6/27/2008 Update:

In case you’re feeling frustrated, and want to “punch” stuff, a Hoboken411 reader indicated that L.A. Boxing is opening up tomorrow.

Knock ’em out!

4/23/2008 Update (or lack thereof):

It’s been over six months since the last update, and it appears that LA Boxing is stuck in the mud (or corner if you want to be punny). There are “Now Open” signs in the windows, but the inside is still gutted with much left to do… wonder if they’ll ever open?

LA Boxing is coming soon to Hoboken, offering residents another way to get into shape!

Moving in near the Cort Furniture rental store, they have nearly 70 locations nationwide (with 27 in California, naturally). Franchise fees seem normal, at about $150k to start up. It seems to be a similar kind of workout to what Club-KO has to offer.

Good luck LA Boxing!

The equipment requirements are elementary: a bag, gloves, jump rope, timer and music. And you’ll get a workout that doesn’t miss a spot: a 1,000-calorie-an-hour cardio bomb and a superb all-body tuner that builds shoulders and forearms and works legs, hips, abs, upper back, triceps, biceps and lats. (Want to blast your delts? Try holding 16-ounce gloves at chin level for two rounds.)

Our instructors are all boxers, kickboxers and mixed martial artists that have gone through rigorous training and know the best way to challenge the body to its ultimate shape.”

LA Boxing is having a fight night for the American Cancer Society Friday night May 16th. Tickets are $25 for ringside seats, $20 for general admission. You can purchase ahead of time or at the door. Opens at 6, fights start at 7.

I know several of the guys fighting, should be some good bouts. It’ll be a mix of Muy Thai/Kickboxing and Boxing. I’m pretty sure the competitors are coming in from another LA Boxing gym.

It’s for a good cause and it’s happening right here in Hoboken, come down and show some support for our guys!
