Urban Boxing: what do users think?


Megan Eitel: This is the best boxing gym I’ve been to in DC. Coaches take every opportunity to improve individual form and technique while giving the entire class an excellent workout. Every coach provides an intense and unique workout. I especially love the attention to form and technique that are provided in both Josh and Jeremy’s classes. This gym, and all of its coaches have improved my boxing form, technique, strength and stamina.
Response: Hi Megan. Awesome! Super happy to hear that! We appreciate the kind words

Jeff Wong: Urban boxing is legit. Josh, Crane, and Arturo were all extremely friendly and highly skilled. They've designed classes to include a great combination between intense workouts while also teaching technique/skill. If you're wondering if you should go to Urban Boxing in Foggy Bottom, at least pop in and talk to staff. You won't be disappointed!

Andrew Monaghan: What a great gym! Crane gave me a warm welcome and all the coaches I worked with - Josh, Charles, Arturo and Jordan really knew their stuff (Arturo has the best taste in music though!). I came for the boxing - which was really good, and then started on kickboxing too... Thank you! I learnt a lot and can't recommend it highly enough... I hope to be back one day soon!

Vanessa Salazar: 100% recommend Urban Boxing to anyone looking for a high-quality boxing gym! All of the coaches are knowledgeable and friendly. All levels are welcome! Kickboxing with Ify on Wednesday’s are awesome!
Response: Thanks Vanessa! You rock :)

Brittany Bennett: I love this gym. I joined with zero boxing experience and have always found the coaches to be encouraging, enthusiastic, and very knowledgable about the sport. The classes are tough workouts, but I'm definitely in better shape now than I was when I started. The coaches do a great job getting around to everyone to offer more personalized instruction and pay a lot of attention to technique. As a woman, it's a bit nerve-racking to jump into a male-dominated sport, but I've always felt super comfortable and uplifted by coaches, staff, and other students at Urban Boxing. The classes are a good mix of genders, too. If it's your first time taking a boxing class, make sure you sign up for one of the introductory levels. It's a fun, supportive gym and a great workout! Definitely recommend.
Response: Thanks Brittany!

Anne Richardson: When my 14 yo son said to me “mom, I want to try boxing” I thought: “great! But how on earth do I get into the boxing world not knowing anything , and, it’s it going to be an ok place for a kid?” UB was incredible, they walked him through the into process, treated him like a kid with kindness but also as a serious athlete. They are patient, kind, and approachable. Christian and Josh in particular, are spectacular trainers and really great people. Crane is at the desk and is informed, kind, and a super friendly presence to greet you. My son is certainly challenged, and leaves the place feeling so great about himself every time:like going to church! We love UB and will continue to train there as long as we can!

Kara Holbrook: Best boxing gym in DC! Not only is it the hardest workout, but it's in a fun, welcoming, and supportive environment. I felt so welcomed by Crane, Arturo & the entire rest of the team when I first joined in January. They have such variety in their classes/class times that it's easily accessible for everyone. Crane is the BEST and is so accommodating to everyone at the gym!! thank you Urban Boxing!
Response: Hello kara! Thanks a million for your kind-hearted review! Crane and Arturo Truly are some of the most kind hearted people i have came upon! Here at urban boxing we do not gatekeeper boxing! Everybody is welcome!

Nicolette DeLorenzo: I love urban boxing! The coaches are professionals, and yet make boxing feel accessible. I started kickboxing, then transitioned to taking all classes. You get the opportunity to train, spar, develop athletically and strategically. Would recommend urban boxing to anyone looking for not only a new workout routine, but a chance to feel empowered and strong inside and out!
Response: Thanks Nicolette, we love you back!

JLG: I have spent the past 4 months going to URBAN boxing in DC to train both one on one and through their group classes. My body has transformed. I went from 180lbs to 165lbs, feel stronger than ever, all while having fun. Wether you want more stamina, get in shape, loose weight, etc etc, URBAN boxing is an excellent choice with excellent coaches. If you are on the fence, trust me and just come in for one class. I cannot more recommend Krane and his team of coaches. Joshua, Jordan and Randal are my three favorite coaches for different reasons. and depending on the type of workout you want what's awesome is that they each have their own style. Joshua is technical the most sound, he is a traditional boxer and focuses on getting it done right while building up your core. there are no two same workouts with joshua. I also recommend his 1:1. Jordan gets you sweating in no time with a brutally good mix of HIIT and boxing. Randal on the weekends reaches you different styles of boxing, with different stands and brings a fun atmosphere where everyone participates or else push ups for everyone. LOVE IT! Krane the manager is himself a gym nut and will help you with anything you need. The gym is super clean, people all have masks and I feel super safe going. Will you be sore after workouts? YES, but its functionally sore. I actually look forward to being sore, I know its crazy but true. Look no further if you want a diverse group of folks working out from all ages, background and styles. So many classes are available, boxing, kickboxing, abs, etc etc. Come check it out. Highly recommended!!! Don't worry if you know how to box or not, no matter your level, you will get a workout in and progress no matter your goals.
Response: You rock! Thanks so much for the review!

Gabriel Söderberg: Super professional, honest, and with awesome atmosphere. No binding multi-month or yearly contracts for training- just as it should be. Also, awesome trainers and staff - totally recommend training here.
Response: Thanks so much Gabriel!

Bethesda Boxing & Kickboxing Academy: what do users think?


Tiffani Kennedy: I've been attending classes at Bethesda Boxing since February 2018. I absolutely love this gym! I've taken classes with Ken, Julie and Rafael. I ALWAYS leave their classes feeling stronger and motivated. The instructors really care about their students and that is made very clear in the amount of individual attention they give to each and every individual boxer. Every friend I've brought with me has either returned for a second class or are planning on their next visit. Highly recommend Bethesda Boxing to any all people interested in Boxing and Kickboxing. You'll get an excellent work out and honestly feel like you could be featured as a Amazonian in the next Wonder Woman (or, maybe those are just my dreams, haha).

Caitlynn Barcheski: Truly one of the best gyms I have ever been to. I belonged previously to another boxing gym in the area where I felt the criticism was inconsistent based on the instructor and decided to switch. At BBKA they provide you with many class variations, while providing fun, personable, reliable instructors. All instructors focus on your fitness, technique, while making you enjoy the sweat! Unfortunately, need to move out of the area and I'm sad to leave, but whatever gym I join next has big gloves to fill!

Anna Breiteneder: I love BBKA! Ken is really nice and always has a smile on the face and makes jokes. You feel like a part of their boxing family from the moment you step in the room. Julie is the absolute best! She is really encouraging and always in a good mood. I only started kickboxing a short while ago but I feel as if I‘ve already made a good progress. They always take their time to talk to everyone individually and show interest in you as a person! Every lesson is different and so much fun!! Would recommend 11/10!

Kim Bohince: Bethesda Boxing is hands-down the best boxing studio for beginners, intermediate and advanced individuals who want to feel mentally and physically powerful. I attend classes three times a week, and always immediately look forward to the next. Ken, the owner, is fantastic and makes a point to know your name and you genuinely feel like part of the Bethesda Boxing family. Base is my favorite trainer, who always pushes you to your max, varies the workouts, is beyond helpful, and wants you to be your best self. You will thank yourself for signing up, I promise you!
Response: Thank you so much Kim for taking the time to write a review. We are happy you like our offerings.

Caitlin Caselli: Being someone who moved here knowing no one, BBKA has provided me with a community. I look forward to coming to class almost everyday and I have learned a lot. The instructors are highly qualified and genuinely care about you learning the skills. Classes start on time and get you sweating, I guarantee you’ll be sore after your first couple classes but in the best way. Instructors, owner and fellow boxers and kickboxers keep tabs on each other and make sure they are doing well outside of the gym as well. The only thing that would ever make me leave this gym is when I have to move again.

Wolf Mina: I love BBKA! I’ve been a long time member and still enjoy it. The team always welcomes you with smiles and happiness. At one point I was exercising while pregnant and Julie was excellent. She always made sure I would not hurt myself. Now I have my baby and they are SUPER ACCOMMODATING! I can workout and bring my little one with me, and everybody is nice to her. Now it’s like a family for her too because she sees them on a regular basis. This Club is great!

Michelle Stinson: I love Bethesda Boxing & Kickboxing Academy! I've been attending classes for two years, and I still consider them really tough workouts. The trainers, like Ken and Base don't let you get away with taking it easy--but they're also very motivating and like to play around while pushing you to your limits. If you're looking for an awesome workout near downtown Bethesda, I highly recommend coming in for a free trial class.

Le Bustiere Boutique: Excellent gym for kickboxing and boxing classes. All the trainers are motivational and will help you get that form and extra rep in. Highly recommend them for a boxing class or functional strength training class. We have been coming here for a while and love it! Great for getting those fitness new years resolutions complete.

Deirdre Angelastro: Hands down best workout for Kids and Adults-- a true Family Boxing Gym! Ken started an Autism Boxing Program that is not only a great workout but my son feels empowered and engaged! He looks forward to going every time!

Hannah: I have been coming here for about nine months, and every time I come in, I have a great time. Everyone is incredibly supportive and more than willing to provide assistance. There are many options regarding class rigor, which is perfect for those who are beginners or pros. When I was beginning, the instructor was so helpful, and I was paired with someone who helped me go through the motions. I haven’t had a single negative experience here, and I highly recommend coming here!

NUBOXX: what do users think?


Callie Riley: I've been in DC for many years and tried many of the "bigger" gyms--Nuboxx has been far and away my favorite. I've been injured (not boxing related!) for the past few months and was anxiously awaiting being cleared to return to the studio because my first several months here made me feel the strongest I had in years. The studio is beautiful; the coaches are kind but will push you hard while focusing on technique to avoid injury; the community of people is fantastic; and, as a bonus, it's woman-owned.

Jason Mann: I have been taking Harold's classes at U St consistently twice a week during my 90 day training program. Harold always goes above and beyond to make his classes intense, fun and safe. Every workout he brings new and creative elements which push our fitness and boxing skills. He is always accommodating to the skill level of each individual participant which makes everyone feel welcomed, yet challenged. He is consistently giving positive feedback and constructive criticism. Harold takes health and safety seriously by keeping us socially distant when we can be, and cleaning equipment during and after the workout. Every time I leave Harold's classes I feel like a better version of myself, both physically and mentally. Harold Hart is a 10/10 coach!!!

