Turners Boxing Club

About Us

Our purpose

Mission

Turner's Boxing Club, established in 2019, offers men, women, and youth a secure, family-friendly environment where they can fully immerse themselves in boxing to meet their unique fitness goals. They do this by utilizing seasoned trainers, cutting-edge fitness equipment, and tried-and-true methods to succeed both inside and outside of the ring. We work to mentor young people who are at risk by supporting initiatives in areas like anger control, anti-bullying, and professional achievement.

Words about

gonzell turner jr.

After retiring from a 30-year career with the Department of the Navy, Turner, 64, is hitting his stride in his dream job: owning a boxing gym with his wife, Debbie Turner, and coaching youth in the sport he loves.

Turner’s focus is giving back to the community and creating a place where he can mentor kids who he thinks will benefit from the discipline required for boxing training.

Teenagers, he said, need “some kind of direction to go instead of getting locked up in jail.”

“I know a lot of kids don’t have that father figure,” said Turner, whose own father died when he was 7 years old.

The Turners established a 501(c)(3) nonprofit as part of their mission to give back to the community so the children of families who cannot afford a membership will still be able to train there.

“If you’re bad, you stay on the other side of the door,” he said. “You come here, you come to learn some things.”

The future

Empowering, equipping, and inspiring generations to be champions through the sport of boxing both inside and outside the ring.
