The Training Program
Fight For Chicago participants will receive:
- Funding for a gym membership at Sam Colonna Boxing MMA & Fitness
- A “starter kit” of boxing equipment and athletic apparel
- A group training regimen
Learning the basics
Our program is designed for male and female athletes 8 to 18 years old who seek a positive environment to learn and grow.
We offer classes from 4PM to 5PM and from 5PM to 6PM Monday through Thursday every week.
A typical gym workout includes a warm up, a series of conditioning exercises (including jogging, jumping jacks, sit-ups and push-ups) and group drill/classes that focus on proper boxing technique
Boxers will learn the proper stance, technique, defense skills and participate in drills on the heavy bag, the speed bag, and the double-end bag. Our CHAMPS will also have the opportunity to spar with other boxers in the ring.
“Even when I’m in the ring I feel safe”
“The gym itself won’t take away your problems, but it motivates you to work hard in everything you do.”
“Boxing will discipline you, humble you and make you an all-around better person.”
