While pre-workout nutrition varies from person to person, it is important to have fuel in your tank before crushing a class with us at TITLE Boxing Club Greensboro 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 Greensboro class:
