Box Party in The Bahamas
Welcome to the ultimate weekend of fitness and fun in The Bahamas! Far from your typical vacation, this retreat will balance energizing boxing workouts with exciting local activities and (optional) nightlife so that you go home feeling better than when you left. And at downtown Nassau’s only beachfront resort, you will find total relaxation during plentiful free time to recharge. Join us on this tropical getaway where we’ll box, dance, swim, dine, and chill with Coach Martin Rios by our side, enjoying everything the island has to offer!
Each day, Coach Martin will lead 1-2 boxing-based workouts with a strong musical foundation to keep you moving and motivated! Classes will have a distinct focus ranging from technique to speed & combinations to conditioning, and more. On the last day we will put it all together with an exciting total-body boxing boot camp on the beach. All levels are encouraged to join (yes, beginners too)! **Bonus: special guest Coach Kayla Mantegazza will lead a yoga for boxers class or two (optional)!
Our retreat includes a unique adventure out on the crystal clear water! We will take a private boat ride to see the sites, enjoy world-class snorkeling and simply sit back and relax. Along the way, we'll sip on rum punch and possibly enjoy an impromptu dance party.
Free time to chill is just as important as our workouts and activities on this retreat. Guests will be staying at downtown Nassau's only beachfront resort, so relaxing on the sand - or at the pool - is a must! Also, there are plenty of shops and restaurants in town to explore and lots of exciting excursions to check out if you'd like!
Grew up with two passions: boxing and dancing. Started dancing at 14 and by 18 was traveling the world as a professional R&B and B-boy dancer. While he traveled, he would train in boxing for two hours and then go to a five-hour dance rehearsal, always staying active and pursuing both loves.
Throughout his professional dancing career, Martin made time for boxing and has an amateur 24-0 record with 2 consecutive championship wins at the prestigious Golden Gloves tournament.
When Martin retired from professional dancing and competing in the ring, he took his love for movement and music to the next level by combining the two and teaching fitness and boxing.
Now a top coach at New York's Work Train Fight boxing gym, Martin teaches group classes, semi-private and private sessions, in addition to coaching fighters, most recently bringing a client/trainer to Madison Square Garden to win the Ringmaster's tournament.
He loves to teach the rhythm of fighting. He know people love to dance and they can pick up boxing easily when tied to a musical beat.