Katherine Cotsonas: NUBOXX personal training totally saved me during COVID. Not only was it safe according to all protocols, the facility is beautiful and new, and the coaching staff is top notch. The workouts are amazingly, effective too—I started at twice a week and upped my training to three times a week. Eric’s knowledge and expertise is unmatched, and his ability to motivate and push you is not like anything I’ve ever experienced—and I’ve tried basically every workout when it comes to boutique fitness. Seriously—sign up—you won’t regret it.

dekexz19: Really great establishment. Has a variety of equipment and can get you into shape at any fitness level. Moe is an especially helpful and understanding trainer who helped me get the most out of my workout🔥

R.P.: I didn’t think I was the personal training type. I loved group fitness classes and always thought I'd never do anything else. But with the arrival of the pandemic - not only were my go to classes shutdown, but my fitness routine - which I relied on to keep my mental health in check - was in peril. So I made the leap and started personal training with Que at NUBOXX. And let me tell you it saved me. I’ve been working with Que for 6+ months. I feel challenged at every session. He is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and motivating. I love that he is so personable and very relatable - it makes the workouts and experience that much more fun. With a program designed specifically for me, I have never felt or looked stronger. My only regret is I didn’t start this years ago. Can’t recommend it enough!

Michael Kearney: NUBOXX has been a life saver. I started back in November as a way to get myself out of the covid funk. Working with Eric over the past 8 months has given me the strength, mental clarity and focus that friends and family can see. Highly recommended for anyone at any fitness level. Boxing and strength training is, in my opinion, the best form of workout.

Celina Ticoll-Ramirez: I've been working Donte since October and have never felt stronger. Training at NUBOXX has been challenging, but also so fun because of the supportive community. I used to be so scared of lifting, but working out at NUBOXX and with Donte has shown me there's nothing to be afraid of and gotten me to a point that I feel confident doing It. Plus, I've found a new love for boxing. I've been pushed out of my comfort zone in the best ways.

Logan Dobson: A wonderful boxing gym for fighters of ever level -- brand new up to talented local amateurs. The coaching staff is friendly and accessible, the facilities are clean and well-maintained. I myself started coming after I'd been boxing for a few years, but I've seen plenty of people show up with no experience at all and get schooled correctly. Personal training is available and will wear you out in a smart, thoughtful way. Fully recommend.

Elizabeth Engel: I've been a Nuboxx member and fan for two years now. Although I haven't felt comfortable going into the gym since the shutdown started in March 2020, I've been training outdoors with Donte once a week religiously. Knowing that I have that weekly appointment coming has helped keep me focused on the days in between. Thanks to Donte's dedication, persistence, care, knowledge, and skill, I think I'm actually going to be a better boxer when this is all over than I was before, even though I haven't been in the gym for 11+ months (although I can't wait to get back!).

Andrea Holtermann: The personal training services here are amazing! I've been going to Eric for 6 months and the results are great. The training is super personalized to your needs and they do a great job of tracking your performance.

Downtown Boxing Club: what do users think?


Nikki Smith: Without a doubt the most rewarding and enjoyable workout experience I've ever had. Been a member (no contract; pay-as-you-go) for 4+ years now. I lost 30 pounds and have kept it off. Went from running an 11-minute mile pace to a best of 7:28 per mile largely because of the endurance and breathing techniques I've developed through boxing. I had never boxed before I joined this gym, but I was a competitive athlete until college. I joined because I wanted to get fit again after too many years of sedentary lifestyle, and now I'm in the best shape of my life. I feel happier and more confident. I love the sense of community this gym offers. A lot of the same folks, young professionals, men and women, have been coming here for years. New folks are always welcome. We help each other. Group workouts mean we suffer together. :-) Having a trainer creates a sense of accountability, too. I find it motivates me more than a regular gym. Our trainer knows what he's talking about, and he invests in every member, no matter the experience level or gender, any of that. As a testament to the quality of his training, we have three guys who have won belts and accolades like "All American." (Sparring is optional, though, and most people don't spar.) He runs this gym by himself, too, a small business owner. Offering trials or customized sessions would take his attention away from members, which wouldn't be fair. ** Readers may also notice from reviews that DBC has a loyal following of athletes who love this gym and our trainer. Negative reviews tend to come from salty people who have not spent real time at the gym and, quite frankly, have no idea what they are missing in terms of community and fitness. More bag time for the rest of us!

Edson Florez: This ain’t a gym this is a movement. Through the pandemic this club got better. The people that have joined this community at Downtown Boxing Club are stronger for it. Thank you for showing me what passion fitness really looks and feels like. 🙏🏽

Karen Livingston: DBC is like no other boxing gym in DC. I’ve trained here for years for a lot of reasons. To start, I saw immediate and lasting results in my overall conditioning. I value and respect the trainers’ methods and guidance. I appreciate how the classes are structured. I’m able to focus on improving my technique while figuring things out at my own pace. It’s a welcoming and supportive environment for new or experienced boxers, regardless of whether you’re there for a serious workout or sparring in the ring.

Vina Basas: Hands down the best boxing gym/club in the city. This is the only gym in the city I've tried that gives the kind of attention to correct form and technique that really sets you up for success (and avoid injuries!). Aaron is the best coach I've work with, he will push you to your limit to get you to the next level. I also love how the student boxers and coaches have a pretty solid "family feel" to it - very much like old school boxing gyms do. I can't wait to get back in the ring!!!

Family Lutz: I've been boxing with DBC for 5 years now. When I came in, I knew nothing. Dave instilled a love of the sport in me. The community welcomed me and helped me grow. Over the past year, Aaron has taken my skills to the next level. He is down to earth, friendly, and a wonderful teacher. What started as a sometime hobby has turned into a big part of my life of which I am very proud.

Anthony Istrico: Hands down the greatest workout you can get. Dave doesn’t manage a gym, he manages a community, a family. He is a wealth of knowledge and if you’re willing to learn, this is the place. You’ll get the best workout of your life, you’ll make solid connections and you’ll learn how to box. You won’t have to punch it out to the beat, listen to loud music or deal with anybody who’s looking to become the next boxing influencer. This is a real boxing gym, run by a real boxer.

Ben Hukill: I've worked with Aaron for six months now. His workouts are structured to focus on technical boxing and cardio, and he trained me for my first amateur bout. Great workout each time. He's very responsive and it's easy to communicate with him. Highly recommend

Dan Murphy: Absolutely love working with Dave and Aaron at Downtown. Hooked up with them last summer when I moved to DC. I’d been boxing for a decade or so and was having trouble finding a gym I like here, but have now learned a ton from both of these guys and have a ton of fun sparring with Aaron and other DBC folks. It’s a great group of people that love boxing.

Isaac Bloom: I love DBC. I've gotten to learn the basics of boxing in a personalized and super friendly way, and I the workout is varied and awesome. My punches are better, I'm getting faster, I can go longer, and the whole thing is fun as hell. I've literally recommended it to all of my friends.

Miguel Perez: This is the perfect place for beginners and laying the ground work for boxing. Dave is really knowledgeable, it might feel like you start off slow but he really lays a foundation for what you need to excel. I have since moved on to another gym and have competed but I owe the foundation of my work at DBC.

Rumble Boxing - DC: what do users think?


Nono Khiengsombath: I love Rumble. It’s such an amazing workout class and great addition to any work out regime you may have. My favorite instructor is Mona because she’s so interactive with her class. She checks in and corrects your form which I feel is so important for people who are new or for who continue to do HIT classes like this. The staff is incredibly excellent as well. Amazing energy every time ! And all the instructors are great that I have had. ❤️

Natalie: If I could give Rumble 10 stars I would. I started coming here 6 months after major ankle surgery and I was very nervous about keeping up. 6 weeks later and I see how much stronger I've gotten. I leave every class feeling tired but happy. Rumble is such a fantastic full-body workout and it's FUN. My favorite instructor is Arnie because he will 100% hold you accountable for your workout but he is also supportive and really cares about everyone in his class. I have had to modify exercises a few times but I still feel like I work myself to the max. The only small negative with Rumble is the lack of afternoon classes on the weekends. I am not a morning person and would love to see classes go to 2-3pm, rather than ending around 1pm.

Joshua Beer City Bandit DeJong: I had a great time at Rumble! I was just looking for a random boxing gym to maybe just hit a bag of get some sparring in stumbled into this place. The staff was super friendly right off the bat and even hooked me up with a free pair of wraps for my first class just for signing up. As for the class itself, I can't feel my arms. I kept thinking it was going to be over, and they kept adding stuff. So first there's a warm-up and then a few rounds of hitting the water bag. Then you go over to the other side where you do some weights, and I thought that would be the end, so I went a little harder on the waist than I should have, and when the rounds ended, I heard the instructor say "All right everybody back to the other side!" And I was like... "Other side? Oh my god. I'm supposed to throw more punches after this?!" But I dug deep and rallied even though I was worried I might puke at one point, but I was really feeding off the music and the group environment to push through. Would definitely recommend for a great workout. Oh, and the facilities are great! Free towels, body wash, face wash, shampoo, conditioner, lotions, shaving cream, oh my! And all of it was better than the stuff at my house. 😅 Definitely will be returning sometime soon. 🥊🥊

Lindsey Casella: Ambience of studio is well worth the price of the class. Bring your own gloves, wrap, and water and all extra amenities are free of charge! Shower is inclusive of drybar products and lockers offer free charging. The physical classes have a great atmosphere and are uplifting. Instructors are well-versed and support you well-beyond any other studio, throughout the class. Very happy they opened this location in DC. :)
Response: Lindsey! Happy to have you a part of the RUMBLE fam. Can't wait to have you back in soon! Erika Hammond, Founding Trainer

Lauren Schmitz: I went to my first class this week and will definitely go back! The people checking me in obviously like working there and are energetic to get you started. I took Arnie’s class and it kicked my butt, in a great way. He modeled all of the moves and kept the workout upbeat and challenging. He played great music and reminded me to push it until the end! I would recommend Arnie’s class to everyone!
Response: Lauren! Happy to have you a part of the RUMBLE fam. Arnie loves having you throw down for 10 rounds with him. See you back in soon! Erika Hammond, Founding Trainer

Amee Bhavsar: Badass is how I feel every time I leave Rumble, especially with Arnie and Mona’s classes. The workout is always unique and tailored to the instructors expertise and background. They are extremely well versed about form and I especially want to give props to Arnie’s combos! I’ve been boxing for ten years and been to a variety of studios. Also the facilities and staff are stellar! Go get yo’ rumble on!
Response: Amee! You ARE a BAD@$$. Mona and Arnie love having you crush it in their classes! Sara, Team Rumble

