The Workout: Boxing
  • What is a Rumble Boxing Class like?
    In a word, it’s electrifying. Ten Rounds. Two Fists. Zero Experience Necessary. We start with a group warm up and a shadow boxing session.
    Then you’ll spend half of the 45 minute class pounding our special tear-drop style, water-filled bags and half of the class at your station doing strength and body-weight conditioning exercises. The music is jamming, the lights are sexy, and the vibe is 100% supportive.
  • I've never boxed before, will I be able to keep up?
    Absolutely. Our workouts are beginner friendly and designed to allow everyone to Rumble at their own pace.
    Five minutes before class, we’ll call First Timers into the studio for our “pre-class,” where we go over the six punches.
  • What if I can't do everything in class? I haven't worked out in a while.
    Don’t sweat it. If you can move, you can Rumble.
    Instructors offer modifications for many of the exercises we do in class, so you’ll have options.
  • Is there a beginner class?
    No, but all of our classes are suitable for beginners.
    We also offer private coaching if you’d like to brush up with some one-on-one technique before you step into a class setting, but it’s certainly not a pre-req for taking class.
  • Do I need to own my own gloves?
    Nope. Gloves are available to rent ($3) or for purchase at our front desk, but if you have a favorite pair that you’d like to bring, we totally understand.
  • How old do you have to be to take a class?
    13.
    We offer special event classes that are suitable for all age groups. Birthday parties, Bat Mitzvahs, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and book clubs are all welcomed.
  • Do you offer corporate events or private classes for groups?
    Yes, we offer bag blocks, class exclusives, and venue exclusives.
    All event info can be found here. Any additional questions can be directed to events@rumble-boxing.com.
The Workout: Training
  • What is a Rumble Training Class like?
    It’s the push you love and the team energy to take you there. This is training for all: Workout newbies, people who claim to like running, and people who actually like running lace up next to each other for ten electric rounds of a full-body, dynamic, interval-based workout that keeps everyone on their toes.
    Start off as a group with a high-powered, runners-focused, functional warm up. Then split half the 45-minute class between tearing it up with intervals, resistance, and speed on our high-tech treadmills and powering up at your station with strength and body-weight conditioning exercises. Low lights, heart-pumping beats, and the pursuit of fun all come together to give you that signature Rumble experience you know and love.
  • I don’t run much, will I be able to keep up?
    Absolutely. Our workouts are beginner friendly and designed so everyone can Rumble at their own pace.
    Five minutes before class, we’ll call First Timers into the studio for our “pre-class,” where we go over our intervals, custom combos and how to move through them on the treadmill like a champ.
  • What if I can't do everything in class? I haven't worked out in a while.
    Don’t sweat it. If you can move, you can Rumble.
    Instructors offer a variety of levels and modifications for many of the exercises we do in class, so no matter your experience, you can take it to your max.
  • Is there a beginner class?
    Nope, because all of our classes are suitable for beginners!
    Our custom joysticks on each treadmill keeps you in control of your level so you’re set up for success every time you step on the tread. If you’d like to brush up with some one-on-one technique before you take a class, be sure to check out our private coaching, but it’s certainly not a pre-req for your first class.
  • Do I need special gear?
    Not at all. Just make sure it’s comfortable to move in whatever you’ve got on and your kicks can handle any level of speed or resistance thrown at you.
  • How old do you have to be to take a class?
    13.
    We offer special event classes that are suitable for all age groups. Birthday parties, Bat Mitzvahs, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and book clubs are all up our alley.
  • Do you offer corporate events or private classes for groups?
    Yes. We offer tread blocks, class exclusives, and venue exclusives.
    All event info can be found here. Any additional questions can be directed to events@rumble-boxing.com.

Scheduling Class
  • Do I need to create an account?
    Yes. It’s very simple and should take you less than 1 minute.
  • Do I have to buy a package or a membership?
    No. You can buy a single class if you’re terrified of commitment.
    We offer a first time rate, where you purchase one class and the second one is on us.
  • Do you offer monthly memberships?
    There are no membership fees at Rumble.
    We currently offer 5, 10, 20 and 30 class series. Our Rumble Platinum series includes priority waitlist and advance booking. We also offer private one-on-one training and can accomodate special events.

