Have A Rocky Balboa Moment And A Fun Workout Session At Flyweight BGC!
It’s hard to stay in shape in the fast-paced world we live in. And workouts can sometimes feel like a chore—a dull and boring task to be fulfilled. But Flyweight Boxing Gym takes working out to the next level with their fun and kickass boxing sessions!
Fitness enthusiast Lorenzo Tañedo founded Flyweight for everyone to enjoy boxing as a sport. “One-on-one boxing training has always been popular, and with the rise of group fitness to include Crossfit and spinning workouts, we had an a-ha moment and Flyweight was born,” shares Lorenzo.
The name of the gym is a homage to the greatest Filipino boxing champions like Pancho Villa, Manny Pacquiao, and Donnie Nietes who at one point in their careers were flyweights.
Flyweight gives customers a Rocky Balboa moment in each boxing session with the hip music blasting in the background and dramatic lighting in the all-black studio. Each workout runs for 45 minutes and includes various bodyweight exercises for a whole body workout. It is a great way to release stress and negative tension!
“We’re known for being fun and for running a killer workout where you burn up to 600 kcal an hour!” explains Lorenzo.
“The group boxing session includes footwork, head movement, and punching combinations on a heavy bag, incorporating bodyweight exercises. We use music and lighting to set the mood, and we create a fun, non-aggro environment,” Lorenzo explains.
Drop ins are at P1000 per session, while first timers at Flyweight get 5 workouts for only P1500. Thereafter, packages come in increments of 3, 6, 10, 20 workouts.
Designed by architect Jake Lazo, the studio features sleek interiors that greatly match the boxing equipment inside. “We wanted space to move and do work, and we wanted to keep things clean and simple, but most important we wanted a comfortable place,” Lorenzo states. The focal point of course are the heavy boxing bags, which is the main foundation of Flyweight’s training regimen.
After throwing countless jabs and hooks, you walk out sweaty and tired, yet fulfilled and empowered after a thrilling boxing experience!
