UBX Media City
UBX Media City is a new boxing fitness gym at Salford Quays offering small group sessions that pack a punch. It’s part of a franchise that has 90 gyms in Australia and New Zealand; this is one of the first to open in the UK.
Each UBX session is made up of 12 three-minute rounds which mix strength training with boxing on the bags and pads. Only 12 people can train at once, meaning you get plenty of one-on-one time with the coach who’s always on hand to keep you motivated and keep your form and technique on track.
It should take about 45 minutes to complete the 12 rounds, but don’t be put off if you can’t handle a full circuit in one go; you can rest or drop out whenever you choose. (You can even turn up halfway through a session; just jump in when the next three-minute round starts).
As well as the classes, there’s regular workshops, club challenges and social events. Book in for a free first session to find out if UBX is for you before you commit to a full month’s membership.
