This is a brand new studio that just opened last week and the locker room is BEAUTIFUL. I have been meaning to try Iron Boxing in Santa Monica, but never made it over there, so I was beyond excited that the Brentwood location opened less than a mile from my apartment! I went last Friday evening with a friend and there were only 6 people total in the class, so there was a lot of personalized attention. Ask for a walk through of the studio because the front desk didn’t really give me the rundown until I specifically asked (even though they knew it was my first time). There is only one bathroom for women and one for men, but these are separate from the locker rooms. The locker room is clean and big and full of amenities, with combo locks and 2 showers.

The studio itself is part gym, part boxing studio and there is also individual gym time offered where people can go and use the machines (treadmills, etc.) and the equipment. The boxing class takes place in a ring area and there are punching bags and a series of circuits set up. The class consisted of a cardio warmup, three circuits total that included boxing, punching bags, weights and cardio, and finished with ab work on mats and a stretch. It was an intense workout (kind of like Prevail, but with less people and more instructors). There were 3 trainers total for the 6 of us, so the ratio was pretty good. The area below my right shoulder blade was really sore the next day, so I hope that means I’m working a muscle I don’t normally work! I brought my own gloves and wraps but my friend rented hers for free from the studio. Overall, it was a nice and intense workout with a lot of personalized attention.