    Whichever single class or package option you purchase can be used at any Rumble Boxing or Rumble Training class of your choice.
  • When do classes become available to book online?
    2 full weeks of classes become available for booking every Monday at 7 AM.
  • How does the waitlist work?
    We automatically enroll waitlisted clients into class up to 12 hours prior to the class start time. After the 12-hour mark, we will call you if we are able to secure you a spot in class. We can only hold the spot if we're able to reach you; otherwise, we will release it to the next client on the waitlist. That said, we always encourage waitlisted clients to come to the studio, as we are often able to get clients in on a walk-in basis.
Before Class
  • When should I arrive?
    We recommend arriving at the studio 15 minutes before class for check-in.
  • What do I do when I get there?
    Say what’s up to whoever is at the front desk and mention that it is your first time. They’ll get you taken care of.
  • What if I’m running late?
    To ensure that your spot is not released to the waitlist, please arrive at Rumble at least five minutes prior to the start of your class.
    To be respectful of others, there will be no entry five minutes after the class has started.
  • Something came up. Can I cancel?
    If you need to cancel class, please do so by 5PM the night before your class. You can cancel your class by clicking on the “My Classes” tab. Emergencies happen and things come up. If you would like to attempt a same day switch, which is permitted without losing a credit (subject to availability), please email us at nyc@rumble-boxing.com (NYC), la@rumble-boxing.com (LA), sf@rumble-boxing.com (SF), philly@rumble-boxing.com (PA) or dc@rumble-boxing.com (DC). If you do not show for your reservation, or if you attempt to cancel online after 5PM the night before your class, you will be charged for that reservation.
During Class
  • What should I wear?
    Whatever is comfy and makes you feel fly.
  • What shoes should I wear?
    Most clients wear traditional cross-training shoes. You can break out your running shoes for training and bank some bonus points if you have boxing shoes, but neither are necessary for either class.
After Class
  • Do you have showers?
    We do. There are multiple showers in both the men’s and women’s locker rooms.
    Towels, vanities, hair dryers, and bath and body products are also provided.
Boxing Questions
  • What are the benefits of boxing?
    The best endorphin high of your life — but if we're talking physical benefits:
    Fat Burning
    Increased Metabolism
    Increased Muscle Tone
    Increased Cardiovascular Fitness
    Improved Muscular Endurance
    Improved Core Stability
    Improved Strength and Power
    Improved Hand-Eye Coordination
    Stress Relief
  • Will boxing make me too muscular?
    No. Boxing will build lean muscle mass and tone your entire body.
    The combination of cardio and strength training will allow you to burn calories without bulking up. With an intense focus on improving core strength, you'll be ready to show off that six-pack sooner than you thought.
  • Is boxing good for you?
    A Rumble class is HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), strength training, (METCON) metabolic conditioning, and cardio all in one - making it an incredible total body workout.
    You'll see improved balance and coordination, increased metabolism, and burn up to 13 calories per minute. Our Aqua training bags reduce the impact on your joints, and the teardrop shape increases trainer visibility so that you'll never feel lost during class. Our favorite part? The endorphins released during exercise mean that there's a good chance that you'll walk out feeling happier too.
  • Will I lose weight boxing?
    Boxing has proven to be one of the most effective forms of exercise for losing weight.
    The combination of burning calories and gaining muscle directly results in weight loss.
  • Why should I choose boxing?
    Since no two classes are the same - we keep your body guessing, making it nearly impossible to hit a weight loss plateau, and even less likely for you to get bored.
    The back and forth between aerobic and anaerobic exercise means you're training on an entirely new level. Even better, the boost in your metabolism ensures you'll be burning calories throughout class, and long after you leave.
  • Can I take class if I’m pregnant?
    We’ve had clients train right up to D-Day, but that is a question better suited for you and your doctor.
  • What are wraps, do I really need them?
    Yes. We require wraps on the training floor. Wraps help protect your hands and wrists while punching the bag.
    We have slip-on wraps available to purchase for $5.
  • Why do you offer quick wraps instead of traditional hand wraps?
    In order to maximize your comfort and minimize your setup time, we offer quick wraps for $5 which only take seconds to slip on and secure to your wrist. They'll keep your knuckles pretty even if your punches are brutal. Yours to keep and machine washable, be sure to bring ‘em back for class #2.
    If you’d prefer to use traditional hand wraps, that’s cool too. Here’s a video of how to wrap up like the pros.

    Please note that due to time constraints, we don't wrap hands with traditional wraps on-site at Rumble.
Training Questions
  • What are the benefits of running and cross-training?
    Aside from the full-body burn that leaves you feeling like a superstar? Here’s what we got:
    • Injury prevention
    • Rehabilitation
    • Overall stronger muscles / more muscle endurance
    • Increased metabolism
    • Attacks broader range of muscle groups
    • Higher level of endurance
    • Enhanced efficiency of body / power
    • Enhanced motivation
    • Reduced blood sugar / improve oxygen consumption
    • Helps lose fat
    • Rejuvenation
    • Cross-training may be the right move for you because it adds variety to your fitness routine, keeping the motivation high to stick with it and see real results.
  • Why running?
    They don’t call it runner’s high for nothing. When you get in the zone and find your stride, running can significantly improve physical and mental health.
    As a form of heart-pumping, aerobic exercise, running can reduce stress, improve heart health, and even help alleviate symptoms of depression. When in doubt, run it out.
  • Will Training classes help me lose weight?
    The short answer: yep.
    With a variety of movements and physical activity in a single class, cross-training can help speed weight loss because it allows you to combine more than one form of physical activity in a single exercise session. This lets you work out safely for longer periods of time, enhancing the fat-burning systems of your muscles. How’s that for efficiency?
  • How many days per week should I Train?
    That’s a question best answered by your doc and your personal trainer, but if you have the go-ahead, 2-3 days of HIIT per week is solid.
    With the variety of movements, Training is a safe, effective workout and the physical benefits continue even after you step off the treadmill. You know you best, so choose your schedule based on how your body feels and the goals you’re ready to crush.
  • What do I need for class?
    Nothing special — just traditional cross-training shoes or running shoes to keep you light on your feet.
    Wear something you feel comfortable moving in that you don’t mind getting drenched in sweat.
