Boxing     

 

At the Fitness Loft, our belief is that fitness doesn’t just come from gutting out old-school weightlifting or pounding mile after mile of running. We believe that a holistic approach to wellness, fitness, and community is the only way to create lifelong health and fitness. To this end, we also believe in utilizing the latest in technology to assist our community members in reaching their fitness goals. You use the latest technology in everything you do. Why should your gym be stuck in decades past?


One of the coolest new fitness offerings we are in love with is Virtual Title Bout Boxing. This class is a boxing class with all the heart-pumping and muscle-blasting intensity of going toe-to-toe in the ring but without any black eyes or swollen knuckles. Of all the boxing classes in Columbus, Ohio, this is the safest and probably the most fun!

 

Virtual Sports

 

Nowadays, the e-sports revolution is taking hold all over the country. Most e-sports are usually played in large, comfy chairs with energy drinks at hand. But not all e-sports are console video games. Virtual reality technology has opened up a whole new arena for real-life exercise. From running along stunning vista views on the Pacific Coast Highway or boxing with realistic opponents in Virtual Title Bout Boxing to playing an intense full set of tennis at Wimbledon, virtual reality can enhance exercise in an all-new way.

 

If you’re looking for a boxing gym, Columbus is a great city for you. After a quick search for Columbus boxing, there will definitely be some great legendary gyms and trainers here in town. But, you might be more interested in a safe, supportive gym community like ours here at the Fitness loft, where Columbus boxing meets exciting virtual tournament-style competition without any bruises.

 

The Boxing Body

 

People everywhere agree that boxing is an incredible workout. Boxing combines intense aerobic exercise with constant anaerobic muscle engagement and quick-fire moves. It’s a perfect full-body workout. Because of the variability, it uses muscle confusion to keep your body recovering differently after every workout, which can increase muscle definition and metabolism.

 

Boxing creates a chiseled, resilient physique in its devotees. But, there’s also another not-so-great association with boxing. Swollen noses and ears, missing teeth and more serious conditions like traumatic brain injury are unfortunate side effects of the sweet science. We take all of these risks away and keep all the competitive fire and muscle-blasting exercise.

 

How Does it Work?

 

VBL, or Virtual Boxing League, is the software we use for this class. When you arrive, you’ll put a Virtual Reality headset on and use special sensors in your gloves or in your hands. What you’ll experience is a realistic fight like no other.

 

VBL uses advanced motion capture from real boxers to simulate the experience of fighting opponents with many different styles. Each boxing style utilizes different skills and muscle groups. The physics engine that governs how your virtual opponent reacts to your hits is the best in its class, creating a lifelike experience that immerses every one of our VBL clients.

 

Boxing Columbus Ohio

 

We hold classes at different times, with multiple classes every week. If you’re looking to do more boxing, Columbus Ohio is the newest hub for the most modern development in the sweet sport. Whether you’re a lifelong boxer hoping to continue your development in safety or just interested in starting out, the Fitness Loft is the place for you. We provide in-house nutritional support, small class instruction, and expert personal training as well. Come by or sign up online!
