what to expect during your first pawn session
Come 10-15 minutes before your first session to sign your waiver and have your hands wrapped by a Coach.
Let us know at this time if you would like to borrow a heartrate tracker during your session so you can keep track of all the calories you're burning during your session!
Every PAWN session starts with active dynamic stretches and a warm up with our signature MOVE section.
The MOVE section is 4 rounds (Easy, Medium, Hard, & Max Effort) comprised of 2 exercises followed by a stretch. MOVE sections change for each workout and focus on either arms, legs, core, or full body.
Every pro starts off with good fundamentals. Learn or review boxing basics with stance, footwork & movement, and straight punches.
You can be sure that you will start your boxing journey on the right path during this instruction period. Learn proper form & technique so you will be punching harder and faster safely in no time!
Now it's time to get a little sweaty and have a some fun! Practice what you just learned with some boxing footwork drills, heavy bag work and mittwork in a boxing ring with a Certified Coach.
Our sessions are kept small enough so a Coach will always be available to answer any questions or provide guidance if needed.
Every session finishes off with a fun relay activity focusing on strength & conditioning. Relays are typically completed as a group and may require partner cooperation or be of a competitive nature.
After, we will all stretch out and cooldown together....
You've made it through your first Checkmate Boxing class!
