The Club by George Foreman III Finally Opens
By now, you’ve seen the renderings, read about the group fitness options, and even know how Foreman’s world champ father got into the grilling business. Now, finally, people who live in the ever-expanding Fort Point neighborhood have a place to work out. (Channel Fitness unceremoniously closed a few months ago. And while there’s a lot of great options close by in Southie and the Seaport District, when it comes to Fort Point proper, Foreman is it.)
The Club by George Foreman III is a 15,000 square foot luxury gym that offers spa-like locker rooms with sauna and steam rooms; an on-site juice and coffee bar; boxing rings and heavy bags; and a full line of cardio and strength training equipment. Classes include: Box-FIIT (Fight-Intensity-Interval-Training), Fighter’s Cycle (Spinning), Fighter’s Yoga, Fighter’s Core, and Fighter’s Pilates. Foreman will be at the club six days a week to train clients along with the 15 trainers he personally hired.
What is Box-FIIT? It’s a patented training regimen that was inspired by Foreman’s years of training as a professional fighter. The workout incorporates 10 stations that will include things like rowing, cycling, ab work, boxing, jumping rope, suspension training, kettlebells, and “Fight Ropes.” The workout is two minutes per station with a one minute rest in between and will change weekly.
“Box-FIIT is not just a workout, it’s a philosophy. Our primary goal as trainers is to provide the undeniable physical and emotional gains by using the same hands-on approach used by boxing trainers to get their fighters in shape, but in a mainstream fitness club,” Foreman says. “At heart, we are a boutique, boxing-themed gym, but we also have [the usual upscale gym equipment].”
