It’s time to start fresh: Get your September Shred on at Anarchy Fitness

Have those cheeky winter layers crept on? Spring is just around the corner, so it’s time to get back into a sweaty routine.

If you’re anything like me, the cold months have been a workout rotation of hibernating inside with a bottle of red, a cheese platter and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on repeat. Now, the fine weather is heading our way and this means the beach, tank tops and Speedos –  it’s time to get my September Shred on.

What better way to get the heart rate pumping and take out my frustrations than with a boxing class at Anarchy Fitness. Set underneath City Holden in West Perth, Anarchy is the brainchild of Renae Wauhop and Glen Austin. The space offers HIIT and Boxing sessions and is complete with a boxing ring to boot.

Anarchy is where you go to when you are looking for a serious sweat session. Glen takes me into the ring with a set of gloves and pads and begins to walk me through some of the basics that will be drilling in class today. As a recently retired boxer, the philosophy behind their style of boxing is just that. Teach someone to box.

We have all been to those boxercise classes where the trainer leaves you doing hooks, or uppercuts for 30 seconds with little to no thought in a combination. Anarchy not only gets you sweating and moving, but the drills get your brain fired up.

There are no egos or attitude at Anarchy and though I’m clearly the “new guy” in the group, I’m quickly partnered with Dave, an experienced boxer, who has no problems guiding me through the fast-paced class. As I translate through the drills and move into punches and combinations, I found a flow and rhythm, all while dodging jabs and counter punches.

After the hour of work on the pads, bags and even some abs, I am about ready to fall on the floor from a great workout. I’m drenched in sweat. Without a doubt, this class is the best way to get back into the swing of things and ready for summer. So, put down the cheese platter, step back in the ring and get a little Anarchy in your routine.
