Northridge - The Student Recreation Center (SRC) at the University Student Union (USU) encourages all SRC members to put on the boxing gloves and expand their workout skills at the “Train Like a Pro Boxing Challenge”. From Monday, Nov. 7 to Friday, Nov. 11 during regular Boxing Training Program (BTP) hours in the Determination Studio, members will enhance their fitness routines with lessons in fundamental boxing skills and techniques focused on the areas of shadowboxing, heavy bag, speedbag and jump rope. Participants will also have the opportunity to win great raffle prizes during this exciting boxing challenge event.

“We love to challenge our members in any and all areas of physical activity to help them improve their fitness abilities,” said SRC Fitness Coordinator Amanda Christianson. “The ‘Train Like A Pro Boxing Challenge’ offers them the fun of learning new skills along with a chance to win a prize – whether they have some boxing experience or they’re a complete beginner.”

Participating members can register for the boxing challenge and track their workouts through the SRC Challenges Portal. The first 60 members to sign up will receive a free pair of boxing hand wraps.
