Studying the 'Sweet Science' at Doraville boxing gym

Although Gov. Brian Kemp allowed gym and fitness centers to re-open last Friday, some are choosing to wait.  That includes Sweet Science Fitness Boxing Club in Doraville, where owners say they’ll take a little more time to prepare before welcoming clients to the facility again.

That said — right now, the gym is offering live workouts on social media, giving people a little taste of the “sweet science” from right in the comfort of their own home.  

According to owner and head trainer Marty P. Hill, "Hitting a bag, jumping rope, and, of course, the famous focus that everyone loves -- the speed bags -- those workouts can burn between 500 and 1,000 calories a workout, without ever getting in the boxing ring."
