Empire Boxing Gym (UPDATED) | Sweating it All Out the Imperial Way!

Last weekend, I finally decided to go and hit the gym again after decades of contemplating to  get back to an active lifestyle. Empire Boxing is such a great choice. It’s not as high end as the other gym’s around the Metro so don’t expect too much, but try and surely you’ll get an imperial workout you’re looking for.


As it is said in one of the posts in their Facebook Page (, Empire Boxing is “Offering you balanced workouts depending on your demands. Do you wanna drop 10, 20 or 100lbs.? Do you want to fight as an amateur or professional? We go hardcore with you both ways. Yeah, you’re our champs like that. See you at your own personal weekend boot camp!”

Focus on the hardcore thing, yes! It’s really a hardcore workout even if you are just a first timer. For me, I really had a hardcore coach when I first went at the Makati Branch. I just forgot to get his name, but he is around 35 to 45 year old. My boxing coach went with me during warm-up, then went on the basics of boxing and then all of a sudden, wow! He told me to go faster and give more power on my punches on various combinations. He’s too overwhelmed since he told me I am so easy to teach. I listen well and execute fairly. That’s maybe the reason why he went a little bar higher on my training.

As to my demand? I just want to make boxing as my regular work-out. It really affects almost all if not your entire body. Mental alertness is also required since your coach will switch to different type of combinations of punches the least time you expect. I really learned a lot on that session and of course I got what I want. The body pain, haha… but seriously, it’s a great workout. The best thing to do rather than spending the rest of your weekends sleeping all day long.

It’s not all about seriousness. Coaches can turn wacky too…
