Coming soon: TITLE Boxing Club

More than 40 heavy boxing bags are headed to a new retail building slated for construction at 55th & Lyndale.

TITLE Boxing Club classes are based on boxing and kickboxing workouts, but people aren’t actually hitting each other. Workouts include high-energy calisthenics, shadow boxing and several rounds of hitting 100-pound bags.

“You win every time,” said Steven Coopersmith, franchisee owner and operator.

He said the act of punching works well as a stress-reducer.

“It might be the most stress-relieving thing you’ve ever done,” he said. “As long as you’re pushing it, you’re going to burn a ton of calories. It’s all about your core.”

The franchise includes six other Minnesota locations, including one in Edina.

Title Boxing Club anticipates a fall opening date, following construction on the former Borton Volvo lot.
