Recently, I have been trying out various fitness classes around the city. Not only is it fun to try something new and changing your routine is best for your body, but so many studios have “first time offers” that it’s hard to pass up! Next up is Shadowbox.
Shadowbox is a 45 minute group boxing class that combines interval training and body weight exercises. True to the shadowbox name, the classes combine shadowboxing (no contact with the bag), and bag work.
Shadowbox offers various classes ranging from their classic 45 minute class, to their Shadowbox TKO Class (60 minutes), to Shadowbox After Dark Class (60 minutes, more intervals, more combinations). Each class you are required to wear gloves and wraps. Their SBX Custom “X” Gloves are $1.00 to rent, while wraps are $4.00 to buy.
Shadowbox has two locations – one in Flatiron and one in DUMBO. Although both locations are classic boutique fitness, they each have their perks. The Flatiron location has the Ringside Café, which is a matcha, coffee, and juice bar. The DUMBO location has a better shower area, with the space overall feeling a lot more open.
Price: $34 per class and your first class is $20 for Intro Class, $99 4-for-3 intro pack
