Boutique Rathbone Boxing Club opens in London

A boxing club looking to bridge the gap between authentic boxing training and a boutique fitness experience has launched in London.

With a stated USP of being "steeped in the heritage of the sport of boxing", Rathbone Boxing Club has set out to deliver the spirit of the traditional, spit-and-sawdust boxing gym – but with the added comforts of a boutique setting.

Located on Rathbone Street in the heart of London’s Fitzrovia, the venue has been kitted out with a boxing ring, punch bags, speedballs, skipping ropes and all the equipment associated with traditional boxing training.

It will also offer a range of classes, workshops and bespoke training delivered by a team of coaches, led by professional boxing trainer Adam Booth.

During his career, Booth has worked with the likes of David Haye, Andy Lee and Ryan Burnett and has helped curate the class programme with Rathbone Boxing Club founder Manya Klempner.

“The demand for boxing based fitness is stronger than ever, but we noticed there is no middle ground – the choices are either the boxing “inspired” studio, or the traditional, gritty clubs which are full of soul but can be intimidating," Klempner said.

“Our club is different to anything else on the UK market.

"It captures the authenticity of a spit-and-sawdust boxing gym with a modern update, including warm showers, a clean environment, friendly staff, great music and top of the range training facilities.

"Most importantly, our focus is instruction. It is a place for people to come and learn boxing technique. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a pro, there is something for everyone and we’ll encourage you every step of the way.”

Adam Booth added: “The Rathbone programme has taken months of careful planning.

"We are providing training to suit all levels, and the techniques and elements of this training are the ones I have used with my previous, current and future World Champions.”
