Drake’s Downtown Gym

Drake's Downtown Gym is a full service fitness facility located in the heart of downtown Dayton. With aerobic fitness machines, free weights and weight machines, it offers all the equipment necessary to help you reach your fitness goals. Personal trainers and boxing coaches are also available to keep your workouts inspiring and varied. In addition to being a fitness facility, Drake's Downtown Gym is the home of Jab City Boxing.

For Beginners

Drake's Downtown Gym wants to ensure that people just starting at the gym truly enjoy the experience and want to come back.

We have created Welterweight classes that are suitable for beginners. During these classes we will teach you boxing fundamentals, including how to throw jabs, hooks and uppercuts to create combinations. Combined with proper footwork, welterweight classes offer a great workout.

Progressive Skill Building

As you progress and are able to get certified for Middleweight classes, the workout intensity increases. To certify for a middle weight class, you must demonstrate proper footwork, have the ability to throw 3 & 4 punch combinations while maintaining your balance and stance and demonstrate the ability to consistently perform the combinations called by the coach.

If you decide to box competitively, we will work together toward the heavyweight certification.
