Hard AF?!

  • Yes, challenging!

  • 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).

  • Cardio heavy.

  • 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.

Vibe

  • 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.

  • No mirrors.

  • A little smelly bc not great ventilation.
