Empowered, energized, and excited. That’s what you’ll feel the minute you walk through the front doors of 360 punch. This Montreal boxing gym is unlike any other gym out there.
They focus on community-based boxing and functional HIIT classes that are inclusive to every level of fitness.
Made up of a team of professional MMA fighters which include Xavier Alaoui and Matthew Rusniak as well as fitness experts such as Joshua Aaron Goldman, Becky ZT, and more, they’ll have you reaching your health and fitness goals before you know it!
360 Punch Classes
The team at 360 punch offers a total of 6 different classes. Although that might not seem like a lot compared to traditional gyms, it is when you know that they never repeat the same workout twice. That means that you’ll never get bored and you’ll consistently be challenged to grow both physically and mentally.
Their courses include:
Jab with Coach Java
Booty Class with Budwell
What we really love about their courses is that their coaches are actually present. You aren’t just left alone to figure everything out on your own. They make sure to take the time to guide and correct you through each of the exercises that they teach in order to make sure that you get the most out of your workout. That means you get faster results and less injuries than you would in any other traditional gym setting.
If you’re short on time there’s no need to worry because all of the classes that they offer are made up of a 15 minute warm-up, a half-hour long intense training, and a 15 minute cool down. That means that you can be in and out of the gym faster than ever. To learn more about their group classes simply click here.
If group classes aren’t your thing, but you’re still looking to take your fitness game to the next level, you can also train privately with any of their expertly trained coaches which you can learn more about by reading below.
For those that are simply looking for a space to workout out in, 360 punch is about as good as it gets. They’ve got all the equipment that you could ever want and if they don’t have what you’re looking for, they’ll literally go out and get it for you.
The PUNCH ZONE
If you’re looking for a unique training experience that you can’t find in any other gym, the PUNCH ZONE is the perfect fit for you. Made up of 16 patented shock-absorbent Rinkcage® punching bags that hang across a one of a kind PlatinumRig® Octagon creation. You can reserve one of their bags for yourself or you can reserve two for you to enjoy with a friend or family member.
The team at 360 punch didn’t want to be like every other gym out there. They knew that in order to be different from everyone else, they’d have to do something that no other gym had taken the time to do. They put themselves into their customer's shoes.
Although you’d think that most gyms would take the time to understand things from their customer's point of view, most only scratch the surface. The team at 360 punch spent about 6 months of in-depth market research to truly understand what works and what doesn’t in a gym setting.
They participated in classes from some of the most well-known gyms to the underground and completely unknown ones. They would purposely make mistakes to see how the coaches would respond and a majority of the time the coaches wouldn’t notice or wouldn’t say anything at all. They felt lucky to even get a good job! every once in a while.
At 360 Punch, they believe that if you pay for a class, you deserve to have the full attention of your coach. Yes, it’s important to hear that you’re doing a good job, but it’s equally as important to know when to make adjustments. You shouldn’t risk injuring yourself because a coach isn’t fully present. At 360 Punch their team of coaches go above and beyond to make sure that you get the most out of your workout.
Because they know that price is often a huge deciding factor when signing up to a gym, they've made sure to have some of the most competitive prices out there. On top of that, the price you pay when you sign up is the price you’ll always pay. That means that even if the cost of the monthly subscription goes up, it won’t go up for you.
No more yearly subscriptions either because monthly memberships are the way to go. Having a monthly membership means that if you need to cancel or pause your membership at any time, you can no questions asked.
The 360 Punch Team
Get ready to have all of your questions answered by their powerhouse team of fitness experts. Made up of three founders and a handful of other wellness warriors, they'll have you feeling like a pro athlete before you know it.
The first of three co-founders is coach Josh. When 360 Punch was in its infancy, he knew that he didn’t want to build just another gym - he wanted to build a home. After visiting 360 Punch, we can confirm that he’s achieved his goal. You can feel the love that has been put into every aspect of the gym. Not only is he a coach, he’s also one of the key players in all that goes on in this big-hearted community.
