Christian Luna — Butch’s boxing gym is a very good gym. It changed me in a good way.Before I joined the gym I didn’t even worked out or do a single push up.But that all changed when I joined the gym.When I first started I did level 1 I was struggling with a lot of workouts. But as time went by I eventually progressed.Level 1 is all about learning all your basics.The work outs make you stronger and perfects your moves.After level 1 you go to level 2. Butch’s boxing gym gave me more confident and it got me in shape.Also it made me in love with the sport of boxing.Now I am addicted to just getting better and perfect everything I can.

 

Francesco Maresca — Butch’s Boxing And MMA is a very influential gym. It changed my life to be completely truthful. Butch really knows how to make one a great boxer and MMA fighter by using traditional techniques. A lot of his training is a lot of drills and calisthenics which is called level 1. But eventually as time progresses you begin to slap-box and even spar. I really like Butch’s Boxing And MMA

Gus Pappas — An excellent program for kids. Teaches them discipline and strengthens them. Everyone there is excellent with kids and they know how to motivate, not frustrate. Truly a family feeling and a great environment for the kids

Brian Gardner — Butch, Amanda and the crew are awesome! They made my 11 year old feel right at home from the get go. The program is a combination of mixed martial arts, cardio, and strength training, and they make it fun and engaging! Great place, my son looks forward to the workouts and we will be consistently coming back for more!

I came in here not knowing anything about boxing and with only a few lessons became well equipped. The work ethic in this gym is serious/intense but also makes you feel at home.

I also got in the shape of my life after going here for three weeks. Great place if your looking to cut weight. Overall great experience and glad I am apart of the gym!

I strongly encourage anyone who has the urge to try boxing or martial arts (of any age) to attend this gym because of its family friendly environment and strong encouragement to always improve on your skills. Butch and Amanda were very welcoming even when I hadn’t been showing up to classes, they always encouraged me to come in and work hard. These classes are absolutely great, it boosts self confidence and health. I feel like I am in the best shape that I have ever been in. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GYM TRUST ME YOU WONT REGRET BECOMING A MEMBER HERE.

Both Butch and Amanda’s experience coupled with their dedication and commitment makes this hands down a fantastic boxing gym for those who either want to compete – which I have and I’ve won with their help – or just get in shape. It is a family oriented gym unlike any other. Both Butch and Amanda care about their clients and their families. I’ve been in and out of the gym for the past year because of my schedule but every time I go back I’m always welcomed. This gym is great for men and women of all ages. Unlike other boxing gyms that can be intimidating, Butch’s boxing will make you feel at ease. Highly recommend this place

Love them! My daughter has been doing MMA with Butch & Amanda since 2012! I could not feel more safe and secure in any other place.
My daughter who is now 12, loves going to class and now my nephew who is 6, joined the gym a couple months ago! Both of them look forward to the day I bring them to class.
This is a safe environment, kids will l
earn MMA, self  defense, self discipline, etc.
Thru the years Butch & Amanda have helped my daughter to stay more focused and be more responsible and confident. She was not doing well in school when she started with the program however She has made such a huge progress that now she is part of the honor role at her school.
They are wonderful with people, especially with children! This is a family oriented environment and I recommend them 100%

Whether you’re looking for a personal membership or kids classes, you can’t find better coaches than Butch and Amanda! My son has been taking classes here for almost 5 years and he loves it! I took one-on-one lessons here with Coach Amanda and it was always a great experience. My daughter attended the summer camp here for two or three years in a row, and she always had a great time. Coaches Butch and Amanda are great with all the kids; they’re fun, trustworthy, and  always give 100%.

My younger daughter has been a member the longest & has been in the kids’ class, Level I class and now is in the teen boxing class.  Both Coach Amanda & Coach Butch are great & work with everyone regardless of fitness or skill level! They are excellent motivators and keep the routines fresh so they don’t get boring. If you’re looking for a great gym with a fun way to get into shape, go to Butch’s Boxing & MMA!

From age 11(22 now) i started working out and training under Butch and Amanda. Training in all its aspects was exceptional, producing me into the south paw that everyone is annoyed to fight with today. What stood out the most is the gym has the most kind hearted trainers that generally care about each and every one of its members. Butch and Amanda give the gym a nice home feel to it making you feel comfortable and in my case making the gym my escape.This gym helped me gain confidence in myself, introduced me to life long friends and helped me find something that i am passionate about. Thanks Boots and Aman! Love you guys!

06/30/2016 – I wanted to add a small update to my previous review.  My nephew went through a life changing experience not to long ago and as a result became depressed as well as overweight.  At 9 years old he was out of breath going up a flight of stairs.  Training with Butch and Amanda gave him his self confidence back.  It also made him physically stronger and finally healthy.  He would even bug me to take him when it wasn’t his day.  I am very thankful and relieved.

My son has been going there for a couple of years now. He does a private lesson with Amanda and 1 class a week. Coach Amanda is hands down the best. I trust my son with Butch and Amanda any day. She is caring and motivating to kids. You have 30 days to try it and see why everyone loves this place.

Butch and Amanda have created a welcoming, judge-free family gym. My boy felt right at home immeadiately; the training is excellent and he has been eagerly attending for three years now. I was so pleased with his progress and improved fitness that I decided to try it myself. I work out 6 days a week and thought I was going to breeze through the classes, but Butch and Amanda customize the classes to meet the fitness goals and level of each student. I was amazed at how challenging the classes were.  I have been attending regularly for about 16 months now and boxing has become the cornerstone of my fitness routine. I love this gym, my anaerobic fitness level has dramatically improved and continues to do so, as well as my form and technique. They have good equipment and a weight room in the basement, with an “open gym” policy for members to come and train and lift when classes aren’t going on. I love this gym!!!!

Butch and Coach Amanda are great motivators and have taught me form and technique that have translated into much success for me. The friendly lighthearted attitude created by Butch and Coach Amanda has kept me coming back and has helped me keep the weight off.

Coach Butch and Coach Amanda are the best.They make you feel like you are  part of their family. I have three girls ages 8, 9 & 11. They love going to the gym.  My girls also attended summer camp at the gym last year. If it was up to them they would be there everyday.

I Absolutely love this place. I came in and had a 1:1 session with Amanda. She Is amazing and  I learned so much from her during our session. It’s just too bad that where I love currently isn’t close enough or I’d be there training. Highly recommend this gym.

I owe my thanks to them for helping me seek confidence within myself.

Butch and Amanda are excellent with kids and really care about all of their students. Neither of them ever gave anyone a reason not to trust them. It is quite clear how far the ex is willing to go to get her way.

The staff at this gym care, and they care alot.  The kids groups are taught not only boxing and MMA, but respect for themselves and others.  Personally, I was thankful for the diversity of exercises they teach.  I was many times tired, but never bored.
