Here’s how Red Corner describes what it offers: “Basic boxing training to extreme boxing technique training.” Extreme. Love it!

You just know that this place is a real deal boxing gym, passionate about the true art of the sport, and training its members to really fight.

Don’t let that intimidate you though. The sense of community and atmosphere are awesome thanks to Bobby Joe and his team who make everyone feel welcomed. Doesn’t matter if you’re a pro, a beginner, or a child. They’ve got you covered here.

Lots of members credit the coaches with helping them not just with their boxing but also with life outside the ring: confidence, discipline, respect. This is exactly how a boxing gym should be.

Note that training sessions are only in the evenings during the week.

Only good things to say about this humble buy mighty boxing gym. Definitely one of the best in El Paso. Highly recommended.

2️⃣ El Paso Boxing Club

El Paso Boxing Club

  • Summary: A top class, family run gym training real fighters
  • Address: 6404 N Mesa St b4
  • Google rating: 4.7
  • Opening hours: M-T: 4-pm, Sa: 10am-1pm
  • Pricing: $98 / month (unlimited classes)
  • Best for: wannabe competitors
  • Online: website, Instagram, Facebook

El Paso Boxing Club is a small, family run boxing gym focusing on teaching genuine boxing technique and also helping develop their members as people.

They train lots of their fighters for competitive bouts, both kids and adults, so if that’s what you’re after then this would be a great option for you.

If not, they have a “non-contact” program too for those who want to get fighting fit and learn some skills. There’s something here for everyone.

Coach David Hancock is not only very experienced and knowledgeable but is also a very popular guy. He welcomes everyone and ensure that you’ll get the attention you need to improve.

El Paso Boxing Club is the real deal. There’s nothing fancy about it, but it’s full of passion for the sport and a determination to keep improving, day by day.

Highly recommended.

3️⃣ Herrera Boxing Gym

Herrera Boxing Gym in El Paso

  • Summary: an affordable low key authentic boxing gym
  • Address: 1215 N Copia St ste a
  • Google rating: 4.8
  • Opening hours: M-F: 5-9pm, Sa: 9-10am
  • Pricing: $60 / month
  • Best for: those on a budget
  • Online: website, Facebook

Herrera’s is a very simple and low key gym. There’s nothing fancy about it at all, but boxing gyms aren’t meant to be stylish and modern.

What’s important is that the coaching here is high quality and that they train true boxing technique. It’s definitely not a boxercise joint!

Training sessions at Herrera’s are every evening during the week. They’re hoping to open up some morning slots soon.

And at just $60 / month for adults (and $40 for children below 16), it is one of the most affordable boxing gyms in El Paso.

Ideal if you’re on a bit of a budget and just want some raw boxing training.

4️⃣ WarriorsEdge Boxing

Warriors Edge Boxing Gym El Paso

  • Summary: a very solid authentic boxing gym with a strong competitive team
  • Address: 3465 Lee Blvd # 233
  • Google rating: 4.5
  • Opening hours: M-F: 6-9pm, Sa: 9am-12pm
  • Pricing: $70 / month
  • Best for: wannabe competitive fighters
  • Online: website, Instagram, Facebook

WarriorsEdge is a decent authentic boxing gym on the eastern side of El Paso that’s all about coaching the real Sweet Science. It was founded back in 2010 and is family run by certified USA Boxing Coach Luis Trevino and his wife Claudia.

They have a competitive team here and train many of their members from scratch all the way through to competing (and sometimes winning) Golden Gloves championships.

Most of the boxing training is done through one on one sessions, or you can go to “open gym” and train with whoever is around or pick up some tips from the coaches. They also host some fitness classes for those who just want to get in shape.

At just $70 / month it’s pretty decent value, but you’ll probably end up getting some private coaching too which costs so $50/hr so will add up quite quickly.

A solid local boxing gym, definitely worth a shot.

5️⃣ Garcia’s House of Boxing

Garcia's House of Boxing in El Paso

  • Summary: a fun, popular, intense, boxercise gym. Not proper boxing.
  • Address: 1477 Lomaland Dr
  • Google rating: 4.6
  • Opening hours: M-T: 5am-9pm, F: 5am – 8pm
  • Pricing: $150 / month (unlimited classes)
  • Best for: beginners and fitness fanatics
  • Online: website, Instagram, Facebook

Garcia’s House of Boxing is more of a fitness studio than a boxing gym.

Not that I have a problem with that, but if you want to learn real boxing, to fight, to hit and get hit, then this isn’t the right place for you.

Having said that, it would be a great place for beginners to start throwing some punches or for you to get in killer shape through boxing workouts. And there’s no doubt the workouts at Garcia’s are intense, motivating and fun.

They host up to 7 classes everyday which vary between strength / conditioning classes and cardio / aeroboxing.

If you want to get in great shape, be part of a cool community, and have fun while you workout then Garcia’s is the place for you. If you want to learn true boxing, then go elsewhere.

6️⃣ Wolves Den Gym

Wolves Den Gym in El Paso

  • Summary: a high quality general gym with a solid boxing program
  • Address: 1010 Wall St
  • Google rating: 4.4
  • Opening hours: M-F: 4am-11pm, Sa: 6am-2pm, Su: 7am-12pm
  • Pricing: $100 / month (estimated)
  • Best for: those looking for a varied workout regime
  • Online: website, Instagram, Facebook

Wolves Den isn’t really a boxing gym, it’s more of a general gym with a boxing program but I’ve included it on this list as it’s still a decent place to train boxing here in El Paso.

You can go in and hit the bags or you can join their boxing classes which include cardio boxing and competitive boxing. There are usually 2 boxing classes each day, as well as a kids boxing boxing class.

The facility itself is modern, crystal clean, and full of all the equipment you could need. And the trainers are all very well qualified and friendly.

Wolves Den would be a great option for you if you’re into weight training but also want to get some boxing classes in every so often.

How to pick an El Paso 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 El Paso cost? 💰

  • Monthly memberships: expect to pay $60-$150 / month depending on the gym and the services they offer.
  • One-on-one personal training: usually around $40 per hour as a minimum.
  • Drop-in boxing classes for non-members: ~$15 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

12th Round 🔔

El Paso isn’t well endowed with world class boxing gyms but there are still some decent options. If you can get to Red Corner or El Paso Boxing Club then you’re going to be in good hands. If not, the other gyms on this list will help scratch your boxing itch.

Happy fighting! 🥊🥊
