We aspire to be the first choice for anyone wishing to access authentic, high-intensity, non-contact group boxing fitness classes in the UK; and also the partner of choice for existing boxing gyms, trainers, and youth support charities in the UK.
Our co-founders, Bear and Alex, are life-long best friends, and share a passion for sport, helping others, and bringing people together from all walks of life.
Bear is the heart and soul of the venture, with a passion for endurance events and white-collar boxing. His professional background is in property, and since 2008 he has played an integral role in organising the boxing training behind premier white-collar boxing events in London.
Alex is the commercial mind, with a passion for amateur sport, and creating high-performance commercial cultures and organisations with a deep social conscience. His professional background is in corporate finance, he holds an MBA from London Business School, and he was a former professional cricketer.
In 2008, Bear was preparing for his first white-collar boxing fight, and went to Fitzroy Lodge to train, dragging Alex with him when he could. There they met Mark Reigate, the head coach, and started to develop their passion for the sport. In late 2015, Bear and Alex decided to turn that passion into a business venture, and called it Power of Boxing.
Initially starting out at Fitzroy Lodge in Lambeth, they expanded into their second site at Carney’s Community in Battersea in early 2016, and have exciting plans for more site roll-outs over the coming months – watch this space!
