Cappy's Boxing Gym
Top notch boxing instructors who are trained to work with every fitness and skill level from absolute novice to pro level boxers. One thing that sets us apart from our competition is that we believe boxing skills are LIFE skills and can help you take on your life challenges as well as your fitness and sports goals
Seeing people fall in love with boxing is one of the real joys of my work. Most people are completely amazed after their first workout. They say "yeah, that was hard but it was so fun!" That's what keeps me coming back to boxing every day after 10 years of training and coaching!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
The most important thing is that we talk about your goals and your experience. That's going to guide everything that we do after we start your program. At Cappy's, we work with all fitness levels and experience levels and have programs that are designed for almost any budget (money and time.)
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Our business has 7 trainers- all of whom have different areas of expertise.

How did you get started teaching?
I fell in love with boxing 10 years ago. Started training as a competitive boxer and went on to Ringside National Tournament. As I got older, I decided to transition my passion for boxing into a full-time coaching career. I quit my job at a local law firm and took on the year long training program that Cappy's puts coach candidates through. Now I'm the head coach of our competitive team and a member of the best (in my opinion) team of boxing coaches in Seattle!
What types of students have you worked with?
Everyone from 8 year old kids to 70 year olds. Complete beginners. Seasoned competitive boxers looking to up their game. People cross-training for other competitive sports. And a lot of people looking for a way to get some more relief from the stress of their daily lives.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Every year Cappy's puts on the Central District Boxing Revival at Garfield Community Center. We bring in boxers from all over the PNW for competitive matches. It's such a fun event because we get 300-400 people from the community coming in to enjoy the boxing, food truck, DJ etc. All for $5. It's a steal!
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Look for someone who is passionate about teaching (not just boxing) and someone who continues to box and learn themselves. The best teachers are ones who are really engaged in their activity and intend to master it fully. That's a life long goal and not something that you stop doing after 5, 10 or 20 years
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
How much time can you commit? Are you willing to put in work outside of the scheduled lesson time? Can you make changes in your lifestyle that will support the work you are doing with your lessons (nutrition, sleep, etc.) How much money can you afford to spend?
What's your short term and long term goals? What are you afraid of/nervous about with this training? What are you excited about?
