My preference is always for those rare, pure, old school boxing gyms, free of ego, and full of passion for the sport. But sometimes I include the odd boxercise place because I know that not everyone wants the nitty gritty of actual combat.

Why listen to me: I’ve been boxing as an amateur for 6 years and trained in countless boxing gyms around the world from Seattle to Spain. I’ve learnt that picking the right gym can literally change your life and want to help you do the same. Learn more about me here.

1️⃣ Reyes KO Boxing Gym

There’s not a bad word said about this gem of a pure, old school boxing gym.

Anyone who visits talks about how friendly coach Armando is and the awesome environment he’s created here.

Members describe Reyes Boxing gym as a “family”, “community”, “second home” – exactly how the best boxing gyms feel.

There are no egos or assholes here. Just export coaches (including a former Brazil Olympics coach) and members who are supportive, kind, and passionate about getting fit and learning the true art of boxing.

After a few months of training at Reyes KO, you won’t just know how to fight, but you’ll feel more confident, happy and positive about yourself.

Everyone of all skills and ages is welcome here. They offer group classes in the mornings and evenings from Monday through to Thursday, as well as some classes on Friday evening and Saturday morning. Private coaching is available at $200 for four one hour lessons.

They also have an in-house nutritionist/strength and conditioning coach who works with every member who wants help with their nutrition and meal planning. This is a great addition as it can be easy to overlook proper nutrition but its a key part of the training journey.

No doubt one of the best boxing gyms in Salt Lake City, if not Utah. If you can train here, do. You won’t regret it.

2️⃣ Fullmer Brother’s Gym

  • Summary: A true old school boxing gym for those looking to compete
  • Address: 11000 2200 W
  • Google rating: 4.3
  • Opening hours: M-T: 6-8:30pm
  • Pricing: free
  • Best for: advanced competitive boxers
  • Online: Facebook

If you’re looking for one of those gritty old school boxing gyms that smell of sweat and is hanging together by duct tape and sheer discipline, then look no further than Fullmer Brother’s Boxing Gym.

The gym, which has been operating for over 30 years, was founded by Gene Fullmer and his brothers.

Gene was a former global middleweight world champion from Utah, who famously beat legendary Sugar Ray Robinson in 1957 to win the title. It is still run today by the Fullmer family.

Fullmer’s is a competition gym, so they focus on training fighters for amateur bouts, meaning it’s probably not the right place if you are totally new to the sport.

But, if you’re serious about your boxing and want to compete, then you’ve come to the right place. Needless to say, the coaches are top class.

It is free to join and is operated by volunteer coaches, although you’ll need to first register with USA boxing which costs $80 for the year. The reason it’s free is that the late Fullmer brothers who founded the gym made it their dying wish that no one was ever charged to use it. Strong values such as this are core to this place.

There are plans for a brand new $5m facility called the Fullmer Legacy Center but it’s not clear when these will become a reality.

Fullmer Boxing Gym is legendary so if you get the chance to train here, take it! Boxing gyms in Salt Lake City don’t come much better than this.

3️⃣ Factum 

Factum boxing gym in salt lake city

  • Summary: Great value. Top atmosphere. Skilled coaches. Mixed combat gym that ticks all the boxes.
  • Address: 8383 South 700 West Sandy
  • Google rating: 4.8
  • Opening hours: M-F: 5:15am – 9pm, Sa: 9am-1pm
  • Pricing: $100 / month (unlimited classes)
  • Best for: those after variety in their training
  • Online: website, Facebook, Instagram

Factum is an MMA gym but they do have a substantial boxing offering (~5 boxing classes a day) so it would be a great option for you to train even if you’re only interested in the sweet science.

If you’re after a bit of variety, then you can also learn Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, and take crossfit classes here. With a packed daily schedule from 5am to 9pm, there’s a class to suit everyone.

They’ve built a reputation for being a really friendly bunch at Factum, so don’t be intimidated if you’re a first timer. Owner Phillip and his large team have created a welcoming and respectful environment.

Members often talk about the friendships they’ve made at Factum that have extended outside of the gym.

If you want to get up and compete in front of a crowd then Factum can make that happen for you too. They host USA Boxing Fight nights every so often, and it could be your name on the next fight card.

Also, at just $100 / month for unlimited classes and gym access, it’s great value. Highly recommended on all fronts – well worth a visit!

4️⃣ Fight City SLC

Fight City Boxing gym

  • Summary: Incredible value for money. Passionate, skilled coaches.
  • Address:  2394 S W Temple St
  • Google rating: 4.8
  • Opening hours: M-T: 3-9pm, F: 3-7pm
  • Pricing: $65/month (unlimited classes)
  • Best for: bargain hunters and killers!
  • Online: website, Facebook, Instagram

One happy member of Fight City SLC commented: “This is a real boxing and mixed discipline gym full of absolute killers in every discipline”.  “Absolute killers” might sound a bit intimidating but it’s definitely meant as a good thing!

Coaches Eric and Tim are both extremely knowledgeable and passionate about these sports and this translates into top class coaching. They’ll ensure that everyone in the class is getting individual attention so that you’re progressing your skills.

Fight City SLC is an another MMA gym, rather than a pure boxing gym, but they hold boxing classes everyday including dedicated sparring sessions. Also, owner Eric is a former pro boxer, so no worries, you’ll get plenty of serious boxing training in at Fight City if that’s all that you’re after.

