Poughkeepsie Boxing

The sport of boxing has been helping people from all different walks of life better themselves for centuries. However, quality Poughkeepsie boxing has been hard to come by.  Precision MMA in LaGrange, NY (just outside Poughkeepsie) is changing that.  There are many different motivations that drive people to put on a pair of gloves and step into a boxing gym.  A quality boxing gym will work with all boxers, not simply fighters or potential superstars.

Precision MMA offers a safe, clean and supportive environment for boxers across Dutchess County to learn the sweet science.  The first thing that sets Precision MMA apart from many traditional boxing gyms are the group classes.  Many boxing gyms offer only one on one training working with only a single boxer and a single trainer. However, being able to learn in a group builds in a support system of boxers working together to achieve similar goals.  Boxers build camaraderie and friendships making trips to the boxing gym about more than just punches.

Precision’s Poughkeepsie boxing program also offers many different types of classes all of which cater to different boxers.  New boxers are brought into fundamental classes.  At these training sessions boxers work on the essentials of footwork, punching technique, head movement, stance and combinations.  Partner drills, pad work and coordination exercises make up the core of the program.  New Poughkeepsie boxers are not made to spar and no one leaves these classes with black eyes or a bloody nose.

Circuit training classes challenge Poughkeepsie boxers with different sports specific exercises focusing mainly on cardio and strength building.  Boxers become familiar with the heavy bags, jump ropes, double end and maze bags which are part of Precision MMA’s amazing 5,000 square foot facility.  Shadow boxing and calisthenics are also staples of these classes.  Boxers of all experience levels from novice to professional build their fight fitness in these incredible classes.  Others use these classes to lose weight and relieve stress.  Precision boxing is full of success stories from boxers across Poughkeepsie who have lost weight and kept it off.

For those interested in learning boxing for self defense sparring classes exist that simulate street fight scenarios.  Here boxers learn how to stop attackers using combinations and defensive tactics.  Everyday people come to these classes to learn the skills that will keep them safe walking home late at night.

Finally, for boxers who dream of stepping into the ring Precision has competition classes with the goal of creating champions.  Boxers work one on one with coaches doing intense pad sessions and hard sparring with boxers from all levels – amateur to professional.  The Precision boxing team has produced some of Dutchess County’s most accomplished boxers, home of multiple golden gloves champions. Precision emphasizes skill over power and makes sure that its boxers are smart and slick rather than glorified brawlers.
