(high intensity interval training) and even Beginner Surf Lessons with FREE board rentals!
With it’s unique vibe, a heavy focus on technique and philosophy, intense cardiovascular conditioning and functional strength training mixed in with various classes, training at American Boxing is guaranteed, like “no other gym”.
People often ask, “What is class like?”, honestly, there is no answer to that. There is no typical class at American Boxing. Each class, each day, is catered and programmed based on the people in class, so it is more like a group personal training session. The only difference being that in class, you do what Coach wants you to do, and in Personal Training, it’s your decision to make or let Coach program based on your goals.
Classes are held 7 days per week and have a guarantee of 12 or fewer students to ensure the best possible learning environment! Expect to be challenged both mentally and physically most days with a great sense of camaraderie and accomplishment with 100% effort.
This is a “real talk” environment. We reach goals and have fun getting there! However, if your mindset, your diet, your habits or anything else, are getting in the way of your goals, or the goals of others, expect a frank conversation in the best interest of everyone involved. If you are overly sensitive to constructive criticism, sarcasm or adult humor (in adult classes), this may not be the gym for you. Technique, sweat, sarcasm and a family vibe are daily constants at American Boxing ;-)
World class technique is taught progressively by Coach Dave using his unique approach of analogies and micro-biomechanics (the smallest often untaught, critical movements). 1st Time Beginners and Seasoned Pros are both blown away with how fast they pick up the most challenging of techniques.
Respect and a 100% effort is expected of each person daily, although Coach Dave understands we are not 100% every day, therefore he insists on prompt and direct communication from participants upon arriving daily.
Kids Classes are Coach Dave’s favorite to teach. Kids are held accountable, act respectful and are very kind. They play and have their fun with Coach, who acts more like their fun uncle but keeps them inline like a Coach.
American Boxing directly serves the La Jolla, Pacific Beach and Clairemont areas but often houses students and fighters from all over San Diego county, Europe, Australia and Asia.
