How TITLE Boxing Club is a Full-Body Workout

One of the first things people assume about a boxing workout class is that you’re only working your upper body. People naturally think this because they see people hitting the heavy bag with a jabs, cross, hooks and uppercuts.

 One of our favorite comments we hear the day after someone takes our class for the first time is how sore their whole body and legs are! We’re breaking down this myth and explaining exactly how TITLE Boxing Club targets your full-body in every class. 

While each trainer and every class is different, the core of our classes are build of four main components: the warm up, the rounds, active rest, core and cool down. This is specially designed for our members to work their whole bodies but do so in a way that’s safe and prevents injury.

The Warm Up 

The most important part of any work out is the warm up. This is the time to get your mind and your body ready for the rest of the workout. The best HIIT workout of your life starts with trainer-led shadow boxing, cardio drills and stretches to get your heart pumping. You’ll begin each class with a solid stretch and calisthenics to prepare your body for punching or kicking the heavy bag during the rest of the workout. Think: lunges, squats, shadow boxing, jumping jacks and more to get a total-body workout. From the beginning of the workout, you’re working your entire body: arms, legs, core and stability.

The Rounds

Each of our boxing workouts consist of three-minute rounds where your trainer will lead you through a series of punches and kicks on the 100-pound heavy bag. We’ll tell you, show you and teach you how to execute each move throughout the rounds. Even during the rounds you’re working your legs, glutes and core. 

With the proper form, you’re working these muscles groups:

Active Rest

Between each round we’ll keep your mind and your body engaged with calisthenics for your active rest period. Each active rest period is one minute long. You can push yourself and your limits during this period or take a quick water break and jump right into the next round. This is typically the time when people notice they’re working their lower body more with squats and lung variations. 

Core & Cool Down

Finish your full-body workout with the hardest, most sculpting portion of our class. Trainers will lead you through a strengthening and toning abdominal workout to define your core. Finish your workout inspired by using our weighted medicine balls to do a variety of exercises all targeting your abs. So much of our power and stability comes from our core. Strengthening our core is important for our work on the heavy bag but also for injury prevention. Having a strong core and learning how to properly engage it will protect your lower back from injury.

If you’ve never taken class, we hope this encourages you that after one of our signature workouts, you’ll have knocked out a full-body workout that not only engaged your muscles but your mind as well. Most importantly, we encourage you stretch after class and drink plenty of water to replenish your body from the hard work you just completed!
