I am fortunate enough to have a job which allows me to work from home most days of the week. Working from home means.. waking up, logging in to your computer, working, then sleeping! The downside? Very minimal physical activity involved and lots of access to the fridge. It sounds very ideal to some people but you can just imagine the effect of that on your health and weight. Because of this I tried exercising once in a while. I tried joining fun runs but me being not a morning person makes it really hard to wake up early in the morning. I also tried going to the gym but the treadmill and stationary equipment bore me and I don’t like weights. I tried badminton but I need regular playmates sharing the same schedule as me. All seems to fail but one day, a friend of mine posted a photo of him boxing on Facebook. I asked where it was and it turns our it was just near our village! This is it! I have always been curious about boxing but I the number of gyms are limited.
I Immediately looked them up on Facebook and messaged the owner Jo Tomas for the details, the rates, and the gears I need to start training. And in no time I was started training at Conqueror’s Boxing Gym. OH, this place is not only for boxing, they also teach Muay Thai! Cool!
Ideally you have to have your own gears to start training but for beginners who want to try it first to see if they will like it, they can use the common gloves in the gym. But you should at least have your own hand wraps for proper hygiene (It gets sweaty in there!). As for me I bought my own Gloves and Hand Wraps.
You will be assisted by a skilled trainer during your sessions. From warm-up to cool down. Their trainer profiles are as follows:
Ronnie Magramo (Boxing Coach)
World Boxing Federation (WBF) Minimumweight (105 lbs) CHAMPION 1994-2001
Arvin Magramo (Boxing Coach)
Luzon Professional Boxing Association (LuzProBa) Junior Flyweight (108 lbs) CHAMPION 1993-1998
Ramil Cabalhin (Boxing & Muay Thai Coach)
Professional boxer and Muay Thai fighter
Here’s Conqueror’s Boxing and Muay Thai Training Rates. In my opinion, these are super affordable since other gyms charge you 400-500 per training session.
My first training day was super tiring. I was heavily catching my breath! Expect body pains a few days after your first session. But I loved it. I enjoy the training and it fits with my schedule. My main priority at the moment is to improve my cardiovascular stuff and loose some weight. :) I find training here super fun, people are friendly, the coaches are highly skilled and I get to punch something. Having a hard day? This is the ultimate stress buster! You get to punch something/someone – in my case, coach Arvin :) I have yet to loose weight but I am sure this is better than just sitting all day in front of a computer.
Here are some photos of the gym and training sessions:
Remember, on your first visit:
- Bring your own gloves (or borrow one from the gym)
- Bring your own hand wraps (or buy one from the gym)
- Bring Extra Clothes
- Expect Body Pains :)
- They have a small shower/toilet/changing area
- Expect to get tired, Super Tired
- One session lasts 1-2 hours.
It is a bit tricky to find the place. Especially if you are not familiar with the are. But If your are from Las Pinas my instruction will make sense a bit.
If you are coming from Moonwalk in Alabang Zapote Road Go straight to Marcos Alvarez, you will then see Shell Gas Station on the right side and Las Pinas Medical Center on the left side. Pass by it just a little, there is a small street leading to the gym. Behind a Funeral Parlor in front of a Church. The Gym is on the Second Floor.
Well, if you are looking for a Boxing Gym in Las Pinas, you may want to try Conqueror’s Boxing Gym. Say Hi if you see me there! hehe! :)
Hanggang sa muli, Paalam!
