It may not be obvious, but my husband and I (a.k.a. The Happy Eaters) come from very health and fitness conscious families.
My brother and sister-in-law took up boxing when it was the craze years back and continued at it long after the hype died down. Given how intertwined boxing has become in their lives, I guess it was inevitable that they would team up with the Elorde group to come up with their own Elorde franchise.
Elorde Southbox officially opened just a few weeks back and also offers muay-thai aside from boxing. For those into cross-fit, you may want to try F.I.T or flash interval training. FIT is cross-fit's first cousin that won't require you to do a handstand on your first session, but is still as intense a workout.
And if the FIT instructor looks familiar, that's because he's my brother in law and I've probably posted his photo, together with my sister, either here or on MomEx a few times in the past.
I had my first boxing session two days ago after almost a decade and I'm surprised that I'm not aching that much all over, considering that the last time I tried boxing, I couldn't get up the following morning. I've already bought my own pair of gloves (purple!) so I'm in this for the long haul.
Anyhoo, Elorde Southbox can be found at Seaside Daang Hari, Muntinlupa. Check out these lovers who spent their Valentine's at Elorde Southbox. The couple that boxes together, stays together?:p
See you in the ring!
