Before your First Class
What's the GRIT BXNG class like?
In a word: fun.
GRIT BXNG is aquabags, treadmills, and floor exercises. We’ll push you to sweat, grind, and re-define your idea of fitness.
GRIT trainers are the best in the world, from all over the world, and they’ve got your back.
Our priority is YOU. We’ll coach you on form, we’ll show you the ropes, we’ll make you laugh.
What if I can’t keep up?
GRIT BXNG is for everyone. Seriously. You can modify—just keep those hands up. If you can’t sprint, jog. If you can’t jog, walk it out.
Listen to your body.
Boxing looks intimidating. How do I overcome that fear?
GRIT BXNG classes begin with the fundamentals. Rome wasn’t built in a day—Muhammad Ali wasn’t either.
GRIT is a judgment free zone. Trainers motivate, coach and inspire.
What is the GRIT studio experience like?
The room is dark. The lightshow transforms. Media screens offer demos at every point throughout class. And our sound system is always bumping.
Is boxing good for me?
Decrease stress. Relieve pent up aggression. Build confidence. Look and feel and move like a bad ass and have fun doing it.
Does that sound good for you? At GRIT BXNG the answer is always yes.
Will boxing make me too muscular?
GRIT BXNG is more than just arms. GRIT is core, lower body, back and chest.
GRIT is full body sweating and lean muscle building in all the right places.
Burn more than 700 calories in a session. Rev your metabolism, and keep burning after class.
Can I workout if I’m injured or pregnant?
You do you. Modify as needed. But speak with your doctor first.
Everything can be scaled up or down. You choose. We also have one Keiser bike for anyone who prefers to sub in a bike for a treadmill during their workout. Just show up to use it during your session!
What should I wear?
Wear kicks that you can run in. Clothes that you can punch in.
Wear what makes you feel like a badass.
What do I need to bring to class at GRIT?
We got you. We provide water, towels, gloves, and wraps.
Glove rental is $3. Hand wraps are yours to keep for $8.
Why do I need wraps?
So you can punch. Hard.
Wraps protect your wrists and hands when you’re throwing shots.
Wraps look cool.
Do I need to bring my own water?
You can but there’s no need. We gotcha. We’ll keep you hydrated.
GRIT BXNG offers environmentally friendly refillable water bottles for purchase made from aluminum. No plastic waste. We also have a water-refilling station.
Booking a Class
How do I book a class?
Create a GRIT BXNG account with your email or phone number. Login.
If you’re a new to GRIT, start off with our intro package. Buy class packages and reserve your spot in class: choose to start on a bench, bag or treadmill.
Where should I start? Treadmill, Benches, or Bags?
Wherever your heart desires. For first timers, we suggest that you begin on the bags. Our trainers will provide a demo of the 6 punches demo you will need to know at the start of class. Our instructional videos screens will help you keep form throughout your boxing rounds.
How early do I need to show up to class?
Those with GRIT arrive on time. We suggest 10 minutes early.
At class start time: open spaces are released to the waitlist.
What if I’m late, or can’t make it to my scheduled class?
All classes start on time, because we know you’re a badass and we know you’ve got places to be.
If you’re more than five minutes late, we can’t allow entry into class.
Can’t make it? Cancel by 8:00 pm the night before, and the class will be returned to your account.
Missed the cancelation window? You risk losing your class credit.
How do I know if I’ve gotten off the waitlist?
Those added from the waitlist are auto-enrolled and notified or email. If it's the day of the class, we'll give you a call. Can't make class? Please let us know.
Still on the waitlist? Show up. Our "GRIT Waitlist Guarantee" makes it risk free.
Come to the studio at 9 East 16th Street 15 minutes before your class. If you do NOT make it into class, you'll get your credit back PLUS receive another credit for a future class. It's a win-win situation.
How do I use my "Bring a Friend" guest pass?
To use your "Bring a Friend" guest pass, please follow these simple instructions:
1. Send the 6-character guest pass code to your friend. You can send a text or email right from your GRIT account.
2. Only your friend can book. You cannot book for them.
3. Your friend must be BRAND NEW to GRIT. If they've already signed up before, they won't be able to use the code. Share the love with someone else.
4. Your friend can visit GRITBXNG.com, hit Book a Class, and pick their time and starting location like you did. Then - "I have a ‘Bring a Friend’ pass" at checkout. Do not select "I have a coupon code." It won't work that way.
5. Your friend will enter their "Bring a Friend" code and create their account and checkout in less than 60 seconds.
We know it can be difficult to sync schedules, so your friend can use their guest pass with you or on their own. It's up to them.
Is there an age limit for the class?
We go hard and loud and sweaty. We go sexy and powerful and fun.
GRIT BXNG classes are not open to those under the age of 16.
Can I get a drink before class?
The full-service liquor bar? After class only please. No liquor then lifting!
We’ll make you earn it first.
Is there a place to store my belongings?
Secure lockers are available for use before and after class. Leave your valuables and your worries behind.
Are there showers at GRIT?
GRIT BXNG facilities include showers, complementary towels, luxury toiletries, hair dryers and a beautiful vanity for your beautiful self.
Crush your workout, hit the showers, drink a kombucha at the bar.
I think I’ve forgotten something at the studio!
Call us. We’ll help you right away.
Do you sell gift cards?
Gift cards are coming for the holidays. Your friends are our friends.
