Pink Gloves Boxing
Pink Gloves Boxing is a fitness program that delivers an amazing workout and an emotionally rewarding experience to small communities of women*. The fitness world is overflowing with great programs, but PGB is in a class of its own. It is the only program that puts a great deal of focus on social and emotional growth in addition to the amazing workout. At the end of each session, participants sit down and talk about the predetermined discussion topic of the day or we talk about what is on the minds of the participants. It’s a great way to have meaningful conversations with other women.
PGB teaches true competitive boxing techniques and skill but there is no direct contact in classes. At the end of the semester, members test to see if they are ready to progress to the next tier and earn their pink wraps (Tier 1) or pink gloves (Tier 2). There are 7 Tiers total!
Instructors are Pink Gloves Boxing trained and certified. Classes are 50 minutes.
