New Maple Grove Fitness Studio Packs a Punch
Title Boxing Club will open in a former mattress store in Maple Grove soon. The owner says the workouts are for getting in shape only, not competitions, and the classes range from 45 to 60 minutes.
Inside a New Space
In a few days the plastic bags come off the heavy bags and TITLE Boxing Club opens in a former Maple Grove mattress store on Fountains Drive.
“We’ve basically taken all the good from boxing and made it into a great workout club,” said TITLE Boxing Club owner Steven Coopersmith. “It’s a group fitness class.”
The boxing classes are exhausting. Participants experience a workout trifecta – cardio, strength and resistance training.
“Three minutes on a bag. It’s an intense workout,” said Coopersmith. “You just feel empowered,” Coopersmith said. “In the end, why do people workout? Because they want to feel good. You do this and you feel good.”
Boxing minus the punches
Don’t be fooled by the name. According to Coopersmith, the workouts are for getting in shape only. Members can channel their inner Floyd Mayweather, without worrying about concussions or other injuries.
“There’s no black eyes,” Coopersmith said. “There’s no bloody noses. The only thing that will be hit in these clubs are these bags.”
Classes range from 45 to 60 minutes and there are eight three-minute rounds.
“Our goal is to be the best hour of our members day,” Coopersmith said.
Participants throw jabs, hooks and upper cuts at 100 pound bags, while a trainer watches and motivates.
‘All shapes and sizes’
Participants at TITLE Boxing club run the gamut when it comes to age. They’ve got members as young as 8 and as old as 70.
“They come in all shapes and sizes,” Coopersmith said. “We have super fit people. Ben Leber from the Vikings is one of our members. Then we have people who are looking to get in shape for the first time ever.”
This is the third club Coopersmith owns. He is glad to finally be in Maple Grove.
“I’m super excited to be opening in the Northwest suburbs…” Coopersmith said. “No exaggeration, for four years I have been looking for a location in Maple Grove.”
