Why the Boxer's Workout?

Boxing is about perseverance, form, dedication, and a lot of inner drive (boxer's call this "heart").

The Boxer's Workout is one of the top ways to get in top physical and mental shape. The Boxer's Workout includes strength training, cardio, and boxing techniques.

“Boxing isn’t about violence or dodging a blow. It’s more than that. It requires dedication, discipline and strength.” continued Coach Todd.
