Boxing workouts have made their way to the center stage as a mainstream workout in the last few years.
And it’s no wonder why – if you’re looking for a killer workout that’s sure to blast calories, get you sweating, and make you feel like a total bada**, a boxing workout will do all that and more.
Whether you’re ready to wrap ‘em up and work on your jab-cross sequence, or you just want an awesome workout that will torch calories and tone your body, you’ll want to check out one of these 5 best boxing studios in Atlanta.
A Nashville native and Atlantian transplant, Pepper Boxing Studio has quickly risen to the top when it comes to the best boxing studio right here in Atlanta.
Pepper Boxing offers guided workout classes in the world’s only circular classroom layout so you’ll never have to take your eyes off of your trainer. And that means no having to watch your (possibly) inexperienced neighbor teach you the proper form for boxing sequences.
Plus, you’ll have your own designated tear-drop shaped heavy bag (filled with water!) so you don’t have to worry about taking turns with the person next to you (and that means non-stop action during your workout).
Speaking of those tear-drop shaped bags.
If you’re wondering what those are for – they’re filled with about 190lbs of water. And that means less swinging around and more shock absorption, which is especially great if you’re just starting out with your first 1-2 sequences.
No worries if you feel intimidated before your first class. Since the studio’s dimly lit, you’ll only focus on your own personal space.
