Box­ing con­tin­ues to trend as a work­out and Over­throw Box­ing brings it in all its gritty glory at its head­quar­ters on Bleeker as well as its lo­ca­tion in Wil­liams­burg. With its doors open, at any­time you're see­ing peo­ple en­ter­ing, classes tak­ing place or you could also see Will Smith, Jen­nifer Lopez and even Usher get­ting a work­out in.

In ad­di­tion to be­ing in an iconic area, the very buil­ing it re­sides in was the home of Over­throw Mag­a­zine (which is where the name of this stu­dio comes from) as well as the head­quar­ters for the ac­tivist group, The Yip­pies.

The abil­ity to peek be­hind the cur­tain to see this gym in ac­tion was the ex­act vi­sion that Joey Good­win, founder of Over­throw, had in mind. Think of this stu­dio as Fight Club brought to life in a set­ting with posters and stick­ers on the wall, an up­stairs stu­dio and a red room for smaller classes down­stairs. Of course, there is the cool neon that is show­cased through­out.

Re­gard­less of your skill level, Over­throw is open to all. Classes can be booked on­site as well as on­line. In ad­di­tion, there are themed classes such as Box­ing and Booze which gives you a cold beer post work­out on Mon­days and there are those classes which pro­vide do­na­tions to or­ga­ni­za­tions such as the ACLU and Planned Par­ent­hood on Fri­days. Work­outs are cre­ated by for­mer Golden Gloves Cham­pion, Ali­cia "The Em­press" Napoleon.

Un­like stu­dio fit­ness brands that are known for pre­mium ameni­ties for beauty prod­ucts that can be en­joyed post work­out, Over­throw does not have this. But they do have a line that

is based in the love of box­ing and it was ac­tu­ally cre­ated prior to the launch of the gym as Good­win is an en­tre­pre­neur who has also been in the fash­ion in­dus­try. The line, also known as Over­throw, al­lows you to wear your fight­ing spirit in and out of the ring and has had great ed­i­to­rial pieces that you could wear for a night out.
