Any help here would be appreciated.
wassup man.. i fight with the Yonkers PAL andf its a free gym.. but if u have no experience at 21 years old they wont take you .. Morris Park gym is a good club in the Bronx it might cost you some dough but maybe train there for a year or so and get some experience and then come to a PAL with som experience

That's cool. Where in Yonkers is it? I live uptown Bronx, by the Yonkers border. Morris park is descent, I've checked it out before, but same case, can't really afford it. How do I know when I have enough experience to go to the Yonkers PAL?

do what i did... i wanted to get into boxing when i was 19 and i called yonkers pal and they deaded me .. i didnt start until last april but i was living out in queens and i went to a gym out there that was pretty pricey .. i got about 8 months exp. there was doing alot of sparring i came back to yonkers and i told them i was fight ready and they took me .. im 2-0 now and i got a tournament this week..

its a good gym but u gotta work hard.. if the trainers see u just coming in and going thru the motions then taking 2 weeks off coming back for a couple days back and forth they aint gonna waste time with you

the yonkers pal is right outside getty square on north broadway

Great, I'll see what I can do. I'm definitely ready to work hard. I started running recently, I figured I'd get started so by the time I land in a gym, I'm half way conditioned. I live like 5 minutes from getty square, so this is perfect for me. I'll check around and see if I can get something very cheap or something. Congrats on your wins, and good luck in the tournament!

The trinity gym? I work right by the WFC so I see it when I walk to the 1 train. I occasionally will stop by the window and check out what kind of work the people in there are up to since that gym has somewhat of a high reputation (with Cotto training there prior his Clottey fight).

Now in regards to the started of this thread. I box (well used to and planning on returning soon because I NEED to be in the golden gloves this year) at Morris Park boxing club. Theres alot! of good gyms you could look into but I'll be pretty biased towards my club and trainer Lupin =p

Numerous PAL'S have good gyms. . Theres Gleasons gym, Kingsway, Trinity. . There is tons of GOOD gyms in New York it is just the matter of searching for them.

I've looked at all those gyms, but I really have no money for ANY of them. My parents are on public assistance and I am a full time student. So I am trying to figure out a way to start boxing with all the huge expenses. That's my biggest concern. I'm as poor as they get, haha.

I dont think all of PAL's will deny you if you dont have enough experience. Check out some other PAL's and see if you can use them. The PAL I use in jersey city lets anyone come and try out boxing.

Sounds like a plan, I'll check out some boxing video and maybe read more threads so I'll at least sound believable if I go, haha. I guess going down there and giving it a shot won't hurt. It's by Getty Square?

Also, Jordaw, how far into Jersey is your PAL? If all else fails, I guess I'll have to put in that 8 bucks for the GW. I'd definitely like to check it out too. I'm going to keep searching as well.

my gym is a few blocks away from the path station in journal square at jersey city. its at fairview avenue and you get to it by walking down bergen street. It has some great trainers their and which is why I go there despite the fact that it is two and a half hours away from me. if you live in nyc by the world trade center or thirty fourth street, twenty fourth street, 14 street, 9 street, or christopher street you could take the path station to journal square and walk over there so the trip will only cost you 1.75 to get on the path train. In my opinion it is a great gym but pm me if you think you want to go over there and i will tell you when its open and the address and all that.

Thanks. I'll definitely let you know when I'm going to head over there. Right now my schedule is shaky. Today is the first day of classes here at school. So I'll let you know in a week or two when I'll be dropping by!


I don't hear all that great things about Gleason's. Plus, there's a crazy fee.

Well, no luck. I can't find any gyms near by.....I can't afford any transportation either, so New Jersey is out of the question. Yonkers PAL declined me when I went over there. Juan Laporte's gym has a monthly fee. I don't know where to look anymore guys. I'm not good at giving up, but this I don't know where to go from here..........