Alycia Deihs: I have been taking classes with Arnie since the day the studio opened its doors and I am hooked. He is one of the best instructors I have encountered in the DC area. He is different. He always brings the fire with his playlists and energy and the workouts never disappoint. Rumble provides all of the amenities you will need(showers, towels, dry bar products, etc) to freshen up and get on with your day or night. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first class or your 50th - you’re sure to get in a great work out and most importantly you’ll enjoy yourself while you’re doing it.
Response: Alycia! Arnie loves having you throw down with him. See you back on the bags soon! Erika Hammond, Founding Trainer

Cortney Vaughan: I took Arnie's class and it was my first time in boxing gloves in front of a punching bag ever. However, I caught on extremely quickly and Arnie's guidance and energy made the class fun and empowering. It is the perfect workout for someone looking to get strong and feel great while doing it. Arnie's music definitely helped too!! Highly recommend!!
Response: Cortney! First of all, welcome to the Rumble fam! Arnie loved having you in class. We'll see you back in the studio soon! Sara, Team Rumble

Katherine Gwyn: Rumble is my favorite boxing studio in DC! Arnie's classes are the best- he's great at giving a challenging workout while making it fun at the same time. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good workout!
Response: Katherine! We love having you a part of the RUMBLE fam. Erika Hammond, Founding Trainer

Rachel Foster: I was excited to try Rumble because I've seen it all over social media and I've been wanting to get into boxing! PROS: Registering for a class was easy and the front desk staff was super nice and helpful. The wraps were only $5 bucks and I got to keep them which was great! The class was high-energy, dark with bright red lights, and great music. Lots of motivation! CONS: The price. HOLY COW this place is expensive. For me, the class is way too similar to Orangetheory and I was looking for a more authentic boxing class (which I've now found with TITLE Boxing.) If you are new to boxing like me, the class might prove to be too fast paced for your first few classes. The instructors go very quickly and on top of it being loud, it is dark and if you're in the back it's hard to see what they are doing to accompany what they're saying (which you may not be able to hear in the first place!) Overall, a decent experience. I will probably go back here and there when I find myself wanting to switch up my Orangetheory/TITLE routine. It's a nice combination of the two.
Response: Hi Rachel! Thanks for checking out Rumble! Happy to hear that you felt motivated during class & that the front desk was helpful! We have a few different class packages like the First Time series (buy one, get one on us!) and the Starter-3-pack ($25/class), which brings each class price down. Hope this helps! Sara, Team Rumble

Nuboxx: what do users think?


Brian Doty: Both the H St and U St locations are top notch! Started going to Nuboxx from ClassPass and instantly got hooked and signed up for my own membership. It’s so much more than a boxing gym, it really this awesome community where the owners and coaches get to know you and are there to help you meet your goals.

Kristina Skinner: Nuboxx is my happy place! I recently moved to DC and was seeking a place to get back into boxing and back into shape. I started training with Eric and got hooked instantly. He keeps the workouts challenging, but also manages to make me laugh while he's also making my fat cry. He has been a true partner in working with me on transforming my body - from sharing nutrition guidance to switching up our workouts to achieve specific goals. He also doesn't compromise on form - whether it be my boxing footwork or deadlift posture, he is always pushing me to do better. Highly recommend Nuboxx private training to anyone looking for a fitness plan that is fun, challenging, and effective.

Francesca Caal Skonos: I would give Nuboxx 10 stars if Google let me! Incredible family like atmosphere! Q and Moe are amazing coaches and Rachel, the owner, is AMAZING! I have been going to the H Street location weekly for 8 months and I am hooked! 10/10 would recommend!

Nate Wong: Pape, Donte, Will and team are all stars. The coaching is tailored for skill level and each coach ensures that the fundamentals are strong. I especially like having different coaches rotate since act has their own style. Donte helps me with my technique and fast punch combinations, while Pape works cardio and speed with punches. Will ties in footwork and blocks to punching combinations, so throughout a given week I feel like I’m getting a full boxing work out. There’s also a good energy and camaraderie that’s welcoming to everyone no matter if you’ve been boxing for years or it’s your first day. I’ve been coming for the past 3 years coming in with 0 experience. Kudos!

Jamie Morgan: Disappointing from boxing gym perspective. Conditioning was decent. Very little technical training or adjustments were provided, and what was given was poor. If you have any martial arts training, or are looking to learn to fight and defend yourself, I recommend another gym. Not a bad place if you’re more interested in the physical workout.
Response: Hi Jamie, Thank you for sharing your experience. We’re sorry to hear that you were disappointed. We recommend starting with our Technical Boxing class, which is structured to focus on technique and skill. The 30/30 class you took is designed to push and challenge you once boxing technique has been developed. We’d love to have you back in for a Technical Boxing class. Please email us at info@nuboxxfitness.com with any other questions or concerns. Thanks again for sharing this experience! – Team NUBOXX

K. Patie: I've been at Nuboxx for nearly a year now, and can't say enough good things about it! Eric is AMAZING and simply a lifesaver. After a bad knee injury, I was frustrated with lack of progress and pain relief from physical therapy. I reached out to Eric, who has patiently worked with me to rebuild strength--and to get past my own fear--to where I'm now able to box, lift, and keep up with high intensity workouts without pain, even without a brace, for the first time in YEARS! Having surpassed my initial goals, he continues to push me to get better, whether in form, strength or technique. More recently I've started the group classes, and the coaches keep it tough, fun, and fresh every time. Highly recommend!

Christopher Bailey: Best workout experience I've ever had that keeps me engaged and excited to go to the gym. The staff is very intelligent, patient, and encouraging. They work well with all experience levels and really push you to improve your skills and technique. The community of members are nice, supportive, and just as excited to be there. I travel all over the U.S. for work and tend to go to LA Fitness, Orange Theory, and other gyms on the road, but nothing compares to Nuboxx. I highly recommended it.

Jim McNamara: I’ve been going to this gym for the past 3 months and it is easily the most fun I’ve had exercising. I had no previous boxing experience and tried it out of curiosity. It has become my favorite hobby, as well as a consistently great workout. The coaches are both patient and motivating. The facilities are very nice. I’d recommend it to anyone.

Shannon Mehaffey: Bachelorette party at nuboxx! We had a bachelorette event at NUBOXX and the bride and bachelorette attendees could not have loved it more. Prior to the boxing class, Rachel and management were very easy to communicate with and happily answered all of my questions regarding booking, cost, other details. The cost was very affordable and more reasonable than other fitness studios in the area I had called for a private class. On the day of, the team at NUBOXX had set up a great table of NUBOXX gear for all of the ladies as well as a gift for the bride. The bride felt so special! The class itself KICKED OUR BUTTS. It was fun, lighthearted, and a great workout. Lauren was our instructor and we Would 10/10 recommend her for your class! She was awesome! Rachel and the team took pictures throughout our class for us and we are so grateful to have the afternoon’s memories documented. NUBOXX partnered with South Block juice co to offer us delish juices at the end of class and we ended up staying for an hour after the class in the lobby just enjoying the juice and good company. It made for a relaxed atmosphere and time to celebrate the bride-to-be! Thanks so much, NUBOXX! We all hope to come back soon.

Monica Puerto: This is my second boxing gym and it has been a great experience. The teachers are friendly and will go at your pace but also challenge you. The studio is really clean, elegant, and has lockers. The receptionist is always so kind and helpful and taught me how to properly wrap my hands.

BOOMBOX Boxing Club: what do users think?


asia atkins: Joining BOOMBOX has been so great for both my mental and physical health! The studio is clean, inviting, and has a well-lit, open concept with lots of natural light. Not to mention the location, which is right across the street from the Nationals stadium! The classes are super fun and engaging, and make 50 minutes feel like five! It's truly a great workout for all ages and fitness levels. All of the coaches and staff are hospitable, and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have any questions answered. 100/10!! I highly recommend for anyone looking for an affordable, high quality workout within a fun community!
Response: Thank you Asia for being a part of this community! We hope to continue to support you in your journey!

Jasmine: I started going to Boombox consistently after doing their sustainability challenge in January 2022. First heard about them in 2020 but officially got a membership in January. I really enjoy this studio and love the instructors. The music is really high pace and keeps me upbeat. Amazing workout that engages all parts of your body. Also, the participants who attend the class are super friendly and I love how welcoming the staff are. They show much appreciation to to us fighters. Boombox is a vibe! 💪🏾
Response: Jasmine you are part of the reason why we do this. Thank you for sharing your energy with us every week!

Esse Darden: Studio with scheduled classes, personal sessions in their ring. Gloves provided, and merchandise available...thanks to Bridgette for all the info.
Response: Hi Esse! Thank you so much for fighting with us and sharing your feedback!

Samantha Hinkls: This business has absolutely no issues with destroying personal property. They put a massive sticker on my car obstructing my view to drive to advertise their business, and it has been impossible to get off. I am all for businesses advertising their services and don't mind if I find a paper advertisement under my windshield wiper, but costing someone money to get a massive sticker removed from their vehicle crosses the line. All of my neighbors on my block had this happen to them as well. This business needs to be get in trouble for their appalling behavior!
Response: Hi Samantha, thank you for your comment but I'm afraid you're referring to another business. BOOMBOX does not use paper advertisements, nor have we ever used or placed stickers on vehicles. I think there may be some confusion between our business here in the Navy Yard and another. However, I am sorry about your experience. If you would like to connect with us to help determine who placed a sticker on your car, we will be happy to help. Please contact our studio.

Roderick Torrrence: I Was interested In the studio and the Assistant Manager Saron Amare was very friendly and took her time explaining the facility and program to me.
Response: We love that you came by to visit us Roderick! We look forward to having you back! We will certainly share your feedback with Saron.

MD B: You really get a great workout and encouragement throughout. They do provide boxing gloves to borrow for the class and handwraps. I highly suggest Cobra or Reggie.
Response: Thank you! We agree, they are great coaches!

Dreux D: I love Boombox! Incredible trainers and fun workouts! Would definitely recommend going to get in shape or to just have a good sweat session!
Response: Thank you Dreux!

