How do you describe G-BOX in a sentence for first-timers?
Gotham G-BOX is a total body workout designed exclusively for the new studio, combining boxing techniques, cardio and calisthenics.
How is your concept different to other boxing classes?
My original Gotham Gym in the West Village offers a mix of expertly led boxing, Muay Thai, and sculpt, and tone classes. G-BOX is purely boxing and really focuses on technique and working each muscle group. Classes are held every day inside a boxing ring, housed in a dramatic stone walled space in Soho. Gotham G-BOX is a unique spot for clients to enjoy more privacy, move, and sweat to loud music and lose themselves in the class. G-BOX is a perfect balance of cardio and resistance training.
How many people are typically in a class?
The class sizes are relatively small; never more than 16 people, and led by two instructors, providing the benefit of both individual attention and the energy of a group class environment. Gotham G-BOX instructors are focused on improving each clients’ boxing technique.
OK, so I arrive at my first G-BOX workout. What should I expect?
The 60-minute class begins with a cardio warm up, followed by shadow boxing, pad work with a partner, and finishes with floor exercises that focus on core work and toning.

An hour is a long time to box! How do you keep the class motivated?
Our G-BOX trainers are all badass and are there to keep the class pumped as well as instruct and correct form. The space itself was designed to provide a little extra motivation, we have boxing quotes up on the walls, and even the stairs will tell you not to be a pussy. Also you’ll be boxing in the shadow of the great Muhammad Ali – his fights are projected on the back wall of the ring.
What inspired the idea to launch G-BOX?
With a dedicated following of class goers at the West Village location, Gotham became widely known for its effective workouts and high profile fan base, so I brand partnered with WellPath Solutions to meet the growing demand for more offerings.
Since opening up G-BOX with WellPath in Soho we’ve been able to teach a way higher volume of people, which is great. And vice versa, the new studio gives a lot more New Yorkers the chance to come and train with the Gotham team
