BRISBANE BOXING

Frequently Asked Questions

We’re not just another Boxing Club.  We’re a Community, a Family, and a place where you belong.

Do I need to book before I come?

As our classes will only have limited spaces available, ALL OF OUR MEMBERSHIPS (including passes) are required to book before coming in. Classes are available through booking only via our website and our own Brisbane Boxing mobile app.

What equipment do I need?

We require all class participants to have their own wraps, gloves, and towel as a minimum requirement. If you do not have your own wraps or gloves, they are available for purchase at each of our West End, Mt Gravatt, and Carina gyms.

We do also stock a wide range of UBOX gear for those that would like to invest in their own equipment.

How fit do I need to be?

Our classes are designed to cater for all skill and fitness levels, so we encourage everyone to try to the best of their ability, regardless of fitness or experience.

I have never boxed before, is that okay?

We welcome all people, it doesn’t matter if you have never boxed a day in your life. We will help you with technique and you will develop skills as you train.

What should I wear?

We recommend you wear comfortable active wear, and enclosed sneakers.

Please bring a towel, and make sure you bring your hand wraps and gloves – these are available for purchase at all gym locations if you don’t already have them.

Are children allowed?

Yes- children from 12 can train at any of our classes. We do require a parent or guardian to sign a waiver form prior to attending, for any children under 18 years of age.

Children from aged 10 can attend our classes while accompanied by a parent or guardian.

All participants including children must have hand wraps.

Do you have shower facilities?

Our Mt Gravatt and West End gyms have mens and womens showers. Our Carina gym only has toilet facilities at the moment.

Can I train by myself when the classes are on?

Class participants do have priority on all equipment during class times, so the use of equipment is subject to approval by the trainer

How often would I need to train?

It all depends on you! We have members that train most days with us & others that only attend a few sessions per month. It comes down to time, goals, and how your body feels.

Do I have to spar?

Sparring isn’t a requirement as part of training, any sparring will need to be approved by coaches.

Can anyone spar?

As sparring requires experience and skill, sparring is subject to the approval of the coach only.

Are ladies welcome?

Absolutely! We pride ourselves on being welcoming to all people. The majority of our Cardio Box classes are women, and we have a number of female boxing trainers on our Brisbane Boxing team.

Do you provide refunds?

We do not refund any membership or pass payments unless they were erroneous or otherwise noted. There are no refunds or exchanges on any worn merchandise, gloves, or anything that has been worn. We also do not refund 3, 6, and 12 month memberships if not used.
