The highly-raved about CruBox Los Angeles is finally in Singapore – and we can’t wait to slip into our boxing gloves there.
Celebrities like The Kardashians and Nicole Scherzinger have tried and loved it. And now, so can you. CruBox Singapore officially opened on Jan 31, and is housed above its sister spin studio CruCycle in a Duxton Road shophouse. This popular boxing studio from Los Angeles was founded by Singaporean siblings Beatrice (Bebe) Ding, Calvin Ding and Valerie Ding, who opened the LA-inspired spin studio in Singapore back in 2014.
A glance around their industrial-chic space and you’ll notice a howling wolf logo – similar to CruCycle’s – everywhere, from boxing bags to boxing gloves and merch. Inspired by their own dogs, it hints at CruBox’s aim of building a community where everyone “fights with the pack”, just like CruCycle’s “ride with the pack” motto.
Box to the beat
If you’ve tried aqua boxing or spin in other boutique studios, you’ll be familiar with the club-like atmosphere, and the workout zone at CruBox is no different. A sand-filled punching bag demarcates your station – 36 in total, and towels and boxing gloves are provided. Quick hand wraps are available for purchase at the studio for $12.
During each 50-minute class, you can expect a high-intensity workout with an emphasis on boxing to the rhythm of a killer playlist, and intervals of strength training using dumbbells and kettlebells weaved in. Don’t miss themed classes like Hip Hop Wednesdays or 90’s Remixes, which are available every week to jazz up your routine. We hear private 2-on-1 and 1-on-1 classes will be rolling out sometime in June too.
Before you head in, stash your belongings in one of the 72 lockers available – including your phones, which aren’t allowed during class.
Freshen up after your sweat sesh
Once you’re done burning up a storm of calories in class, hit the spacious showers for a cool-down – shampoo, conditioner and body wash are all provided to lighten the load in your gym bag.
For ladies, the vanity is stocked with essentials like hairdryers, facial wash, cotton buds, cotton pads, body lotion and a slew of luxurious Skin Inc products. You’ll leave feeling absolutely refreshed.
Stock up on activewear
If you’re on a mission to expand your activewear wardrobe, the studio’s attractive range of merchandise includes sports bras, muscle tanks and leggings made in collaboration with Lululemon. Looking to invest in your own gloves? They’ve got them too.
