This gym works. I lost 20lbs in 6 weeks. The reason I came to South Beach Boxing was to look and feel better about myself. My goals were to lose weight and tone up and expected the classes to be hard and impossible for me to get to and to reach my goal in such a short period of time, but I was wrong. One thing you need to know about me is that I was never a gym person. It was hard for me to get up and say “I’m going to the gym today. “ To me it felt like too much work, not to mention having to go at least 4-5 times a week. But he classes and the instructors are phenomenal! After joining I feel great and get up and go without any hesitation about 5-6 times a week. What a major accomplishment and it feels even better to prove the people who didn’t believe in me…wrong! Also, the best part of South Beach Boxing is you cannot get bored. It’s like a giant playground. There are so many options from boxing/ kick boxing to cross training and cardio/weight machines if you like to tone up and yes, they have a boxing ring! Plus all the toys are available to me whenever I want. I can take a class or just workout on my own. How cool is that!?
The trainers and staff here at the South Beach Boxing encouraged me to not give up and to focus on my goal. My first class was hard and exhausting I’m not going to lie, but you feel great afterwards. Never have I sweat as much as I did in my first class. Loved it! They offered my friend to try out a free class for the first time so it made even more special for me. I was 149 lb when I started, body fat was 31% and now I’m 129 lb body fat 21% and still maintaining. Overall, I’m super happy with my results so far and not letting go of this is part of my life.

When I arrived in South Beach six years ago, I knew I wanted to join a gym. After looking around, my husband and I joined a local gym. After about a year, however, I realized it just wasn’t for me. I wanted more. I wanted a gym with boxing for sure and one where I felt welcomed and not just a number. I had just given birth to my daughter and was carrying around an extra 15-20 pounds. I took a few classes at South Beach and I was hooked. (In fact, I encouraged my husband to check it out, and after one class, we signed a contract and joined!)
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first started. They gym wasn’t like something out of a Rocky movie. But it wasn’t a boutique either. It was just right – in the middle – serious and fun! The first thing I noticed was the instructors. Not only are they knowledgeable but they have a knack for teaching as well. They are not condescending but encouraging. Eventually, I found myself at the gym nearly every night!
After a year, I was getting into the best shape of my life. I was shedding pounds and gaining muscle. I was finding strength that I didn’t know I had. Even the little things in my life became easier – like outrunning a toddler or running a 5K. After a while, I became curious about taking it a step further. Soon I found myself sparring! This too was a wonderful experience. It was taking my fitness to a new level. This gave me confidence and I got even stronger. Again, the trainers were helpful and knowledgeable.
It’s been four years now that I’ve been at South Beach Boxing and I’ve found myself doing even more. Not only does South Beach Boxing offer boxing and Crossfit, they also offer Muay Thai. And, yes, I’ve been doing this now for about a year. This has been taking me to an even higher level of fitness. It’s made the gym a second family and I’ve found a great group of friends!
If you’re considering a gym and want to get in amazing shape, you should give South Beach Boxing a try. You don’t have to take it as far as I’ve taken it. You can do the awesome boxing classes that have great energy and atmosphere. There are great trainers and plenty of bags for everyone. If you are dedicated, it will make a difference in your life.

I was referred to South Beach Boxing by a friend and decided to try it out for fun. That day I almost died, but I wanted to reach my goals and knew this is what I had to do, so I signed up for a year. Here I am 4 years later and it is part of my daily routine. At South Beach Boxing every class feels like you started for the first time. They are always different. The classes are intense, challenging and fun at the same time. The instructors really make sure you work out to your maximum ability. Stepping into South Beach Boxing was one of the best choices I’ve ever made. My body has never been so lean and toned. Thank you South Beach Boxing!

Right around the time when I decided to get active and get back in shape again, I accidentally found a flyer for South Beach Boxing on my windshield. Since the first class was free I figured it couldn’t hurt to give it a try. It was absolutely the best decision I could have made and I signed up that very same day. I started taking boxing classes two to three times a week to now taking Boxing and Muay Thai classes six days a week and even competing in Muay Thai. At 35 I am in the best shape of my life. Who would have ever thought that a simple flyer could bring so much positive change in my life…

South Beach Boxing is an excellent gym, training, and martial arts center. I’ve been to many gyms but none offer such diversity and camaraderie as South Beach Boxing. If you are looking for a place to get in shape, increase your fighting skill or just break a sweat, I would definitely recommend South Beach Boxing. I guarantee they offer great trainers, staff, and friends. Definitely a place to come and sweat, not look pretty.

