Welcome to our Gym

Our mission is to build a positive and supportive community to foster the love of sport. At Whizbang Boxing we know the importance of exercise on mental health and improvements to the physical body, and we strive to support all members in finding wellness and strength.


Whizbang provides a friendly and healthy atmosphere for me and my family to stay active and learn the great sport of boxing. Teaching is detailed and tailored to the individual, and coach Shawn does a great job motivating everyone to push their own limits while respecting their fitness level and ability. 10/10 would recommend.

Super inviting and inclusive for the LGBT+ community, and coaches strike the perfect balance between pushing you and sticking with what you’re already comfortable with. The space and equipment are also quite accessible and easy to use. Great place to start if you have anxiety about gyms, worth every dime.

Great gym to get you into the sport of Boxing. Shawn is an awesome teacher and very knowledgeable about the sport. Love that everyone’s welcome and there’s no “macho man” mentality. Combat sports can be intimidating, but Shawn does a great job encouraging the right kind of atmosphere! Great selection of gear too.

My son, who is about to turn 12, has been taking lessons for the past 6 weeks or so. After years of trying to find not only an activity that he enjoys, but also a place that makes him feel welcome and successful, my kid finally found this with Whizbang. My son speaks highly of Shawn and is always excited to get to the gym for the lessons.

Great atmosphere, new and clean environment with a great coach to help you refine and learn the art of boxing. Very welcoming and non-judgmental and supportive on one of the greatest journeys a person can walk. Highly recommend!!
