Paul Pelletier, owner of Edge Fitness, announced Tuesday, Oct. 10 the opening of the Scottsdale Boxing Club (SBC) a new membership boxing club to help the community find a health and fitness balance through the art of boxing.

This new boxing only club, which is now open, will be Mr. Pelletier’s second fitness studio in the neighborhood and is at 10810 N. 71st. Place in Scottsdale.

Mr. Pelletier said his club is strictly boxing,

“A lot of other clubs do MMA as well, but we like the discipline of boxing,” he said in a prepared statement. “What makes us unique is the combination of our patrons. We have members from all walks of life, from professional boxers to people who have never picked up a glove in their life.”

Boxing is a unique sport. It can prove to help hand eye coordination, destress and it can even have meditative properties, a release states.
