You vs. an Intelligent Punching Bag

A Midtown Boxing Class That Rates Your Knockouts

Yes, the South Beach Wine & Food Festival is here.

Drink. Feast. Do as you must.

But know that there will be a reckoning...

And that it will happen at the Box, a new sweat factory with high-tech boxing equipment that can tell you exactly how much heat your punch is packing, open now in Midtown. Check it out.

Different type of boxing class here. For one, the blue-fluorescent-lit main room sports 30 heavy bags that you won’t find anywhere else. See, they’re equipped with sensors that read how many punches you’ve landed and the force behind them before tabulating that data into a “knockout” score that shows up on two flat-screens in the front of the room. No pressure.

The classes last about 45 minutes. You’ll start off with a functional warm-up, move into shadowboxing and then work on those heavy bags before some core work and a cooldown set to... Janet Jackson. As one does.

But you can also opt for a one-on-one session and spend some time in an actual boxing ring in the back. And if you’re lucky, you might train with Alvin Davie—a three-time Golden Gloves winner who also happens to be one of the owners.

Again, no pressure.
