Women’s Boxing Studio Now Open

The Hook, an ultimate fitness experience for women, opened its first location in December. 

The Hook provides women with a transformative experience in classes that utilize the most state-of-the-art equipment. Their goal is to help women develop a mindset of success in a safe, supportive, community environment. “The strongest women lift one another.” The Hook, an oasis in our hectic lives, was created by visionary and successful working mom Madeline Ricci.

Classes appeal to women of all ages and stages by offering a circuit training experience including boxing for fitness, cardio and strength training. Heart rate monitors are worn by all members to track their level of exertion, allowing them to learn how to maximize their effort. The Hook cares about your journey to success, so they send you feedback via email for each class.

Walk through the doors and experience a clean, sleek reception area that offers boutique shopping. A step through the double doors reveals the workout space with eight BoxMasters and the Queenax. The BoxMaster is a tower with 12 perfectly positioned striking pads to accommodate a variety of specific punches. The Queenax can only be described as a jungle gym for adults. Here, members will perform a dynamic variety of suspended body weight and functional training exercises led by certified instructors.

The Hook is located at 2140 Hall Johnson Road, Grapevine. For more information or to sign up for classes, download the app, The Hook TX, visit TheHookBoxingStudio.com or call 817.854.4665 (HOOK).
