Owner Terry and his great team have been coaching proper boxing here for nearly 20 years. I think it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing.

As the name suggests, this is a pure old school boxing gym that focuses on proper technique. They train plenty of fighters for competitive bouts, including a handful of pros. A bouji boxercise studio, this most definitely is not.

They host two or three classes every day, dividing up beginners, kids, and competitors to make sure you’re training at the level that is right for you. Personal training and long “become an amateur fighter” programs are also available.

Above all, members here talk endlessly of the family-like environment at Old School Boxing. This is not just a great place to learn how to box but it’s also a thriving community and a place to meet passionate, kind people.

Highly recommended!

2️⃣ Boxing With Love

Strange name for a boxing gym, you’re probably thinking. Well, this top class boxing gym was founded and is run by Alex Love, one of the country’s leading female boxing coaches.

And to stick on the theme, people LOVE this gym. It’s impossible to find a bad word said about it. The praise ranges from the strength of the community here, to the quality of the workout, to the great facility.

The coaches are kind, caring, patient, and experienced. Thanks to them and their approach, there are no egos here. It truly is a boxing gym welcoming to all ages and abilities.

Classes are in the evenings Monday through Thursday and the rest of the time the gym is open for personal training or self-driven workouts.

Coach Ali is the man. He’s been teaching old school boxing for over 40 years and certainly knows his stuff. He’ll push you to your limits though so make sure you’re ready and willing to work hard!

The ethos here is all about integrity and honestly examining and improving you personal ability. The coaches want to make sure you learn the proper technique and will go deep into the details to make sure you’re perfecting it and becoming the best boxer you can be. This is how a boxing gym should be.

Group classes are held every evening during the week and they have designated sessions for kids, teens, and adults. If you want to train to compete then they’ve got that covered too and regularly submit fighters to competitions.

They also coach kickboxing and Muay Thai if you want a little variety in your training.

The fact that this place is equally as good with the kids as it is with the pros tells you a lot.

They care deeply about all their members here and have created a giant family with a shared love of true boxing.

Run by former Olympic boxers and coaches, Triple Threat is an extremely professional and passionate place, yet it isn’t intimidating at all and is welcoming to boxers of all levels and abilities.

As well as coaching amateur champs, they also have classes for women, kids, fitness, and self defense. All held in their spacious, modern facility.

As the name suggests, Victory MMA isn’t quite a pure boxing gym, but it has a top class boxing program so is a very worthy addition to this list.

Victory was founded back in 2009 by former MMA pro Gilbert Smith Jr who had previously spent several years in the army where he also trained his fellow soldiers. Gilbert is a hugely popular coach among his members who describe his as respectful, knowledgeable, and caring.

They have trained everyone here from professional fighters in the UFC, to women looking for self-defense, to kids. You’re guaranteed to find what you’re looking for.

They have several of boxing classes everyday for you to choose from, or you can mix it up and join some of their MMA, BJJ, or kickboxing classes.

You honestly wont find a bad word said about Gilbert and his gym. Highly recommended.

6️⃣ YBarra’s Boxing Club

YBarra boxing gym in colorado springs

  • Summary: a humble but mighty gym training real fighters
  • Address: 11 Widefield Blvd
  • Google rating: 5.0
  • Opening hours: M, W, F: 5-7pm
  • Pricing: $99 / month
  • Best for: wannabe competitors
  • Online: website, Facebook

YBarra’s is a humble but mighty boxing gym.

There’s nothing fancy about this place but it’s all about the boxing. This certainly isn’t a boxercise studio so only come here if you want to learn the proper art of the sport.

Owner and head coach Luis “Joe” Ybarra has been doing this for decades and now owns three boxing gyms in the state. They regularly send fighters to competitive bouts so if that’s what you’re aiming for with your training then you’ll be in very good hands here.

Classes are only held on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings so you don’t have tons of options to choose from if you can’t make those times.

How to pick a Colorado Springs boxing gym

  • Coaches – an experienced, motivating coach makes all the difference. Not just when it comes to improving your technique but also in encouraging you to keep coming back time and time again. Becoming a good boxer takes a long time and so it’s important you find a coach that you click with if this is something you want to do for many years. Reviews will often focus on coaches so try looking for those for some insights.
  • Convenience of location and class timings – this is key. My boxing gym is on the same block as my home so I have no excuse not to go almost everyday, even if I’m not feeling up to it. Finding a gym that’s close to home or work will make your life much easier and help to make going to boxing training a habit. The same applies to class timings, if you have to massively disrupt your day to get to a class because it doesn’t fit your schedule then you’re going to be less likely to go.
  • Gym focus – I don’t have a problem with boxercise classes, but make sure you know what you’re signing up for if you join one of these. Boxercise is very different than actually learning how to fight and getting sparring experience. If you truly want to learn how to box then you need to box. That involves punching other people and getting punched yourself.
  • Trial class – most boxing gyms will allow you to have a free trial class so you can get a feel for the place before you sign up. This is a great way of evaluating whether you like the coach, the energy, and the focus of the gym. Always worth asking for a free trial class if you’re not sure whether it’s offered.

How much do boxing gyms in Colorado Springs cost? 💰

  • Monthly memberships: There’s a huge range here from ~$75-100 per month. Most places offer unlimited classes to their members. Be sure to check for this.
  • One-on-one personal training: Depending on the gym, costs are around $40 per hour as a minimum.
  • Drop-in boxing classes for non-members: ~$15-$20 per class
  • Initiation fee: not all places make you pay one of these (and I’m not a fan of it) but those that do usually charge a one-off fee of $50-$100

12th Round 🔔

Colorado Springs may not be bursting with boxing gyms but the ones it does have a world class. Any of the names on this list would be great places for you to train, so pick one, and get on with it.

Happy fighting! 🥊🥊
