FAQ

What should I bring?

Indoor training or running shoes. A water bottle. A positive attitude.

What should I wear?

Breathable, comfortable workout attire. A change of shirt for after class. Dudes — tarps on.

Do I bring my own gloves?

Since the global health pandemic Covid 19 we require all who participate in class to have their own gloves. For this reason, we have reasonably priced gloves for $40 should you need to purchase them from us.

We also have handwraps for sale for $15 CAD at the studio. You’re not required to wear handwraps but, we strongly recommend it to protect your wrists and knuckles. If this is your first visit, please make sure to watch this video on how to wrap your hands.

I’m a beginner — can I still come?

Our classes are non-contact and designed for all skill levels. Currently, we are only offering our 8 Count class so that we can maintain proper social distancing. This class is fitness-focused and all the punches will be demonstrated during class.

Any tips for how much to eat or hydrate before a class?

Hydrate before class as the workout is super sweaty. Depending on your fitness level, don’t change anything about what you normally do before a fitness class. If you’re not a regular exerciser, don’t eat a full meal less than 2 hours before class.

We offer towel service — both hand towel and bath towel.

Do you have a shower?
