    Enjoy a complimentary boxing class brought to you by Sara of TITLE Boxing Club Grandview!

    Total body boxing workouts will have you boxing like a pro! Your warm up will get your blood pumping with a complete range of exercises including stretching, jogging, calisthenics, jumping, lunging and squats. The bulk of your workout is set up in three minute rounds that include basic boxing combinations followed by a one minute “active rest.” This gives you a break, while keeping your heart rate up. The last portion of class is floor work and toning exercises. You choose how hard or light you hit this boxing workout. Either way, you will burn a great deal of calories and have fun.

    About Sara: I am currently a grad student at Ohio State and have been a trainer at TITLE Boxing Club Grandview since it opened last June. I am a certified BodyPump instructor and also used to teach classes at Aussie Fit. I am very interested in fitness and have stayed active through sports in high school, working out on my own and teaching different workout classes. In my class you will get your heart rate up through a full body warmup, then I will make sure that you keep it up by building up on the combinations during the rounds. I love the core part of the workout, especially planks! I believe that it is important to come to the workout fueled and ready to work!
