Women's Boxing

One of a Kind Women's Boxing in Austin

Many workout routines can improve cardiovascular performance, increase strength, lower stress and help you lose weight. But boxing with Austin Boxing Babes gives you more than just a physical challenge.

You don’t just show up here to hit a bag for an hour. We teach you how to move like a boxer, how to throw combos, and more. Building your skills through disciplined training is personally rewarding and will build your confidence inside the ring and in your personal life. 

We train in real Olympic-style boxing with all women coaches in a safe and supportive environment for women…and by the way NO you don’t need to get hit to work out here!

If you’re ready to check us out, come try one of our beginner workshops that we hold twice a month. You’ll quickly understand what separates us from other workout classes.

How Our Classes Work

Each week, our boxers focus on a different skill like footwork, jabs, or defense. We have a roughly 4 month cycle where each week is a different skill focus. 

Your USA Boxing Certified instructors will take you through:

  • Dynamic warmup
  • Drills related to the week’s skill focus
  • Bag work (speed bag, heavy bag, double end bag)
  • Partner drills (parrying, blocking, defense)
  • Boxing conditioning  
  • Cool down and stretch

We have frequent classes throughout the week, including the morning and middle of the day. See our schedule to find out more about class times. 

With our small class sizes (capped at 20) and great instructors, we can give individual feedback and coaching. We also use a ranking system to pair you up with partners at a similar level.

Supportive Community of Women

Talk to our members and you’ll hear this a lot: there’s just no other workout in Austin quite like this. You’ll realize they’re not just talking about the workout, they’re talking about the culture here. Our Boxing Babes push each other and help each other through drills. Several have even risen through the ranks and now have become instructors. There’s a sense of community, of shared struggle and shared achievement. The “Babes” are really what make Austin Boxing Babes what it is.

Competitive Boxing Team

Although most of our members do not box competitively, we have a small group of women who do compete locally. Several more members train with the team and spar during advanced sessions, but do not compete. 

We have had numerous local champions. Many had never started boxing before showing up at our classes.
