Tuff'n Up Boxing Gym is located in Newcastle, Australia. Members do not need to spar if they are there for fitness, however sparring is an option for those who are ready.
I don't know a lot about the gym yet as I've just started there, so I'll update this with more details when I'm a bit more experienced.
For now I'll explain the ratings;
Aliveness: It's a boxing gym. Do I really need to go into detail?
Equipment: There's a good variety of equipment, most of it fairly worn but it get's the job done. Lots of punching bags.
Gym Size: Not huge, but not really small either. One of the larger (combat sport) gyms in the city, and it's dedicated space, not a public hall or anything.
Instructor/Student Ratio: Don't know for sure. I try to go in the middle of the day when there aren't many people, so I've never really seen exactly how many people.
Atmosphere/Attitude: Open and welcoming, and despite my inability to compete, I've never been treated differently from others.
Striking Instruction: Again, it's a boxing gym. I probably don't need to go into detail.
Grappling Instruction and Weapons Instruction: NA
Thanks for reading.
