Who are Total Boxer?
In 2011, popular London boxing coach, Matt Garcia, established Total Boxer - the UK's first Get Fit Not Hit® boutique boxing club; so the thrill and benefits of real boxing training could be enjoyed in a welcoming, non-threatening environment for everyone, especially complete beginners. Things have grown from there...
Do I need boxing experience?
Not at all. In fact, most of our members are absolute beginners and come to us having never put boxing gloves on before. It's always exciting for us to see the eyes-widen and faces light-up when the gloves hit the punch bags or the pads from one of our professional boxing coaches for the first time!
How fit should I be to start?
You don't need to be fit to start training at Total Boxer. It's our job to get you fit!
Most of the people that come to us for the first time need to work on their fitness. So, as long as you're in good general health we can get you where you want to be.
If you are pregnant or have recently undergone surgery you must seek advice from your doctor before training with us.
DO YOU DO BEGINNER CLASSES?
If you have never boxed before or would like a refresher on the boxing basics, our 30-minute Boxing for Beginners class is a great way for you to start your boxing journey.
By the end of the class you will have an excellent foundation to continue your boxing journey at Total Boxer®.
HOW DO I Get my 'FIRST CLASS FREE'?
What SHOULD I wear?
Just like going to the gym, we'd recommend you wear loose, breathable clothing. We'd suggest a spare t-shirt or hoody as you are likely to get seriously sweaty! Regular running trainers are fine, although we'd always suggest getting your own boxing shoes when you feel ready.
If you come to the Total Boxer Gym and wish to use the boxing ring, you must wear clean boxing boots.
What SHOULD I bring?
Just the will to work hard and enjoy your training! We provide all the equipment you need free of charge, including skipping ropes, boxing gloves. If you don't have boxing hand wraps you can buy them from our Online Shop, ready for collection from reception when you arrive.
We also provide yoga mats for BoxingYoga™, but you're welcome to bring your own.
At the Total Boxer Shop you'll find a range of boxing equipment, branded clothing and merchandise if you want to own your own gear.
WHERE IN NORTH LONDON IS TOTAL BOXER?
Our excellent North London boxing club is in Hornsey, within walking distance of Crouch End, Muswell Hill and Finsbury Park. For our address and contact info click here.
DO I NEED TO BE A MEMBER TO TRAIN AT TOTAL BOXER?
No you don't, but as a Total Boxer Member you get our best training prices, free guest passes, member-only special offers and much more. Take a look at our membership options and prices.
CAN I SHARE A PERSONAL TRAINING SESSION WITH A FRIEND?
Yes you can. Not only can you bring a friend to your personal training session, but we don't charge extra if you do. It's a great way to enjoy a really fun training experience - and share the cost!
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO USE MY TRAINING PACKAGES?
Unlike most gyms, whatever Pay As You Train package you buy lasts a full 12-months. We've been known to extend them a little on request, but you'll have to give us a good excuse or make up a hilarious story.
HOW DOES GYM use WORK?
You can use any of the facilities over our two floors, 7 days a week.
You don't need to book your slot ahead of time but you must check-in at reception on arrival. Once arrived you can stay for as long as you want while the club is open!

DO YOU HAVE CLASSES FOR KIDS?
How do I sign-up my child to Total Boxer Juniors?
Easy. Simply create an account in your child's name. You can add your payment details to buy the training and the classes will be booked in their name.
If you are already registered with us, you can link the accounts together.
How do Guest Passes work?
As a Total Boxer Member you get UNLIMITED Guest Passes so you can invite your friends or family to share in the thrill of classes at Total Boxer.
All they need to do is register and then you email email@example.com to tell us which class they want to join. One pass per person. Does not include gym use.
Do you have shower, locker and parking facilities?
We have a mixed 'dry' changing room with lockers, separate male/female toilets and shower rooms. Free parking is available on site and there is metered parking on neighbouring streets.
What is your cancellation policy?
Most clubs require at least 24-hours cancellation notice. But, that's not how we roll. If you need to cancel a class or personal training session we ask that you do so at least 12-hours prior to the start time, so it gives someone else the chance to take your place. Otherwise, we will have to mark your account as if you had attended.
Cancellations can be made by logging-in to your account in a web browser, or via the Total Boxer App.
If you have cancelled your class or personal training session more than 12-hours prior to your session, the training credit will go back in to your Total Boxer account so you can re-book another time.
WHAT IS THE WAITLIST AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you want to attend a class but it's fully booked, you can add yourself to the 'Waitlist'. If someone cancels their booking no less than 1 hour prior to the class start time, and you are next on the list, you will be automatically added to the class and we'll send you an email and text message to let you know*.
If you were on the Waitlist and didn't get added to the class, the credit will go back in your Total Boxer account so you can use it another time.
Total Boxer has the most popular boxing fitness training classes in North London and most of our evening and weekend classes require booking at least a week in advance, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
If you do book early and then can't make the class for any reason, you must cancel the booking so that someone else has the opportunity to take your place.
*This is a free service, but you must have the 'text message and email notification' option in your Total Boxer account turned on.
IS YOUR WEBSITE SAFE AND SECURE?
It certainly is. The Total Boxer website is verified compliant for safety and security by Trustwave and we were the first boxing club in the UK to incorporate MINDBODY ONLINE, the world's leading state-of-the-art gym management software.
