Get Fit and Have Fun at this New Boxing Gym

Among its many claims to fame, Philadelphia’s prominent role in the “Rocky” series has led many film lovers to associate the city with the world of boxing. The city’s reputation as a haven for the sport has reached new heights that—even if you don’t fancy yourself a budding Rocky Balboa—you can get in on for fun and fitness!

      A number of new boxing studios have opened in the city in recent months, including one right near your 1500 Locust apartment, in an effort to give health-conscious locals a new outlet for burning calories, getting toned and building their own confidence.

      Rumble is among the new boxing spaces for Philly residents and is just one block from your 1500 Locust apartment. The concept comes to the city after wild success in New York City, where it has gained steam with everyone from fitness experts to celebs.

      What exactly is Rumble? A new approach to group fitness! The workout includes 10 rounds on the training bags, all set to modern hip-hop and mash-ups with crazy lighting effects to keep participants’ adrenaline pumping. For fitness buffs, Rumble combines high-intensity interval training, strength training, metabolic conditioning and cardio. The approach is centered on team fitness, with the concept that class members can motivate one another to give it their all. However, it’s not designed only for those who could give Rocky a run for his money (though they’re certainly encouraged to join!). Newbies are welcomed, with the trained fitness experts there to walk them through the ins and outs of the art of boxing. Each session even includes a pre-class for newcomers to get them warmed up to the routine.

      So if you’re looking for an exciting way to get in shape, meet some new folks and learn a bunch of new skills, get off that comfy couch at your 1500 Locust apartment and go check out Rumble!
