What Separates Us from the Fitness Franchises?

Personal Challenges = Personal Growth

Most of the boxing/kickboxing geared towards women is basically an aerobic workout. There’s nothing wrong with those type of classes, but many women want more. Our classes are going to challenge you physically and mentally as you learn technique and how to spar. You don’t need to get hit, but we train every student like they’re preparing for the ring. Read testimonials from our members about how empowering boxing is. 

Grow Your Skills and Grow Your Rank

Similar to Martial Arts dojos, our boxers also have a color ranking system. As you build up your skill set, you will be invited to attend our color band tests. It’s a fun way to come together and celebrate the success of all the women at the school. Plus we go out to breakfast after!

Learn more about our ranking system

Women-Led Classes for Women

It’s important to us to create a space for women to try something new in a supportive community without sacrificing a real boxing experience. Learn more about our awesome all-women group of US Boxing Certified coaches.

Beginners Always Welcome

Most of our students have never boxed before. We make sure beginners feel welcome and are integrated into classes from Day 1. Check out our beginners boxing workshop.
