Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym was opened as a full time boxing gym in early 2009 by Peter Stokes. Our head coach Peter Stokes trained and fought as a boxer in Perth over a period of 15 years out of one of the most successful boxing gym’s in its era ‘Tommy Greenwood Boxing Gym’. Peter then went onto kickboxing for a further 3 years when he retired from the sport, becoming an assistant coach at Tommy’s Gym.
Peter has travelled to America & Eastern Europe where he has further developed his coaching skills with Freddie Roach and the team at Wildcard Boxing. He has also worked at the AIS where he has helped with various training programs. Peter has coached at an international, national and state level, where he has coached many boxers to gold medals.
To this day Peter has been part of the most successful ever Australian boxing team, winning 2 gold medals at the World Titles in Kazakhstan 2011. Peter coached alongside Gareth Williams and Mark Wilson to create this success.
We have had 5 representations internationally from our team. Besides our fight team, we have has some excellent success stories out of our gym. Hundreds of people’s lives have been changed from weight loss to self confidence, from rock bottom to success. Over the past we have trained many misguided children and youth and helped them on a path to a better life.
The many benefits of boxing training includes peak fitness, great weight loss, toning, strengthening & conditioning, self discipline, builds self esteem & self confidence and is great fun.
