The story began in 2001 at the Wharepai domain in Tauranga central, when Chris Walker a former boxer and boxing coach from Rotorua set up the Tauranga Boxing Gym.

It was a small facility that offered boxing fitness and boxing technique classes to the good people of Tauranga. The word spread and the gym quickly grew in members as the benefits of boxing training delivered by qualified coaches became evident. The gym was producing happy members as well as successful international boxers. In 2008, Chris Walker opened TGA Box Health and Fitness, and in 2017 opened Te Puke Box Gym; both full-facility gyms that specialise in boxing and boxing fitness, catering for people who want to get in shape and lose weight, utilising the sweet science of boxing.

Hear from some of our great clients:

“About a year and a half ago I walked into TGA box Health and Fitness, I was overweight, unhealthy, unfit, stressed, and depressed, the list goes on. I was greeted by friendly faces and to my surprise as I started to explain myself and the circumstances that had lead me to being there, I had an overwhelming feeling that I was being genuinely listened to… I lost around 18kg, gained muscle, increased my fitness banging out 2.5km runs (wouldn’t even break into a jog when I first joined) and my lifestyle choices are on track with the help of good discipline. I competed in three Clash of the Corporate fight nights. I’ve met a lot of great people and TGA Box has turned my life around! I recommend anyone that’s thinking about going down there to get into it. I owe them a massive thank you!”

“I am thrilled with the results I get from the Box-Fit classes I attend at TGA Box. When I started in 2013 my motivation was for fitness and strength, not anticipating that it would totally change me, my body shape and my attitude! I am now a ‘regular’ to boxing and encourage any walks of life to make the first step like I did no matter what your motivation may be. I now have so much more energy and sparkle to my everyday life. Thanks TGA Box Health and Fitness!”

“I would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone at TGA Box that have inspired and helped me over the last 6 months to get me where I am right now!!! You guys have been amazing. I still remember your words to me when I first sat down to chat about joining, “you need to do this for you!” And you were so right… I was a size 16, eating unhealthily and being inactive. I just felt so yucky within myself. You gave me the tools and activities to get me going, to get motivated and to get fit and whenever I would struggle or have a question you would be there to inspire, make a suggestion and motivate me. Now I am a size 10 and considering novice bodybuilding… had you told me that 6 months ago I would have been rolling on the floor laughing. And I know that everyone at TGA BOX will be behind me every step of the way!”
