I’VE NEVER BOXED BEFORE, WILL I BE ABLE TO KEEP UP?
Absolutely! You don’t need to have any boxing or fitness experience to join. You just gotta get your butt here and start. 

IS THERE A BEGINNER CLASS?
There’s no “beginner class” because all of our rec classes are suitable for beginners. Our Rec Boxing Class is beginner friendly and designed to allow everyone to box at their own pace. Five minutes before class, we’ll call first-timers to the ring for our “pre-class,” where we teach you how to wrap your hands.

If you’re not sure you’re ready to start a class, we can also offer private coaching with one of our coaches to learn some one-on-one technique before you step into a class setting, but it’s definitely not necessary for attending your first class. 

HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO TAKE A CLASS?
Our Adult Rec and Competitive classes start at 17 years old, with a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Our Youth Class is for ages 10 to 16 years old with a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.

AM I GOING TO GET PUNCHED IN THE FACE?
Hey, we get it; you don’t wanna mess up the money maker or go to work with a shiner. If you don’t want to get punched, you don’t have to spar! If you want to have someone beat on you, once you’ve got enough experience, sparing is an option! We definitely won’t put beginners into spar for everyone’s sake.

WHAT ARE WRAPS AND DO I REALLY NEED THEM?
ALL BOXERS REQUIRE THEIR HANDS TO BE WRAPPED, it’s a part of the gear that keeps you safe.

Wraps help protect your hands and wrists while punching the bag or pads. We have wraps available for purchase for $15, and everyone has to have their own wraps to participate.

DO I NEED MY OWN BOXING GLOVES?
You need gloves to box, it’s the other part of the gear that keeps you safe.

You don’t need to own your own gloves right away, we have some for a small rental fee that we can tie into your membership. But if you’re sticking with it, and want to be a bad-ass, we recommend buying your own gloves. Don’t know which gloves to buy? We’ve got you covered
with the right gloves for sale here at the facility. Ask one of our coaches and we’ll hook you up!

DO OFFER A FREE TRIAL?
We do not offer a free trial, but we do have a good deal on your first two-week pass if you want to try it out. Check out our pricing for all of the options.

DO YOU ACCEPT WALK-INS?
Of course! Please arrive 15 minutes prior to class to get familiar with the gym and to ensure that you are properly equipped for class. Drop-in fees are $20 per class.

Does your gym offer competitive boxing, or are your programs just for fitness?
Stanley Boxing offers both recreational and competitive boxing programs. We have a fully equipped competitive boxing facility with top-notch coaching. We also have a completely separate class strictly used for fitness and rec boxing.

ARE OPEN WORKOUTS PERMITTED/CAN I WORKOUT BY MYSELF?
Not yet, but we’re working on it. Check out our class schedule to see when you can come in.
