‘HitHouse’ is Ready to Pummel Spring Street

Posted on: February 15th, 2018 at 5:03 am by

Fitness “studios” along the Bowery continue to proliferate unchecked. In fact, there are more than a half-dozen high-end workout spaces for the luxury set between Grand and East Houston. Down at the corner of Spring Street, meanwhile, a new Muay Thai kickboxing gym just entered the scene.

HitHouse, which signed a lease for the 4,300 square-foot subterranean space last spring ($24,367 per month in rent), debuted to the public earlier this week. Its official launch arrives a few months later than the expected November 2017 date.

Entrance to the gym is at 2 Spring Street, a few paces west from the Nudie Jeans headquarters. There, the floor-to-ceiling boast branded leafing.

HitHouse was founded in 2016 by Muay Thai instructor/fighter, Tyler Scott, and marketing specialist and round-card girl, Dana VanPamelen. Here’s more about the company per its online bio:

Hit House is a  Muay Thai kickboxing boutique fitness studio located on the corner of Spring & Bowery. You’ll learn and improve your punches, kicks, knees and elbows by beating up your own Bishop heavy bag. Muay Thai is a full body work out: expect to improve your cardio, muscle tone and fight skills.

Hit House delivers Muay Thai in a group class setting with luxurious studio amenities.
