The overall philosophy that drives our boxing program is building self-confidence through exposure. Boxing is a challenging physical and mental exercise and requires overcoming myriad fears, from the superficial concerns related to how we look when we punch to the biological self- and community-preservation drives that make us afraid to hit and be hit.
Boxing Level 1: Beginner
Level 1 classes will focus on basic boxing fundamentals. It is offensive oriented and will provide a solid cardio workout. No hitting another person or being hit. All levels welcome for a great workout.

Our training philosophy is based on the principle of discipline. While goals set you up for failure, discipline sets you up for fulfillment.
We emphasize form and function over weight and reps. We want you to train like an athlete but not compete like an athlete. Cross-training provides a unique opportunity to learn about your body, what it is capable of and where its limits and imbalances are. We support any athletic endeavor our members wish to take on, but our philosophy de-emphasizes competition in training because focusing on arbitrary performance measures based on condensed timelines (which is what competition breeds) can lead to injury.
