The Gym

Sheffield Boxing Centre GYM Glyn Rhodes MBE

The Sheffield Boxing Centre gym is based in Hillsborough on Burton Street in the old school building. We've been here now for around 17 years which has seen a huge number of aspiring boxers walk through our doors and into the ring. Inside the gym we've kitted the place out with 2 regulation sized rings, 32 punch bags, a speed ball, exercise mats, a whole load of weights & medicine balls and, most importantly, blood, sweat and tears.
