I was lost and stuck when I hung up my gloves after a 17 year competitive career.
Since the age of 10, boxing has been my whole life.
I’d enjoyed a successful amateur career, winning medals at every level - including a Bronze at the 2008 Olympic Games and a European Gold. I was 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.
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.
Until I stumbled across a personal trainer on Santa Monica beach who was running a boxing fitness class.
I couldn’t believe how popular it was.
I realized immediately that there was a high demand for boxing fitness in Los Angeles...
But, expert boxing fitness coaches were in short supply.
So, in 2012 I started a donation-only, boxing Bootcamp on Santa Monica bluffs, with my friend, and personal trainer, Kevan Watson.
We named 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 correct technique.
We opened our first Box 'N Burn gym in Santa Monica - I invested all the money I had left from my boxing earnings into converting an empty warehouse. We were soon awarded ‘The #1 Gym In California’ by Mens’ Fitness and ‘LA’s Best Boxing Gym’ by Timeout.
Business continued to grow, with the help of popular fitness professional, Glenn Holmes, I 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 performed by professional boxers and how to become successful at teaching boxing to others. The Academy has grown to become the world’s leading boxing fitness education program, we've taught thousands worldwide.
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.
Along with running Box 'N Burn gyms, coaching clients and fitness professionals, I work as a fight coordinator for TV, film, and music videos.
Since my forced retirement 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. I can help you too.
