How to Prepare

Expect To Sweat A LOTDress accordingly. Hydrate before class - it'll help you push through tough intervals.

Arrive Early: We recommend arriving 20 minutes before class is scheduled for newcomers. There’s nothing worse than feeling rushed when class is starting. Please note that your bag will be given away promptly at the start of class to waitlist clients. If you are running late, just call the front desk before the start of class and we’ll be happy to hold your bag for up to 8 minutes after the scheduled class start time. Late arrivals exceeding this courtesy becomes disruptive to the instructor and other clients so we appreciate your consideration.

Upon Arrival: check-in with the front desk & X out your name on our sign-in sheet.

Get Your Gear Sorted: We offer custom QUICK WRAPS for sale for $4.00 and GLOVE RENTAL for $1.00. Our rental gloves are our own SBX custom brand and replaced regularly so only nearly new pairs go on your hands. At SHADOWBOX, cleanliness is sacrosanct! We donate our used gloves to charities throughout NYC, and also offer gloves for sale. BYO is encouraged! (12-16oz recommended).
