Lights down, pads up, you’ll be hard set to find a class that gets you in the zone like KoBox. It’s like a nightclub, with pumping music, strobe lights and a lot of sweating.
The class is essentially a boxing circuit class, the 60-minute class split between bag work (boxing combos) and strength training (anything from push ups to throwing medicine balls and running while hooked to a resistance band).
Each person in the class gets allocated a number which corresponds to a specific punch bag and ‘floor spot’ around the room, boxers then switch between the two stations.
You get free wraps with your first KoBox class to go underneath the gloves. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to wrap them, there are handy instructions flashing onscreen in the waiting area and if you can grab a staff member (things get hectic) they will be happy to help you.
Tip: This class is not for beginners. There are so many people in the class that, in our experience, the instructor is hard-pressed to make individual adjustments - so make sure you know what you’re doing so you don’t get an injury.Price
