FAQ

What do I need for my first class?

As you’ve likely seen by now, your first class with us is absolutely free!  You’ll need to sign a waiver (or have a parent/guardian sign one if you’re under the age of 18), wear some comfortable athletic clothing, bring a water bottle, as well as hand wraps.  We recommend 180″ hand wraps which can be purchased online through a major boxing retailer or in person at NBB (we sell pairs for $5).  We have communal gloves available to use, though we strongly advise purchasing your own.  We also sell gloves here at NBB for $45.

Do I have to sign up in advance?

No!  At NBB, we want to make working out as accessible and enjoyable as possible.  Want to take a class?  Show up a few minutes early with the materials found above and we’ll get you sweating in no time!  No need to sign up in advance, no need to worry about classes filling up, no need to reschedule or cancel an appointment.  If we’re open, then you’re welcome to come on down!

Where do I park?

We have a large parking lot located directly in front of our building at 20 Sun Street in Waltham.  If for some reason the lot has filled, there is a large amount of on street parking as well on both sides of Sun Street.  Rest assured, if you drive to the gym, you’ll find a spot close by!

Do I have to punch anyone or get punched?

Of course not!  Though we offer technique classes for those looking to eventually compete in the sport of boxing, all of our other classes are created with the sole purpose of getting you in the best shape of your life.

I’m in terrible shape, is NBB the right gym for me?

Absolutely!  Though we motivate members to achieve the absolute most out of every single class, we can modify any exercise to cater directly to your ability level.  No matter where your level of fitness starts, we can assure you we can get you in better shape.
