A new West Hollywood boutique boxing studio, mindfulnes­s in Studio City and a fundraiser at the Grove. Here’s a look at wellness news around Los Angeles.

Pack a punch

Open since early October, Crubox focuses on 50-minute high-intensity group boxing classes. Participan­ts work on and off with a heavy bag for an all-body workout that is aimed to burn between 600 and 800 calories. Expect to follow sets based on boxing moves that are designed to work the core. Classes are for all levels and hold up to 24 people. Boxing gloves are provided.

Info: First-timers pay $30 for the first two classes; subsequent single classes are $30. Packages available. 8453 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood; (323) 917-5026, www.cruboxing.com

Adding a Den

Since it opened last year, the Den Meditation Studio on La Brea Avenue and 4th Street has drawn a steady stream of yoga and mindfulnes­s buffs to its all-day classes. Owner Tal Rabinowitz has just opened a new Den in Studio City. The 2,000-square-foot space features an interior made from reclaimed wood and brick; guests can help themselves to the generous tea and coffee bar, and lounge in a reading corner stacked with motivation­al and inspiring books. Classes include a “Lunchtime Detox” or an end-of-day “Happiness” session.

Info: $23 per class. Packages available. New customers can pay $50 for 21 days of classes, plus three special workshops. 12323 Ventura Blvd.; (818) 856-8303. denmeditat­ion.com
