We've broken down our COVID comeback and safety procedures:



Book your time slot in advance online. You’ll workout on your own heavy bag [say hello to Bishop 2.0].


Each session will be capped at 50% capacity [meaning no more than 16 members at a time]. Each heavy bag is spaced 7 feet apart.



Masks are currently for all staff & clients. Acceptable face coverings include cloth (ex. homemade sewn masks), surgical masks, and N95 respirators that are appropriate for exercise. Bandanas, buffs, and gaiters are not acceptable face coverings while exercising.


Gloves are also required. You may not strike the bag with just hand wraps. We sell custom neoprene bag gloves for $20 in studio. These bag gloves are designed specifically for our heavy bag, are very light weight (3oz.) and are machine-washable.



Your favorite fighters are now our studio safety leads. They’ll be in the studio with you making sure everyone follows NYS regulations, but can also suggest combinations & answer technique questions.




The studio floor is cleaned & disinfected after every session [as always]. Each bag is individually sanitized after every use [as always].



HVAC/ERV Unit: clean, fresh air from outside is drawn in to the studio on a continuous cycle while simultaneously removing stale air. 


HEPA Filters: Hospital-grade HEPA filters have been placed in all heating/cooling systems and HVAC units. These filters capture virus-carrying particles, bacteria and more. 


PERMASAFE: All surfaces have been treated with Permasafe surface and air sanitation system. This provides immediate and perpetual antimicrobial protection. 

A lot of changes, but what’s not changing is: a full-body workout on our patented, low-impact striking bag set to custom playlists with trained, knowledgeable & friendly fighters.
