Boxing is really taking off in Australia as a way to get fit and one of the best total body workouts you’ll experience. One thing to watch out for though, is that boxing is highly addictive! Here are some of our current favourites:
Transpose Fitness, Sydney
We train with the fierce Transpose Fitness duo (Zach Vickers and Siannon Pallister) a few times a week to get a real sweat on. They offer one-on-one, semi-private and small-group classes and all levels of fitness are welcome. Best of all there is a real focus on technique rather than speed and brute force, but don’t get me wrong you get a real workout/workover and are a sweaty mess at the end!
The training is in an amazing location in North Bondi on top of the boat ramp, it must be one of the best locations to punch your stress away at the end of a day. Go and check them out!
