Bash Boxing has gained Washington Capitals player Tom Wilson as an investor.
The Capitals right winger isn’t shy about throwing a punch on the ice. But it’s not only the boxing that drew Wilson to invest in the studio, which is open in Rosslyn and coming soon to Ballston. As Wilson found while giving Bash a try, the non-contact boxing-oriented workouts are intense, fun and always leave you feeling reinvigorated.
Bash offers two of today’s hottest workouts — boxing and high-intensity interval training. Taught by the area’s best fitness experts, participants learn boxing basics at the beginning of each class. The 45-minute workouts combine boxing moves, water-filled training bags, weights and other interval training along with concert-style music to hit to.
While Bash teaches you how to throw a punch, it’s the “good feeling” and confidence you build by the end of each workout that co-owner Alex Trakas wanted to spread — and that drew in Tom Wilson and his investment.
Though Wilson wasn’t actively looking for business opportunities, he decided now was a good time to put down some roots and get involved in local businesses.