He’s a passionate, empathetic, hard-working entrepreneur, and a visionary that’s on a mission to help change the health and wellness industry for the better. He has a total of 18 different health and fitness-related certifications and he hopes to have even more in the near future.
Coach Xavier, who’s another one of 360 Punch’s co-founders, is an international world-class VIP professional trainer. That essentially means that he’s so highly in demand that people literally pay for him to travel around the world to have the opportunity to train with him. He’s a world-class professional MMA fighter and he’s got a BFA to boot.
360 Punch’s third co-founder is coach Matt. He’s got over 12 years of experience working in the fitness and nutrition industry. He’s been a professional MMA fighter since 2014 and he also has a bachelor's degree in Commerce.
Coach Becky is a certified massage therapist, nutrition and wellness coach, a reiki energy healer as well as a personal trainer. Like coach josh, she’s got a list of certificates and licenses so long she could literally open up her own health and wellness school.
These are just some of the coaches at 360 Punch, to see the full list of their coaches simply click here.
What else makes 360 punch different from other gyms?
On top of everything that we’ve already mentioned, one of the things that we really love about 360 punch is that there are no mirrors to be found anywhere outside of the locker rooms. To those that are used to going to a regular gym, this might seem a little bit strange, but it was done with the intention of making yet another positive change.
No mirrors = No comparison
With their team of ever-present coaches there to support you, we promise that you won’t even notice that there aren’t any mirrors around. No mirrors means a few things. One, you’ll be able to focus more, and two, you’ll be less likely to compare yourself to others.
360 punch provides you with all the tools you need in order to recharge, refuel, recover, reconnect, and release. How do they do that?
Charging stations for phones and tablets
Grab n’ Go superfood meals & snacks
All the latest recovery methods & technology
A private massage room and a certified massage therapist
If you’re looking to disconnect from your phone and instead connect with those around you, this is the perfect gym for you. At 360 punch it’s less about showing off and more about sharing. It’s not about competing against one another, it’s about helping one another to become our best selves. From start to finish they’ve thought of literally everything to help you get the most out of your workout.
As if their gym wasn’t amazing enough already, we learned that they’ve got big plans in store for the 360 punch family. This year they’re going to be making some really big changes which include:
A grab n go healthy snack bar
A chill zone
An extension that will include a fully operational octagon
A collaboration with another well-known gym
Whether you’re just arriving or you’re on way out, their new grab and go healthy snack bar will help you to refuel your body like never before. Filled with the same healthy meals and snacks that they currently carry and so much more, eating healthy will be as easy as can be.
Their chill zone and terrace will be the perfect spots to relax after a long week's work. Their extension will include a fully operational octagon where you can feel like a pro fighter even if you’re just getting started. They'll also be offering online classes for those that prefer to workout at home.
Although we can’t reveal all the details yet, 360 Punch told us that they hope to collaborate with another very well known gym within the next year. All we can say is that if this collaboration works out, it will be huge.
So now that we know all that there is to know about 360 Punch, let’s take a look at what their customers are saying.
"Amazing gym, the coaches are outstanding, smart, and super motivating. The workouts are quick and efficient which is amazing for someone who’s always on the go does not have hours to spend in a gym. After my first week I lost 5 pounds and my resting heart rate decreased by 10bpm."
"What an amazing facility! The whole concept is very unique. What makes this even better is the fact that I can have a workout in 30min and I’m dripping in sweat! The best part by far are the amazing coaches, whom motivate you day in and day out! Highly recommend to anyone seeking a new twist on going to the gym!"
"Love their ever changing workouts. The coaches are more than qualified to teach everyone from beginner to athlete, children to seniors. They are professionals with a love for what they do and it shows up in their training. A wonderful Community experience. I’ve seen so many members with different abilities striving for and actually achieving their personal goals. Great music and so many unexpected perks to being a member. #punchfam"
