boxing gym testimonials

I joined this gym in May 2013. I train about 3-4 days a week. Ever since then, I've had nothing but pleasant experiences. RG is the best boxing trainer and consistently pushes me to reach new limits. Dom's bjj program is always engaging. The people are amazing and always push each other to do more. Would recommend this gym to anyone beginner or advanced.
