NY BOXING Group in Cohoes, New York, was established by professional Heavyweight boxer Shannon Miller and his brother amateur boxer Shawn Miller to teach everyday people how to train and fight like professionals. Where NY BOXING differs from all of the other local boxing gyms is that NY BOXING’S classes are taught by actual Boxers who have had boxing matches, not just thought about it or watched it on TV. NY BOXING’S goals are simple: to teach our clients how to throw and avoid punches correctly, and to condition and train them like real fighters do prior to a fight.
NY BOXING group offers over sixty adult classes monthly. We also offer two youth classes a week. Classes usually have two or three instructors and clients are instructed on working on the heavy bag, speed bag, double end bag, jumping rope and each client gets individual interaction with instructors via one on one hand pad work. Each class also includes an extensive exercise routine which includes such things as push-ups, sit-ups, pull throughs and leg lifts to work abs and to help in building and conditioning muscle.
Whether you are a beginner who has neither seen or put on a pair of boxing gloves, or someone looking for a different form of exercise or workout, or you have the desire to take your workouts and career to the professional level, NY BOXING is the place for you. Our classes include both men and women, young and old, and you will work at your own level and pace.
Shannon and Shawn Miller grew up in the boxing business. For over twenty years, their father, Bob, owned and operated the Uncle Sam’s Boxing club in Troy. Their mother Lorraine was Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson’s first promoter and promoted about 15 of Mike’s first fights. Over the years, both Bob and Lorraine have helped numerous local fighters reach the top of the sport. Still today, Bob works with a number of world champions and can be seen monthly on national television.
NY Boxing also offers a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (Upstate Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) program which is led by Ryan Clark.
