Is your gym intimidating?

No! Stop by and say hello! At Box 'N Burn we take pride in being the most approachable gym in the area.  We want you to feel at home so you get the best out of your time here.

You’ll find COMMUNITY among positive, inspiring men and women. Our passionate instructors care about you and your goals - and will do whatever it takes to help you achieve them.

It's engaging, challenging, and exciting - you'll be so motivated you'll want to keep coming back and become a better you.

Do I need to 'get in shape' before I start your classes?

No. Group classes are for all - no matter your age or fitness level.  A common misunderstanding is that you need to be 'in shape' before starting boxing fitness training. This is completely false. Our classes are designed to allow our attendees to train 'at their own pace' while at the same time, giving the advanced students the opportunity to challenge themselves.

What if I’ve never boxed in my life?

You don't need to have ever boxed, we'll teach you how to throw punches correctly and help you reach your fitness goals.  Box 'N Burn classes are high intensity, non-contact, and FUN!

Will I get hit in the face or body?

No.  Classes are non-contact and non-combat - you'll get lean and toned like a fighter (without ever having to fight!). 

Will I have to spar with another person?

No. Our classes are non-contact and you work in a group setting or one-on-one with a certified trainer.

What are the BENEFITS of a boxing fitness class?

Boxing helps you burn fat and tone muscle in a short amount of time - you'll gain a firm butt, a smaller waist, toned arms, and a lean sexy body. 

Boxing fitness classes are a great cardiovascular workout for weight loss, stronger heart, and lungs, increased bone density, reduced stress, reduced risk of heart disease and some types of cancer, temporary relief from depression and anxiety, and better sleep. 

Boxing releases aggression and manages your stress by getting your endorphins pumping. 

You'll be more confident about how you look and feel like a badass!

Do I need to register for my first class?

Yes. You can sign up and register for a class or download our Box 'N Burn app on your iPhone or Android or on our class schedule. You will need to create a login and signup for the class you want.

Just be sure to show up 10-15 minutes early so we can wrap your hands and explain the class structure to you.

What can I expect at a group class?

To have fun! 

Class is a well-balanced workout consisting of boxing fitness, cardio training, and functional fitness.  It is a full-body workout - legs, core, back, shoulders, and arms.

You'll be doing conditioning drills like jumping jacks, sit-ups, and quick feet drills as well as fundamental boxing including ring and bag work.

Before class begins we'll wrap your hands to protect them and get you in a pair of real boxing gloves.

How many people are in a group class?

Classes will range between 12-32 people. The larger the class, the more instructors to help out. 

In order to keep the quality of the classes high and maintain a healthy trainer-to-member ratio, we have capped each location. Santa Monica is capped at 36 members and Brentwood is capped at 28 members.

Will there be other beginners in my class?

Absolutely. There are always beginners in class. Plus, the advanced students are always eager to help you get you on your way.

How long do the classes last?

Our classes last approximately 60 minutes.

How many classes per week should I attend?

We have classes 7 days a week so the amount of classes you take is based on your own personal schedule. Most of our members train about 1-3 times per week and see great results.
