Fort Smith youngsters are getting a taste of the ring at a new boxing class launched at the community’s recreation centre.
Around 15 youth have signed up and are throwing punches in the biweekly class, led by recreation coordinator Cynthia White.
White’s no-nonsense approach to her class had the youth working up a sweat two weeks ago. Drop your hands or goof off and it was 10 push-ups or burpees for the budding boxers.
The class started out doing stretches and cardio, then moved on to practicing jabs and blocks, all leading up to the punching bags.
To sign up for the class or for more information, contact the recreation centre by calling (867) 872-4732.
