Win a free one month membership to LA Boxing!

So, you wanna win a free month’s membership to LA Boxing?


I’m currently partnering with LA Boxing and have been REALLY impressed with the awesome workouts I’m getting there. Not only is kickboxing a major calorie burner and stress reliever, but it’s fun, too!


The lucky winner of this contest will receive:

  • One month free membership to the LA Boxing D.C. area location of their choice
  • One free pair of wraps ($12 value)
  • Free use of rental gloves during the month

Woohoo! Sadly, as you’ll note above, this contest is ONLY open to those living in the greater D.C. area (or willing to travel to one of the following LA Boxing gyms: Arlington, Alexandria, Columbia, Rockville, or Georgetown). Their gyms are franchised and it would be too complicated to do a nationwide giveaway, unfortunately.

How to enter!

There are three ways to enter to win; each way will give you an additional entry, so you can do one, two, or all three!

Here are your entry options:

  1. Leave a comment telling me why you want to try LA Boxing!  
  2. Tweet about this contest on Twitter (include a link to this post and @fannetasticfood), and then leave another comment telling me you tweeted.
  3. If you have a blog, mention and link back to this contest in one of your posts, and then leave another comment letting me know you posted about it.

Please only enter this contest if you are in the D.C. area and can travel to one of the area gyms noted above for your free month! The contest will run until next Tuesday, May 25th at 5:00 p.m. EST, when I’ll randomly select and announce the winner!

Good luck!! :) 


  1. 1

    I want to win because I’ve heard about LA Boxing on the radio before- but YOUR posts have been the final push for me to learn more about it! I love your posts about your own LA Boxing experiences and want to try it out myself :o)

  2. 2

    Since I live in one of the above mentioned cities, I’d love to try LA Boxing! My gym membership ends next week so I’ve been thinking about what to do next. Though I love my pilates classes & running, I think trying to mix up my workouts with kickboxing or boxing would bring it up a notch!

    I just posted this giveaway on Twitter here:

    I’d love to try LA boxing so that I could finally get into the shape that I want to be in. I’ve tried everything from running to biking to weights, and just haven’t seen the results. I think trying something new would help! :) Great give-a-way!

    I live near Georgetown, and I would love to go to LA Boxing–I need to try a new workout for spring!

  6. 6

    I’d LOVE to win this one month membership! I’ve always wanted to try it and the Alexandria location is really close to me!

  7. 7

    I live near the Georgetown location–looks like a great cross training option in addition to running!

  8. 8

    I’m totally scared of the most recent a$$ kicking you recieved – but would like to give it a go! I’m super close Arlington and Alexandria :)

  9. 9

    I’d love to try out a gym like this! So far I’ve only been to “traditional” gyms. I need a change of pace!

    I’d love to try a boxing class! The Arlington location is right up the street from me :)

  11. 11

    I’d love to win because after living in Asia for the past 1/2 year, I am returning to the DC area and am in search of a gym to join. A month at LA Boxing would be a great chance to see what its all about and learn some self defense moves while I’m at it!

  12. 12

    There’s an LA Boxing in Foggy Bottom near my office and it seems like a lot of these workouts would be a great way to get back into a workout routine after breaking my foot early this spring! As weird as it sounds, I <3 a$$ kickings at the gym!

  13. 13

    WooHoo! I would love to try LA Boxing out! I miss being on a team where the coach/trainer kicks my butt. AND I am close to the Columbia gym.

  14. 14

    OMG Anne this is a kick-a$$ giveaway, and I would LOVE to win this because your routine looks so fiery and I would love to try it for myself!! Thanks for the giveaway!! :)

  15. 15

    Yes!! I would love to try LA Boxing and release some of my inner rage. Just kidding, but it does look like an awesome workout and I’m looking for new things to try besides running!

  16. 16

    I haven’t belonged to a gym in years, perhaps it’s time to expand my workouts. Aaaaand I’m considering joining twitter so I can enter again!

  17. 17

    I work in Georgetown and with the stressful days I’ve been having at work, I could really use some boxing classes afterwards!

    I want to try LA Boxing because reading your posts make my muscles hurt–in a good way! I live in Fairlington (South Arlington) and would LOVE the opportunity to try out the gym :) Thanks for the chance to win!

    oh, and, am I thinking about this radio ad correctly? The one where Sarah from 99.5 says “Bizzzzzzzznesssss”!?

  19. 21

    I would LOVE to give LA boxing a try! :-)

  20. 22

    Since moving to Arlington from the Pittsburgh area, I have yet to find a gym where I feel like I’m having fun and not begrudgingly making it through my daily workout. I would LOVE to try out L.A. Boxing! It sounds like just the right amount of fun and fitness to make it a knock-out *pun intended* workout!

  21. 24

    I have always wanted to try kickboxing! It seems like a great stress relief!

  22. 25

    I’ve been following your LA Boxing posts carefully. I’m in the DC area and have been considering giving the place a try but, I’ve gotta admit, I’m scared! The workouts look REALLY tough. A month free-membership might be just the push I need to get over my fear and get my butt in there!

  23. 26

    I recently moved to DC, and have been trying to find a new place to work out. LA boxing seems like a great place to have fun and get in shape!

    Danielle says:

    I live around the corner from the Alexandria location and have been too nervous to try it, but this would give me the motivation to!

  25. 28

    Ok, I looooove boxing/kickboxing. And I clearly need a kick in the pants to ramp up my exercising regime again, but I am poor and can not afford to join right now since I’m stuck in another gym membership until the fall. A month trial would be a perfect way for me to test it out before I’d consider switching gyms in the fall. PICK ME!!

