YOU MUST BE VACCINATED

To Enter The Gym, Starting on June 15

Gleason's Gym has always strived to offer our members the safest and best boxing training facility. To that end, we want to be among the first gyms to require all of our members who come to train to be fully vaccinated.

Starting on June 15, there will be no entry into Gleason's Gym without a vaccination. We are giving everyone who trains here one month, until June 15, to complete their vaccinations including any waiting period. Proof of your vaccination must be shown upon entry and will be recorded on your member profile.   

At that time, masks & social distancing will no longer be required unless directed by federal, state, or city government. 

All trainers and staff at the gym will be fully vaccinated as well.

Jo Ellen Van Ouwerkerk, one of our gym regulars, is a Surrealist Artist based in New York City. Most of the images are simply a frozen private moment. One frame of a film of someone’s life captured by rituals. Jo Ellen has been influenced by The Police Gazette, Mexican Ex-Votos, everything Victorian and all the Surrealists. But who hasn’t?

The Cathedral Of Boxing 

Meet Bruce Silverglade

President, Gleason's Gym

Over the last thirty years, Bruce Silverglade has been busy keeping one of boxing’s grandest traditions alive. He is the driving force behind Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn, a boxing treasure since 1937.

One of the last of New York City’s thriving boxing gyms, Gleason’s has been the training headquarters for such legends as Jake LaMotta, Muhammad Ali and Roberto Duran. In all, 131 World Champions have trained inside the gym’s hallowed walls. Currently five active title holders workout at Gleason’s as well as numerous contenders and dozens of Golden Gloves champions. And yes, women train at Gleason’s too.

BROOKLYN BOXING NEWS

COME TO THE GYM

The oldest gym of its kind in New York City is all new, and more popular than ever.

Eighty years after it was founded in the heart of the Bronx, The Hub at 149th St. and Third Ave., and three decades after arriving in Brooklyn, Gleason’s Gym is thriving in new quarters in the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge.

“It’s busier now than it’s ever been,” says owner Bruce Silverglade. “It’s a good thing.”
