Boxing and fitness is tough, but you can do it! This is the perfect class to get started, and we know once you try it, you’ll be hooked! We recommend taking this class for your first couple of visits to learn all the boxing basics and also build up to the more intense classes! That being said, there are some folks who only take the class once, and others who stay here year round, so its totally up to YOU! This is a GREAT class to try using your 1st FREE visit to the gym to learn all the basics and get a good sweat going!

Boxing Skills, Drills, and Techniques!
Boxing Skills, Drills, and Techniques is a class designed for folks who have the boxing basics down, but want to continue to receive more technical instruction in boxing, both offensively and defensively. Skills like Parrying, Pivoting, Bob+Weaving, Counter Punching, Various Combinations, etc. will be learned on a class to class basis, and you will get interactive “live” looks by working with a partner on the gym floor. We’ve had a lot of interest expressed for a class like this, so we’ve finally decided to add it to the Gold Membership! The class will be taught by our quiet, “silent-type”, Brantley Thomas. Don’t let Brant’s humble personality fool you, he’s a bonafide boxing stud and can really show you some cool moves to out-maneuver your opponent. We recommend having taken some Boxing 101 classes before giving the Boxing Skills, Drills, and Techniques class out, but once you’ve done that we invite you to come give this class a try for continuous learning on perfecting your boxing craft!
Fundamentals of Competitive Boxing!
An ageless Latin proverb states, “Repetitio est mater studiorum” (“Repetition is the mother of learning”). While one of the most exciting aspects of competitive boxing is the variety of styles that boxers display, every good boxer’s repertoire is based in extensive training of a few basic punches and movements. This course features diligent drilling on basic technical fundamentals to improve attack and defense and is appropriate for anyone from members who just want to tighten up their basics for the other courses to members interested in improving their performance in competitive sparring and boxing matches. Lead by Coach James (Jimmy) Ivory, Konstantin, Coach Dennis, and Kevin, there are a number of solid coaches looking to give helpful feedback for participants!
Aerobic Boxing is a class designed for people who want to get a great, fun, exciting workout in before they start their work or school day! This class is designed for individuals who maybe don’t care as much about the technical skills of boxing like those you’d see in boxing 101, and maybe don’t take life or boxing as seriously as the guys/girls in Fighter-Fit, but still want to come in and get an awesome, FUN workout in, burn some calories, move around, and punch stuff without getting in trouble for it!
