What To Eat Before A Boxing Fitness Class

While pre-workout nutrition varies from person to person, it is important to have fuel in your tank before crushing a class at one of our TITLE Boxing Club locations or pressing play on a TITLE On Demand at-home workout.

The further away from your boxing or kickboxing class, the more complex your pre-workout meal can be. As your workout gets closer, you want to shift towards easy-to-digest options.

Here are some examples of pre-workout meals and snacks that will give your body the boost of energy it needs for your TITLE Boxing Club class:

If your boxing or kickboxing class starts within 2+ hours:

  • Sandwich with roasted turkey or meat alternative and a side of vegetables with hummus or guacamole
  • Eggs, sweet potato, and fruit
  • Chicken sausage or meat alternative, rice or quinoa, and roasted vegetables

If your boxing or kickboxing class starts within 2 hours:

  • Sandwich with nut or seed butter and fruit preserves
  • Smoothie made with whey or plant-based protein powder, frozen fruit, frozen zucchini, a shake of cinnamon, and a dash of vanilla. Use water, milk, or a dairy-free milk alternative as your base. Try this Coconut Chocolate Zucchini Smoothie from Ambitious Kitchen!
  • Oatmeal topped with fruit and a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips or cacao nibs
