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 have gloves available to purchase at the front desk for $45.

Do You have covid protocols?

NBB follows current CDC guidelines.  We do not require masks to be worn in the facility by anyone fully vaccinated, though we suggest members who aren’t vaccinated continue to wear a mask.  We disinfect bags daily and use commercial grade fans to promote proper air flow throughout the facility.  We have extra masks at the front desk for anyone wishing to wear one.

Do I have to sign up in advance?

Classes at NBB are popular and some classes tend to fill up quickly, so we do require online registration for all classes.  Not to worry though, as we’ve made the process as fast and easy as possible!  Simply click the “Schedule and Booking” tab at the top of the website to be taken to our registration portal.  Click on a class you’d like to attend, pick a date and time, enter your name and email address, and you’re good to go!  No pre-payment is necessary, simply reserve your spot and come on by!

Is there a Minimum Age?

NBB welcomes anyone who is middle school aged (6th grade) or older, though the clientele is largely composed of adults 18 and older.  The language and environment is that of a boxing club, and as such parents should use their personal discretion prior to signing up a child for a class.  Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian fill out the waiver prior to their first class.

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.
