The times of Tyson, Mayweather or Muhammad Ali are over, but that doesn’t mean that boxing is over. In a decade in which people are choosing cross-functional, CrossFit, or even going to the gym, there are still some boxers that choose this sport to exercise. There are, in fact, plenty of gyms all over the world, in the United States and particularly in Los Angeles. As such, there are many different options for boxing in Echo Park. Let us tell you some of the best.
Echo Park Boxing
We could not start this article with anything other than Echo Park Boxing at 1302 Sunset Blvd. Over there, it is possible to practice not only boxing but also many other martial arts like Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, MMA, or kickboxing, among others. The gym has been in the Angelino suburb since 2015, but its experience in the fight business traces back to the 90s. Every level, from beginners to competitive fighters is accepted in this gym, which possesses small class sizes and lots of personal attention.
The Peace Center Gym
Even though it is a few blocks away from Echo Park this boxing gym is on this list because of its many advantages. Located at 4709 Melrose Av, it is open 24 hs of a day, every day of the week. The irony of the name comes from the many different physical activities that can be practiced over here. Boxing, martial arts, Cross-training, and weightlifting are the main ones among them. Hannah said on Yelp.com: “I had my first boxing class today and LOVED it! I got to learn the technique but it’s a great workout.”
Downtown Fighting Club
For the last six years, Downtown Fighting Club has been showing the way to their customers, with the experience of trainers who are still fighting professionally. Located in Downtown Los Angeles (therefore the name), this gym takes pride in what they teach: Boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and MMA… the training they offer is one on one and led by certified personal trainers, who design a customized workout program to maximize your result. In addition to that, they can also bring the workout to the comfort of your own home, gym, or even outdoors.
