I’VE NEVER BOXED BEFORE, WILL I BE ABLE TO KEEP UP?
Absolutely! You don’t need to have any boxing or fitness experience to join. You just gotta get your butt here and start.
IS THERE A BEGINNER CLASS?
There’s no “beginner class” because all of our rec classes are suitable for beginners. Our Rec Boxing Class is beginner friendly and designed to allow everyone to box at their own pace. Five minutes before class, we’ll call first-timers to the ring for our “pre-class,” where we teach you how to wrap your hands.
If you’re not sure you’re ready to start a class, we can also offer private coaching with one of our coaches to learn some one-on-one technique before you step into a class setting, but it’s definitely not necessary for attending your first class.
HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO TAKE A CLASS?
Our Adult Rec and Competitive classes start at 17 years old, with a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Our Youth Class is for ages 13 to 16 years old with a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
AM I GOING TO GET PUNCHED IN THE FACE?
Hey, we get it; you don’t wanna mess up the money maker or go to work with a shiner. If you don’t want to get punched, you don’t have to spar! If you want to have someone beat on you, once you’ve got enough experience, sparing is an option! We definitely won’t put beginners into spar for everyone’s sake.
WHAT ARE WRAPS AND DO I REALLY NEED THEM?
ALL BOXERS REQUIRE THEIR HANDS TO BE WRAPPED, it’s a part of the gear that keeps you safe.
Wraps help protect your hands and wrists while punching the bag or pads. We have wraps available for purchase for $15, and everyone has to have their own wraps to participate.
DO I NEED MY OWN BOXING GLOVES?
You need gloves to box, it’s the other part of the gear that keeps you safe.
NORMALLY, we would be able to lend you a pair of gloves while you try out the class. Unfortunately, due to COVID we are unable to do so. Therefore, you need to bring your own pair of gloves to the first class.
DO OFFER A FREE TRIAL?
Yes we do! Call or email us to get signed up for your Free Trail of any one class that we offer! This does not include the Life Change Program.
DO YOU ACCEPT WALK-INS?
Of course! We do offer drop-ins during COVID. However, we have to abide by our class caps and therefore we can not accept drop-ins if the class has already reached it’s COVID capacity. If you would like to try a class, it would be best to call ahead to ensure you have a space saved for yourself ahead of time. Drop-in fees are $20 per class.
DOES YOU GYM OFFER COMPETITIVE BOXING, OR ARE YOUR PROGRAMS JUST FOR FITNESS?
Stanley Boxing offers both recreational and competitive boxing programs. We have a fully equipped competitive boxing facility with top-notch coaching. We also have a completely separate class strictly used for fitness and rec boxing.
ARE OPEN WORKOUTS PERMITTED/CAN I WORKOUT BY MYSELF?
We have just launched our 10 Round boxing circuit which has multiple time options throughout the day for individuals to come in and practice in a non-class environment, while still having some structure and instruction.
