Box Your Way To A Better Body

You’ve probably heard the phrase “Fight like a Girl”…well that’s exactly what I did at BoxUnion! This is one tough workout where you box to the beat of the music and I absolutely loved it.

Each class is 45 minutes of high-Intensity Interval training, and you’re constantly moving to the music. During a class, the coaches combine shadow boxing, cardio, plyometrics, core work, and heavy bag training, all to hip-hop anthems. Even though boxing is an incredible core workout, the trainers still get in 5 minutes of really targeted ab exercises.

At BoxUnion they say the average workout burns between 600-800 calories per hour, and it’s really great for toning muscles without gaining any bulk. Another benefit is improving your hand-eye coordination and core stability. Plus it’s basically like therapy, I gotta tell you punching that bag feels really really good!

Felicia Alexander is the Co-Founder, President & Chief Empowerment Officer of BoxUnion and explained why she decided to open up a boxing gym this way: “I put on boxing gloves for the first time after my father died suddenly when I was 16. I loved the stress release, the empowerment, the workout, and the mind/body connection. After finding success in the corporate world, I maintained my love of fitness and dream of opening a fitness studio. I wanted to open BoxUnion (with my business partner Todd Wadler) to create a welcoming place where everyone could experience the benefits of boxing without feeling intimidated to walk in the door.”

There are three locations in Los Angeles, two of which offer socially distanced outdoor classes in Santa Monica and West Hollywood. Plus now you can take the classes online, choosing from hundreds of LIVE and On-Demand classes for all levels. In addition to the signature boxing class, the online and outdoor classes now span Boxing, Sculpt, Strength, HIIT, Yoga, and Stretching so you have everything you need to achieve your goals in just one place.
