Sometimes a boxing class at the gym can seem more like housewives hip-hop than a real boxing class. That’s why if you want to experience a real fighter workout, you have to go where the pros go, and that’s Peter Welch’s Gym in South Boston. We are an old-school boxing gym with real rings, real equipment, and real fighters leading the class.

Peter Welch’s Gym Fighter Conditioning Classes enable people of any age and fitness level to workout like professional boxers – without the sparring. These classes are ideal for people wanting to lose weight, enhance their overall toning, seeking constant variety in their workouts and those looking to bring their overall conditioning to the highest levels.

The Fighter Conditioning class is a mix of young and old, guy and girl, serious fighters and newbies.

OUR FIGHTER CONDITIONING PROGRAMMING IS DIVERSE, STRUCTURED, AND “UNPLUGGED

If you are new to Peter Welch’s Gym, or still working your way into shape, we will show you easier modifications of exercises that a professional fighter would be doing. You will do dumbbell complexes, medicine ball drills, line exercises, heavy bag drills, P.A.T drills, triple ko combos, cardio combos – just to name a few exercises. Your trainer will guide and keep you motivated while offering tips for proper form and technique.

The Fighter Conditioning Classes are based on real fighter conditioning and everything is timed into rounds. The class begins with a few minutes of jump roping to get the heart rate up. Then comes the different rounds of varied exercises like punching a heavy bag and shadowboxing.

But in the middle of it all the trainer will yell out, “Squat thrusts!” which means you stop, drop, do an exercise similar to a burpee, and then go right back to the bag. Next comes sprints around the ring, suicides, and then more punching. Just when you think your arms are going to fall off, it’s time for push-ups and medicine ball work.

Then, of course, back to the bags. You will work the arms, abs, butt, thighs, and more. Boxing is all about having a strong core and center of gravity. Everyone is sweating, but loving every minute of it!
