What do I do in Boxing class?

Independent MMA & Fitness of McDonough warm ups bjj


Each class starts with 15-20 minutes of warm-ups. Jumping rope is a classic way to warm up your body for Boxing that goes back decades.

The instructor will gather everyone in a circle and demonstrates the “technique of the day”. Students are then paired up and will drill the technique for 5-10 minutes. This process is repeated as the instructor goes more and more in depth to the technique and adds moves or addresses small details. This is the bulk of class and usually lasts 45 minutes.

As the coach moves deeper in to the class, multiple techniques will be demonstrated for the class. For about 10 minutes after each technique, students will drill back and forth with a partner. The coach will walk around and help individuals with questions.

Accomplish Your Goals

Train with experienced pros, hobbiests, or young amateurs! Training with Team Independent is like having a second home. See what others in our community are saying! 

Independent gym is my favorite place to be, it’s my safe place. It’s legit and all the trainers are professional. I started off with kickboxing/boxing and man has it changed my mental health. I recommend Coach Bolo and Coach Baba! Both are great trainers. The Athletics program is also incredibly professional and intense, I love that class. I recommend Coach Jeremy but I hear all the trainers are great! Most of the staff I’ve met is friendly and helpful, so the customer service is good in my book.

This is a great facility with great staff. I entered the 6 weeks challenge and met my goal! The class are challenging, but great. The staff are patient, hands-on, and very motivating. You get Classes are engaged and NEVER boring. the times are adequate as will. The facility, esp. the showers & bathrooms are always clean. I only have positive things about this place. If you stick to the plan they set, you will reach your goals.

Good luck EVER seeing this gym with less than 5 stars. The staff cares about you as much as your teammates. Wether you’ve been training 30 years or 30 mins, you’re Team Independent when you walk through the door. (Which is the far left door btw. The other two are no-go’s.)

I’ve been going to this gym for over 5 years. All the coaches including the two owners: Chris and Chad are great! They are professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I love the variety of classes offered and how they genuinely want you to succeed in your goals from weight loss, self defense to self confidence.
