Best Reviewed Boxing Gyms In NYC

Finding a great boxing gym in NYC isn’t easy. Choices are plentiful in New York City (all the boroughs), and not all gyms are created equal, and you may have different goals than other people searching for a place to learn boxing or find a trainer (read a bit about choosing a boxing gym for self-defense or fitness). We’ve put together a starter-list for you to check out gyms based on the user reviews and social media followings of local places in New York City (Manhattan only for this article – otherwise we would have had to add in some gyms from Brooklyn, and the other boroughs, like the legendary Gleason’s Gym).

This “best of” methodology is obviously not an exact science, so check out what we compiled and let us know what you think by clicking on the links in the title of each gym and submitting your own review on our site.

This is a true boxing gym where you rub shoulders with pro fighters and amateurs from all walks of life. All have on goal, to improve and aspire for betterment. Other than physical workout, this is also a great community. Trainers are very professional and members are courteous. I had previous boxing training and have been there for almost two years. Love the place. – David (Facebook)

At 150+ classes in, I had to write a review. I can’t say enough of how great this underground boxers paradise is. You will get in a great workout every time…guaranteed! … If your looking for private sessions I recommend the guys who run the classes: Jayo, Steve, Mike, Kalief, Maurice, Kenny, Marco. – Mike B (Yelp)

I attended a boxing training session, and I must say the experience exceeded my expectations. You will not be disappointed. From the front desk to the locker rooms/ showers, the facility is well equipped. If you want an experience that’s fun, challenging, and be part of a group that genuinely love what they do and that will support you, then I highly recommend this place. I can’t wait to go back again. – Victoria (Facebook)

The gym is great and the classes are kick ass. My only negative feedback is that there aren’t any mirrors in the women’s locker room and there’s only 1 blow dryer. This makes it tough to get ready quickly before work. It would be awesome if you can fix those minor issues, otherwise no complaints! – Caitlin O (Facebook – [the gym management replied to this, saying that the women’s locker room is being renovated now[)

Obsessed with this place! I have tendinitis in both hands so it’s hard to find a workout that doesn’t aggravate that. The aqua bags have left my hands feeling great after every class. So far I’ve taken classes with Andy, Danielle, and Noah and they all bring something different and awesome to each class. Loving Rumble! – Erin (Facebook)

Rumble is for sure one of the most unique fitness experiences in NYC. I have a regular gym, but I go to Rumble for a boost and change to my normal workout. The instruction is universally top notch (I’ve taken most of the trainers) and you can actually learn! I’ve added many of their strength moves to my routine and noticed my fitness improvements.  – Micah T (Yelp)
