BLOK London’s new boxing studio has caught our attention this spring, designed for high intensity workouts to achieve optimum levels of fitness, whilst refining technique and skill. This 2000 sq ft, raw warehouse space with exposed brick walls, a high, pitched wooden roof, surround sound system and a polished original floor is the ideal get fit destination for boxing lovers.
Their new range of workouts include Box & Bell, Boxcon and Boxing training across their 12 heavy Lonsdale bags, 14ft square ring for sparring and one on one training sessions, as well as speedballs and a range of strength building equipment. I tried Boxcon which was a tough and intensive workout, not for the faint hearted but extremely energising and strengthening, the teacher was amazing!
The raw industrial surroundings are conducive to hardcore training sessions that are not for the faint hearted. Expect a mix of pad work, bag drills as well as time in the ring. These dynamic classes will challenge and build core strength, focus and tenacity to enhance your boxing skills as well as getting you into peak physical condition.
All BLOK’s boxing classes are run by qualified boxing coaches, who have all fought in competitive boxing matches. Many have trained professional fighters, including world, European and British champions. They are all unique characters and this translates into their teaching
