Gleason’s Gym is the oldest active boxing gym in the USA. We have been open since 1937, and are currently in our fourth home, in the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge, in the area now affectionately known as DUMBO.
The gym is 13,000 square feet, with 14 feet ceilings. There are 15 windows, which allow natural and direct sunlight daily. The windows are 80 inches tall by 40 inches wide. Florescent lighting is available at all other times. The gym walls are painted red with black columns and gray floors. There are numerous electrical outlets.
There are 4 full size boxing rings, and one full size wrestling ring. There are a number of hanging bags of varying sizes, double end bags and uppercut bags. A selection of cardio equipment is also available including treadmills, steppers and stationery bikes. We have an assortment of free weights.
Trainers and fighters, both male and female, are also available for consultation or extra work. Our specialists include World champion boxing trainers, a World Champion Kick boxing trainer and a World Champion Muay Thai Boxing trainer.
We have a variety of office suites available. These include executive workplaces and traditional boxing offices complete with fantastic collections of boxing memorabilia you will not find anywhere else in the World! The offices can also double up as private changing or make up rooms.
Both Male and Female locker rooms are on the premises and include lockers, benches and showers.
The gym is on the ground level. The loading dock is available twenty fours a day, seven days a week.
