WHAT IS GLOVE
GLOVE is a pop up, fully transportable boxing studio. We have a custom built bag-hanging rig that holds up to 14 punch bags and can house up to 28 people per class. We bring the energy of an intense boxing gym workout - to ANYWHERE the rig fits. We aim to pop up all over London, major UK cities and across Europe before settling in a permanent location in 2019.
GLOVE is also available for brand collaborations and private hire. GLOVE has already set up at many notable spaces, most recently in the incredible main barn at Soho Farmhouse.
We can also set up GLOVE at your brand activation or product launch to provide influencer/journalist boxing classes on the rig. Our simple branding allows us to collaborate easily. Our unique set up will bring something completely different and new to your launch. Either you find the space, or we can do that for you.
WHAT WE DO // ABOUT US
Combining boxing and old school bodyweight exercises, GLOVE is an intense, fun, no contact, full body workout. Owner and founder Tom McClelland wanted to create a workout that was available for everyone and anyone, whatever your experience level. He believes EVERYBODY should be able to learn to throw a real punch; and experience how beneficial boxing can be for your brain and your body.
After over 15 years in the fitness industry, in London, Salt Lake City, Utah and New York City, Tom felt as though an elitist, 'aesthetic only' attitude had been formed in the fitness world; with the real benefits of exercise being lost behind the glossy retouched social media images of what is considered a 'healthy' body.
After understanding how much of an effect exercise had on his own mental health, Tom set out to share that with others. At GLOVE we workout to feel good - no ego's, no bullshit, no toxicity. We aim to resist the elitist gym environments that can make it intimidating for some people to enter the doors. We believe that everybody should experience how powerful boxing can make you feel.
