The 10 Best Boxing Gyms in Houston 🥊

1️⃣ Savarese Fight Fit

Saverese boxing gym in Houston

Founded in 2018 by former pro boxer, Lou Savarese, Savarese Fight Fit has become one of the most loved boxing gyms in Houston. It has developed a reputation as a lot more than just a great place to learn the Sweet Science: its members rave about the strength of the community and the friendliness of the staff.

The gym is clean and all the instructors are extremely skilled. Expect to be pushed to your limits but in an encouraging, friendly way.

You can either book private classes or join scheduled classes that take place several times every day (I’d always recommend the latter as a great way to build bonds with other members).

Most classes are 60 minutes long and combine cardio workouts, heavy bag exercises, and technique practice. They have plenty of classes throughout the day so it shouldn’t be hard to find a slot that fits your busy schedule.

Undoubtedly one of the best boxing gyms in Houston and my personal favorite. Don’t miss it.

2️⃣ Baby Bull Boxing

Baby Bull boxing gym in Houston

Baby Bull Boxing really knows what it’s doing. It’s the home gym of four time Lightweight World Champion, Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz and #1 Team USA flyweight boxer Virginia “Ginny” Fuchs.

But don’t let that intimidate you, the gym welcomes all levels and has a friendly team of outstanding coaches that make every class fun and worth your while.

Whether you are just looking for a fun and challenging workout to build your endurance/strength, or looking to improve your technical boxing skills. This gym has it all.

Not only will each workout have you standing in a pool of your own sweat by the end, but workouts are constantly changing, so your body doesn’t plateau, physically and mentally.

Open 7 days a week with multiple classes throughout the day so you can go when suits your schedule.

A great gym and I can’t wait to train here again one day.

3️⃣ Round4Round Boxing Academy

boxing classes at Round 4 Round in Houston

The reviews about this gym are unrelentingly positive! “one of the greatest boxing gyms I’ve ever been to”…”joining this gym was the best decision I ever made”…”Thank God this place exists” etc etc. The reviews are so damn good they defy belief but I’m a trusting person and it feels legit.

Much of the praise seems to be directed at owner and coach Ron who is passionate, knowledgeable, and friendly, while pushing you to the max to ensure you get a great workout.

This is a place with amazing energy and positivity. Only downside is that they only offer classes in the evenings on Monday to Thursday so it might not work if you want to train in the mornings or on the weekend.

4️⃣ Main Street Boxing & Muay Thai

Boxing classes at Main Street in Houston

As the name suggests, Main Street is not a pure boxing gym, it also coaches Muay Thai, MMA, and Jiu Jitsu. But it’s made it onto this list as it’s a great all round combat sports gym that’s definitely worth a visit.

All the coaches here are extremely experienced and knowledgeable. They are all current or former fighters themselves.

Main Street offers a range of classes throughout the days and week, and make no mistake, they will push you hard here and train you how to actually fight!

They certainly know what they are doing here and claim to have trained over 50 world champions so you’ll know you’re in safe, passionate hands when you train here.

5️⃣ Donis Boxing Academy 

Donis Boxing Gym in Houston

Coach David Donis is a certified US Boxing Coach and former 3-time NBAF champion. By all accounts, he is a truly passionate instructor determined to get the best out of everyone that steps into him gym.

He guides many of his students from beginners right through to amateur competition by diligently teaching the core techniques of boxing, so this could be the perfect place for you if you’re looking to get in the ring in an official bout.

There’s a great energy to this place and just check out all the Google reviews to get an idea of how good a coach Donis is.

It’s a little on the expensive side with packages for adults starting at $240 / month for just 1 class a week.

6️⃣ Katy Boxing Club

Katy Boxing Club in Houston

Katy Boxing Club, situated north west of Houston, is a no-nonsense boxing gym that lives and breathes the sport.

This is as far as you’ll get from a sterilized boxercise place where people sit around taking selfies. Here it’s all about the technique and Coach Rodney really knows his stuff.

Lower reviews are generally due to people having issues cancelling their membership and still getting charged for a month or two after so make sure to read the fine print when you sign up.

At just $100/month for unlimited classes, this is one of the best value boxing gyms I could find in Houston.

7️⃣ 4 Corners Boxing

4 corners boxing gym in Houston

This community gym has a focus on helping kids stay off the street and out of trouble. They teach boxing as well as general self-defense and provide mentorship to kids. Adults very welcome too.

It’s a family orientated place with great values and professional coaches who are really good with the kids. They also have a sauna and an ice bath in case that’s your thing.

It feels a little on the expensive side for me at $250/ month for just 3 classes a week and there are only a small number of classes each day. Although this also gives you access to their weights and other gym equipment.

8️⃣ Prince Boxing Complex

Prince boxing gym in Houston

Prince Boxing Gym is just as much a community centre as it is a place to practice the Sweet Science. It’s regulars rave about the friendly staff and how welcoming the gym is for kids.

The gym is kept clean and there is plenty of space. The problem is, there’s very little information about this gym online, and it doesn’t have a website so I haven’t found many details on training programs, costs, and opening hours are scarce.

You’ll have to head on down to their gym to learn more.

9️⃣ Title Boxing Club

Title boxing gym

If you want a great workout while having fun then sure, Title Boxing Club is for you. If you actually want to box then it’s not for you. Their website says it is a non-contact workout and that it will never allow fighting or sparring in the gym…

It’s a fitness studio not a boxing gym. If that’s what you’re after then great, they have multiple classes through the day, 7 days a week, and the coaches and workouts sound fantastic.

Title Boxing Gym is a big chain with hundreds of clubs across the USA so the equipment is top quality and it’s well run.

I don’t know about you, but I prefer the type of boxing where you actually box!

🔟 HTX Fight Camp

HTX boxing gym in Houston

Like Title Boxing Club, HTX FightCamp is a boxing inspired cardio and resistance training program. It isn’t really a boxing gym because it doesn’t teach you how to fight, how to get hit, and how to hit an opponent.

You’ll no doubt get a great workout but, if you really want to box, then why not try boxing proper. I promise, you won’t regret it.

There’s a great vibe here though and it’s women-run which might appeal to women looking to get into a male-dominated sport.

Like most gyms HTX offers 1-on-1 sessions but I always find classes to be more fun.

How to pick a Houston 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 – for me this is so important. 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 Houston cost? 💰

  • Monthly memberships: ~$150-250 per month. Most places offer unlimited classes to their members. Be sure to check for this.
  • One-on-one personal training: This can vary a lot but expect to pay around $100 per hour as a minimum.
  • Drop-in boxing classes for non-members: ~$15-$30 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 🔔
