Type: Boxing gym Description:

When women want to get in shape, they come to Jason Morales, who runs a Ladies Boxercise class five times a week at Heavy Hitters in Bohemia with his partner, Miguel Osorio. In this boot-camp-style program, ladies are put through a rigorous 80-minute boxing regimen.

"Sometimes, women go to gyms, walking from machine to machine, and get nothing out of it," says Morales. From a 10-minute jump-rope warm-up, the program moves into a 20-minute abdominal session followed by a 30-minute cardio routine. Then come the hand mitts and heavy bags.
