadowboxing to the beat with bursts of cardio, plyometrics and body weight movements. The second phase is all about you and your heavy bag as you continue to build lean muscle, burn calories, intensify your focus and relieve stress.  And don’t worry, while boxing is an incredible core workout, we sneak in 5 minutes of fierce core exercises to give you that extra EXTRA burn. We want you to leave the studio with the heart of a champion—stronger, more confident and empowered.

I HAVEN’T WORKED OUT IN A WHILE…

Trust us, we have all been there. Getting back into workouts can often be intimidating and we want to support you as you take on this exciting new challenge. Our classes are designed for all fitness levels. Our coaches provide modifications for the movements and combinations we utilize in class. Getting overwhelmed on the bag? You can always go back to your single jab or adjust the power behind your punch. We are excited to provide a system that encourages boxers to thrive, grow and build their fitness.  If you have any questions, just give us a call at the studio.

IS THERE A BEGINNER CLASS?

In addition to our Signature Class (which is designed for all fitness and boxing levels) we offer Form + Footwork. A weekly, comprehensive and in-depth 45-minute review of boxing fundamentals, this class is great for newcomers or those looking for a hands-on breakdown of the six punches and defensive moves. Review technique, form and footwork. Private trainers are also available through our Champion Training program. Neither Form + Footwork nor Champion Training are a prerequisite for joining our Signature Class.
