Fitness in Boston: The Club by George Foreman III

 Have you heard of sweetgreen passport? It's a program offered by the healthy take-out joint sweetgreen (which I blogged about here) and if you become a member (free) they offer monthly fitness classes with different gyms around the city. Of course I signed up and the first one I tried this year was the brand new boxing gym known as "The Club" in Fort Point.
Founded by George Foreman III, the Club offers a wide range of activities- from boxing/sparring to circuit training to yoga. We did the circuit training (Box-FIIT) which consisted of two minute intervals at 10 different stations. After a tour of the stations, we did a thorough warm-up and then broke up into groups of 5. I really enjoyed the stations, especially the body bag and kettlebell ones. Most of the stations had a slow and steady flow to them- form and control over speed- which I liked.

There were around 50 of us in the class so it was a little chaotic at first but once we got going it was a killer full-body workout. At the end we did some final exercises that involved the whole group which was fun and distracted me from the actual burn that was happening- not a bad thing at all!
In short, the workout was awesome and I had a lot of fun doing it. I'd definitely try one of their Box-FIIT classes again or any other class they offer. Also, the facilities are fantastic- clean, fully stocked locker rooms, awesome gym set-up and overall look. Definitely worth a visit, you'll be glad you did!

Fitness Photography: Boxer Shannon of the Nonantum Boxing Club

When Shannon walked into our shoot and announced that she liked everything she's seen that I've done and that she'd do whatever I thought would be cool for the shoot, I knew we would have some fun. Since she loves boxing and owns a gym, the Nonantum Boxing Club, with her husband, we started with some jabs and crosses before moving outside and changing things up. She also brought the awesome Everlast wraps and pink gloves which made for great props.





love these gloves!