I’ve never enjoyed working out this much; I hate missing even one day! I always get a phenomenal workout from the friendly staff of professional boxers and trainers. This is a real gym , for real people that have a true desire to improve the way they look and feel. South Beach Boxing is definitely not your typical run of the mill gym!

Before I joined South Beach Boxing I was only lifting weights. I didn’t do any cardio because running on the treadmill was boring. Now because I can take the classes or hit the heavy bag on my own, I’ve gotten into the best shape of my life. I am leaner than I was in collage!

When I first came to South Beach Boxing I was a little intimidated but after the first class the trainers and staff had made me feel right at home. I joined in June of 2003 and since then I have gone from sitting on the couch to working out everyday. I have been a member of many different gyms in the past but going to South Beach Boxing doesn’t feel like a chore, it is fun and very inviting.

A friend convinced me to try South Beach Boxing gym some years ago. At the time, I had a serious weight problem and probably was in the worst physical shape of my life.After my first class there, I was hooked.Whether you are interested in losing those extra pounds, or seeking a more challenging level, South Beach Boxing is the place for you I have been a member for 4 years now, and have lost 46 pounds. More importantly, at 37, I am in better shape than I was 10 years ago!.

It’s true! South Beach Boxing gym isn’t your normal gym. The trainers are very personable and motivational. They make you want to workout and actually like it. I feel like I’m missing out if I don’y go workout. I would have to admit that it is the best gym I’ve ever been a member of.

This place goes way beyond my expectations!
I’ve never had rhythm until I started to workout at South Beach Boxing. Working out is now fun and it gives me the energy to start a new day full of enthusiasm. Since I’ve started my kickboxing skills have improved and I’ve lost a lot of weight without having to diet. From all the sports I’ve done, I can honestly say working out at South Beach Boxing gives me the best rush.

Finally… Something I like!.
I’ve been here in South Beach Boxing for 3 weeks, before that I was playing basketball in Flamingo Park 4 times a week. Because I was a heavy smoer before, it was too hard for me to run and play my games. After 3 weeks of training at South Beach Boxing, I played basketball again in the same place. It was unbelievable! I was running without stopping and no need to rest. I gained a lot of strength and endurance in such a short time! All I can say is come and try, like I did, and if after a month it does not work, FIND ME!

Your Gym rocks! Luis, Alex, & Eddie are amazing trainers and all of your staff are such nice people. No wonder you guys are so successful as you are. Feel free to post this letter wherever you want to.

From the moment you step in, there is an energy like no other. Your staff really made me feel like “it’s ok” to be a beginner and made sure I was grasping the routines right as I hit the bag. It’s not only about dropping weight, but feeling exhilarated and toned!
I’m amazed of the strength and stamina I developed in such a short time (4 months). Weight isn’t my issue any more because every day I can see my muscles toning!

In Miami as a tourist, SBB was my other destination besides the beach, now as a resident it has become my second home.
Jolie, I wanted to take the time to thank you. Training at the gym again was so great! Your trainers are wonderful! I really wish there was a place here in NY like South Beach Boxing. People up here would love it.If you ever decide to expand out here to NY, let me know… I’d love to jump on board!.
My biggest regret of 2010 was not joining South Beach Boxing sooner! It has been the best decision I’ve made. i’m in better shape, have more energy, confidence and am stronger than I’ve ever been in years. I have lost almost 2 dress sizes and toned up in just the 4 short months I’ve been a member. The classes are great; all the instructors bring a different flavor which keeps the workouts interesting and challenging. Everyone here is serious about being fit and the energy level is always high. I feel great when I leave class in the evenings and great when I get dressed in the mornings and don’t have to think twice. i know I look good. Thank you South Beach Boxing…. you guys kick butt!
