Past Thornton Summer Events With Beer (and Without)

Rumble Boxing 

On May 21 we joined up with Rumble Boxing to offer a FREE 45-minute shadow boxing workout. Because what goes better with boxing than beer!? Rumble Boxing offers a collection of classes led by instructors who are part DJs, part motivational speakers, and complete Master of Ceremonies. In every 45-minute class, there is an awesome workout engineered to the beat of custom hip-hop and house mashups. The music, the lights, the program, and the collective heartbeat of the room all come together for an intense and effective workout.  


Rumble Boxing Workouts

The 10-round, 45-minute fight is evenly divided between two styles of training. Half of the class is spent exploring the skills and drills of boxing, and the other half is spent on the transformative power of resistance training. 

We’re working hard to bring you fun Thornton events with beer this summer. Other events we have participated in this year include the Northglenn Food Truck Carnival and a fundraiser for #tougher2gether.
