Burn Calories At Title Boxing Club In Springfield

Floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee was Mohammed Ali’s mantra to capture the heavyweight title back in the 1970s and it’s still alive today at the Title Boxing Club in Springfield where all the floating and stinging is burning calories, improving the posture and instilling confidence without bloodying any noses.

Gloves in various sizes are available

According to the Springfield Connection, “The Title Boxing Club is in a shopping center right off Rolling Road next to the West Springfield Police Station, and the inside if full of punching bags, a mini boxing ring, weights, a locker area, and a little store where there are sweats, tee-shirts and boxing gloves in the 12-18 ounce size for the punching bag workouts. In the ring, a boxer would wear 10-12 ounce gloves, and the mixed martial arts (MMA) uses four-ounce gloves.”

As per Springfield Connection, “Some of the punchings does bring fighting into the picture too. A little bit rubs off on anyone that’s gone through the class. “You learn self-defense, you’ll learn the basics here in self-defense,” said Jacob Scharf, the general manager. Coelho noted the stance they teach for landing the punch, and noted how he saw it recently when there was an incident in the parking lot and one of the men shifted his weight onto the back foot.”
