I've never really worked out much before let alone tried boxing.  Are beginners ok to join?
Yes of course!  Our classes are non-contact.  We begin by working with you on footwork, movement and how to throw a punch properly.  From there, we build and teach you combinations, technique and help you to expand your knowledge of boxing.  You will have fun and learn a lot all while getting a great sweat and overall body workout.  And if you discover that boxing just isn't for you, then we do offer other classes to help you obtain your fitness goals.


Is there a class size limit?
Yes, as a boutique facility that focuses on quality vs quantity, we keep all of our classes sized to a maximum of 16 attendees.

Do people spar in class?
No. Our classes are non-contact.  You get to throw punches without having them thrown back at you.  You will learn defensive skills, how to work on our heavy bags, speed bags, and focus mitts one-on-one with a certified trainer.  If you discover that you love it and may want to compete, then we can help you with that.

Do I need to reserve a spot in class?
Yes.  Please click here to reserve your spot in class on our Mindbody site:  

Do you offer a free trial?
Yes, of course we offer a FREE class trial.  Please reserve the class you would like to try out and arrive 15 minutes prior to class start time to go over any questions and complete your registration.  Late arrivals will need to reschedule.

What should I bring  to class?

Please arrive in regular workout attire including proper athletic shoes and also bring a sweat towel.  If attending one of our classes that include boxing, please bring your own gloves and wraps.  If you need to purchase equipment, we have gloves available for $29-45+, and wraps for $10+.  We do not rent out gloves and wraps but have some you may borrow for your first free class.

Do you have showers?
Unfortunately we do not have showers.

What is the age range for your youth classes?

Our youth classes are for ages 9-17.  A parent or guardian must be present to sign our waiver prior to attending for the first time.
