Overthrow - Boxing Burnout
Overthrow’s Boxing Burnout class is a high intensity, partner-focused, sweaty boxing workout on and off the bag.
Fitness clothes, sneakers, hand wraps (Overthrow sells for $10), boxing gloves (Overthrow provides for free).
Typical class: (i) 7 min cardio warm up (high knees, mountain climbers, jumping jacks, etc.), (ii) 7 mins of shadowboxing (boxing off of the bag w/o gloves), (iii) 7 mins of partner work w/ gloves (you’ll do combos hitting your partners gloves) while the instructor comes around with mitts and you’ll do combos w/ him, (iv) 10 mins of combos on the bag while switching w/ your partner, (v) 7 mins of team bag work (e.g. 10 speed jabs, move to the next bag, so on and so forth, (vii) 5 mins of solo bag work, and (viii) 2 mins core/cooldown.
Less about the boxing technique, more about constantly moving.
Since a lot of the work is with a partner, how hard you push is somewhat dependent on their skill level (which I personally, don’t love, bc part of me doesn’t hit as hard when working w/ a partner).
Mentally challenging bc the instructor calls out the punch numbers (1= jab, 2=cross, 3= hook, 4, 5 = upper cuts) for the combos and doesn’t demo. You need to pay attention.
I wish there was more solo bag work, instead of partner work.
First Timers: $34 per class.
Returners: $34 per class.
Overthrow offers packages that reduce the per class price and they also offer unlimited classes per week/month.
Overthrow also offers donation-based classes the first Monday of the month at both locations.
Private training available.
Super cool “underground” graffiti vibes. You’ll feel like you’re in Fight Club.
There is a ring/floor on the main floor and the Underground studio is downstairs one flight.
Bare boned, but great decor.
A little smelly bc not great ventilation.
For partner-work, try to partner w/ someone around your same level.
Locker rooms are one floor up.
Bring your own lock (no automatic locks), two showers.
Not many products besides shampoo, conditioner, body wash. Bring your own products.
Bathroom could be cleaner/bigger. It’s a tight squeeze.
Yea, when I want to change up my boxing routine.
