Technique & Fitness
Sting Gym Kickboxing classes are designed to introduce members to the fundamentals of Full Contact Kickboxing and Muay Thai & Boxing while providing an exciting, high energy workout.
It has been proven that the best way to increase lean muscle mass, flexibility cardiovascular health and decrease unwanted body fat in a limited amount of time is by interval training. This is done by doing low resistance, intense cardio work in a short period of time (2-3 minute rounds) then slowing the heart rate down by doing a higher resistance exercise (1 minute rest period.) This allows everyone regardless of fitness or skill level to get their heart rate up at a level that is ideal for them to improve their overall ability to perform then drop it back down and improve recovery time. All classes at Sting Gym use the interval training concept. At Sting Gym light to moderate contact is applied to ensure the effectiveness and integrity of the drills. This is the introductory part of fighting in competition, where students develop confidence and self-defence abilities.
Sting Gym Team has a Legacy of training professional fighters for over twenty years. Our instructors and students have competed on the state, national and international arena and featured in the K-1 & IKBF. Whether you want to fight competitively, learn to defend yourself or just train to get in shape, you will find that training alongside and by our professional fighters will get you the best results and more wins under your belt than other less established programs locally available.
Sting Gym Kickboxing has cultivated a winning atmosphere to showcase our talent all across Australia. Look for our next Sting Gym and Fightforce Promotion and see for yourself that we are the real deal when it comes to Kickboxing, Muay Thai and Boxing.

Prestige Gym – Bayside Boxing Gym Classes Melbourne
0416 522 744
Born from a desire to create an authentic fight gym in Melbourne’s CBD, Prestige Gym opened its doors in October 2013. Situated on King Street, two minutes from Southern Cross Station, Prestige is unlike any other city-based Melbourne boxing gym.
Head trainer, Predrag Galic’s intention, was to open a training facility orientated towards fighters and not neglect the general public who want to enjoy the sport without competing. Specialising in the striking arts of boxing, Muay Thai and kickboxing, two decades of experience in martial arts has seen him develop a unique approach.
Believing that the right program comes from experience, Predrag has trained with some of the world’s best coaches from many different backgrounds. Having competed as a fighter for many years in boxing, Thai Boxing and kickboxing, Predrag developed the Prestige program from a combination of old-school training styles integrated with new methods and sports science.
Prestige Gym is open to the general public. Members are introduced to combat sports, thus finding out whether or not it is suited for them. Our intention is that people can first (without pressure) get a feel for the sport of their choice and begin to understand it. If they like it and want to take the next step, they’ll have the opportunity to do so. This will happen through the correct program and guidance from an experienced coach, who likewise has been guided through his career by skilled professionals* with the intention of reaching the highest possible level.
The Prestige method is built around the concept of strong foundations. We find that when a prospect starts in the wrong way, it generally takes longer to guide them back on to a successful path. That is why you will find a strong emphasis on the fundamentals at Prestige gym, a dedicated Melbourne boxing gym that specialises in boxing, Muay Thai and kickboxing.
Before the boxing sport, Muay Thai and kickboxing were recently commercialised in the last couple of decades, and gyms used to be the place where fighters of different skill levels (beginners to seasoned professionals) were preparing for fights. Skills were shared and passed on from generation to generation. Only coaches with extensive fight background and experience at high levels of competition were in charge of training. This is still the case at Prestige Gym Melbourne.

Boxing Gyms: What to Expect
There are two types of boxing training: Training that focuses on teaching boxers to compete in the ring, and training that focuses on helping “everyday athletes” get in better shape. Some gyms offer both types of training.
The basic difference between the two forms of training is that athletes who want to learn how to compete in boxing must learn to land and take punches with human opponents. They have to learn to hit and be hit by a competitor. Gyms that teach boxers to compete typically have boxing rings in their facilities and offer opportunities for boxers to fight one another.
If you have no interest in taking a punch (I know I don’t), you’ll want to look for facilities that offer classes and programs outside of the ring. The basic skills are the same – you learn to jab, uppercut, and hook; you work on footwork and speed, core strength and agility, and power and flexibility. In some cases, depending on the facility, you’ll also learn MMA-style (mixed martial arts) kicking sequences.
With today’s fitness-friendly boxing clubs, the good news is just about anyone can walk in and get started, regardless of baseline fitness. Because most boxing classes focus on bodyweight exercises, you can go at your own pace and ramp up the intensity only as you see fit. A membership at a gym like 9Round (which is quite possibly the most “average person-friendly” boxing gym around) costs about $50 per month. It includes unlimited sessions, a pair of boxing gloves and hand wraps, plus trainer-led workouts at every session.
If you don’t have a 9Round or TITLE Boxing Gym in your area, just search for local boxing gyms and check their websites for fitness training classes. Call the facility and ask if you can try a class for free, or at least watch a class before you join in. The facility you attend should be welcoming. Classified trainers should be held (preferably with a certification or experience specifically in boxing), and the facility should be clean and well-maintained.
Boxing at Home
If you like to exercise without a gym membership, you can also set up your boxing workout at home – but you need to purchase some equipment to get started. It’s a good idea to buy a 70- to 100-pound bag (a long, cylindrical bag that can be hung from a stand or a sturdy ceiling beam), boxing gloves, a medicine ball, and a jump rope. These four items combined enable you to run through boxing sequences, cardio sequences, and strength training sequences to put together a full home workout.
If I had a boxing gym within a 15-minute drive of my house, I’d sign up in a heartbeat. Boxing is one of the most effective, concise ways to get in shape and maintain your physical health, and it’s a lot of fun too. I plan to buy a heavy bag and some boxing gloves soon, just so I can incorporate boxing into my standard home workout.
If you want to do the same, my best piece of advice is to take a few classes at a gym before you transition to exercising at home. Working with a trainer can provide you with a good series of exercises and the safety skills necessary to maintain a home boxing workout.
