Full Description

COMMUNITY BOXING GYM at the HOUSIE DOME for 8th graders to adults

With Genève Brossard / Berkshire Boxing

This program provides a welcoming and supportive class for all levels of experience and fitness. This fun class focuses on improving fitness and learning all the elements of boxing training; practicing punch combos, footwork, throwing a great uppercut on the heavy bag, learning jump-rope tricks, mitt work with trainers, partner work, and conditioning. Mastering a physical skill does wonders for self-worth and confidence, not to mention health and fitness! Boxing is the perfect modality for the developing bodies of young athletes as well as adults from all backgrounds. 

Light contact sparring is optional and with parental and coach permission only. Typically, it takes at least 6 months of non-contact training before a person is ready for this step. Sparring is not a part of the regular class routine. 

Boxing bags (heavy and speed), jump-ropes, gloves, and all other training equipment will be provided. Students will need to buy their own hand wraps from us for $5 or $10. Students will also need to wear appropriate workout clothes, sneakers, and to bring their own water.

Fridays, 4:45-5:45 PM
February 3 – May 26
