Rough 'n' ready characterises this laid-back boozer, where mish-mash reigns free and the beer flows all day long. Satisfying a traditionalpub…

    I have always wanted to try boxing as a way to change up my fitness routine. The coaches Alex and Dan are friendly and very helpful towards new boxers. They always encourage you to do your best. This classes always leaves me feeling energized and relieved from stress through the release of endorphins, yet tired because the workouts are SO amazing. If group classes aren’t your thing, DON’T WORRY, they got you covered with one-on-one training options too, and only female classes. Highly recommend GMT to everyone.
