A LITTLE ABOUT US AND OUR HISTORY

Coach Don Nelson’s dream of opening a boxing club in Oshawa became a reality in 1993. Don and some very good friends built our first club from scratch at 716 Wilson Road in Oshawa. In 1995, we moved to 475 Salisbury Street where the club prospered for 15 years. With the help of a lot of good people along the way, the support of an entire community, and the good fortune to have had some very talented young people walk through our doors, Motor City is now one the most respected boxing clubs in Canada.In January 2011 we opened in partnership with Body Boomers Fitness Club, at their location in the Whitby Mall. This location was very good for our club and we enjoyed increased competitive success, while tripling our membership.In August of 2014 we relocated to our current location, at 725 Bloor St W in Oshawa, within the confines of Durham Ultimate Fitness Club.This facility features a fully equipped 4,000 sq ft boxing studio with full access to a brand new world class weight room, state of the art cardio studio, full service change rooms, steam rooms, spin studio, group fitness classes, and daycare. In total, members have access to roughly 30,000 sq ft of workout space. We also have a supplement shop and snack bar on site.Now here�s the best part: members also have access to the facility 21 hours per day.
