It sounds like a cliche, but this place is not just a gym, it is a way of life. It is a family affair. The gym owners run the place as a family. There are almost always children around, from grade schoolers all the way down to baby's who are watching their pro dads (it's usually dads). From aspiring golden glove yunguns to fit older gentlemen, this gym is open to anyone who loves boxing and wants to work hard improving their skills.
As a woman boxer, I felt at home almost from day one. I'm usually the only woman training, but I've never felt that to be a problem. Almost without exception, the men who train there are gentlemen and have treated me both with respect and friendship. Again, all that matters is a love of the sport.
As a student, I disappear for months at a time during breaks, but whenever I'm back in Philly, I can't wait to get back to the gym. Having such a solid community makes you commit to your training. If my trainer Khalil weren't there asking me when I was coming in next, I don't know how many times I would have just opted to stay home and work a little longer or just laze around. This place makes training a lifestyle.
