Business puts a ring on it

(Emily Thurlow) Genève Brossard, founder of Berkshire Boxing Club.

GREAT BARRINGTON — Like some young girls, Genève Brossard saw a ring in her future.

And in April, the dream became a reality. The Mount Washington resident secured the ring of her dreams — a boxing ring.

For the past three years, Brossard, the founder of Berkshire Boxing Club, has been floating her boxing program from location to location, but now, the business has a permanent address, complete with a ring. Programs at the time ranged from non-contact fitness to competition.

“I was getting burnt out moving from spot to spot each week,” she said. “Boxers were hitting a wall in their training. They could only go so far without the right equipment and a ring.”

But now that club has taken up permanent residency at 72 Stockbridge Road in Great Barrington, that’s all changed. The space, previously occupied by Gans Bedding, has been completely outfitted for Berkshire Boxing.

As the head coach, Brossard leads the club’s classes, which includes strength and conditioning, mobility, wellbeing and boxing for the novice, youth Olympic-style, intermediate and advanced levels. The business also provides functional fitness, hybrid fitness, recovery yoga, sparring, guest seminars, exhibition fights, Olympic and powerlifting, and one-on-one sessions.
