LA Boxing A Headliner
Chris Underwood has opened Oklahomaâ€™s first LA Boxing location at Regal Plaza. LA Boxing is a unique fitness center that specializes in boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts. It is open seven days a week and is available to all skill levels.
What makes LA Boxing unique is its method of getting people in shape. Essentially, participants work out using one of the sports offered. However, instead of fighting, the workout is done with a large punching bag. â€œWe have taken the combative sports and structured them into fitness programs,â€ says Underwood. â€œMost members have never boxed or done any type of martial arts before, and they gain these skills at LA Boxing. At LA Boxing, members are not just paying to go in and punch bags. â€œThey are actually getting a service from us. We are working them out. When they come in the class, they know they are going to get the best workout of their lives.â€ Classes are set up in a group setting similarly to a yoga or Pilates class, but here you get more one-on-one attention than is typical for group fitness classes.
All the instructors are professional fighters in their respective sports. Underwood adds, referring to the students, that the instructors â€œmotivate them, encourage them and also push them beyond their thresholds to where they improve. We have people here who have lost 100 pounds in six months. Itâ€™s crazy.â€ The average participant can burn up to 800 to 1500 calories in an hour depending on how hard he or she works out.
Classes include Boxing and Kick Boxing class, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and mixed martial arts. LA Boxing has youth classes available that are perfect after school activities. Sparing is available also for those who want to take themselves to the next level. The weight room upstairs has everything one would need for strength and conditioning workouts to supplement the classes. LA Boxing is the ultimate fitness center.
LA Boxing offers one free trial class to everyone. Memberships can be month-to-month or one or more years long. They even have a walk-in fee for those individuals who just want one workout. Underwood offers family programs, student, military and law enforcement discounts.
