We've all been there — as you're getting ready for bed, you set your phone alarm with grand intentions of getting up and going to pilates, a spin class or a run before work. Then, when that absurd time rolls out, getting out of bed is a near impossible feat. Well, we may have found a cure for that.

Undercard Boxing, Darlinghurst's newest concept gym, is hosting an event this Thursday, June 27, that'll put a pep in your sleepy step. The special pre-work session will give you a (free) taster of this new fitness craze developed by co-founders Kesava Commerford and Zach Vickers. It combines boxing, strength and metabolic conditioning training styles for a high-intensity workout to get your blood pumping — you'll forget that the temperature outside is teetering around the single digits in no time. This special session kicks off at 8am and is invite only — but, we've managed to spots for you and a mate.

The event is said to be themed on the cult film Fight Club, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Like the film, Undercard involves heading underground and throwing punches in a dimly lit space. But that's pretty much where the comparisons end. The workout area is a super slick room, with orange-tinted lights, high-tech treadmills, free weights and a bunch of water-filled punching bags hanging from the ceiling. The class runs for about an hour and will test both your strength and endurance.

The event will be bookended with exciting happenings from some of Undercard's lifestyle and wellness partners. Before the class, Paddington's Valonz hairdressers will be on-site offering hair braiding and there'll be free bottles of water from Just Water. Post-workout, you'll be able to get activewear styling tips from Style Runner and tuck into the delicious breakfast grazing table from Bondi's Porch and Parlour. A free workout, styling tips and a free breakfast — not a bad excuse to get out of bed, after all.

To be in the running (pun intended), enter your details below.
