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.
They also have a branch in Peaksun bldg on Princeton st along Shaw blvd. Malapit sa Wack Wack. Ganda din mg train duon, very friendly talaga yung staff.
few pix here, meron din ata sa fb nila: https://foursquare.com/v/empire-boxi...b00599e47d7b00
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.
I am a member for free c/o Coach Rob himself at the Makati Branch XD ... I always go during weekends and I don't experience the the crowd. I usually go at round 5-6PM
