OUR LIVE CHAT TO GET A QUICK RESPONSE.

What is a Rumble Class like?
In a word, it’s electrifying. Ten Rounds. Two Fists. Zero Experience Necessary. We start with a group warm up and a shadow boxing session. Then you’ll spend half of the 45 minute class pounding our special tear-drop style, water-filled bags and half of the class at your station doing strength and body-weight conditioning exercises. The music is jamming, the lights are sexy, and the vibe is 100% supportive.
I've never boxed before, will I be able to keep up?
Absolutely. Our workouts are beginner friendly and designed to allow everyone to Rumble at their own pace. Five minutes before class, we’ll call First Timers into the studio for our “pre-class,” where we go over the six punches.
What if I can't do everything in class? I haven't worked out in a while.
Don’t sweat it. If you can move, you can Rumble. Instructors offer modifications for many of the exercises we do in class, so you’ll have options.
Is there a beginner class?
No, but all of our classes are suitable for beginners. We also offer private coaching if you’d like to brush up with some one-on-one technique before you step into a class setting, but it’s certainly not a pre-req for taking class.
Do I need to own my own gloves?
Nope. Gloves are available to rent ($3) or for purchase at our front desk, but if you have a favorite pair that you’d like to bring, we totally understand.
How old do you have to be to take a class?
13. We offer special event classes that are suitable for all age groups. Birthday parties, Bat Mitzvahs, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and book clubs are all welcomed.
Do you offer corporate events or private classes for groups?
Yes, we offer bag blocks, class exclusives, and venue exclusives. All event info can be found here. Any additional questions can be directed to events@rumble-boxing.com.
Where are you located?
Rumble Chelsea/Flatiron is on the south side of 23rd Street between 6th and 7th avenues. Rumble Noho is on the east side of Broadway at East 4th Street. Look for Jab (that's our logo).
Do you have lockers?
We sure do. Probably too many. No need to bring a lock, we’ve got that covered as well. And if your phone has no juice (hey, it’s NYC right?), snag a locker with the battery logo on the front so you can charge it during class.
Do you have water or should I bring my own?
We sell Essentia water available at the front desk for $3. If you’d prefer to bring your own bottle, we also have a filling station available in our lobby.
Is there food available at Rumble?
No, but we can direct you to several places close by!
Do I need to create an account?
Yes. It’s very simple and should take you less than 1 minute.
Do I have to buy a package or a membership?
No. You can buy a single class if you’re terrified of commitment. We offer a first time rate, where you purchase one class and the second one is on us.
Do you offer monthly memberships?
There are no membership fees at Rumble. We currently offer 5, 10, 20, 30, and our 50 class series (which includes priority waitlist and advance booking.) We also offer private one-on-one training and can accommodate special events.
When do classes become available to book online?
2 full weeks of classes become available for booking every Monday at 7 AM.
How does the waitlist work?
We automatically enroll waitlisted clients into class up to 12 hours prior to the class start time. After the 12-hour mark, we will call you if we are able to secure you a spot in class. We can only hold the spot if we're able to reach you; otherwise, we will release it to the next client on the waitlist. That said, we always encourage waitlisted clients to come to the studio, as we are often able to get clients in on a walk-in basis.
When should I arrive?
We recommend arriving at the studio 15 minutes before class for check-in.
What do I do when I get there?
Say what’s up to whoever is at the front desk and mention that it is your first time. They’ll get you taken care of.
What if I’m running late?
To ensure that your spot is not released to the waitlist, please arrive at Rumble at least five minutes prior to the start of your class. To be respectful of others, there will be no entry five minutes after the class has started.
Something came up. Can I cancel?
If you need to cancel class, please do so by 5PM the night before your class. You can cancel your class by clicking on the "My Classes" tab. Emergencies happen and things come up. If you would like to attempt a same day switch, which is permitted without losing a credit (subject to availability), please email us at contact@rumble-boxing.com. If you do not show for you reservation, or if you attempt to cancel online after 5PM the night before your class, you will be charged for that reservation.
What should I wear?
Whatever is comfy and makes you feel fly.
What shoes should I wear?
Most clients wear traditional cross-training shoes. Bonus points if you have boxing shoes, but they’re not necessary.
Do you have showers?
We do. There are multiple showers in both the men’s and women’s locker rooms. Towels, vanities, hair dryers, and bath and body products compliments of Beekman 1802 are also provided.

Will boxing make me too muscular?
No. Boxing will build lean muscle-mass and tone your entire body. The combination of cardio and strength training will allow you to burn calories without bulking up. With an intense focus on improving core strength, you'll be ready to show off that six-pack sooner than you thought.
Is boxing good for you?
A Rumble class is HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), strength training, (METCON) metabolic conditioning, and cardio all in one - making it an incredible total body workout. You'll see improved balance and coordination, increased metabolism, and experience the potential to burn up to 13 calories per minute. Our aqua bags reduce the impact on your joints, and the shape increases trainer visibility so that you'll never feel lost during class. Our favorite part? The endorphins released during exercise mean that chances are high that you'll walk out feeling happier too.
Will I lose weight boxing?
Boxing has proven to be one of the most effective forms of exercise for losing weight. The combination of burning calories and gaining muscle directly results in weight loss.
Why should I choose boxing?
Since no two classes are the same - we keep your body guessing, making it nearly impossible to hit a weight loss plateau, and even less likely for you to get bored. The back and forth between aerobic and anaerobic exercise means you're training on an entirely new level. Even better, the boost in your metabolism ensures you'll be burning calories throughout class, and long after you leave.
Can I take class if I’m pregnant?
We’ve had clients train right up to D-Day, but that is a question better suited for you and your doctor.
What are wraps, do I really need them?
Yes. We require wraps on the training floor. Wraps help protect your hands and wrists while punching the bag. We have slip-on wraps available to purchase for $8.
Why do you offer quick wraps instead of traditional hand wraps?
In order to maximize your comfort and minimize your setup time, we offer quick wraps for $8 which only take seconds to slip on and secure to your wrist. They'll keep your knuckles pretty even if your punches are brutal. Yours to keep and machine washable, be sure to bring ‘em back for class #2.

If you’d prefer to use traditional hand wraps, that’s cool too. Here’s a video of how to wrap up like the pros.

Please note that due to time constraints, we don't wrap hands with traditional wraps on-site at Rumble.
