LA Boxing offers a more engaging way to keep fit

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO RIDGE, Ill. (FOX 32 News) -

Men and women are learning a new way to stay fit. LA Boxing in Chicago Ridge has a hugely popular new option for people looking to keep healthy in a more engaging way.

If you need a little push they have you covered. Compared to traditional gyms, LA Boxing has more of a family atmosphere and instructors that are attuned to that attitude.

"This is the best workout I've ever had," gym manager Vince Prieto said.

The gym offers hour-long classes and holds over 40 classes a week. You can burn from 700 to 1,000 calories in one hour. What's more, the ratio of women to men at this location is 70-to-30.

One frequent boxer said she took up boxing because she wanted to keep up with her two kids and maybe even lose some weight in the process. But she gets bored on a treadmill or stair-stepper, so she decided to try something fun at LA Boxing.

New guests can get a membership for as low as $59 per month.
