PGB is contagious and it sounds likes something you don’t want your doctor to tell you that you have, but there’s no need to worry. PGB is Pink Gloves Boxing. Tuesday was the first day for PGB at the Wilmington Athletic Club, the first club to bring PGB to the Port City. General Manager Charlie Hauser is not surprised the women are enjoying it, but their intensity level did catch him off guard. Hauser said “I am surprised as to how hard they’re hitting that mitt. I may have to put a warning out to some of the husbands and significant others that are related to this crowd. WWAY’s John Rendleman chimed in. “Did you hear that husbands? Charlie is giving you fair warning!”
PGB is a womebn’s only fitness class. It’s structured after the martial arts belt system in the sense that you work your way up the ladder to earn pink gloves. Wilmington resident Wendy Rhodes loved her first experience. “I was hooked after ten minutes. I think it will be great.”
Katie Meyers is PGB trainer. “There’s that community feel that really drives the program and it’s so much fun that you forget that it’s a workout too.”
Pink Gloves Boxing is open to the public at the Wilmington Athletic Club. There will be 6 training session a week. Non-members can purchase a PGB package that benefit National Breast Cancer Month.
