I’VE HEARD THE CLASSES ARE INTENSE; DO I NEED TO BE IN GREAT SHAPE TO DO THE WORKOUTS?
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t worked out in a while or have never boxed before, you can finish the workout feeling great! You’ll see that everyone goes at their own pace, but believe us that once you’re here, you’ll be inspired to give it your very best!
I DON’T WANT TO GET HIT; IS THIS A CONTACT WORKOUT?
No—not ever! Each person in class has their own heavy bag to work out on, plus their own space to move around the bag. Trust us, you won’t even realize anyone else is in the class because you’ll be so focused on the workout! Rest easy, we never allow sparring or fighting at St. Louis Boxing Club.
I’M NEW TO BOXING; WILL SOMEONE SHOW ME THE BASICS?
You bet! All of our classes are taught by instructors who will show you the ropes from the beginning. We’ll help you wrap your hands and walk you through the basic fundamentals. Everyone in class is at a different level, so take a deep breath and go at your own pace!
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO CLASS? HOW EARLY DO I NEED TO ARRIVE?
Hand wraps are essential for your protection and mandatory for class. You can bring your own or buy them here. We’ll have gloves for you to borrow your first time, and you might want to bring a bottle of water and towel! Plan on arriving 20 minutes early so we can get you settled and wrap your hands.
