Spokane Boxing Gym starting new girls boxing class in September

SPOKANE, Wash. — The Spokane Boxing Gym is safely open under Phase 2 and starting up a new class.

Next month, young girls can take a boxing class made just for them — and it’s about more than just the sport.

The girls class starting up next month will be for girls ages 4 to 17 years old.

It will focus on basic skills in hopes of building confidence, instilling pride in their abilities and it’s a way to support girls in the community.

Classes will be held starting Thursday, Sept. 17 at 5:30 p.m. and will take place every Thursday at 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 9 a.m.

Nicole Branstetter is the instructor and the one who came up with the idea.


She says girls will learn basic moves, cardio, bag work and technical boxing.

Branstetter got into boxing a few years ago and hopes girls feel empowered by the class.

You can sign up by emailing her at nbranstetterboxing@gmail.com.
