Keep Up Your New Year’s Resolution With This Workout

The gifts are unwrapped, the holiday get-togethers are finally over and the New Year’s Eve festivities produced lots of great stories—now it’s time to get into the swing of 2020! With the hectic holiday season behind us, many of us are likely buckling down on the fitness front finally, getting back to the gym after some lazy days off and back to eating right after a few weeks of festive fun. While there are plenty of ways to get fitness focused at your The Isle apartment—including our state-of-the-art fitness center—if you want a little extra push in the right direction from a structured, instructor-led workout, there are lots of ways to do that right near home.

One such outlet is Joltin’ Jabs, a full boxing fitness gym located in the heart of Manayunk’s Main Street, less than one block from your The Isle apartment. The studio was started by local boxing pro Joey DeMalavez, who shares his decades of professional boxing experience with locals looking to get fit, burn some stress or just try their hands (and fee!) at an exciting new physical challenge. 

The gym features eight classes a day that combine strength, agility and cardio training (get ready for 240 jumping jacks in each class!). The 50-minute sessions are designed to introduce you to the basics of boxing—no experience necessary!—while also providing a great workout and arming you with some important self-defense strategies. 

With classes held throughout the day, you can squeeze in a workout before work to jumpstart your day or unwind and destress after a long day at the office. And since the gym is so close to your The Isle apartment, there’s no excuse not to check it out!

So lace up your sneakers and get ready to conquer your resolutions in 2020!
