More than a Gym
At Austin Boxing Babes, you’ll build boxing skills, confidence, and community in classes run by USA Boxing Certified Coaches.
Safely Open During Coronavirus
We are committed to keeping our gym open only if we can ensure we aren’t endangering our community. We have been running classes virtually for several months and are now opening for outdoor classes, small group indoor classes, small group open gym hours and 1-on-1 private training.
Women's Boxing and Martial Arts
Welcome to Austin Boxing Babes, the most unique boxing gym in Austin. Our women’s only boxing classes will push you in a totally new way. There’s no watered down boxing here. You’ll learn real boxing techniques from our group of women USA Boxing Certified coaches.
Our philosophy is that challenging yourself leads to personal growth both in and out of the ring. Our members get hooked on learning punch combinations, footwork, punching power and more. As you grow your skills, you’ll grow your confidence.
If you’re looking for a fun workout with a great group of women, try out Austin’s Boxing Babes!

What Separates Us from the Fitness Franchises?
Personal Challenges = Personal Growth
Most of the boxing/kickboxing geared towards women is basically an aerobic workout. There’s nothing wrong with those type of classes, but many women want more. Our classes are going to challenge you physically and mentally as you learn technique and how to spar. You don’t need to get hit, but we train every student like they’re preparing for the ring. Read testimonials from our Babes about how empowering boxing is.
Grow Your Skills and Grow Your Rank
Similar to Martial Arts dojos, our Boxing Babes also have a color ranking system. As you build up your skill set, you will be invited to attend our color band tests. It’s a fun way to come together and celebrate the success of all the women at the school. Plus we go out to breakfast after!
Women Led Classes for Women
It’s important to us to create a space for women to try something new in a supportive community without sacrificing a real boxing experience. Learn more about our awesome all-women group of US Boxing Certified coaches.
