Wear loose-fitting clothing and it is best not to eat at least one hour before coming to the gym. Appropriate footwear includes boxing shoes and sneakers with smooth soles. Please avoid the use of heavy perfume or cologne. No body piercing or loose jewelry items can be worn in workout areas or the ring.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before lesson starting time to warm up. To enable a prompt starting time, all students must have their hands wrapped by lesson start time. Hand wrapping "coaching" is available before lessons. Spring water is usually available. Please bring a water bottle with you.
All students must have their own handwraps and roll of 1, 1 1/2 or 2 inch sports/adhesive tape to start, and their own gloves by the start of their second class/lesson. We recommend Ringside "Mexican" style, 2 in. x 180 in. (15 ft.) handwraps for adults and older children and Ringside "junior" 2 in. x 120 in. (10 ft.) handwraps for children. We usually have some pairs available for sale. TKO and other handwraps are only 108" (9 ft.), which is too short for adequate protection for most people. Handwraps may be machine washed regularly (in a mesh laundry bag to reduce tangling). DO NOT put them in a clothes dryer - they will shrink!
Adhesive tape in 1" x 10 yd. (30 ft.) rolls and 2" x 10 yd. (30 ft.) rolls are also available at Box A Round. We recommend 16 oz. training gloves for adults (18 oz. for "sparring"), 14 oz. for "teens", and 12 oz. for women and young children. Leather gloves may be purchased from RINGSIDE through Box A Round.
Payment via cash or local check is due by the beginning of each lesson. Cancellations less than 36 hours before lesson are chargeable. Membership payments are due at your first visit each month.