  26. 29

    I want to try LA boxing because I need someone to kick my butt to lose a few pounds before my wedding partay!

    Deirdre says:

    I went to one free trial class at LA Boxing and it was amazing! I would love a free month to try it out on a long term basis. It was an incredible work out and with my wedding 9 months away, it would help me get the wedding arms and back I so want!!

  28. 31

    Posted on my blog…

  29. 32

    Aaaaaaaaaaand tweeted! Can you tell I really want this? :-P

  30. 33

    I’m totally obsessed with la boxing. Jerome is an awesome trainer (Paul S always manages to crush me in every training class too). I would love a free month of membership!

    Love reading these updates. Thanks Anne!

  31. 34

    Hi Anne!
    On Friday morning I found a note saying “I know where you work”. I need LA BOXING training to help protect me from my stalker. :)

  32. 35

    a friend and i are psyched to get our free session in next week hopefully in georgetown – looks like so much fun! i belonged to a local gym when i lived in seattle and its seriously the best workout and a ridiculous amount of fun.

    keep up the updates!

  33. 36

    I want to try LA Boxing because I live down the street from the one in Old Town, and I’ve missed my regular, real boxing class that I gave up 5 years ago to go to graduate school :)

  34. 37
    Colleen says:

    I’ve been learning some boxing moves from my trainer at Bally’s, and I would love to learn even more at LA Boxing! I live a few blocks from the Rockville location. I’d love to be able to check it out for a month!

  35. 38

    I want to try it!!!

  36. 39

    I’m in the area–and your workouts look so intense… I’m definitely intrigued! :)

  37. 40

    Ooh, ooh! I’m in Baltimore, but I WILL make this drive! Looks like a killer workout!

  38. 41

    I am dying to try boxing – looks like an awesome workout! And there is an LA Boxing right down the street!

  39. 42

    Also, I tweeted about this! LA Boxing hurrah!

  40. 43

    Eek! I would love to win this! My office just moved to Ballston, and I could use some local motivation / butt-kicking! You make it look so fun & intense!

  41. 44

    I would LOVE to win this!!! I am right near the G-town one!

  42. 45

    I would love to try a new gym… I have been a member of Gold’s but have been unsatisfied… need something new!

  43. 46

    I have absolutely loved reading about your experience at LA Boxing — I recently left Washington Sports Club (dont get me started…) and am looking for a new gym to join in the area. This would be a great time to try something new.

    Erica H. says:

    I’ve been looking to change up my workout routine, and I live about two miles from Gtown! Perfect! I can run there and back and be done with my workout before breakfast :)

  45. 48

    I’m getting married in 6 months and all the running is not helping me look better in that dress (who cares if my legs look nice if I’m wearing a long dress?).

    I NEED this. Even though I looked at your pictures and thought “thank god it’s not me”

  46. 49

    I would love this opportunity! I committed to the Weight Watchers program in August and have since lost 20 pounds using the program and cardio-training. Unfortunately over the past few months I have hit a plateau with the weight loss due to the death of my mother and the fact that my body has hit a plateau. I am not sure what to do. I think LA Boxing would really help me refocus and get back on track. I live right down the block from the Alexandria location and always drive by and think what a great program it looks like! Such a great thing you are doing. Good luck to whoever wins…hope its me!

  47. 50

    I tried a free class at LA boxing but my budget can’t handle a monthly membership right now. I would be so pumped to win a free one!!

  48. 51

    I have been desperately looking for a new gym and this one looks like a perfect fit! Great giveaway!

    Caroline says:

    Ahh I was wondering if they were going to do something like this with you! I just graduated from George Mason University and lost my gym membership so I’m trying to find a new routine! They look like they really kick your butt and I need that right now lol

  51. 54

    I’ve been wanting to try LA Boxing for SO long! I took a boxing class at college and LOVED it. I’m super competitive and think this would be the perfect fit for me :)

    Christina V. says:

    I would LOVE a one month membership to LA boxing for several reasons. Not only do I hear about their 1000calorie/hour burner class but looking at your posts is SO motivating. I’ve always been tiny but no in shape whatsoever. Seeing how motivated and in shape you are is truly an inspiration. Thanks, Anne!!!

  53. 56

    Oh man, I love crazy hard workouts like that. I want to try the LA Boxing way!

  54. 57

    I have always wanted to try boxing! I really loved the Rocky movies when I was growing up: I used to watch them to pump me up for swim meets :-)

  55. 58

    Ahhhh I’d LOVE to win this! I just finished training for my first half marathon, and while it was a lot of fun, I definitely need to switch it up from running for a while. The workouts I’ve seen on your blog from LA Boxing look ridiculously tiring but at least still fun!

  56. 59
  57. 60

    My workout routine has gotten boring, so this would be a great way to spice it up!

    Jen Robinson says:

    Maybe i’d get super buff if i did the LA Boxing thing like you- i bet that you could kick my butt right now!

  59. 62
    Danielle says:

    I’d like to try something new and keep on seeing their signs on the metro!

  60. 63

    I would love to win a membership because I’m super petite and really want to get stronger. I run, but boxing seems like an amazing way to get myself into butt-kicking shape, and just feel tougher overall! :)

  61. 64

    I wanna try boxing because…well, I’ve never tried it before!! I am also in a major workout rut and need something to spice up my fitness routine (or lack thereof!). I live in the DC area too so why not?
