Punch Pedal House - Punch House 45
Punch Pedal House’s Boxing Bootcamp is a sweaty circuit-based interval class comprised of boxing, running, and strength-training.
Fitness clothes, sneakers, wraps, + boxing gloves.
Boxing gloves are $5 to rent. Wraps are $10 to buy.
45 mins (available in 60 mins too).
3 stations: the skillmill (a curved treadmill), the bench w/ weights, and the punching bag (a tear-drop, water-filled bag, like Rumble’s).
You’ll move through each of the 3 stations 3 times through. 3 minutes at each station (so that means 9 min rounds). So, the entire class is 27 mins of work.
Typical class: (i) 3 mins on the skillmill (e.g. 30 secs jog, 1 min run, 30 secs jog, 1 min run, 30 sec jog, 30 sec sprint), (ii) 3 mins on bag (e.g. 4 jab cross hooks, 10 push ups, 4 jab cross hooks, 10 russian twist sit ups, 10 hooks), (iii) 3 mins on bench w/ free weights (e.g. 10 shoulder presses, 10 rows on each arm, 10 weighted stepovers over the bench, and 10 dumbbell snatches). And then 2 more rounds with new exercises at each station.
Cooldown at the end of class.
Yes! This class definitely pushes you. I thought the hardest part was the skillmill runs (not used to that machine, but is way harder than a treadmill).
Expect to be out of breath after most stations.
In order to get the best results, push yourself by using heavier weights during the bench stations.
You’re not at each station too long, so if you’re not paying attention/moving fast, you may not get as good as a workout.
Class flies by bc you’re moving around so much.
Solid mix of cardio and strength.
Not at all enough of boxing to call this a “boxing bootcamp”. IMO, having to rent gloves for $5 to use them for a total of about 3 mins isn’t cool. For example, Shadowbox provides their gloves for free and you’re using them for about 30 mins straight. Box + Flow rents for $3, but you’re using them for about 25 mins of the class.
Sweat Level: 💧💧💧💧
First Timers: $45 buy one get one free.
Returners: $30 per class.
Punch Pedal House offers packages that reduce the per class price and they also offer weekend unlimited classes and unlimited classes via membership.
The studio is broken up into two rooms: the Pedal House and Punch House - each “House” is through a separate door.
Spacious and clean space, but the Punch House is on the smaller side (no windows, no air conditioning).
Instructors are motivating and instructive.
Good amount of variety in equipment and exercises.
Punch Pedal House is the next iteration of the closed Rhythm Ryde which was also in Dumbo.
Don’t love Punch Pedal House’s attitude in its ClassPass intro: “The room will get hot, if you can’t stand the heat, best try somewhere else.”
Showers, locker rooms, and lockers w automatic locks.
Yeah, quick and dirty HIIT class. Probably wouldn’t travel to Dumbo just for this class, but if you live/work nearby, it’s a good option to sweat.
