LA Boxing, located in Merrillville, Indiana, offers a variety of classes including Kickboxing, Boxing and Sparring, Muay Thai, Mixed Martial Arts, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (via Champion Brazilian Jiu Jitsu).

Using a heavy bag, gloves, jump rope, timer and music, the workouts build cardio endurance and muscle tone. The concept is unique in that it teaches proper punching and kicking form and basic fighting techniques while offering a full-body workout. Classes are taught in a group setting to boost participation and intensity, and they are scheduled at convenient times.
