We trial Undercard Boxing

By Jess Arrowsmith • 2 months ago • HEALTH & FITNESS


We recently shared breaking (fitness) news that boxing-meets-strength-meets-HIIT hot spot Undercard Boxing had just launched in Sydney.

And what has rightfully earnt breakthrough hype in the cutthroat industry, Triple White put the class to the test. Our verdict? We’re obsessed.



THE FACTS:

Founded by legendary personal trainer Zach Vickers whose trained some of the fittest faces in the industry – including Victoria’s Secret model Georgia Fowler, former Miss Universe Australia turned media personality Jesinta Franklin and P.E Nation founder Pip Edwards – Undercard offers boxing-led high-intensity interval training method classes.



THE SPOT:

Undercard Boxing is located in Sydney’s downtown Darlinghurst suburb – perfectly central and easily accessible.

Proving the classes are as cool as the gym’s aesthetic, fitness goers are instantly transported into an ultra cool, edgy and ever New York-esque two-floor centre.

When you first walk in, you’re met with a reception and glove check-in, a barista espresso and protein-driven smoothie bar, numbered lockers and luxury bathroom amenities and change-room facilities. Also located on the ground floor is a break-out, personal one-to-one boxing studio equipped with the hottest machines going around.

The best bit? Epic artwork lines the ever-cool interior, completing the vibe in the coolest way we’ve seen yet.

But… you haven’t seen anything yet.

Downstairs, the blackout room features heavy-duty water-filled Aqua training bags that are suspended from the ceiling and paired with a number on the floor. Lining the outskirts of the orange-lit room features treadmills and a workbench with free-weights to complete each rotation station.



THE VERDICT:

‘From the minute I walked into Undercard, the understated cool vibe whisked me away. As a fitness fiend, I’m constantly looking for an equal dose of hard work and positive vibes… and Undercard left me a sweaty mess (in the best way possible) with my endorphins pumping!’

‘Between learning new boxing techniques, sprinting and hitting the floor with some serious weight and bodyweight complex combos, the class was a total game changer, complete with epic tunes and Zach’s positive encouragement and instruction.

‘Decked out with all the trimmings, you’ll be met with a pair of exclusively created Undercard boxing gloves, before making your way downstairs to the studio where all the hard work and fun happens’

‘I can speak from experience that finding a gym that not only meets but exceeds your every need is rare. But what Undercard having gone on – I’m all about it. And I know Syndey will be too.’



Need way say more?

Undercard offers six classes per day beginning with a 5:30 am session through until 7:00 pm.

Where: The gym is located at 82 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst in Sydney.
