home-polaroidbuilding-polaLegions Gym was founded in January 2011 by Dave Phillips and Al Chambers with the aim of building a successful gym that is a great place to train for everyone. Over the past 5 years it’s fair to say that goal has been achieved and so, so much more……….

Legions gym is now a thriving community with a big team of active fighters, loads of trainers and hundreds of fitness enthusiasts who like train hard and laugh along the way. Classes are held in a relaxed but hard working environment and are open to all levels, male and female from beginners to active fighters.

Legions also plays a part in the wider community – putting on the highly successful “Night of the Legions” fight nights, and also Little Fighters which trains amateurs to take part in charity boxing matches – winning the Minster FM local heroes fund raiser of the year award!

Legions has a long-standing association with York’s Special Care Baby Unit and has to date raised over £70,000 for the unit with plenty more in the pipeline.
