Frequently Asked Questions

Can i join a class if i am a beginner?

Everyone is welcome at our BOXiQ classes, from the pure beginner through to boxing professional. BOXiQ classes will develop your boxing strength and condition as well as boxing skills and techniques.

Will I burn fat and tone up by taking a boxing class?

A BOXiQ class will help you tone your body, increase your cardiovascular system, trim down your waistline and build your boxing talents and punch power. In our BOXiQ boxing classes you will burn upwards of 1000 calories whilst learning techniques and boxing drills.

What kit and equipment do I need to bring?

For your first few classes all you will need is your normal training kit (shorts, t-shirt, trainers, etc.). We can provide you with gloves to wear but once you progress we highly recommend that you purchase your own gloves and wraps (it's much more hygienic!...and you can purchase these at GymNation)

You can book Group Classes (beginner or advanced) starting from AED75 per session or AED399 unlimited monthly.

BOXiQ Testimonials

Matthew Kelly

About 5 months ago I went to try a BoxIQ class at Gymnation and ever since then I’ve been hooked! In the first few sessions I could not last 1 minute on the pads with Joe, however I kept trying and with consistency and skilled coaching I am now fitter than I’ve ever been. Joe’s knowledge of boxing, technical skills as a coach and endless patience with us newbies motivates us all to keep coming back.
