Why is BAM’s Boxing Camp at Sanctuary different?
Safety and Proper Technique
If you take classes at Sanctuary, you know we take a Personal Training approach to our classes. We focus on safety and proper technique on basic movements so we can teach you advanced movements and push you to “level up” and test your limits both mentally and physically. Unlike other boxing studios where you hop in with little understanding of proper punch technique or footwork, we are taking the time to make sure you have a TRUE foundation of how to do Boxing properly and safely.
The Personal Touch
True to Sanctuary, your classes will also come with that true personal touch and connection with your instructor. Before class, your instructor will be in the room to help you with your wraps and gloves. After class the instructor will be there to help answer questions. And during class, because this is a small cohort and there will not be new faces popping in during the program, your instructor will get to know you and be able to go to the next level with coaching you and your cohort on advanced techniques.
Unique Top Of The Line Equipment
We will be utilizing the Aqua Training Bag, a specially engineered, tear drop shaped, water filled punching bag that absorbs your punch’s kinetic energy for lower impact on the hands, wrists, and shoulders. They are top of the line. We will also be using Double End Bag, a type of Speed Bag, which you won’t find in other group boxing classes. This special light weight, air filled bag will tone up your shoulders and arms, increase hand speed, increase hand-eye coordination, and due to the constant movement, your cardio levels. These bags are an essential part of a TRUE boxing focused workout session.
What about “regular” boxing classes included in my membership?
BAM’S Boxing Camp is your qualifier for Boxing 45 classes at Sanctuary Fitness. Once you have completed the 4 Class Boxing Camp Program, you will then be eligible to take our future boxing classes that are not part of the special program. We are doing this to protect the integrity of the class. Everyone in these classes will already have their own wraps, gloves, and know all the basics of punch and footwork technique and how our classes will flow so we don’t have to teach new attendees at the beginning of class. This means more time spent in class boxing and less time “figuring it out”.
