THE MERGE!!! TITLE Boxing Club Iowa City Joins Forces With THRIVE Gym Coralville
Our Club Leadership
Born in Boston, MA, IB has lived in 4 continents (Europe, Central America, Africa, and North America) – you can tell with the crazy accent.
His passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle is second to none, and he loves helping everyone around him break their plateau and conquer their goals. It has always been his main objective to make it the best hour of someone’s day when they walk into the club. IB graduated with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at Kansas State University in 2007. He moved to Kansas City shortly after graduation and became the 5th member to ever join the first TITLE, Overland Park 119th, KS.
“TITLE is my life and I love seeing the transformation take place with our amazing members. It is a dream come true to open a Franchise Club here in Iowa City and if anything don’t let my smile fool you, I will make sure I break every sweat outta you. Cheers, mate!”
I’ve heard the classes are intense; do I need to be in great shape to do the workouts?
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t worked out in a while or have never boxed before, you can finish the workout feeling great! You’ll see that everyone goes at their own pace, but believe us that once you’re here, you’ll be inspired to give it your very best!
I don’t want to get hit; is this a contact workout?
No—not ever! Each person in class has their own heavy bag to workout on, plus their own space to move around the bag. Trust us, you won’t even realize anyone else is in the class because you’ll be so focused on the workout! And, rest easy, we never allow sparring or fighting at TITLE Boxing Club.
What makes TITLE different than other fitness studios?
Boxing is a great workout, perhaps one of the most challenging of all sports, and we want to bring you the intensity of the training, minus the impact. We’ll teach you how to roll with the punches by pushing you further than you thought possible.
I’m new to boxing; will someone show me the basics?
You bet! All of our classes are taught by instructors who will show you the ropes from the beginning. We’ll help you wrap your hands and walk you through the basic fundamentals. Everyone in class is at a different level, so take a deep breath and go at your own pace!
What do I need to bring to class? How early do I need to arrive?
Hand wraps are essential for your protection and mandatory for class. You can bring your own or buy them here. We’ll have gloves for you to borrow your first time, and you might want to bring a bottle of water and towel! Plan on arriving 20 minutes early so we can get you settled and wrap your hands.
I’ve never hit anything before. Will I hurt myself?
For a beginner, the most important thing is to learn the proper form. The good news is that we’ll teach you! As you progress, you’ll be able to throw several variations of punches from different positions and develop your own punching technique to fit your style. People are usually surprised at how much they love hitting the heavy bag!
Do you have showers?
We do have a private shower for you to clean up after your workout and please bring any essentials you may need!
Can I try a class before joining?
Of course you can take classes before purchasing a membership. We have drop-in rates for single classes, three or six classes. These are great for people who travel often or want to try us out. You can choose our best value option and commit to a membership any time.
