Introducing our Fitness Membership

Jan. 07, 2019, 7:04 p.m. (ET)

USA Boxing is proud to announce our new Fitness Membership.  This membership is for people who want to work out in a USA Boxing registered gym and train like a boxer to get the fitness benefits.  This membership allows you to work out, train with a coach, use heavy bags, speed bags, punch mitts, etc.  What this membership does NOT allow is sparring or boxing.  This is strictly a non-contact membership!


Why are we offering this?  Because we have heard from our coaches and clubs over the years that they have members in their gyms who want to train like a boxer, but not box.  Many gyms would like all their members to be registered with USA Boxing, but not all members want to box or compete, so this membership fills that gap.


Because our Fitness members will not be competing and do not require all the resources that a full athlete membership requires, the membership fee is less.


Annual Membership Fee for Fitness Members


Youth Fitness (Ages 8 to 17) $25


Adult Fitness (Ages 18 and over) $35


Fitness members will receive the same secondary injury/accident insurance that our other members receive.  Which means a registered Fitness member is covered if he or she is injured while working out (not sparring!) in a USA Boxing registered gym.


We want to encourage our gym/club owners to get all their members registered, so for each Fitness member a gym signs up, the gym will receive $5 of the membership fee.  Each quarter, USA Boxing will send a check to the gym.


Fitness members must be attached to a USA Boxing registered gym; they cannot be unattached with no club affiliation.  Also, Fitness members will not get a passbook but will be able to print a membership card just like other members.  Coaches – please remember your fitness members are NOT to spar!


If you join as a Fitness member and down the road you decide you want to try sparring, you can easily upgrade your membership to a full athlete membership.
