“London’s best boxing gyms

You needn’t be Muhammad Ali to reap the benefits of boxing. As an exercise it can’t be bettered, as a sport it’s unmatched. All you need is passion and a place to train. Take a guard for GQ’s updated list of the best boxing gyms in London.  BY MAX WILLIAMS

Originally of Old Street, FighterFit was founded in 2008 by Francesco Tavormina, former alumni of Islington Boxing Club. Rapid success caused the gym to make the short move to Shoreditch in 2014. FighterFit offers a range of different classes; alas the summertime workouts in Shoreditch Park have just passed, but classes of boxing, and strength and conditioning, should keep you busy, as well as sparring clinics for the bold. A modern outlook is signalled by the nutrition and protein products on sale, perfect for post-workout consumption. And you even do yoga: power yoga for boxers, vinyasa flow to relax the muscles. Anthony Joshua is among yoga’s many boxing advocates.”
