Real boxing training has recently been “rediscovered” as a workout that will assist in weight loss, improve strength, stamina, and flexibility regardless of the user’s current level of fitness. In addition, boxing provides a form of self defense that overshadows most. Boxing is the ultimate form of striking training, generating true power, speed and accuracy utilizing the entire body from the floor up. Boxing involves functional and rudimentary movements that always involve the core.
The Prime Time Boxing program was created from real competitive principles used in professional boxing as well as elite amateur boxing with the fitness enthusiast in mind.
Our Level 1 Instructor Training is two days long and meets the immediate needs of both independent and facility-licensed fitness professionals looking to implement boxing into a boot camp, CrossFit program, and small group training center, schools, military facilities, one-on-one personal training or their own boxing gym.