Richard Maurice: The first thought that comes to mind when I think of Boombox is "community". Followed by "family" then "gym". I had heard about Boombox for months before I finally attended a class. My friend is a regular & dragged me to class during their "Friendsgiving" promotion in November. To say I was nervous was an understatement. I'm one of those guys who wants to get in shape but doesn't really feel like putting in the work to do it. After some prodding I reluctantly agreed to come to AJ's Saturday 10:15a class. The first thing that impressed me was the location. Right in the heart of Navy Yard its Metro accessible & literally right off the highway so getting there wouldn't be a problem. I walked in & was greeted by a large smile & a friendly greeting by the front desk staff. They saw I was a first timer and helped me get situated. I got my wraps and gloves & was ready to go... except I didn't know how to wrap my hands! Sensing this one of the staff members came over and showed me how to do it. As we waited for class to start I made conversation with a few "regulars" who welcomed me & told me I was in for a good workout. Still nervous I took their word for it & began observing the energy in the waiting area. Everyone was excited! Like really excited. Again I'm not a gym guy but in my occasional visits to Gold's I never see people smiling about the upcoming punishment they are about to endure! As I'm getting in my zone I hear a loud BOOMING voice over the loudspeaker. "10:15 I hope you're READY cause we are going to get it today!" On cue the doors to the gym opened & immediately I'm impressed by the layout & aesthetics. Numbered wrecking ball heavy bags were dangling from the ceilings, the lights were dim & there were mirrors for walls. The music was (for lack of a better word) BOOMING (this class was southern hip hop) & upon entry we were greeted by Coach AJ. In all transparency AJ & I are friends so when she saw me she says "Oooh you finally decided to come join me!!!" But what really stuck out to me was that she had that same energy & love for everyone who walked into the gym. I walk in & see that my bag is right in the front. I look to see if there is space in the back so if I happen to pass out I won't disturb the flow of the class, but to my chagrin there wasn't. The first few minutes of the class AJ demonstrates the punches and defensive maneuvers we would be using during class 1. Jab 2. Cross 3. Front Hook 4. Back Hook 5. Front Uppercut 6. Rear Uppercut 7.Slip 8. Roll Easy enough I suppose. With the basics down it was time to work. And boy did we work. Boombox is structured like an actual boxing match so each circuit is 3 minutes long. The first circuit was the warmup. And let me tell you... I was almost ready to throw in the towel. Jumping jacks, high knees to butt kicks back to high knees and some other movements that made me say "huh". But my heart was racing and the sweat was coming down. "Alright grab some water and get those gloves on" I slowly walk to where my gloves and more importantly where my water was. Take a sip and try to catch my breath. "Fighters you have 20 seconds!" WAIT! Just like boxing a 3 minute round & 1 minute rest. So I scramble to put on my gloves and get back in front of my bag. Now its time to actually box! AJ demonstrates the first combination. "Jab/back hook/roll/front hook" With Three Six mafia blaring in the background I get in my boxing stance. "Tear the club up" - 'Jab' "Tear the club up"- 'Back hook' "Tear the club up" - 'Front Hook' As if on cue AJ comes jumping over on beat & shows me the proper way to do the combo. The rest of the class was a blur but afterwards I knew one thing. I was hooked! I was tired but that good tired after you know you put in work. Now unless I'm traveling you'll see me with my Boombox family on Saturday mornings. And even though I may have become one of the 'regulars' the guys at the front desk still don't get mad b/c I haven't figured out how to wrap my hands yet :-)

ChiChi: Yall this place is AMAZING! From the front desk staff and coaches. The best money i spend every month, is on their membership class. My favorite classes are Coach Angela, David and Reggie (no particular order lol). Im here at least 3-4 times a week. So far ive gotten 3 of my friends to come because they see how fun and great it is. They love it too! 😂 You will always get a full body workout (warm up/stretch, boxing, strength/core, and a cool down/mini yoga stretch). Boombox is THE place to be. PERIODT OK!
Response: Thank you so much for your feedback and rating. The feedback is always appreciated. We hope to see you again real soon.

Ashton Rohmer: What an awesome gym. It's a bit different than more "traditional" gyms, but the vibe is fun and you get an incredible workout. If you've never boxed before, I recommend David or Lauren's classes - I found them a bit easier to follow. Thankful to have this asset in my community!
Response: Thanks Ashton for sharing your feedback on your visit to BOOMBOX! We certainly are excited about being a part of this community and look forward to your next visit!

Urban Boxing Bethesda: what do users think?


Kevin Scott: For those who have never boxed and are hoping to find a way to lose weight and improve overall fitness, this is the place for you. From requesting a free first class session to being a member for 2 months now, I can’t say enough about how great this place is. The coaches and members are very encouraging and friendly, making a great atmosphere overall. I’ve never felt judged for my (lack of) technique and the more experienced boxers have provided me with bits of advice when I need it. Based on my work schedule, I’ve only attended Coach David’s classes, which have been exactly what I needed. He’s great at pushing you to work harder, but will also praise you for your improvements. I’ve also only heard great things about all of the other coaches, so you can’t go wrong with anyone. It’s definitely a place where you get out what you put into it, but everything is set up to lead you to success. I wish I joined sooner, but late is better than never.
Response: Thanks so much Kevin! We appreciate the feedback! Better late than never indeed! Welcome to the family :)

Isaac Chelminski: Really happy with my experience at Urban Boxing. The classes are challenging in a great way and always fun. I appreciated that there are folk of all levels in the classes and the instructors are great and push you in a good way. Coach David is awesome, I enjoyed all my classes with him in particular. You can’t go wrong with Urban Boxing Bethesda!

Chris Bolinger: Took class with Tom, he’s a great trainer and a cool a** dude. As someone who is from out of town just dropping in, the class was very welcoming. Great atmosphere, great workout. Highly recommend.
Response: Thanks Chris! If you are ever back in town, do not hesitate to come back and visit us :)

Adan Z: I love going to urban it is such a great experience and all the coaches are incredible. Coach David is the kindest and the nicest coach on the planet! Coach Sula is the coolest and was my first coach and I feel that he is a really cool guy and is just fantastic! Tom is really just plane awesome and cares to make sure you are safe and happy plus those kicks he does are kinda scary but also really cool! I also have to say the all ages class is an incredible work out and the kids class is just fun and really cool that we get to spare and learn more about this sport
Response: We are so happy to hear that! Thanks so much Adan

David Basajjamivule: URBAN boxing is a gym which brings people together as they're working out with their experienced coaches,the managers, director's hospitality is No 1 in the Area so my recomendation anyone intrested in working out to join URBAN BOXING GYM
Response: Appreciate the kind words David!

Ben Montemarano: Urban boxing is professional as professional gets. Tom, the general manager, runs a tight ship and maintains the place in an organized and diligent fashion. The trainers are excellent and do a great job working with a large variety of expertise. The trainers are all unique and friendly and incorporate a new style to each on of their classes- Tom, David, Randolph, Sula, Arturo, and Ricky. They provide great additional insight to each member and will augment your boxing training with helpful advice based on the individual's boxing goals. Great community from the staff to the members. I only have positive things to say about this place!
Response: Thanks Ben! We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. We are a family! Keep up the hard work.

Spencer Grant: This is a great gym for boxers of all levels. The coaches are very friendly and are always willing to help you get the most out of the classes. I especially appreciate that they use both the indoor and outdoor areas for classes so that I can get lots of variety in my workouts
Response: Hi Spencer! Thanks for the awesome review. We're glad you like the variety. Keep up the hard work :)

Theo Johnson: Urban Boxing is not only a challenging workout, but it's also incredibly fun. Coming from a running/cycling background, I often feel as though indoor workouts can be boring, but Urban Boxing is totally different. The instructors give your personalized advice and push you to your limits, and there is more than enough room in the gym to feel like you can move well around the bag. If you want to build up your mental and physical strength while having a great time, start with Urban Boxing!

Brandie Huffman: Awesome gym and environment - as someone new to the sport of boxing I immediately felt comfortable and welcomed here. The instructors are very knowledgeable and I always leave feeling like I’ve learned something and gotten a great workout as well!
Response: Aw! That is great to hear Brandie! At Urban Boxing, we are family and we wouldn't want it any other way for our members.

Hannah Margolis: An absolutely incredible gym and very Covid-safe with mask mandate and outdoor classes available. In my experience, boxing gyms tend to either overemphasize the workout at the cost of quality or overemphasize the motions with a cost in cardio workout, but Urban Boxing is great at both! I always leave feeling well exercised and that I improved my skills too. The staff are all SUPER friendly and helpful and I see a lot of boxing beginners take shape here with lots of support.
Response: Hannah, thanks so much for the encouraging words! Your health and safety is a number 1 priority and it's members like you that keep us going! See you at the gym.

Fort Washington United: what do users think?


Esha: This is my son's first year attending FWU and I couldn't be more excited and blessed for my son to work with such a professional and polite staff. My son's tutor Ms. Nicole has worked tirelessly to make sure he not only stays on task for his grade level goals but that he also exceeds them.🙌🏽 My son also has some amazing coaches that are not only helping to teach him the various skills and techniques associated with MMA but they also teach him discipline, respect, and teamwork.😉 FWU has mastered the recipe for developing successful students and I'm glad my son is one of them.😊

Willie Hicks: Hope this review helps anyone on the fence……..our son is an energetic (kid has a lithium Ion Tesla battery), rambunctious, 100% boy. We love him to pieces but noticed his weight was slowly creeping up, his attention span, and listening skills weren’t where we wanted them to be. We wanted to be proactive and get him into a disciplined environment while also increasing his physical activity. We researched different Martial Arts Academy’s in the Fort Washington area and came across Fort Washington United. We initially called in January 2021 and spoke with Nicole. Within a week we decided to bring our son in for a trial class. The atmosphere and environment was very welcoming. The staff stopped what they were doing to invite us in, take us on a tour, and answer the zillion questions we had. Our son immediately fell in love with the class and was a participant 4-5 times a week in the evenings and on Saturday’s. Fast forward to the Spring and we were prompted with the decision to do the traditional Summer Camp for our son, or enroll him in the Summer Program offered at Fort Washington United. We are so glad we went with FWU. Our son (who turned 6 in May) has progressed immensely in the areas of reading, problem solving, communication, public speaking, water safety (swimming), and leadership. The lessons and principles instilled by the staff has turned our son into a responsible, respectful natural leader who can also throw a hell of a punch and follow with a roundhouse kick, but will also help an old lady across the street……..AWESOME STAFF! AWESOME MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAM! Can’t say enough great things……wish I could give them 10 STARS!

