New boxing facility punches into Allentown’s fitness scene

A new Allentown boxing facility invites you to “disguise your exercise” and “get fit at HIT.”

HIT Fitness Boxing, offering 10-round bag and core training classes, held a soft opening Monday at 1247 Airport Road, in the Airport Plaza.

Owner Joe Grisafi spent the past several months renovating a former Fine Wine & Good Spirits store, which moved to the nearby Airport Center in January 2021.

Instructors are focused on “combining the science of boxing with the transformative power of strength and core training,” according to a message on the business’ website.
