Learn The Art Of Boxing In Eldersburg, Maryland

If you are looking for a boxing fitness class nowadays you can find one in most gyms.  There have even been some boxing fitness gyms opening up.  All are good workouts in their own right, but do they actually teach the art of boxing? The truth of the matter is most of the gyms hire aerobic instructors to teach boxing like movements to do to aerobic dance music.  But they don’t actually teach boxing. Shaddock MMA Fitness is something different.

Coach Shaddock has been involved in boxing for over 30 years.  A USA Boxing Certified coach John’s  class teaches the basics of boxing from soup to nuts.  You will learn footwork, basic punches, defense and how to hit the various bags that hang at the gym.  So you will not only get a fantastic workout but you will also learn how to defend yourself through the art of boxing.

The best thing about any of the classes is they are for all ages, all fitness levels, and is good for beginners and advanced students alike.  There is something for everyone in the family.   Before you sign up at any of the other gyms, come try the best first, Shaddock MMA Fitness.   To make sure you feel comfortable taking the class I am offering a FREE one on one training session and orientation on the equipment.  Just go to shaddockmma.com and fill out the contact form and I will contact you to set up your FREE training session.  I hope to see you in the gym.

What To Look For In A Boxing Fitness Gym In Sykesville Maryland

The Money crashers blog stated that the 5 benefits of a boxing fitness class are

  1. Enhanced Cardiovascular Health
  2. Improved Total-Body Strength
  3. Better Hand-Eye Coordination
  4.  Decreased Stress
  5. Improved Body Composition

Well Shaddock MMA Fitness does focus on all of these and I will show you how.

Enhanced Cardiovascular Health- All of the classes at Shaddock MMA Fitness focus on cardiovascular health.  We have a variety of classes to get your heart pumping.  We have FITBOX, IRONBOX, GIRLBOX AND GRAPPLEBOX, each is a great cardio workout.

Improved Total-Body Strength- Our Fitbox and Girlbox classes build body strength through exercises like push ups and sit ups.  GrappleBox uses functional exercises that relate to grappling to build strength.  IronBox uses traditional and non- traditional weight exercises to build muscle and strength.

Better Hand-Eye Coordination- This is probably the biggest area that separates Shaddock MMA from the competition.  While shadow boxing and heavy bag training can help with hand-eye coordination, there is no substitute for the light bags.  At Shaddock MMA Fitness we not only have a variety of different heavy bags, but we have speed bags, double end bags and slipping bags which focus on hand eye coordination.

Decreased Stress- Working out in general will reduce your stress level, but nothing will get rid of your stress like punching out a heavy bag.

Improved Body Composition- Although people say they want to lose weight, ideally they want an improved body composition.  What that means is low fat and increased toned muscle.  All of the classes at Shaddock MMA Fitness will achieve that.

If You’ve Never Done A Boxing Fitness Class Before But Always Wanted To Try!

I have owned Shaddock MMA and Fitness for close to ten years.  The gym was founded on my boxing fitness class.  What I have found over the years is a lot of people were not coming in because they were afraid to try the class.  The were scared they would look stupid because they don’t know how to how to use the equipment.  I understand that people don’t  want to look like a klutz and because of that I have designed the Beginner Boxing Clinic.

This Saturday at 11:15 AM I will be teaching a Beginner Boxing Clinic at Shaddock MMA Fitness.  The course will go over basic footwork, how to properly throw a punch, how to hit the bags correctly, and all at an easy going pace so everyone can keep up no matter what your fitness level.  The beauty of this is that it will prepare all participants to be able to come into any of my boxing fitness classes (Fitbox, Girlbox, IronBox and GrappleBox), and feel comfortable doing the class.

Just go to shaddockmma.com and fill out the contact form.  Then come in this Saturday at 11:15 and come and take the class.  Wear comfortable clothing and since we don’t have a water fountain you will want to bring a water or a Gatorade.  You do not wear shoes on our boxing mat so be prepared to workout barefoot or in socks.  I look forward to seeing you Saturday.

Keep your hands up,

Coach John “Bones” Shaddock
