I ventured far outside of my normal hood to take this class with a friend. The gym was no frills (it reminded me of a garage) but the class was a good workout. It started with a cardio warmup, and then everyone got their own punching bag for the remainder of class. We did different punching and kicking drills. The class is oddly barefoot/with socks (though it could get slippery with socks) or you can wear special boxing shoes if you have them. We ended class with some partner work and a few plank holds.
The owner was very nice and the vibe was very unpretentious. The regulars of the gym were helpful and it was a great workout if you’re in the neighborhood. They even offer 30 min. lunch time classes for those trying to fit in a quick workout.
