With the plethora of new fitness fads out there and gyms opening up in almost every Naperville | Lisle strip mall from cross-fit to box-fit offering the “new trend in fitness”, we’re sure you would like to know what makes BANG Boxing & Fitness different from the next gym down the block with colorful equipment and trainers with popping veins that look like a river system on a map.
First off, BANG Boxing & Fitness was created with a very specific goal and vision set fourth far before even a gym location was sought after. We didn’t want to just be another boxing facility that trades money for sweat and calls it a day after class. We set a goal to be an interactive boxing and fitness facility in the Naperville | Lisle area that personally works with each and every student, every single boxing and fitness class for continual individual improvement, opposed to teaching boxing by demonstrating a 3 punch combination on a heavy bag a few times and hitting a timer accepting a students sweat as a lesson well received. We wanted every student to experience what its truly like to learn how to box, how to snap a jab out there with hip movement, how to slip a punch and fire back a counter, how to properly hit for maximum power all the while protecting the fragile bones in the hand with out paying the high hourly fees from $40-75 per hour to achieve these same results. We realized right off the bat our goal of being the most interactive boxing gym in the Naperville and Lisle area could not be achieved with a stable of heavy bags and a drill instructor type coach.
If you are familiar with the sport of boxing at all, you had to have come across the term “bag fighter”. For those unfamiliar, a bag fighter are those boxers that lack finesse and movement from the rigors of hitting a stationary bag day in and day out. Despite professional level skill these fighters show the effects of a heavy bag influenced training regimen. Although an extremely small percentage of our team will ever actually try their hand at boxing competition, the satisfaction they receive from working on a specific punch or technique from days to weeks and finally accomplishing their goal and owning that specific technique is what fuels us to be the facility we set out to be.
However we didn’t want to just stop there!
Because lets face it, what is boxing to fitness goals with out a well planned diet tailored to each individual’s nutritional needs? If you’re unsure of the answer, let this simple fact soak in. 70% of desired fitness goals are achieved by diet & nutrition with only 30% coming from exercise activity. It may be a bit surprising, however we can bet a free lesson that most of the facts you are unaware of concerning nutrition and the foods you eat will truly change the way you look at the majority of foods you feed yourself and loved ones for the rest of your life. Our general manager Lea Maric is a certified nutritionist specializing in holistic health as well, providing our team with access to custom tailored detox and diet plans that are absolutely life changing.

You know you’ve always wanted to try it. It’s always been in the back of your mind as you endlessly pounded the treadmill, dragging yourself through your workouts.

Part of it is fear; will you know how to hit correctly? What about those wraps and gloves? What if I don’t know how to kick while everyone else already looks like they know what they’re doing?

Muay Thai Lessons in Naperville | Lisle
Known as the art of 8 limbs, Muay Thai is a endurance testing workout that utilizes techniques that apply to real life defense and fighting situations. Muay Thai is commonly confused with American kickboxing which is similar however does differ in many ways. Muay Thai implements the art of using punches, kicks to legs, head and body, knee strikes, elbow strikes and throws from the clinch. Kickboxing does not allow elbows, knees, clinch, throws or kicks to the legs of an opponent. The devastating nature of Muay Thai has granted it as the chosen art for many law enforcement, body guards, military and secret service agents as it is very effective in far or close quarter combat. Muay Thai translated is “Free Boxing”. Thai meaning “free” and Muay meaning “Boxing”, dating back to Muay Thai helping in war to free the county when it was Siam.
