    Which one is best for a beginner? I am 17 years old and loved the sport and want to focus on it. Money isn't a problem so tell me which one is better. Thank you.

    Mendez
    Monthly rates:
    With a coach: $185
    On your own: $ 90
    Pay for 6 months, get the next month free



    Kingsway is 135 with a trainer included


    So if you want to train yourself, Mendez seems okay, but Kingsway has seemingly better facilities and includes training in the monthly fee.


    I would try them both and some others as well though to see which trainers you like to work with.. also look around the gym for guys your size.. you want a place that can provide you with sparring partners eventually

    Well the price says more about the place than just the price.. if ya catch my drift..

    to this day, Wild Card gym = the same one Manny Pac still trains at along with several high profile fighters, charges
    $50/month or 5/day
    $25/month for licensed pros and amateurs

    now why are they so cheap? Because they want to attract talent and then mold them into successful sources of revenue for the club.. that means they want to make people into champions before they collect.

    Getting hit up front with a hefty fee suggests that the trainers want to make their money up front and have less faith in developing fighters enough to make the big bucks.

    In general, from my experience.. expensive gyms cater to people that want to get in shape..

    reasonable gyms with incentives built in for people that actually fight cater to people that want to fight.



    All that said... Mendez has better online reviews if money isnt an object
