Boxing at the downtown y

Adult boxing offers a comprehensive exercise routine that emphasizes core strength. Run by Syracuse Friends of Boxing and its volunteer director, Tom Coulter, the program instills self-discipline and promotes safe boxing techniques. After significant preparation, dedicated participants are introduced to sparring. Coulter is a former U.S. Olympic and Pan American coach who travels the world offering clinics on coaching amateur boxing. His program, which has produced more than 20 world-level amateur boxers, came to the Downtown Y in 2000. It is available to YMCA members at no additional cost.

Boxing classes are held 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.
