We Put Success in Your Hands

“If you prefer a gym that’s a glorified spa, look elsewhere. But if you want to train like a pro, then go where actual professionals work out. In the case of boxing, that’s Peter Welch’s Gym.

Hidden in a warehouse in Southie, it’s old-school, with real rings, real equipment, and real fighters leading each class. You’ll learn proper punching and evasive techniques while getting the best workout of your life.”

– Boston Magazine (in naming Peter Welch’s Gym Best of Boston)
