The new Bel Air studio at at 520 Baltimore Pike will have its ribbon-cutting ceremony Nov. 19 at 9 a.m.

Gritty boxing gym meets luxury boutique studio, Jabz is a full-body circuit style workout utilizing boxing-inspired exercises focusing on fitness, not fighters. Jabz provides a curated experience in a real boxing environment complete with a custom-designed ring and more than 250 pieces of equipment.

The new studio is owned and managed by Harford County resident Helen O’Keefe. A former educator, O’Keefe and her family have always been active in sports and committed to a healthy lifestyle. This passion eventually led her to the Jabz workout concept.

Since Jabz began franchising in 2013, its network has grown to more than 15 locations with studios currently in development in Florida and Texas.
