Founded by Golden Gloves Flyweight Novice Champion Anne Vitiello, Boxing for Poets is a hybrid workout that combines all the elements of boxing (sans the center ring) with yoga and a mind-body emphasis. Vitiello describes it as a “Western version of martial arts, with an element of boot camp.” Clients choose from one-on-one workouts or larger group sessions. Don’t be fooled by the “poets” part: Workouts are tough, and students train interval-style, using the three-minute timing of boxing rounds — and jump rope longer than you ever thought possible. For many, it opens the creative floodgates and facilitates the artistic process, which is why Vitiello counts writers, designers, and even a professional opera singer among her poetically minded clients.