Kisha DeSandies Lester: Earlier this spring, I was looking for a martial arts academy for my five year old son, who was about to start kindergarten. My husband and I wanted to help him get used to being about other kids, since he had been in quarantine for over a year with little to no other time to play with kids his age. We also wanted to instill confidence, respect and self-control and believe that mixed martial arts is a good way to achieve that. I had planned on starting our son in a program in the fall, but as I looked for summer camp programs, I discovered Fort Washington United (FWU). Initially, we wanted to make sure that our son could keep up with the summer program and the evening classes. The staff was great is working with us and our son to assess his ability and we were able to register him for 5-6 weeks of summer camp and the daily martial arts classes. Our son LOVES FWU! He enjoys the structure and working with the coaches and all of the moves that he learns each week. He also is making friends with the other students. Because our son doesn’t attend school nearby, we are not enrolled in the after school program, but we would if we could. Martial arts has given our son confidence and he’s excited to practice his moves at home to anyone who will watch! The summer camp was simply phenomenal! Our son loved the weekly themes, lessons and field trips they went on. The coaches taught the kids important values and taught them how to speak up, be respectful, be responsible, and be a good citizen of the academy. We also loved how the kids worked in teams, by age and presented their projects each week. We were blown away that our 5-year-old was doing PowerPoint presentations and building airplanes and coming up with business plans. There is also a wonderful education track during the summer camp week and after-school program to help keep your child learning at their grade level and beyond (if they are able to). This summer camp also prepared him for the social aspects of kindergarten (eating lunch, playing with others, transitions to different activities, keeping up with your personal items, etc.) I read a review about how this program may not be for younger kids. I would say that it would depend on the child. My son has thrived at FWU. He was one of the youngest kids in the summer program and he did great! He also is inspired and motivated by the older kids, and teens who help with the summer camp. I also think that a lot of our kids need to get a little real-world consequences for their actions when they don’t follow the rules. My son is motivated by that and the point system is an appropriate tool in the academy setting. He doesn’t like losing points because other kids on his team aren’t listening, so he tries to be a leader and example, which we like to see. Overall, I have and will continue to recommend FMU to parents. It’s a safe and nurturing place to have your kids. The staff (Steve, Nicole, Karen, Jason, Charles) are all upbeat and keep you informed on what’s going on. I love how Coaches Jason and Charles are with my son and all the kids. We love that Steve and Nicole are veterans and they have made the decision to pour into the lives of kids. Karen is always helpful, pleasant and supportive every time I see her. My husband and I have been really happy with the decision to enroll our son in this program.

Nat Geary: I've trained at UMAA since September 2018, and since then, my growth has been immense. If you're into challenging workouts, this place has you covered (I am down 40 lbs and keeping the weight off). If you're looking for fulfilling afterschool programs for children, this place is dedicated to both mental and physical success, with tutoring and homework support to go along with martial arts instruction. If you are interested in setting and achieving personal goals, I can personally attest that this gym has helped me reach new heights. I never saw myself winning a grappling tournament, but the coaches, staff, and teammates made that a reality. I cannot recommend this place enough . From ownership down to students, this place is all class. It is more than just a gym, it is a community hub.

Dawn Washington: I am the mom of a special needs child. I was very hesitant to put him in martial arts. I’m glad we did, best decision we ever made! Grappling and striking have boosted my sons self esteem. During summer camp, the group went on museum tours. Each week had a educational theme. They learned coding, finance principles and received points for each book they read over the summer. The points could be used for toys and games. Now that school has started, the focus is on homework. I worried the staff wouldn’t be one on one with my son for his studies so I didn’t bother sending his homework. Imagine my surprise when his teacher sent multiplication homework home and my son already knew it! He’d work with staff using Kahn academy. Great place, great staff!!!

Jazmin Simms: I highly recommend UMAA. My son Mason has attended the after school program for almost 2 years now and I could not be more thankful to the coaches and staff. Since attending, Mason has become a lot more confident, disciplined and an overall better student. The coaches and staff care a lot about the kids and always go the extra mile to help whether it’s with training or homework.

Steven Hoang: The United Martial Arts Academy has classes for the entire family! The classes are great for people of all ages that want to learn top rated self defense and get fit! The kids have a ton of fun during classes! I would recommend this gym to anyone again and again!

Charmicielle Goodine: This establishment does not know how to handle primary children. The punishment for a 5 year old should not be the same for a 12 year old. The point system that the children are on is very subjective. And thinking that a 5 year old should have the same responsibility as a 12 year is ridiculous. It is probably a great establishment for older students but not for younger children.

fairlane urbina: My son goes to UMAA to their after school program. The coach never misses a day to update us that my son got picked from school, in the van and when they’re in school. We celebrated my son’s 11th birthday at UMAA and the theme was Nerf Blast. The party was a “BLAST” all kids had a great time and the staffs did a “BLAST” job! I highly recommend this school. Not only they love what they do, but they care the well being of their students.

Jaquan Butler: United Martial Arts Academy is great environment to build a foundation for martial arts. With a diligent staff and wonderful community it is an excellent environment for learning, guaranteed to instill the calmness and confidence needed to succeed.

TITLE Boxing Club Falls Church: what do users think?


Kailyn Cross: I went to this gym for the first with little to no experience in boxing. My experience from when I first step through the doors has been nothing short of excitement and sweat!! Liv is an instructor but normally at the front desk — she is extremely helpful and hilarious. If you’re trying to pass out and not be able to feel your core definitely take Cory and Renee’s class atleast once a week! You’ll learn to tie your gloves and catch on to the types of punches. This location has military discounts as well in plans!

saed rabu: Basically, every time I call they give me a different price. Today I talked to Cody and he said the membership is $159 a month for a yearly membership, last week I called they said the yearly membership is a one time payment of $195! In January 2022 I called to ask if the 90$ One time payment membership is still available and they said yes?!! Today, I told Cody that last year I got the student membership at this same location for 90$ a year , he said that the gym who offered this will never make money , I explained that I’m talking to the exact gym the offers that and the same exact location , he said that never happened and they never offered a membership at this price and they’re not going to make money this way. I still have the yellow paperwork from last year’s membership of $90 to prove it , I think Cody is new to the gym because he wasn’t there last couple of years. I just think it’s not ethical that you’re changing your prices every week, and you should start listing your prices on the website. Thank you! Update : the manager just called me to try to fix things up, but she just made it worse. She admitted that they had $90$ membership a year for unlimited classes, and it’s no longer available, but she failed to explain why they keep changing their prices. They had 3 price changes so far in 2022!! Stay away from this gym they are in for the money and they are not even good at it!!

Dawit Chane: First of all the GYM is not clean, trainers are mediocre but the worst part is cancelling your membership. They told me I have to email my cancellation and gave me a wrong email address, when I find out the email is not delivered. I called and they processed my cancellation by phone. next they skipped one month and start charging me again. when I called and asked. they told me I need to send another email then charged me again, they charged me almost $300 in one day and refused to refund me and I'm not sure if my membership is even canceled either. I still didn't get notification confirming my cancellation.

Bea Valentine R: Personally love them! They got me fit for my goal of getting ready for the academy and they’re LITERALLY the best. All the trainers and instructors do a wonderful job with keeping up motivation

Kristina Randall: I spent 8 months training at title FC and loved every class I took! The instructors motivate you, help you improve technique, and inspire you to leave it all on the mat. Everyone is so friendly and easy going whether you're at beginners level or have years of experience. Sadly I can't afford it anymore, but the cancellation process was hassle free and seamless. If you need somewhere to push you to love working out I fully suggest TITLE Boxing Falls Church!

Liz Price: In these times you would think that retention of clients would be more important than being right and "following policy". I simply wanted to freeze my account for a couple of months to let an injury heal. Instead I was lectured about policy and was sent the cancellation email for me to send back. I will miss the classes and wish the trainers well. But what I will not miss is dealing with a company that has no focus on service and cultivating loyal clients that will encourage others to join. It is really sad!

Eric T: Either the management is unethical or the staff incompetent, but either way I would stay away. My daughter was a member on my credit card and cancelled her membership. She received an email receipt indicating that she had cancelled. We kept being charged, however. When I sent them a copy of the email they sent, Title Boxing told me that cancellations had to be in writing. Whether my daughter's cancellation was in writing or not, they had sent a receipt saying cancelled (and she was a minor). They still refused to refund the months they charged. I had to put three months of charges in dispute with the credit card company, which of course sided with me. But a huge hassle for me. Terrible business practices.

Dayna Broskey: This gym has reignited my passion for fitness! Since the shutdown I was stuck with home workouts but coming here I absolutely love the boxing classes (best cardio) and I signed up for the semi-private lifting sessions which has taught me A LOT. I’ve learned about nutrition and what works for my body. Most importantly, I now have the correct form for lifting (YouTube videos can only take you so far). Highly recommend this gym. Lots of friendly people who are all just trying to better themselves. The staff here is GREAT too. 10/10

Sydney Potter: I absolutely love Title! I have been a member since 2015 and haven’t looked back since. The classes are intense but a ton of fun. I love the community atmosphere. My favorite part is the semi private training sessions! I’ve fit in clothes that I haven't worn in years! Shoutout to Cody and the team at Title. You all are amazing!

G C: I love the boxing and kickboxing classes. They provide an amazing workout while the trainers work with you on your form. Getting a semi-private lifting session per week is just icing on the cake. I've never done dead lifts before, but with excellent coaching I increased my 5 rep max by 90 lbs!

#11 Overcomers Boxing and Fitness Gym: what do users think?


Michael Scott: Coach Coop and team, Teach more than boxing. They, implore life skills as well. My son Marcus, has been with the program for 2 years. In that time frame, I've seen a undisciplined child to include boxing, growing into a mature young adult. Coach Coop and team have become an extension of the family, and a surrogate father to Marcus. I'm also, very impressed with Marcus boxing skills! I've learned to stay out of the way. I'm witnessing Marcus dedication with the program and Coaches. He truly wants to win the Championship for him and especially the program he represents! In closing, I would highly, recommend this program! There creating stars in the dark!!! I made those comments two years ago, I guess I forgot to post them. 😅 Update, when the world shut down in 2020, Marcus was battling through a shoulder injury and worked vigorously to finally Competing in 2021. With, Coach Coop's, spiritual mentoring and strict training regiment, and Marcus dedication to the process was put on display in the Golden Gloves Tournament.

More Than Human LLC: what do users think?


Semir Abdul: Coach Anthony Rowland has a vision for his clients that shows through his tenacity and extraordinary effort. When I am taking his class I feel like I am fighting my demons and going above my limits. I can’t help but feel like I’ve grown 1% better by the end of his class. The pool of sweat I leave behind leaves me stronger and more confident! Coach Anthony will nudge you to go beyond your comfort zone and you will want to after you see what you are capable of. These are qualities in a trainer that will keep you accountable and help you transform into whoever or whatever you want to be. All while being able to defend yourself. Very humble soul and you can really feel the “human” in “more than human fit”. Thanks Coach!

Aramis Penland: Coach Anthony is amazing. He pushes you, motivates you, and the end result is one of the most intense, sweat filled workouts imaginable. I particularly like his kickboxing cardio classes, in which I not only learn new martial arts techniques but burn off all that dessert I probably shouldn't eat every day. The best workout class I have done in a long time. Highly recommend!

