The West End Boxing club was established in May 1991 by Harry Costi and Paul Rees. This old school gym continued to thrive after change of ownership by the Nasir brothers and became a popular boxing gym attracting amateur and professional boxers, students, athletes, sporting teams, corporates, mums and dads and many others.
Brisbane Boxing originated at the iconic West End Boxing club when brothers Khuram and Kamran Nasir, former several times boxing champions, took over the boxing club in February 2010. In August 2011 Brisbane Boxing expanded to the South Side opening a larger, more contemporary style boxing gym located in Mt Gravatt, boasting six boxing rings, 76 boxing bags, weights area, kettlebells and strength conditioning area.
October 2013 West End relocated into a bigger space to 41 Vulture street, West End. Still maintaining its old School traditional family feel mixed with a modern edge featuring 39bags, full-size UbOX boxing ring and a Box’d Espresso bar for the coffee lovers and the socialites.
The West End Club is less than 2km from the Brisbane CBD and the Mt Gravatt boxing club is centrally located on the South Side and just 2minutes from Garden City Shopping centre and 10 minutes from Brisbane City. A new chapter was written in 2014 when our Bulimba Gym opened in May.
We don’t require bookings, you can come to any class that suits you. We do recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the class time, if it is your first visit. You can also register online to speed up the process.
We require all members to wear hand wraps as a minimum requirement- these can be purchased at the gym, and our friendly staff can help you with wrapping technique. Boxing gloves can be borrowed for free at the gym, however we do also stock a wide range of UBOX gear for those that would like to invest in their own equipment.
Our classes are designed to cater for all skill and fitness levels, so we encourage everyone to try to the best of their ability, regardless of fitness or experience.
We welcome all people, it doesn’t matter if you have never boxed a day in your life. We will help you with technique and you will develop skills as you train.
We recommend you wear comfortable active wear, and enclosed sneakers. Please bring a towel, and make sure you bring your hand wraps- these are available for purchase at all gym locations if you don’t already have them.
