  • 45 mins.

  • Every boxer needs (i) wraps (sold for $8) and (ii) gloves (rented for $3).

  • When you reserve a spot, you’ll pick to start on the floor or bag (if you’ve ever done Barry’s Bootcamp, then this will sound familiar (for better or for worse?)).

  • If you start on the floor, you’ll start on the reserved workout bench, which contains free weight and, hand weights.

  • Floor conditioning moves, think: curls, push ups, abs, overhead presses (exercises are lit up on the wall via a projector).

  • On the bag think punching combos (also projected on the wall). In between each bag round, you’ll do an active recovery, like crunches.

Hard AF?!

  • Challenging, but doable.

  • Floor moves are standard strength and conditioning moves, and you can choose the weight that you use.  

  • On the bag, it’s only truly difficult if you’ve never boxed before. In the class that I attended, Rumble didn’t use defensive moves or complicated combos in the bag portion.

  • Less technique boxing, more cardio workout.