Lance Jackson: I am a long-time student of martial arts that has been training with Coach Anthony for 4 months or more. As a martial arts instructor, Anthony goes the extra mile to invest in his students progress and fitness. A month into my training, Anthony helped me organize a meal and exercise plan, in addition to my martial arts training. Since then, I have lost more than 35 pounds. I am also kicking harder, improving my footwork and ring mobility, as well as my ground game. Anthony does not tolerate complacency; he pushes his students to challenge themselves and grow within the arts.

Andrea Pippins: Anthony is an excellent trainer. He offers the perfect combination of inspiration, instruction, and fun. He will push you to do more than you thought was possible. He is able to work with people at any level of fitness from couch potato to fitness nut. You can tell this truly is his calling and passion. I would strongly recommend him to anyone trying to further strengthen their physical body and psyche. 5 stars.

Vicki Reyes Hernández: For the past 2 months, I've been conditioning and training for a 10k under Anthony's guidance. I've always been an exercise enthusiast but struggled to get the results I wanted. Anthony has helped give me structure to my workouts. He makes sure that I'm aware that every movement and exercise I do have a purpose. Since starting my program, I feel stronger and more disciplined. He's extremely knowledgeable when it comes to fitness and health and eager to share what he knows with his clients. What I value most about his teaching style is that he sees and treats me as a person first rather than just another client. He takes into account my life style, values, goals, and synthesizes that into an effective and enjoyable program. I think his clients- regardless of their health background and experience- all gain something from him and come out feeling empowered.

Satyam Bharadwaj: Coach is amazing! My lifestyle has changed (in a good way) because of Coach Anthony. I am now more focused while training (boxing) and I can not only see results but feel it as well! All thanks to Coach Anthony! He is the best!! I would recommend everyone to join classes with Coach Anthony and see the results on your own....

Fee: Anthony has been my personal trainer for about 3 months now. I have learned so much about my body and how far I can push myself with proper form. Anthony is my first trainer that has incorporated nutrition, boxing, kickboxing, weight training and cardio sessions and I’ve seen some great results! I’m stronger, fitter, and can kick some butt if I have to LOL. I’ve also loss about 10lbs and a lot of inches. Overall, Anthony’s passion for what he does really pushes me and he never lets me quit! I’m grateful for his expertise and motivation.
Response: It was a pleasure having you as my student/friend whilst you were here. I hope where you are now you are continuing your physical fitness and that you are happy! Stay great!

Samer Elchahabi: I have been training with Anthony for over two years. He switched gyms and I ended up following him because he delivers quality instructions in Boxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian jiu jitsu, MMA, and wrestling. It is rare in DC to find someone with all those skills. He is great at pushing you, focusing on the details and technicalities and he will make you sweat during the workout. He's got a great attitude with a dorky side and focuses on self-defense empowerment, particularly toward women.

Ponciano Q. Manalo: I had been in training for over a decade but needed to take a couple of years off. Coach Anthony game highly recommended from a former training partner and his recommendation was spot on. As an experienced martial artist (but somewhat out of practice) Coach Anthony was able to knock the rust off my game and build upon the foundations i already have. I still have a long way to go, but rest assured I am in good hands with him.

Jane Kelly: I have only been fortunate enough to take two (back to back) boxing classes with Anthony so far, but he was an incredible instructor. My skill and general fitness level were far below other class members, but he made sure that every exercise was a challenge I could overcome. I never felt defeated because an exercise was simply too difficult to complete properly, and I never felt discouraged or talked down to when I was given an alternative. I came in nervous, knowing nothing about boxing, and in two hours Anthony led me to breakthrough after breakthrough- I’m certainly no expert now, but i’m distinctly better than when I started. I can’t speak to his individual training, but the class environment was wonderful. Everyone knew each other and there was a lot of teasing, but everyone was really nice too. Students who were more experienced than me helped correct my movements and gave me advice. I felt really welcomed, and I hope to go back before I leave town!
Response: Thank you so much! We hope you come back before you leave!

BETA Academy: what do users think?


Ma D: Awesome place for beginners and advanced BJJ lovers. Very friendly people. Good technics. I highly recommended this place who visiting Washington DC also who decided to start practising Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Guys when you browsing different clubs with thoughts about what to choose please go there and you will meet really cool professional people. Good luck everyone. Oss.

Jack Cantlay: The instruction is top notch. Your instructors are amazing and follow a coherent system of training so that each week is a new thing. The gym culture is very friendly and welcoming but I still feel like I can get competitive live rolls. It really matters that your instructors are so friendly. That goes a long way. But they still push me! I love the balance.
Response: Thank you so much Jack, we appreciate that! We pride ourselves on our welcoming community and believe that a strong community fosters growth in our students.

Thuhuong Dao: - Coach to child ratio was excellent. - Coaches did a great job working the room and - working with each child/group. - Introduction/greet for my children’s first class was great and energetic. - Disciplining the students during class was thorough and appreciated. - Dismissal of students was organized (liked how the coach only let the kids go when he say the parents).
Response: HI there! Thank you so much for the review! We appreciate your feedback and we're so happy that you experienced the professionalism of our Kids' coaches!

Tara Trinity: Coach Carlos, coach D, everyone is amazing. We love Beta!!!! My son has come into an environment that supports him and is compassionate as well as disciplined. The diversity is something I was personally looking for, and that’s something that is even more a bonus.

Walter Bayer: Great place for all-levels of Muay Thai and jiu-jitsu enthusiasts. Very beginner-friendly with knowledgeable coaches who will patiently walk you through everything you need to know. After training here for a few sessions, you'll experience the great sense of community they foster. I loved that there was also a weight room to supplement training with strength & conditioning.

Tim .G: We were in DC on vacation and they welcomed us in for open mat, even stayed later to roll. Coach Gabriel was awesome. Awesome facility! Super friendly community! I definitely recommend!

Tyrone Calvin: I’m no strange to BETA academy and every time I go, I leave better than I arrived. Everyone is very friendly and professional. The Brazilian Ju Jitsu class is informative and state of the art in self defense.

CJ Francis: I love the welcoming culture, the high level and clarity of instruction, the daily availability of no gi classes as well as gi. Also the ample amount of time given for both drilling and sparring.

Saron Dessalegn: Friendly Coaches are willing to help and give good instructions!! Definitely recommend for a great education in Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu.
Response: Thank you so much Saron!

Amy Putens: In honesty we could not be more thrilled with our experience with BETA! We have been apart of the BETA community for approximately 2yrs. We started out just being an attendee of their summer program. After summer was over we would drive by often and my daughter would ask- "When do we get to go back to beta?" I knew then that this was where we needed to be. When you have a daughter (who is a girlie girlie) wanting to be apart of something so much bigger than Ballet or gymnastics I was sold. We then signed up for the after school program and we haven't turned back since. The excitement both my children have for their amazing staff and program is the reward for me at the end of the day. Having being I can trust in to guild my children down the right path and for my kids to respect them is 100% why we choose BETA!!!!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU BETA! Thank you for all that you give!!!!!!
Response: Hi Amy, thank you so much for sharing your story with us! It makes us proud to have kids as enthusiastic and motivated as yours in our Kids Program!

Sugar Ray Leonard Boxing Center: what do users think?


LaRonda Gray: So far I am not impressed. Today was to be my son's first day. We were told to arrive at 2p and ask for his coach. We did so, and were told to come back after 3p because the coach was the only one there and not able to leave the front desk. Getting solid information is a struggle. There is too much back and forth. So far this gym is lacking the professionalism that I expect. UPDATE: I pulled my son out of this place. The lack of respect for parents is horrible.... especially as a female.

Kameelah: They take the time to encourage the best in my children. I have children of both sexes and they push them both in their own special way. The coaches are amazing. The staff are friendly and helpful. I love it! Thinking of joing myself

t Whittington: As a boy I talked about sugar ray non stop. I have so much respect for this champion. When in Hagerstown prison I was introduced to a friend of Sugar Ray. Derrik Holmes. He was the splitting image of champion Leonard. I often think of Holmes and the good talks. This brings me to this awesome gym Sugar Ray Boxing Center. Its the best in the world because the heart of sugar ray. Great History of boxing is the the Boxing Center. The real deal.

Timmey Williams: The staff are very welcoming & eager to help with any and all entering information needed far as new members signing * Looking forward to gaining direct guidelines for Coaches program under USA certification

rodrigo sauno: I love the place I don’t like the new way they change online

J B: Its fairly cheap $50 for 3 months and you can get your own coach for a little extra.

Carolyn Fairfax: Soo Good I am joining with my grandson excellence 🙌👏😍

Alex Maltez: Me and my sons have been boxing here for years and we all love this place. Great coaches and staff!

Kayode Abrams: Reasonably priced at 50 a quarter. Most spacious boxing gym in the area.

Nonya Beeswax: Good Prices Good People love to see all the young girls in there learning technique for self defense

Capital MMA & Elite Fitness | Takoma Park, MD: what do users think?


Tyler Haislip: I've been training with Capital MMA & Elite Fitness in Takoma Park for the past three years, and I could not be happier with my decision to join this gym. Even with no martial arts background, I immediately felt welcomed by both the coaches and other students. Everybody at Capital constantly pushes each other to become better, all while maintaining a safe, fun, and positive environment. I've personally become more motivated, improved my conditioning, and gained a bunch of great friends and training partners in the process.

Lamonte Tyler (Ωψϕ): Capital MMA & Elite Fitness located in Takoma Park has been great to me since I moved to the area in 2008. When I left NC and Charlottesville, VA, I was looking for that family friendly environment to train and teach. I was welcomed like as if I started with Capital MMA & Elite Fitness. Not only do I teach, but I've learn from such great students. Once potential students comes to the school, all of the students make them feel welcome. We believe in, No Martial Artist Left Behind.

Wil Dorsett: Everything I have come to expect from Capital MMA and the Royce Gracie network! Stopped in to train while here on business. Staff and students were very welcoming and accomadating! If you're in the Takoma Park area, this is where you should train!!
Response: Thanks, professor!

Efren Diaz: An excellent school that has two Royce Gracie black belt instructors on staff. No other school in the area can say that. Very friendly place to train, the instructors and students are top notch. I love that the advanced students are always willing to share their knowledge with other students. BJJ, Judo, and Thai Boxing are offered, along with kettle bells and other conditioning activities. Kids program as well. I felt welcomed from the moment I set for in the school and felt like I have always been part of the school family. Awesome atmosphere and even better martial arts. It doesn't get any better than Gracie Jiu-Jitsu!

