Class Action: Warrior Fight Club at Uplift Studios


Golden Gloves champ and avid yogi Amanda Rose Walsh combined her two passions into this intense total body workout.
Don’t be fooled: Amanda Rose Walsh may look sweet, but she’ll kick your butt.

Boxing and yoga may seem like a mismatched pair, but Golden Gloves champ turned avid yogi Amanda Rose Walsh would disagree.

She combined her two passions into this intense total body workout that starts with a few sun salutations followed by some punching drills (gloves on!).

Then, we moved into tough one-minute circuits that involved jumping rope, lunges, planks, push-ups, punching, and boxing foot work. There were also interminable wall sits to get through.

By the second round of yoga, the chaturangas had become nearly impossible, but Walsh kept pushing. Her status as a disciple of Marco Rojas is obvious—Warrior poses are held for longer than you can possibly imagine, and she keeps telling you to get deeper, deeper, deeper.

Throughout class, you’re generally punching into the air with gloves, but Walsh walks around with pads so you get a chance to make contact a few times—which takes the edge off a whole lot of pent-up stress. As does the final Savasana. You’ll leave feeling stronger, stretched, and de-stressed.

Who’s it for: Anyone looking to mix up their workouts, yogis who like a challenge, boxing lovers who need a good stretch.

Book it or skip it: Book it.

Mondays at 6:00 p.m., Uplift Studios, 24 West 23rd St., between 5th and 6th Aves., Flatiron, $32, www.upliftstudios.com
