What is it? Brooklyn Fit Boxing is relatively new to Ireland. An innovative training system based on the techniques of boxing, kickboxing and Muay Thai, this is a non-contact sport designed for everybody.

What happens in a class? The class works in rounds, just like a regular boxing match, and Brooklyn Fit Boxing consists of 10 rounds. Building you up from basic jab routines, then progressing onto sequences packed full of kicks, hooks, squats and defence stances, this is a high-intensity, calorie-burning, fun-filled workout. Guaranteeing even more bang for your buck, each round is bookended by a one-minute functional training session consisting of moves such as squats, jumping jacks, push-ups, sit-ups and much more. One thing’s for sure, you certainly won’t be bored. Each routine is explained by the instructor but also played out on a screen to your side; hugely helpful in those first moments of uncertainty that we’re all familiar with in a new class. With support all around, you’ll be hard pushed to go wrong. Expect not only to burn on average of 1,000 calories per class, but drastically reduce your stress levels and see clear results within 8 weeks.

How long is the class? 1 hour.

Where? 1 Escape Health Club, Block G, Smithfield, Dublin; oneescape.ie.
