So you've decided to pick up boxing or maybe you're new to the DFW area and are looking for a boxing gym near you. Looking for a new gym can sometimes be tough. Finding a good boxing club that meets your needs isn't always easy, but we've compiled a list of boxing gyms that can help ease the process.
The gyms recommended are boxing gyms we've personally trained at, know coaches who train out those gyms, or know of fighters who box out of those clubs.
Not every gym is going to be the right fit for you depending on what your needs and preferences are. A kid looking to compete in amatuer boxing is going to have a differerent criteria to an adult looking to get in shape. My advice is to drop in the club see if the atmosphere is something you like.
