Punch It Up

Work your way to a better body at a pro boxer’s new gym.

|

The last time we saw local boxer DaVarryl Williamson, it was early 2006 and he was preparing for the biggest fight of his life—the heavyweight championship of the world (“A Touch of Sleep,” February 2006 issue of 5280). It was a fight he lost, but today Williamson has poured his talent and discipline into something else: a new gym in Englewood, dedicated to the everyman. Whether you’re a box-for-the-fun-of-it amateur, a new mom trying to get back to “fighting weight,” or a teenager in need of some structure, Williamson’s hardcore studio, Touch ’Em Up Boxing (www.tosboxing.com), will whip you into shape without machines, weights, or Pilates. Each class is just $10, so no excuses. Plus, the last half of each session is inside the ring with Williamson—gloves on, hands up, workout-ready. Below, Williamson’s top moves for trimming your physique this spring.