They have a gym that is open 24/7 for members and at just $64/month for unlimited classes, there are surely no better value for money boxing gyms in Salt Lake City or even the country.

5️⃣ Legends Boxing Gym

  • Summary: Modern, welcoming boxing fitness studios. Ideal for beginners.
  • Address: 602 500 E #106
  • Google rating: 4.8

Legends Boxing is a high-end boxing chain with dozens of gyms across the country. It teaches proper boxing technique through boxing fitness classes, so it’s not one of those traditional boxing gyms that focuses on combat.

Having said that, they do allow some sparring and also occasionally host fights to give amateurs a chance to compete with an audience

The facilities at Legends Boxing Gyms are top-notch, with well-maintained boxing rings, plenty of equipment, and ample space for bag work and conditioning exercises. The gyms are clean and organized.

They run 4-6 group classes every weekday for you to choose from, as well as a handful on the weekends.

Reviews of Legends are glowing, with most members praising the strong community feel, intense workouts, and great coaches.

If you’re looking for a great place to get started with boxing, learn the basics, and get fighting fit, then Legends is a solid option for you.

6️⃣ Brickyard Boxing

  • Summary: Much-loved boxing fitness studio.
  • Address: 1227 East 3300 South
  • Google rating: 5.0
  • Opening hours: M,W, &F: 6am-8:30pm, T & T: 10am-8:30pm Sa: 9-11:30am, Su: 10-11am

  • Best for: beginners and casual boxers
  • Online: website, Facebook, Instagram

Wow, everyone who goes to Brickyard Boxing raves about it. It’s impossible to find a bad word said about this place.

There’s lot of talk about the transformative effect it has had on people both physically and mentally. The workouts are full on, the facility is clean and modern, and the environment is electric.

It’s not quite one of those pure boxing gyms, though – the focus is really on boxing fitness and it doesn’t look like there’s any sparring. Having said that, the have experienced boxing coaches who run classes focused on proper boxing technique (as well as cardio, mobility, and kickboxing classes).

If you’re serious about your boxing and want to combat train or compete. To hit, and get hit. Then it’s probably not the place not the place for you.

They run two or three boxing classes everyday and are hoping to add more to the schedule as their memberships grows. They are still fairly new to the scene having opened in November 2021.

All in all, a great place to get fit, learn the fundamentals of boxing, and surround yourself with motivational, friendly people.

7️⃣ Boxing is for Girls 

Boxing is For Girls boxing gym

  • Summary: High energy boxing / fitness studio aimed at women
  • Address: 1983 1100 E
  • Google rating: 4.5
  • Opening hours: M-Sa: 6am-8pm
  • Pricing: $30/class
  • Best for: women
  • Online: website, Facebook, Instagram

The idea of boxing gyms can be pretty intimidating for women.

But Boxing Is For Girls is trying to smash that misconception and they’re doing a pretty good job of it. (It’s not actually just for women, though, men can, and do, train there). I’ve found no other boxing gyms in Salt Lake City that focus on women.

Owner and operator, Eliza James, is a unique and energetic character who builds strong bonds with everyone who works out in her classes (group classes and one-on-one training is available). She brings a spiritual approach to her training to try and get the best out of her students.

Boxing Is For Girls feels like more of a boxercise type studio rather than proper combat training. There’s not a ton of focus on technique and no sparring.

Having said that, the workouts are no doubt great fun and intense, so if you’re looking for a way to get fit and start getting familiar with throwing some punches then Boxing Is For Girls could be a great choice.

8️⃣ Ultimate Combat Training Center (UTCT)

UCTC gym in salt lake city

  • Summary: A solid MMA gym with a large boxing offering
  • Address: 1274 E 3300 S
  • Google rating: 4.2
  • Opening hours: M-T: 6am-8:30pm, F: 1am-1pm, Sa: 8-10am, Su: 9-10am
  • Pricing: $10 / class
  • Best for: those wanting to learn some MMA too
  • Online: website, Facebook, Instagram

As the name suggests, UCTC isn’t a pure boxing gym, it’s a mixed combat sports gym, but it has a large boxing component and it’s a great gym so is a very addition to this list.

They certainly work hard here: UCTC is open seven days a week, from dawn till dusk during the week, offering up to 12 classes a day for you to choose from.

They have up to 4 boxing classes a day, including kids classes, with the rest of the classes being Jiu-JItsu, kickboxing, strength and conditioning, and muay thai. There is really something here for everyone, no matter your taste, talent, age, or schedule.

UCTC has a wide range of highly qualified instructors across all disciplines with plenty of professional fighting experience and high rankings. The facility is clean and modern, and the atmosphere is great. UCTC is said to be especially good for beginners.

A few reviews have complained that they’ve had trouble cancelling contracts and that they have been signed up for contracts longer than they intended. Make sure you’re very clear on what you’re agreeing to if you sign a contract. Read the small print!

How to pick a Salt Lake City 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 Salt Lake City cost? 💰

  • Monthly memberships: ~$65-120 per month. Most places offer unlimited classes to their members. Be sure to check for this.
  • One-on-one personal training: This varies a lot but usually costs around $50 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 🔔

There are some world class boxing gyms in Salt Lake City. With places like Reyes KO, Fullmer Boxing Gym, Factum, Fight City and others, you have plenty of proper boxing gyms to train at where you’ll learn the true art of the sport. Get me on the next flight to SLC!

Happy fighting!🥊🥊
