Sweat Science Boxing provides its members with high-level boxing training and an intense workout, but Coach Mike Smallwood wants to create an upbeat and friendly environment for all who train there — which is precisely what he enjoys about coaching.
“One of the cooler things about working here is that I get the opportunity to help people access this sport in a non-threatening, really welcoming way,” Smallwood says.

At Sweat Science though, it’s all about creating a fun and upbeat environment, while still keeping the hardcore workout as a focal point.
