    May buy-one-take-one promo sila sa membership, last day today.

    I am a member, along with around 12 of my co-workers. The owner, Rob, is a nice guy and the staff/coaches I've trained with are cool. Try to get Junmar a.k.a. Jay as your trainer if you want to learn proper boxing/MT technique.

    It gets quite crowded in the evenings, but they are open until late. Best time to train is early morning when they open at 7AM -- you might catch me there on a Monday.

    Make sure you ask to see the shower area before signing up at Makati branch.

    I have not been inside the Shaw branch yet.

    blakedaddy should probably merge this with the Boxing Gyms thread.

    oo nga noh...

    Pa-merge na lang sa Boxing Gym thread.

    They will be opening a branch at Timog soon.

    The Makati branch is very, very crowded in the evenings. So crowded, some people hit the mitts and do their warmup/cooldown in the hallway near the elevators.

    Yeah it gets quite crowded in the evenings in Makati but people come back for the great service the gym provides. Shaw has a big space with lots of room for people to train comfortably, have you tried it there? Timog is coming along good too. I like the vibes at the Empire Gyms, nice people with good work ethic.
