I checked out 2 local gym's earlier one of them quoted me $50 a month for a membership with access to both ring's,the bag's,and equipment.
and the other one quoted me $70 a month with unlimited gym time and a 1 day class every month to any of there cardio session's.They got personal trainer's in each place which are $40 a hour for 1 hour session's and they have special classes deticated to pad work and **** like that which is also $40 a class or 101 with a trainer for $40.I was wondering if any of you guy's out there pay for personal trainer's? if so how much are you paying a month between all your fee's to compete as a amateur or in any tournament's? how necessary is it to spend $500-$800 a month for personal training?I train in my own enviorment i have a heavy bag a speed bag and sparring partner but i wanna compete soon enough but the money is a issue.

what a rip. Go to a ghetto gym, mine was $25 a month when I went. The only downside is if they dont think youre good theyll barely train you.

Yea that gym in my neighborhood is funded by the P.a.L and it's free but i was trying to get in to another one that isnt so crowded because they have very little equipmet and it's all banged up so i checked out a few with in 10-15 mile's of me to get in to a better atmosphere but they sound like there asking a arm and a leg.

40 (Cdn) a month, which isn't bad. Not too much individual attention though, really only 2 hours a week, other than that the "competitors" mostly train themselves, with the trainers helping out when/where they can.

Right in there with Versy. I pay about $110. But my gym is a nonprofit org that gives out free boxing lessons to underprivileged kids, holds free rape prevention classes, etc. I'm fine with paying it because I can see where it's going; the gym has a rep as an upstanding member of the neighborhood. Plus, I've seen the car our gym owner drives. He's not exactly getting rich.

And besides, it's cheaper than therapy. :boxing:

I pay 3 (UK Sterling) per session. I think that's around $2.50 maybe. We have three coaches and about 14 of us who train per session. :boxing:

$150 a month, and that comes with an unlimited group boxing class membership, and one on one training with their trainers from 4pm-8pm Monday - Friday.


This is with a 6 month commitment. Its more if you want to do 3 months, or month to month.

I've seen pics of the gym Vers is gonna be going to. It's state of the art, new. Tons of equipment, includes a trainer. Very nice indeed.

I pay 35 a month for the membership to the small gym that we are in now. Its a Cuts Fitness gym. And I pay the trainer 25 a week. Its expensive, but worth it because its just one on one. Me and the trainer, so he sees all of my mistakes and corrects me. Sometimes I go a few weeks without him asking for money either. Hes a nice guy.

I just started at a gym in Fairfax. I'm happy with the coaches so far and the price is not cheap but I've done some looking and i think its the best I've found around here. Its 100 a month for two sessions a week. They're not 1on1 but the groups are small (3-6 for the ones I've been to) and the two instructors are both really good and give everyone lots of feedback/ corrections. If you're interested I'll give you some more details (after I check on their referral incentives;)
