About the Gym
With the assistance from The City of Edinburgh Council I was able to set up the Academy at West Harbour Road, Granton. Since the doors opened in June 2009, the Club has attracted both male and females alike.
We are not your ordinary Boxing Club, Gym or Fitness Bootcamp. We combine real traditional boxing training which is used all over the world by Boxers who look to gain maximum results in the minimal amount of time whilst still providing a friendly socialable environment for all ages and abilities.We have all been to the Gym where you have seen groups of Guys in front of the mirrors using the weights looking intimidating. Here you will find the opposite, there is always a friendly face around to spot you or provide helpful advice on how to improve your technique.
Other ServicesThe Edinburgh Boxing Academy is not just open to individuals, if you're part of a Football, Rugby club, etc then please get in touch where we can arrange a private class for the whole team. We often coach teams who are looking to get back into shape for the coming season.
Please feel free to drop in and look around to see what we have in our club.
The goal of the Academy is to become a self sustaining business by attracting new members to the club. This can be done by working with local youth action teams and promoting the club via websites, social media, local press and primatial boxing shows.
We are proud of the way our new members are quickly made to feel welcome by existing members.
The Academy supports and encourages its students through physical endurance training that channels their energy in a positive direction, teach them discipline, respect and self motivation. It is also a place where we have adult classes for all to come along and try out T.E.B.A. Ultimate Fitness. It involves a real fitness workout that professional boxers do, were we will hit everybody part and you will see results.
