About The Boxing Fitness Institute

The Boxing Fitness Institute is the world's leading resource for Boxing Fitness Trainer programs. Health clubs from the USA and around the world recognize and respect our Certification.

We started from humble beginnings when Tony Spain, a pioneer in Boxing Fitness and former professional boxer, began providing personal fitness training to Andrew Neitlich, an author and marketing consultant.

The two saw that Tony's Boxing Fitness system was unique, got great results and rave reviews, and was ready for a larger audience. They also decided that the usual fitness programs were inauthentic and unrealistic, using Hollywood actors, fitness models, and professional athletes instead of everyday people. So they created something different: a simple-to-follow, easy-to-learn fitness system, using the more or less normal people from Tony’s gym as models.

Soon after, celebrity fitness professional and former professional boxer Paul Simpson joined us with his incredible 12-Week "New Body" Makeover Program.

The programs at the Institute are down to earth and practical. You will see real, regular people working out in a real workout facility. These are people who want to get in great shape like a boxer, but don't want to get in the ring and actually fight. They enjoy Boxing Fitness for cross training, self-confidence, strength, conditioning, and weight loss. They also have a great time.

We hope you join us and get Certified today! You will be glad you did. Contact us at
