Fitness class lovers will rejoice at the news that Rumble Boxing is finally opening in Hoboken. With over 7 different locations in NYC, plus locations in Philly, California, and Washington D.C., Rumble has already proven to be a wildly popular concept.
The site of the new gym will be located at 1202 Shipyard Lane in Uptown Hoboken. Beginners to boxing are totally welcome as the gym provides boxing gloves and quick wraps to purchase upon taking a class.
First timers can expect an informative and exhilarating experience. The class starts off on the floor where you'll be standing next to other class members each facing an individual punching bag. During those first 5 minutes the instructor will break down each of the 6 different punches that will be used and explain the class format so there's no confusion once you get started. Following that, there will be a warm up involving cardio. After that, it is glove time. The instructor will begin leading you in 3 rounds of boxing on the bags. The throw combos will be relatively easy to follow. After those 3 rounds you'll hit the other side of the gym known as the floor, away from the punching bags. It is here that you will be doing some quick strength and conditioning workouts involving weights. You'll then head back to the bags for two more rounds of each, the class typically lasts 45 minutes.
The vibes at Rumble are super high energy. If working out is your time to zone out and unwind this is not the class for you. A mega watt surround sound system bumps rap artists like Cardi B, Drake, and Biggie. You can also expect that same loud intense energy from your class instructor as well.
If its your first time, Rumble currently offers a deal for 2 classes for just $36. You can then purchase 8 classes for $220 and from there you can up to 30 classes at a time for a total of $900. One private training session costs $175 and a series of 10 training sessions will cost you $1,500.
An official opening date for the new Hoboken location has yet to be announced but the gym has officially released a “coming soon” memo on the website and Instagram page. Following all other Rumble location hours, the gym will be open seven days a week from 9AM to 5PM.
