I have been dying to try a boxing class for some time. Intimidation and nerves had thus far prevented me from ever giving the intense sport a try. I’m badass but not THAT badass. But, with the Southie Crossfit Showdown going on this weekend, a girl’s gotta do something to stay active. I had heard about The Club by George Foreman awhile back, a luxury boxing gym, located in a two floor, 15,000 square foot space. With the lack of my cross fit gym available and the demotivation of working out at home, this was my chance to give one of the intense fighting classes a try.
So, on Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending a BoxFit360 at The Club by George Foreman III. Described as 2 minute circuits for 45 minutes using Kettlebell’s, rowers, ropes, and more, this sounded like my type of class!
When my fiancé and I arrived on Saturday, to say we were impressed would be a huge understatement. The Club is a converted warehouse with brick interior, state-of-the-art locker rooms with a sauna, steam rooms and showers and towel service, an on-site juice and coffee bar, and plenty of core, cardio and strength training equipment. The center floor also features two boxing rings, with the edges featuring smaller spaces for group exercise classes( like boxfit360). Classrooms are also on the outer edges and include fight conditioning, boxing yoga, barre, and spinning. Upstairs you will find treadmills, rowers, and more for all of your cardio needs. You really can find anything and everything you need at The Club. And of course there are plenty of bags and boxing equipment.
We had such a fun time doing the class too! Pat was our instructor and was super focused and does a great job pushing you. He also is very attentive to form, which I ALWAYS seek from an instructor. Great full body workout and I really appreciated the core intervals in between each circuit. The staff were accommodating and friendly as well and we didn’t feel out of place being the “newbies” at all.
I will definitely be back for more!
