Boxing gyms have long been male-dominated territory, but this gym at Dundas and Carlaw changed all that when it first opened with cis women- and trans women- only classes, along with some co-ed sessions.

9Round Beaches

Workouts here incorporate kickboxing skills for the ultimate leaning and toning regimen, with no set class times. You can show up at their Leslieville or Beaches locations any time you want for a class with nine workout stations—hence the name. Plus it only lasts 30 minutes.

Find this gym inside the George Bell Arena on St. Clair West. This is a traditional gym in the sense that there are classes for aspiring boxers of all levels, plus tons of workout machinery.


Kingsway Boxing Club

All good boxing gyms should look like an auto shop from the outside, am I right? Head to this gym right by Royal York station for a session with experienced coaches in their olympic size ring.

Clancy's Boxing Academy

Clancy's Boxing Academy

Located by Eglinton and O'Connor, this massive gym is equipped with great change rooms, tons of punching bags, and two floors, with a studio and strength training equipment upstairs.

Boasting itself as the place where champions are made, this gym is the only training centre in Toronto to have trained an Olympic gold medalist. Find it just a stone's throw from Yorkdale Mall.

West End Athletic Club

West End Athletic Club

Head to this friendly gym just off of Islington for a welcoming place to get your ass kicked. Fancier than your quintessential Mighty Mick’s kind of gym, West End AC’s facility has a foyer equipped with leather chairs and a ‘rejuvenation centre’ offering juice and espressos.
