We believe boxing clubs are about so much more than just sports, health and fitness. Going 'Beyond Boxing' Bronx will impact the community and
change lives in ways that you never thought
a boxing club could...here's how.
more than a gym,
bigger than boxing
Bronx Boxing Club was opened in 2023 by Marnie Swindells, a gold-medal-winning boxer, award-nominated coach and a BBC Apprentice Winner.
After walking into a boxing club at the age of 17, she was sent on a trajectory that saw her strike gold, become a barrister and reach the final on one of the biggest shows on British television. Marnie believes that she owes it all to boxing. Bronx was born out of her desire to let the world know about the magic of boxing clubs and now she's on a mission to bring boxing to the masses and launch a boxing empire.

boxing belongs to everyone, always
What if you went your whole life not knowing how it feels to punch your heart out on a heavy bag and feel the weight of the world lift from your shoulders? Not if we have anything to do with it! We believe everyone should experience that magic that goes on behind the doors of a boxing club, whether you aspire to be the next world champion or just looking for a release there is a bag reserved for you. Rooted in a sense of community Bronx will champion togetherness, encourage collaboration and give people a sense of belonging that no other gym could. Boxing may be a one-man sport but becoming a part of Bronx means you'll never have to fight alone again. As the saying goes, if you want to go quick go alone, if you want to go far, go to....Bronx.
changING BODIES, CHANGING MINDS,
Going beyond boxing by bringing a sense of community, excitement and empowerment to people who want more than just a gym whilst inspiring the industry to see the fitness spaces as vessels for changing trajectories, not just bodies.
Bronx strives to fight stereotypes, challenge conventions and strike out at a fitness industry that focuses more on selling six packs than it does feelings. Bronx will stand alone as it empowers minds as much as it does bodies, amplifying the idea that fitness is only one side of the story. We know that there is something magical that happens deep inside boxing clubs, something that goes far beyond boxing, where people from all walks of life come together, find common ground and build communities that have the power to create real change.
REWRITE THE NARRATIVE ON WHAT GYMS REALLY DO
Our tagline Beyond Boxing perfectly encapsulates all that we are; an authentic, hearty boxing club with a passion for being something bigger. It represents our vision to create a gym that transcends fitness by empowering lives, changing stories and bringing people together through boxing.
Real boxing, real gym, real deal. Even if you have no plans to step in between the ropes, we want you to feel like a champion and that means teaching accurate skills in a hearty boxing club with passionate qualified coaches.
Box alone, fight together. We want to use our gym as a place where the community can come together and feel and sense of belonging. A boxing club you can call home and friends you can call family. Everyone is welcome, always.
It all starts with here. Boxing is all about respect. Respect for your each other, respect for the gym, respect for your opponent and most importantly respect for yourself.
