DeWitt's training program[edit]

  • Offers extensive work on speed bag, heavy bag, and wall bag. The focus is to improve hand speed, coordination, and strength. Technique, punch combinations, and defensive movements are taught one-on-one with hand pad contact.
  • Incorporated into the training is an intensive cardio workout with jump rope repetition, lightweight training, and use of the medicine ball. Footwork and ring movement are also taught.
  • Class format is specifically designed to be a “boxer’s workout.” The training for both men and women is modified to each individual’s capabilities.
