Last night, Al, katmcd and I decided to give LA Boxing a try. LA Boxing has been around for a while and they always offer a free first class. I've wanted to try it for a long time, but was excited to finally do it. All I needed to pay for was the hand wraps. So we met up around 545 to purchase our wraps and they gave us a pair of gloves to use. I guess if you go there as a member you're expected to purchase your own gloves.
The class itself was pretty good. I thought I was going to die during the first 10 minutes of warm up. It was really fast-paced and we didn't use our gloves right away. Cardio, toning, and basically killing people was first. By half-way through the class I was feeling a lot better and started having a lot of fun. My arms were like spaghetti afterwards but I was pretty happy and the class just overall kicked my ass.
Then we went to talk to the guy about prices before we left. HOLY SH*T. The enrollment fee is $199, and montly payments are $120 per month if you contract for 1 year, and $94 per month if you contract for 2 years. If you wanted to be awesome, and pay for a year in full, that would cost you a whopping $1488! As much fun as I had in that class, and as great of a workout it was, I jut think those prices are incredibly high and really unreasonable.
So I tried it, I liked it, and I won't be doing it again.
