Why I’m Obsessed with Boxing at Rumble NYC!

My first foray into boxing was right when I was really starting to shed weight after my first baby. Boxing has always been incredibly intimidating for me…I used to see people do amazing combinations and punch that bag with reckless abandon. When a college friend, who was a boxing expert suggested that I sign up for his boxing class, I was terrified. The class ended up being pretty incredible. I learned how to execute combos and really punch. It was the coolest small group training class I ever took.

I was invited to check out RUMBLE with Armitron Watches to check out their new line of sports watches. RUMBLE is a new-ish boxing studio in NYC and just like all of the new fitness studios in NYC–it is SO fancy.

The artwork, the studio, the locker room–it was all so clean and mean! When I checked it I got some awesome Armitron branded gloves, a towel and gloves. I didn’t know what I was in for, especially since it was my second workout of the day but I was ready for anything!

The Armitron watches were beautiful. The sports watches were really awesome because they came in all kinds of styles and colors–the perfect gift for the gym goer in your life.

We headed downstairs and the class was split in half, with some of us stationed at a bench with weights of all sizes and the other half of class on the punching bags. I started at the bench and we were assigned all kinds of body weight exercises such as mountain climbers, reverse lunges, high knees, pushups, shoulder touches–you name it!

The next segment was on the bag where we did all kinds of jab/hook/uppercut combinations. A couple times we even got on the floor and did sit ups with jabs on the bag. Did I mention the music was SO good? I may have been dancing a bit and rapping a lot.

We switched for a total of two times each so by the time the class was over we had hit the bag twice and bodyweight exercises twice. The class was SO tough, if you are looking for an easy class–this is not it. However what I like about it is that you can be of ANY level and enjoy this class. I highly recommend Rumble to anyone local to NYC (or if you will be visiting soon!).

Check out Armitron’s latest watches, because you know you need some watches for Christmas gifts!!

The class sounds like so much fun, and right up my alley! I'm a huge fan of boxing classes. They're always so fun, sweaty & challenging. Let's be honest, sometimes it just feels good to punch things & get any frustration & anger out!

PS - I love your outfit!
