Pug's Boxing Club @ The School of Hard Knocks is located at 824 S Main St. in Crystal Lake, Il.. We are a full-service boxing and fitness facility. We offer boxing classes, personal training, competitive boxing (pro and amateur/Golden Gloves). We are coed and all ages! We are an old-school boxing gym that also provides its' members state-of-the-art cardio-vascular amenities (treadmills, equilibrium machines, steppers, etc.), free-weights and machines for cross-training and to help you achieve your boxing & personal training goals. Our trainers are all certified by USA Boxing and have trained numerous pro and amateur boxers and champions. What we do NOT offer is a corporate-designed 'Boxer-obic' or 'Boxer-cize' class like Title Boxing Club or LA Boxing that simply exploits the novelty of boxing (wearing handwraps, gloves, etc.) to cash-in on novelty for profit. Whether you goal is to compete in the Golden Gloves, the prize-ring, or just to get into FIGHTING SHAPE, you will achieve your goals at Pug's Boxing Club while getting schooled in the art and science of Boxing. We take boxing very seriously. We take our members very seriously and we turn out champions both in, and out, of the ring.
OUR PROMISE TO YOU!
At the School of Hard Knocks we offer high-quality boxing instruction at affordable prices. We do not get clients into long-term contracts that rack-up $100 - $200 monthly charges on their credit card or do we debit client's checking accounts. We don't promise clients the world and then fail to provide to them what was promised or to entrap them in a contract they can't get out of. We are not a front for a finance company and we do not retain the services of bill collectors. We don't have to. What we DO do, is provide hi-quality services at affordable prices. It is relatively easy to get a person desperate to get into shape, or wanting to box, to sign-up for a membership, the FIRST TIME. What our challenge is... is to get existing members to renew after their original membership expires. At that time the member will ask himself, "What did I get out of the membership?", "Did I lose fat?", "Did I lose inches?", "Has my cardio-vascular fitness improved?", "Have I acquired above-average boxing skills?", “Was it FUN?” Our success is totally dependent on the excellence of the services we provide and for us to keep those services affordable to a niche demographic that is, and has been, exploited by Martial Arts and Mixed Martial Arts facilities offering sub-par boxing instruction as part of an expensive contract that is impossible to get out of. Our business depends on renewals to continue as a going concern. We understand that. That is why our members are very special to us and why we treat them as special.
Come and try-out a class for free. See if it's for you. Talk to the other members. Get their input. We believe that we offer a membership that will simply KNOCK YOU OUT!
We love our members. You keep us in business. To keep membership prices affordable, it is up to us to provide excellent service to the members we have because our business depends upon members renewing for us to remain a going concern. We are TRANSPARENT with our renewal policy and with our members. If you have any questions concerning your membership agreement or you just need another copy of your membership agreement, you can call us at: 815 356 6572. Generic copies of our membership agreement and 'NOTICE NOT TO RENEW MEMBERSHIP' can be downloaded here for your convenience:
NOTICE NOT TO RENEW MEMBERSHIP - must be submitted 60 DAYS before your Revolving Payment/Renewal date (download & email or snail mail to: Pugs Boxing Club @ The School of Hard Knocks (ATTENTION: ACCOUNTING), 824 S Main St., #102, Crystal Lake, Il., 60014)