Dimitry Vesensky: I started training at Capital MMA & Elite Fitness in Takoma Park fairly late in life, in my 40 and was little worried about being injured and all but I can say that I could not find a better, safer place to train with more competent, motivated, attentive and patient teachers and comrades in arms. In few years I trained i got in probably best shape I have been. The group of people that formed in these years in the academy is fantastic, these are one of the best training partners I had...It is great to see guys grow immensely in skill and conditioning in these few years. All in all excellent place to train in authentic, battle tested system. The only warning I can give is that it gets addictive!

Hernan Guadalupe: I have been training at Capital MMA & Elite Fitness in Takoma Park for close to 4 years. Above the amazing Jiu Jitsu program they offer is the even more amazing people that belong to Capital. My growth as a Jiu Jitsu practitioner is due more to the overwhelming concern and attention giving by the instructors and other teammates than anything else. There is no ego nor individualism that exists in the academy which facilitates and accelerates your growth in the sport. I have awesome training partners and have built great friendships along the way and that, to me, is the essence of the academy. The great part is that this also extends to their other locations in Alexandria, Loudon, and Fairfax as I have had the chance to train at all. So if you want to learn quality Royce Gracie Jiu Jitsu in an ego-free environment and train hard while building awesome relationships, this is the place for you.

A Coleman: Been with Capital MMA Takoma for some time now and although my attendance has been lackluster, when i do make it, I am always welcomed by a group of strong, motivated, and encouraging students and teachers/coaches who motivate me to push myself to the limit to improve (something I haven't received from other gyms) all while HAVING FUN. Definitely not just another MMA business chain only focused on raking in my money, these guys actually care, listen, observe and give feedback, all in effort to help one another improve. I would recommend this gym to anyone looking to start or improve their game.

Dan Metcalf: I began training here in January of 2011. I had several years of of martial arts, but the vibe at Capital was something I hadn't experienced before; minimal hierarchy, no mysticism, a genuine and universal curiosity, and the "place for every pace" feel all set this club apart for me. I now train 3-4x/week and feel that I get a lot of nourishment here: conditioning and training, cognitive stimulation from the game of jiu-jitsu, and a pleasant social environment. As a nearly lifelong Takoma Park resident, I was delighted to see the school grow into its own and inhabit a new space this Spring. There's never been a better time to check this place out, and see what their Gracie Jiu-Jitsu or Muay Thai programs have to offer you.

Amy Boccardi: My 7 year old son has been training at Capital MMA/Takoma for the past year. Unlike other martial arts schools that seem impersonal and focused on making money, the folks at Capital are truly committed to building relationships with families and helping kids to grow as both young people and athletes. Kids classes are a nice size of 6-10 kids with 2-3 coaches. While active, but not really a "sports" kid, training jiu jitsu provides my son with a good balance of both physical activity and thinking for strategy.

Joe McMahon: I have been training at Capital Takoma for over three years now and I have loved every minute of it. What started as just a way to get in shape while learning Gracie self-defense and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I then added on Muay Thai on top of that to get in even better shape. The thing that has always struck me is not only is the instruction top notch but also friendly and inclusive. On top of this Jay Ferrari and company strive to make a family friendly environment where even the most die hard competitors can excel.

UFC GYM Arlington: what do users think?


Jade David: Before the gym closed, I loved going to Matt’s boxing & conditioning classes. He made sure we got our money’s worth. He was extremely personable and played all types of music. His passion comes across when he teaches.

Brandon Clear: This gym feels like family from the start! Noel and Kevin do a fantastic job with boxing/conditioning classes and show a ton of patience regardless of your boxing experience. Ive been going here consistently since January 2019 and have become even more involved.

Rachael Johnson: I have been going to this gym and the Alexandria one for over three years and love them. The workouts for the group classes are so intense and awesome. Kick my butt every time. The technical classes are awesome for actually learning technique and Coach Terrance is great at working with you whether you are a first timer or a pro. This place definitely helped me in get into the best shape of my life.

Eileen Donovan: I thought this would be a good place to go because it's only 2 stops from where I work and I had never tried a boxing class before, but it was fairly disappointing. The gym itself is kind of grungy/grimey looking. The membership is expensive for a workout that isn't that exciting. You're punching a bag and hoping around a gym for an hour. The music wasn't great. It was just a lot of pounding beats and loud noises that gave me a headache. Would not recommend. MADabolic or OrangeTheory across the street were more worth my money.

Nancy Najarian: Disappointing. This gym persisted in trying to receive auto payment when the member had verbally and in writing terminated membership. The manager said they did not "see" the email sent to them stating membership had been terminated and auto debit should not be attempted. It was not until I called that after repeated auto calls on our phone, that the manager "searched" for our email. The email had been sent over a month ago, and yet the gym persisted in trying to collect membership fees. Why is that? We followed the policy. The gym's persistent automatic efforts to collect membership resulted in overdraft fees amassing on a bank account that had in fact been closed. Now we have incurred bank fees and the gym is not taking responsibility for it. I would be very cautious in believing this gym is financially responsible, and even reads the termination emails. A very frustrating and disappointing experience.

Sterling Browne: If you're new to this go into it expecting to go 1 - 2 times a week. These trainers will work you, it's great. I took 4 1hr classes and to this day my cardio has never been better. I prefer that you buy your own stuff and find some tutorials on YouTube so you have an idea of what you're in for. Actual fighters train here and you'll get a lot of encouragement and knowledge from these people. Oh, do not be afraid to breath! Go ham on that breathing.

B Ford: This is the review that I have on Yelp as well: I give this gym 4 stars if you're looking for good boxing classes and only 1 star if you have to cancel your membership. I received a trial membership for one month. $116 + the hand wraps was a bit expensive, but I liked that they were on the same metro line as my job so it wasn't too hard to get there. The classes were at decent times and were very good. I took a couple of boxing classes and a kickboxing class. Buy and bring your own gloves. The ones that you borrow have been used by so many people and have a horrible odor. I decided not to continue with the membership because $65-$85 a month would have been too expensive for my budget. Reed told me that in order to not be charged, I would have to cancel before 9/22. I was out of town at the time, but made sure that I called on 9/18. On 9/22, I was charged $150!!!! I spoke to Meche who, WITH Reed, made the necessary adjustments in the system to issue a credit. I firmly believe that they only disconnect you in one system and that that adjustment isn't made or sent to the corporate office. Imagine my surprise when on 10/22 I was charged ANOTHER $150 for a membership that was supposedly canceled!!!! I spoke to Meche AGAIN who told me that Reed would handle the credit on Sunday 10/27. I call Reed on Sunday and he's unwilling to do so until he had spoken to Meche on Monday because I could be telling him anything. I am totally unhappy with how this has been handled, charging me month after month for a membership I canceled via THEIR instructions. After I am issued a credit, I will be forced to cancel my credit card which will be very inconvenient.

Ann Maupin Foley: The boxing conditioning classes at this gym are so much fun and a fantastic workout. Kevin has awesome energy and killer playlists. Can’t wait to get back here!

Alexander Ramirez: The workouts and trainers are great. UFC billing however is the WORST! If you do decide to join them, don’t use your credit card!

Jay Conklin: Great boxing gym with knowledgeable trainers who push me every time. If you commit to the gym, the staff shows commitment to you.

Becca Andersen: I had no prior experience with self defense or any martial art and my boyfriend bought me the Women and Femme self defense intensive course for this weekend. It was AMAZING, so inclusive of all experiences and fitness levels, talked about real world applications and scenarios and gave us a safe space to practice those scenarios and key moves to protect us. There were no gimmicks, just each person realizing their own strength and ability and personal strategy. The instructors were kind, inclusive, supportive, and I will definitely be returning for more classes. Thank you!!! [people, buy course passes for your partner, for yourself, for your family... they'll love it!!]

Katherine Daw: I went to self defense for women and femmes with Colleen! Amazing course! Colleen has designed the curriculum with both practicality and thoughtfulness in mind. She made sure all of us felt safe, cared for, and heard throughout the experience, even as we were tackling difficult topics and potentially triggering exercises and drills. She and the folks helping out were very knowledgeable and gave great pointers and individual attention to everyone in the class. I’ve come out of the weekend very sore, but feeling empowered and much more confident in my ability to defend myself in an emergency. This class has also inspired me to continue training in martial arts so that I continue to hone my self defense skills. Truly can’t recommend this highly enough.

Roger Routh: Went to N-Flux while I was in DC visiting my daughter. She's been going for over a year and speaks highly of it. I can see why. It was a GREAT workout. Tremendous camaraderie between the attendees and between the attendees and Chris the owner. I highly recommend it.

Kay Tang: Colleen and her team of instruction assistants are amazing. They truly create a great space for females to voice, share, and learn the everyday challenge to their safety. I learned a lot!

Leah Wilson-Lyons: I went to self defense for femmes with Colleen and had the BEST time. A welcoming gym environment for women that you won’t find at other places. I feel strong and empowered and lucky to have taken the self defense course. Every woman in DC should take this course!! It is so worth every penny. Colleen goes above and beyond to help you outside of class and to get to know you personally. The environment is very supportive and helped with my anxiety going in. Great community at that gym. I will be back!

Sean Leonard: I was a complete beginner to martial arts classes, and N-Flux was a fantastic, welcoming environment. There was a broad range of skill levels – from completely new people to seasoned professionals. Would highly recommend for someone looking for a place with a good sense of community, wide range of classes, or even a good open gym environment.

Jaimie Nawaday: I traveled from Brooklyn to DC for the women’s self-defense intensive with Colleen Daly because I heard such great things about Colleen and couldn’t find anything comparable even in NYC. It was absolutely the best thing I’ve done for myself in years. The training, the environment, the instruction, the whole atmosphere was everything I was looking for. It was both incredibly tough and incredibly supportive. I was sore from head to toe, my knuckles were wrecked, and I had the time of my life. Will recommend to everyone I know.

Alexis Barton: I highly recommend the Guerrera workshop and Colleen that I took with N-Flux. I took the workshop with my 12 year old daughter and we both had an incredible experience - both with Colleen and the other instructors and with the group of women in the workshop with us. We were a mix of women of different ages, sizes, life-experience, and abilities but we all felt included and comfortable - which for practicing something like this is so important. Colleen made every technique and strategy accessible and straightforward but we still learned so much. Thank you!

Caroline Routh: The happiest I've been in a long time! Working out here provides me with an amazing community of peers who aim to uplift and support each other, and the staff instruction is unmatched anywhere in the city. As a beginner I have never felt overwhelmed or intimidated. I cannot recommend N-Flux highly enough!

