What do you get when you apply boutique fitness’ glossy aesthetic to boxing? A space that’s bright and airy, with a state-of-the-art sound system and a white-and-blue color scheme that’s a far cry from the sport’s typically grittier vibes. You might also make the intimidating workout more approachable.
We’ll find out when Shadowbox, the first of the swanky, New York-based boxing studios (think Rumble, Hit House, Overthrow), arrives in the Knox-Henderson neighborhood in 2020, part of the brand’s expansion into four new cities (Los Angeles, Austin, and Chicago are the other chosen ones). Which seems like a long way off, but then again, Shadowbox has been a long time coming.
The studio first announced a Dallas location last summer, and has since stayed pretty quiet about the when and where of it all, prompting serious concern from a friend who recently moved to Dallas from New York. (She can’t believe we don’t have any of the aforementioned boxing studios, and honestly, neither can I.)
