Worst Gym in the Triangle! – Like the previous review, I also had a bad experience with LA Boxing. Thankfully, I opted to pay per month instead of a yearly contract. I even tried to get my monthly fee back 2 days after starting. Its really THAT bad. I was lied to about the gym being a real boxing gym. In reality it is just a regular old gym that charges $75 a month and tries to nickle and dime you for everything. They don't teach ANY boxing unless you pay some huge HOURLY rate. Its ridiculous. As if I thought my gym couldn't get bad enough, look at this email I just got from the gym manager.
As of Monday May 24th we will be charging a $3.00 rental fee for the use of gloves. We will be offering you gloves at a discount of $64.99 until the end of May. As of June 1st our gloves will be the regular rate of $84.99. A $20.00 savings if you buy now.
Our loaner gloves are only meant to be used for the first few classes. If you have any questions please feel free to ask us. We look forward to seeing all of you in the gym on a consistent basis reaching your goals.

WOW. This gym is now CHARGING for the use of boxing gloves. As if the $75 a month wasn't enough, now you must pay to use gloves. I mean, do they even want customers? This is equivalent to a fitness gym having a quarter slot to use the elliptical.
Just for reference, the gloves they charge $85 for, you could easily get for under $20. Not great gloves, but definitely better than their $85 crap. If you want good gloves, buy Ringside IMF gloves. They will run around $60. Very very high quality.
Back on this gym. This place is a joke. As you can see form their penny pinching and other reviews, their interest is in making money and not customer service. Stay far far away.
Fraud Company. Not true boxing gym. LA Boxing is a joke – LA Boxing is a fraud. I moved to NC recently and was looking for a new boxing gym to replace mine in Virginia. The only thing I found available was "LA Boxing". LA Boxing promised a true boxing gym with sparring sessions every night and personal one on one teaching from boxers. I was wined and dined into a 1 year contract.
Big mistake. This place is a joke. LA Boxing isn't a boxing gym. Its a glorified women's fitness center. The sparring sessions I was promised? Yea, they only happen once a week during an ackward time. What about the one on one teaching? Oh thats $50 for 30 minutes.
Worst of all. Within two months of starting my membership, I bought a new house 20 miles away from LA Boxing. In Raleigh/Durham Traffic, 20 miles can take upwards of an hour. So pretty much I couldn't go to the gym anymore. I politely talked to the manager at LA Boxing to see if we could work out a deal. They didn't want to. All they would repeat is "You signed a contract". Wouldn't work with me at all. I even offered to pay half my contract(I had 10 months left). Half my contract was $400. Thats a good chunk of change to NOT go to a gym. Nope. They wanted the full $800 of the contract and weren't budging. Their contract stated I would have to move 25 miles. I was 20 miles. They didn't care I couldn't come. They just wanted their money.
I understand we all need money to get by. I understand they can't just let people get off their contracts for no reason, but when you move 20 miles away and have proof of actually buying a new house, I would think that would be enough resources to get out. Not in LA Boxing's opinion. They care nothing about people. They lied to get me into their piece of crap gym and now even when I can't use their crappy gym they still want my money. Have fun with the bad publicity!