Andrea Fort: I took the Guerrera self-defense class out of pure curiosity and I LOVED IT! This was just the type of physical / mental challenge I was looking for and I mean that it wasn't difficult, just something that felt really great to achieve! Colleen, the lead instructor, is a powerhouse and her energy is contagious! I also appreciated the wholesome guidance from all 3 other instructors, ever watchful about our technique and form... encouraging us along the way. It was also amazing to bond with other women and femmes over such a particular and vulnerable practice. I'm so glad to have met all of them, THIS IS a safe space! Thank you Colleen, Sarah, Tahira, Riley, you all make such a great and diverse team! I highly recommend this experience to ANYONE. Go for it!

Level Up Boxing & Fitness: what do users think?


Marc Adona: The service at Level up boxing is extremely terrible. I called to have my son's account closed due to school. The gentlemen that answered the phone told me that I could pause the account instead of closing it and the manager would reach out to me to see if I was still interested in a couple months. That's not what happened afterwards. Not only did I get charged for the month, they charged me twice. Which I had to call several times in order for them to fix the problem. After that I was billed every month. Remind you, my account was supposed to be in pause status, yet I was billed for service. Every month I had to call to have them reverse the charge. It's completely ridiculous. I was billed June 6th and once again, I called to have them reverse my charge. A woman picked up the phone and told me it would be fixed. I called today, the woman I spoke to earlier in the week answered the phone and placed me on hold, and never came back. I called them back and the phone went immediately to voicemail. They refuse to deal with the situation. This is the worst customer service I've ever experienced. Every employee gives you a different answer regarding how things operate. No one has a concept of what they're doing and professionalism is nowhere to be found. You should know your customers accounts and what status they're in. I shouldn't have to call every month to have you fix a charge. If you're billing me every month when exactly is my account in pause? Who is doing the billing? Apparently they don't know what they're doing and shouldn't be handling it. It takes no time to issue a refund. It is not that complicated to do. I shouldn't have to call you several times in order for this transaction to be fixed. I've never been more frustrated with a company than I am with Level up boxing. But I guess this is what happens when you have a boxer running a business that requires professionalism and logic. Don't waste your time going to this gym. The people operating this business are unprofessional. You can find a better gym that has better customer service and knows how to communicate with their clientele.
Response: Marc, I’m sorry about your experience. As per membership agreement, a Cancellation Form must be completed and submitted in person. Unfortunately, hold requests and cancellations can not be made over the phone just like any other gym membership. Please stop by the front desk during business hours to complete the Cancellation Form as per membership agreement. Every member is treated with professionalism and I apologize for not personally reading the contract agreement page to you that you signed to clearly explain the terms of the gym membership.

Winston Foster: Very fun and people friendly, they actually care. Tones of different kinds of people with different fitness levels and even stuff for kids. The classes are definitely worth the $ you pay and the coaches will help motivate you to help reach your goals. Fun time.

Gary Connell: I love coming every Tuesday and Thursday to not only blow off some steam but just to interact with everybody which is a very friendly environment
Response: Thank you, Gary!!!

Bryan Hatcher: The training itself was fun and very thorough but the guy they have working the front desk is very unprofessional. I would not recommend or reuse their services
Response: Hi Bryan, I am sorry you had a negative experience. We hope that you visit us again so we can do better and show some of the changes we have made to improve the front desk customer experience.

Rashim Gray: ...I had the pleasure of attending their Spar Wars...what an awesome time had in a fun and safe atmosphere...
Response: Thank you for coming, Rashim!

Yasemin Jamison: What's been more important to me in my many years of doing Martial Arts has always been the people more so then the facility. The people I train with and the people who instruct me. At Level Up Boxing and Fitness I finally found both. Not only do I get the great facility, but I get an awesome family. Coach Jason, the Staff and my fellow students are great motivators as well as instructors. I just can't say enough about what a great place Level Up is to come and learn all you can about Boxing, Kickboxing and just Fitness in general. Oh and by the way...... Coach Jason was the reason my Son, after only training with Coach Jason a short time, won 2nd place in the Nationals (World Kickboxing Association of USA)!

Yemi: One of the best gyms in the DMV period. Great coaching and great facility. You will improve if you put in the work
Response: Thank you!

Erin Jimenez: Before I started training in the Spring of 2010, I would never have considered myself an athlete. I never imagined that I, a scientist, would step into the ring and compete. Towards the end of the summer of 2011, Coach Jason Farrell, then at Crazy 88, asked if I wanted to train a little harder and compete in sparring exhibitions. At the time I was very insecure with my striking abilities even after training for over a year, but Coach Jason believed I was ring ready and that the experience would help me grow. He was right! Its 2018 now and for the last 8 years we've been competing up and down the east coast and all over the world. We've fought nationally: Virginia, New Jersey, New York, and Florida. Training at Level up has even taken me to fight in Mexico, Spain, Italy, and even Belarus! Up next is Canada. As coach Jason puts it, “We just keep chipping away everyday...Its a never ending experiment.” In the last 8 years, Coach Jason has dedicated thousands of hours of instruction, coaching, and mentoring. What I like most about working with him is that he will work even more than I train to get me ready for a competition. If I’m at the gym training, he is also there coaching and helping me get better. Outside the gym, Jason is always watching tape and will send me footage fights to study. I have been a spectator and participant at numerous boxing and kickboxing events and it’s a fact that Coach Jason’s students have the best striking skills. My goals right now are to continue to develop my striking skills and become professional athlete while working my scientist job full time. I’m so confident that I will keep on making more goals and achieving them under Coach Jason Farrell at Level Up.

Eriberto Osorio: I found level up in August of 2014 because I wanted to box and lose weight. I looked at many options nearby, walked into level up first since it was relatively close and decided this was the place I wanted to be. I love this place it's a great environment to learn and work out in. I have been coming to this gym for 3 years and will continue to do so until I no longer can. Thank you Coach Jason for giving me that first boxing class those years ago; it was a stepping stone into a healthier lifestyle.

Alex Milla: I started coming here just about a year ago. Other gyms really made me feel unwelcomed as a newbie. I was pretty self-conscious about slowing down classes and just felt generally unwanted at these gyms... like I was a burden. I take my physical fitness very seriously, so why would I waste my time at these places if they weren't going to show me any form of respect? So far, I have experienced nothing but patience from the other fighters and coaches alike. When I couldn't hold the pads right, the coaches showed me how. When I couldn't throw a punch right, the pad holder didn't get frustrated, they corrected me. Even when I felt like I just wasn't picking up Boxing, the coaches and managers helped to motivate me and keep me engaged. In just under a year, I've improved drastically in my BJJ and Boxing. It's a very dedicated but friendly atmosphere. You really do feel like your membership means something. This is a real fighter's gym, not whatever other gyms pass off as boxing (but is really Zumba with gloves). I'm still far from where I want to be, but I feel like I'm slowly but surely improving every time I walk out.

Urban Boxing Arlington: what do users think?


F Zervou: What a gem of a place. Professionally run and maintained, excellent coaches and yet they retain a personalized touch and connect with each student. My teenage son is taking boxing lessons and they quickly focused on understanding him and developing trust, then gave him a perfect mixture of training for his physical and mental conditioning. They focus as much on the mind as the body. I’m a supremely picky dad, and I’m sold on these guys. Good people.
Response: Love it!! Thanks so much

Christopher Eirkson: Great gym, will give you a hard workout every class. Instructors are fantastic and motivating. Well worth the money. If I hadn't moved away from the area I would still be practicing here!
Response: Hi Christopher, your words are truly appreciated! Thank you

LFK: I have been a member since January 2018. It has been such an amazing experience and I have learned so much. All the coaches and the front desk staff have been amazing! They have class for everyone, from level 1 at the bag to sparring. Don’t miss the chance to workout while learning a new skill! Priceless!
Response: Welcome to the family, we are honored to have you :) Thanks for the review!

Rico Chandra: Moved to DC from Europe and looked for a boxing gym. After a quick phone call with Dan I went for a class the same day. Signing up at Urban Boxing turned out to be a great decision, life saver really: A whole lot of classes, run by super instructors, and an app lets you sign up first come first served. Do it!
Response: Hi Rico, you are missed! We look forward to having you back in September

Phuoc Nguyen: Great experience. I went with my teenage daughter as first timers to a kickboxing class. All of the coaches made time to say hello and welcome us. The class was challenging and fun.
Response: Hi Phuoc, we are delighted to hear that!

Your DMV Team Realty: A few of our agents are members of this gym and we can't say enough about how great the training and staff is! Truly a great workout for all levels! We love how the trainers push us to be the best and get the most out of our workouts but not overly aggressive! Highly recommend this gym to anyone in the area looking for a great environment to get a workout in
Response: Aw! Thanks so much! We truly appreciate the words :)

Cassidy Charles: I absolutely love the team at Urban Boxing. From day one, Dan made me feel comfortable with being in a serious gym for the first time. My first class was really hard but my instructor, Antoine, really pushed me and helped me through it. Everyone in the class was very supportive and overall cool to workout with. Antoine's classes were some of my favorite. I also took kickboxing with Jeff and Mike which I highly recommend if you want to do more leg work and do some more laughing through the pain.
Response: Thanks Cassidy, that is what we strive for!

Sophie Kushen: All around fantastic studio, wish I could give them 10 stars. The environment is super welcoming, not intimidating, and like everyone says, it's a second home. Truly going to be some of the people I miss most when I move! Dan, Josh, and the rest of the front staff are always totally lovely and accommodating and make every single person who comes in feel welcome and pumped up. We live for the fist bumps. The coaches are all phenomenal; they're always around to help correct technique or encourage you to work just a little bit harder, but they're also just all-around lovely humans who truly care about their students. I've had a serious ankle injury and Mike and Antoine have been angels helping me modify workouts so I can still come to classes safely while still pushing me to be better and not get lazy. The facilities are spotless and the staff is great about disinfecting after each class and making sure everything is covid safe. Could not recommend highly enough!

Matthew Fuller: Best gym in the area. If you're looking to learn something new, build on what you know, or just get in killer shape, this is the place to do it. Tons of classes for any schedule. Antoine, Tom, and the rest of the coaches are highly committed, accessible, and hold you accountable which you don't get most places. Great community too. If you're looking for a boxing gym, Urban Boxing Arlington is the spot.
Response: Hi Matthew, thanks for the kind words! Consider us your second home. We just added some level 2s to the schedule. Please check them out and let us know what you think!

Kristin Lee: I love this gym! Very clean and welcoming with a team of great coaches (Mike, Filip, Nathan and Antoine, to name a few). I would recommend to anyone, no matter their level of boxing experience.
Response: Thanks Kristin! We appreciate the love. Did you know for each friend you refer who joins, you get a free month! Bring anyone in you think will love Urban as much as you do :) Thanks again
