If there was central casting for boxing gyms, City of Angels would be it: Hardcore industrial space in DTLA? Check. Graffiti murals on the walls? Ditto. Charismatic owner/instructor who barks out commands like a drill sergeant with laryngitis? You bet. But it doesn’t just look the part. This is where the LAPD boxing team trains, and for good reason—it’s a fantastic workout. Each student is stationed at their own punching bag, where they alternately box, use medicine balls for strength training, jump rope and box some more.
