The Grealish Boxing Club is a family run boxing gym right in the heart of Dorchester, MA. It was founded by Martin Grealish, a former professional boxer who runs the gym along side his son Gerry and daughter Nicola. Once you join Grealish Boxing Club you immediately feel part of its family, it is a second home to many of its members. Martin takes a hands on approach and helps all his members get in the best shape and to reach their full potential in every way possible.

Amateur boxing builds respect, self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment. To successfully compete in amateur boxing, a person learns to confront their personal fears and engage in brutally honest and extensive self-evaluation. Amateur boxers learn attributes such as stamina, courage, desire and the endurance to outlast adversity. The beautiful thing about boxing is that once these lessons are learned, they serve as a frame of reference to draw from in their everyday lives and in their futures. → FIND OUT MORE

Boxing is no longer a male dominated sport, the spotlight is now turning to women boxers. Women who box love it for many of the same reasons guys do. Boxing requires intense physical and psychological discipline and the ability to overcome fear and anger.

At Grealish Boxing Club we have women's boxing classes twice a week and have many women members who train nightly. Boxing is a fantastic cardio workout, yet unlike most cardio, boxing uses your upper body to get your heart pumping and the sweat pouring off you. All members are treated equally at Grealish Boxing Club, if you have not already tried Boxing as a work out be sure to come down and see why so many fall in love with the sport. → FIND OUT MORE

The Grealish Boxing Club seeks to provide youngsters and young adults a positive alternative route to criminal actions such as theft, burglary, drugs and other street violence. The Grealish Boxing Club supervises all members during meetings, training and competitions, including registered athletes and coaches. The sport of amateur boxing has given them great hope where little existed, a path to follow, and in many fortunate cases, a hand to guide them toward a future they didn't know existed.

The Grealish Boxing Club realizes the importance of reaching out to our underprivileged youth who might otherwise be drawn into a self-destructive life of gangs, drugs, and violence. Our organization works with high-risk youngsters, under the direct supervision of our coaches who impart instruction and guidance not only in the sport of amateur boxing, but also cultivate our youth in the area of citizenship and developing a positive sense of self-esteem.

Martin, Gerry and Nicola Grealish work together as a team training the youth classes, with so much expertise between them you know your youth are in good hands at the Grealish Boxing Club. → FIND OUT MORE
