Boxing may not be the Philippines national sport but you have to admit that it comes as a close second specially after Manny Pacquio made became an 8 division title holder. A lot of people are getting into boxing to be healthy. I have been seeing a lot of gyms offering it but not a one cold hold a candle to the Elorde Boxing Gym.
When I was invited to attend the Media Launch of Elorde Gym at Cafe Lupe, how can I refuse? Not only is it very close to home (just a ride away). Located along the Sumulong Hi-way , Antipolo City.
The Elorde Boxing Gym Cafe Lupe is the first boxing gym I have ever been to. I usually frequent regular gym where it is near a mall and air-conditioned. Elorde Boxing Gym Cafe Lupe, is located at the ground level of Cafe Lupe, the building and gym is own and operated by Alvin and Albright Carranza. The new location has a great view of Metro Manila, it is open air with excellent ventilation. I personally think it’s a good thing it’s not air-conditioned because you tend to sweat more, on good days, the wind just blows through the training area giving the a nice cool breeze.
What makes this gym stand out from all the gyms sprouting in the Metro is the trainers they employ are real former pro fighters.
It is really cool to think that I am being trained and training beside pro/former fighters in boxing gyms.
