Box ‘N Burn was created and founded in Santa Monica, CA in late 2012 by Tony Jeffries and Kevan Watson. Kevan had taken over as a manager of a boxing program at a local gym in late 2011 with hopes of building a successful and effective boxing and fitness program. After Tony officially retired an undefeated professional boxer in 2012 due to injury, he applied for a boxing trainer position at the boxing gym Kevan had been managing. The two instantly meshed and together they made a previously generic boxing program wildly successful in the matter of a few months. They knew almost immediately after their early success that they wanted to have their own program and left this gym soon after. Kevan and Tony took their innovative boxing and fitness boot camp style classes to the bluffs of downtown Santa Monica, CA, just down from the world famous Santa Monica Pier. Shortly after the two coined the name ‘Box ‘N Burn’; little did they know this name would be recognized as the #1 gym in California a few short years later. In the park they worked for donations only, and quickly gained a large following. At this time Kevan and Tony needed help to manage the large classes and brought Glenn Holmes and Stephen Cain on board. The team worked tirelessly, conducting BNB sessions morning and night, while roaming the streets of Los Angeles by day, looking for a commercial space to give Box ‘N Burn an official home.
In October of 2012, the two walked into a warehouse which was a temporary Halloween store located at 1654 Lincoln Blvd, and would be available for lease beginning in November. November 15th, 2012, Tony and Kevan signed their first commercial lease and finally had a home for Box ‘N Burn. They began working on the space that very evening, and held the very first class at the now world famous Box ‘N Burn Boxing & Fitness Gym, on Friday, November 16th, 2012.
Box ‘N Burn quickly became the hottest boxing and fitness class in all of LA. The Santa Monica gym rapidly filled to capacity and after just 18 months of being in operation, a second location was opened in Brentwood, Los Angeles, CA in July of 2015. Box ‘N Burn Brentwood has mirrored the same success as Box ‘N Burn Santa Monica, and the duo aims to expand even more in the near future.
Box ‘N Burn Santa Monica and Brentwood are California’s premiere boxing and fitness facilities; they’re the fitness home for many high profile athletes and fighters, musicians, and Hollywood elite; it’s been featured in multiple TV shows, films, music videos, commercials, web series, podcasts, newspapers, magazines, and blogs. In 2015 Men’s Fitness and Yelp ranked Box ‘N Burn as California’s #1 Gym, and #5 nationally. In 2016 BNB received recognition and sponsorship from Everlast Worldwide, the leading boxing brand and manufacturer in the world.
In 2015, The Box ‘N Burn Academy was created and designed as an extension of Box ‘N Burn’s established brand and trademarked training style. The academy was developed for personal trainers and fitness professionals, boxing coaches and trainers, as well as boxing and fitness enthusiasts. The academy is aimed to not only break down and teach the very basic fundamentals of boxing for the attendees, but to equip the attendees with the tools and knowledge necessary to teach someone else how to box in the fitness capacity, safely and correctly. We will show you how to combine those authentic hands-on boxing techniques in a functional approach to deliver a rare and highly effective formula for boxing and fitness training.
Box ‘N Burn has brought boxing fitness to the forefront of the fitness industry world wide by offering a unique and unparalleled training style and environment. First and foremost, boxing is addictive, rewarding, stress relieving, and most importantly FUN! The BNB formula for fitness training is not only appealing to a wide range of individuals for these reasons, but it’s also highly effective in achieving a variety of fitness and health goals no matter where any one individual may be on their fitness journey. We’ve had tremendous success with individuals from all walks of life including professional fighters and athletes, amateur athletes, adults, kids, troubled adolescents, geriatrics, physically disabled, obese, and mentally ill, just to name a few. Our boxing methods are derived from proven Olympian and professional level boxing principles and techniques. Our functional fitness and strength training regimen is a mixture of movements and exercises that are not only progressive and comprehensive, but systematically complementary to the boxing training. Meshing these methods and ideologies together has truly re-defined the meaning of ‘cross-training’.
We will spend a full day demonstrating, practicing & drilling the basics of boxing. You will then get hands on experience at teaching those skills within our method. You will not become a professional in one day, but you will gain a system and format to then take away and practice and utilize.
