Release Boxing Boulder with Coach Robert

Release Boxing Boulder with Coach Robert at CrossFit Cielo

Fitness through Boxing is focused on learning proper punch combinations, footwork and stance. This is all performed with heavy bag work, shadow boxing and in partnership with your coach using hand pads. This is training as a boxer without the getting hit part. You will build many skills including strength, speed, agility, endurance and hand-eye coordination for a fun full body workout. Boxing will shift your body composition and unleash your inner strength. It perfectly combines full body toning with cardio that burns massive calories. The intensity of the workout will not only create endorphins that will make you feel good, but you will be building self-confidence and releasing stress and frustration in ways you’d never expect. Coach Robert promises that this is the most fun you’ll have training in a very supportive environment no matter your fitness level.

Coach Robert Garrison comes to us with 30 years experience with 47 amateur bouts including the Golden Gloves. His boxing life started at age 16 at Rocky’s Left Hook, which is famous for being the gym where Sylvester Stallone trained for the film “Rocky.” In his US Navy days, he added 4 years experience fighting in Smokers and special events as an exhibition boxer.

Before becoming a boxer, Robert competed in judo starting at the age of 14 and ultimately received his brown belt 2 years later and continued training on-board the USS Ranger aircraft carrier. Following the Navy, Robert began a boxing program for neighborhood youth for the City of Los Angeles Parks and Recreation Department so he has trained people of all ages to love boxing.

January Jump Lunge Challenge

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

The Challenge for January is Jumping Lunges!

Do a quantity of jumping lunges that equals 5 times the date (5 jumping lunges on Jan 1st, 10 jumping lunges on Jan 2nd, etc.).

Remember to start down on a knee, jumping and switching knees = 1 rep.  (Yes, this means that on odd numbered days, you will end up doing one more rep on one side than the other.  If you want to be even from side to side, change which knee you start with!)  Stay tall, try not to land the front foot before the back one.

Happy Jumping!
