A special land use and site plan proposal for Rebel Boxing, near Leo’s Coney Island at Maple and Telegraph was approved by Bloomfield Township trustees on Monday, November 13.
Rebel Boxing Fitness proposed to locate at 6565 Telegraph Road at the southeast corner of Maple in the former Skier’s Peak location, offering group classes that are boxing-inspired. Patti Voelker, township planning, building and ordinance director, said they were coming before the board for a special land use because two mornings a week they want to open at 5:30 a.m for early classes.
“They are looking to have up to 30 people at their classes, with an hour-and-a-half between classes to ease traffic. However, if they change that, there may not be enough parking,” Voelker said. She also noted that they wouldn’t hold classes between 11:30 and 3, during peak periods of traffic at the shopping center.
Eric Giaier and Dunia Hamed, husband and wife owners, explained the facility will not be a boxing facility, but a “boxing-inspired gym offering group fitness classes.”
Trustees voted 5-1, with Dani Walsh opposed and treasurer Brian Kepes absent.
