It’s no surprise that boxing is having its moment. Chances are, you’ve seen a celebrity Instagram a video of herself sparring with an instructor or hitting the bag at her favorite boxing gym. Or maybe you’ve heard your friend rave about the new boxing studio she went to last week and how great she felt after throwing some punches. The gritty workout has totally gone mainstream—and the proof is in how many boutique boxing gyms have opened in just the past few years.15 Boxing Gyms From All Over The Country That Will Kick Your Ass
While some still retain the underground, no-frills vibes of the classic boxing gym, others are chic and shiny, which means there’s a boxing gym out there for everyone. The best part? No matter if there’s graffiti on the walls or neon lights flashing during class, you’re going to get an incredible full-body workout.
The atmosphere is reminiscent of some indoor cycling studios: dark room, club music, charismatic instructor—but instead of pedaling, you’re boxing at one of 40 heavy bags. In off-the-bag intervals, you’ll do strength moves like planks and push-ups. After class, take a private lesson in the ring, or hydrate at the juice and coffee bar.
