“The Boxing Club is taking a more customer-oriented approach than ever before. We are renovating both UTC and Kearny Mesa locations to make our clients feel more comfortable, and we are reforming the membership contract system to allow more flexibility for our clients. We are also restructuring our Muay Thai program to appeal to broader audience, and we have already initiated a strong MMA program, which is led by a UFC veteran, Shannon Gugerty. On top of all these, we still pride ourselves on the best team of coaches for boxing, Muay Thai, MMA, Jiu Jitsu and cardio classes in San Diego,” said Patrick Van Schoote, the new owner and CEO of The Boxing Club. “The club has been around since 1999; it has always been known for its inviting, social, and friendly atmosphere and top notch training team that has genuine interest in clients being healthy and fit. It is not just a place to work out. We are looking to bring that back,” he added.

The Boxing Club has been providing fitness enthusiasts with the top combat-based fitness programs since 1999. It caters to professional fighters, as well as the mainstream weight loss-, endurance-, strength building- and self defense-oriented customers.

The Muay Thai program is lead by Caine Gayle, Josh Vongsverates and Artem Sharoshkin, US Welterweight Muay Thai Champion. The Boxing Club is also in a process of acquiring one of the former Lumpini champions and internationally recognized coach to give aspiring fighters an edge whether in professional or amateur phase of their career. Details to follow.

The boxing program is headed by Gustavo Pugliese, a famed striking coach of legendary MMA Champion, Dan Henderson (Team Quest).
