Old school style meets the brave new world

Boxing Central is a place where old school style meets the brave new world. Based in Footscray, with the city of Melbourne and docks on its doorstep, the gym has the gritty atmosphere of traditional boxing gyms but with a contemporary feel that welcomes all-comers, women especially.

Men are a big part of this sport and always will be however, it is the sport that has pride of place at Boxing Central. The first class is always free and with no lock in contracts there is no excuse not to come by and see how Boxing Central suits you. Make no mistake, this is an authentic boxing gym. But what makes it unique is that it is owned and run by a woman.
