Become a Heavy Hitter and discover your POWER in the next phase of your fitness journey – even outside of the ring– with this vigorous workout designed to build endurance, strength, and stability. Using a variety of resistance training styles and intervals both on and off the heavy bag, this workout is designed to push the limits of upper body and lower body strength and challenge core strength and stability. 

Why Try Heavy Hitter?  

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee! In Heavy Hitter, we’re not just building muscle on the heavy bag; we’ll use other weight equipment to build strength as you jab, cross and hook your way to increase stamina, sharpen your senses and develop the speed and agility of Muhammad Ali! 

What Is Heavy Hitter Like?  

Heavy Hitter starts with powerful precision as you punch and jab through shadow box and boxing fundamentals. You move to individual boxing bags to begin rounds of perfecting your punch precision. Then get quick on your feet, sharpening your reactions using Knux, light handheld specially designed weights and specialized weight equipment to challenge endurance and total body strength. Heavy Hitter finishes with five minutes of grounded core to forge your core into a fortress.

Who Are Heavy Hitter Classes Best For? 

All fitness levels are welcome in this total body boxing training class with agility, boxing drills, and strength training to chisel your muscles, core and condition your heart.  Options are available for everyone; boxing fundamentals during the warm-up will guide proper form and punch placement.  

Is Heavy Hitter a Good Workout? 

Heavy Hitter joins upper and lower body forces to sculpt muscles, turn your core into a fortress, have you quick on your feet and sharpen your reactions ready for whatever punch life throws. 

  • Strength. Boxing is a full-body exercise, with both upper and lower body muscle groups working together to throw punches effectively. When combined with the resistance of a heavy bag, boxing builds bone density. 
  • Cardiovascular Endurance. The footwork in boxing, in addition to the speed and rhythmic work of punch combinations, strengthens the heart and lungs, resulting in a lower resting heart rate and increased stamina 
  • Speed and Agility. Boxing drill combinations and reaction drills focus on speed and agility, which improve coordination, mental focus, and result in quicker reaction times. 
  • Core Stability. A strong core is the heartbeat of strength, and we take that seriously. Brace yourself for a workout that challenges not just your muscles but your very center of gravity. Maintaining balance, coordinating muscles, aligning posture – we’ll turn your core into a fortress.
