There’s a new boxing gym in town and I got a VIP tour of the space yesterday at their soft launch. HardKnocks Boxing now located in the quickly gentrifying area of Queen and Parliament is set to be Toronto’s newest and badass Boxing destination. If you are a pro boxer of just a boxing enthusiast you will want to keep an eye out for this place.
Founded and owned by Toronto entrepreneur Lee Baxter, you may know him from FY INK, Gangsta Burger and Lee Baxter Promotions to name a few. He pretty much knows everyone and so you can bet this place will be frequented by Toronto’s best pro fighters.
They put me through a mini workout and I got to kick the shit outta some bags, so basically now I’m Rocky!! I look forward to stepping in the ring here and letting out a little aggression. They told me they will be offering only men, only women and unisex classes for every skill level soon and I will let you know when they become available. Plus everyone under 18 is invited to train here for free from 3pm-6pm every day!!!!
WHAT IS HARDKNOCKS BOXING ALL ABOUT:
For years we felt there was something missing for our boxers. We were wondering what it would be like to open an elite boxing gym for dedicated boxers. We felt like we were on a mission to make a better experience for everyone. We know that boxing is the greatest workout in the world. Hands down. No contest. What you put in is what you get out. HARD WORK and DEDICATION is our motto. HARD KNOCKS is our way of life. When your backed into a corner with no way out, you’ll wish you were part of the club.
Stay tuned for more information as the gym gets fully up and operational!
