Have you ever wanted to learn to box, or add boxing to your workout? Now’s your chance.
Rumble Boxing Brookfield recently opened at 17165A Bluemound Rd., and it will celebrate its grand opening on October 26-29 with exclusive member specials such as a “buy one class, get one free” deal for first-time visitors. All classes are currently $23 and packages are available.
Founded in New York City in 2017, Rumble is a group fitness concept delivering a combination of boxing-inspired circuits and resistance training. The experience is a 45-minute, 10-round, full-body cardio and strength workout crafted around specially designed water-filled, teardrop-style boxing bags that are easy on the joints. The workout is open to all fitness levels, so novices should feel comfortable giving it a try.
Co-owner Rachel Kitzan described her first experience at Rumble: “It’s hard to put into words how I felt after my first class at Rumble. Despite it being our first class, it was easy to follow along and enjoy the workout. What distinguishes Rumble is its warm and pressure-free atmosphere. Although it’s a group fitness class, it feels like a personal experience. Your mind and body adapt to what’s coming next and even after an intense session, I left feeling reenergized.”
According to the Rumble website, it is not necessary to have your own equipment as gloves and wraps are provided when you check in. For beginners, a trainer who is a combination DJ, motivational speaker and fitness pro walks you through six types of punches in the pre-class so you know what punch you are supposed to be throwing and understand the boxing lingo. The punches include the jab, the cross, front and back hooks, as well as front and back uppercuts.
Energetic music keeps you in the groove for the entire workout, starting with a shadow boxing warm-up. Then, you start boxing at your own pace, with all the boxing combinations shown on a screen for you to follow along. The workout alternates between boxing and circuit training for strength conditioning.
Kitzan and Jason Teggatz co-own Rumble Boxing Brookfield and their sixteen-year-old son is also actively involved in the business. Before purchasing the Rumble franchise, Kitzan’s career has been as an auditor in the global dietary supplement industry.
You can schedule or “book your bag” via the Rumble website. They are open mornings every day (hours vary), with evening hours from 4 – 9pm Monday through Thursday. Classes focus on upper body, lower body, full body or boxing only.
