I believe boxing is one of the best things you can do, not just for your body, but for your mind tooTony Jeffries
When I hung up my boxing gloves after a 17 year competitive career I was stuck.
Boxing has been my whole life since the age of 10.
I’d enjoyed a successful amateur career, winning medals at every level, including a Bronze at the 2008 Olympic Games, a European Gold, and had been an undefeated and promising professional.
But sadly, my time in the ring came to an abrupt end in 2012 after a hand injury forced me into retirement.
At the time, I was devastated. I had just moved to Los Angeles, and didn’t have a clue what I was going to do with my life.
But one afternoon, I saw a personal trainer running a boxing fitness class at Santa Monica beach.
I couldn’t believe how popular it was.
I realized that not only was there a high demand for boxing fitness in Los Angeles...
But expert boxing fitness coaches were in short supply.
In 2012 I decided to start a donation-only, boxing Bootcamp on Santa Monica bluffs, with my friend, and personal trainer, Kevan Watson.
We called it Box ‘N Burn.
Box ‘N Burn quickly grew as a community of passionate fitness enthusiasts, all eager to get in great shape using boxing and learn proper techniques.
Soon after, I put all the money I had left from boxing into an empty warehouse in Santa Monica and we opened up our first Box 'N Burn gym, which was later awarded ‘The #1 Gym In California’ by Mens’ Fitness and ‘LA’s Best Boxing Gym’ by Timeout.
Things continued to grow and with the help of popular fitness professional, Glenn Holmes, we developed the Box 'N Burn Academy in 2015 – a boxing fitness education program, designed to teach fitness professionals how to coach the same boxing workouts you see performed by professional boxers. We’ve taught thousands of people all over the globe how to become successful at teaching boxing to others. The academy has grown to become the world’s leading boxing fitness education programme.
In early 2021, we launched Tony Jeffries Connect a digitally programmed boxing workout that enables gyms all over the world to add boxing fitness to their class schedules.
In addition to running Box 'N Burn gyms, coaching clients and fitness professionals, I also work as a fight coordinator for TV, film, and music videos. Since I was forced to retire from professional boxing in 2012, I’ve used boxing to help millions of people from all walks of life with my gyms, training courses, and social media platforms.
Hopefully, I can help you too.
