Kobox | City
Feeling KO’d from the weekend, or in a mid-week slump? Transform your body’s chemistry at this nightclub meets fight club boxing den, brooding beneath the City…
For those tired of schlepping to Chelsea – rejoice! KOBOX has landed in London Wall, just moments from Liverpool Street station.
Find the same no frills high-intensity boxing workout and a co-branded retail capsule with Nike. The first of it’s kind in Europe (kind of a big deal…)
Pre-order your shake at ground level and descend a staircase to a gritty, warehouse hangout. Labyrinthine passages lead to a darkened studio with florescent lights and moody bass tracks that will leave you feeling like a creature of the night.
If Barry’s Bootcamp did boxing – this would be it.
Collect wraps and gloves from reception and start the class facing the bags or at the wall. Switch between intervals of jabs, hooks and upper cuts (following a fail-safe punch by numbers system) and punishing rounds of burpees, planks and mountain climbers for a full body workout.
Try a session with Ollie – a former professional footballer turned fitness model (who also holds a pilot license). We’re a big fan of his (ahem) playlists…
If a shake isn’t enough to satisfy you, head to Beany Green or Protein Haus for some post-workout fuel.
