Been doing 1-1 sessions with David since January. Each session is full energy, and it makes me want to come back week after week, the Gym itself is a great place and everyone I’ve spoke to there are welcoming and passionate. Definitely recommend apollos for anyone interested in getting into boxing or just looking for a new place to train!!

I have been training at Apollos for over 2 years now doing 1-2-1 sessions and some classes. The teaching style is excellent. There is lots of focus in building technical skill which is a nice change from most other boxing gyms I have been to.I really felt that everyone cares about eachothers development whether you want to be a competitive boxer or not. The environment is very skills focused and supportive. I have felt very safe sparring here and this has allowed me to develop on areas I want to improve on.There genuinely is a lot of attention to detail here and I think that anyone who trains here will definitely improve.

Apollos boxing the best in the business, the new gym tops any other I’ve seen or been to. The coaching is on a next level and full of top lads and girls bringing a sick environment, I recommend to anyone looking to get fit or wanting to learn to box.


"After starting with Paul at Apollo’s just 5 weeks ago as a complete novice, I have improved my fitness, motivation and developed a foundation of boxing skills. Paul’s boxing insight, coaching patience and ability to read an individual’s needs is second to none. As a 40 year old boxing fan who had never set foot in a gym, I was initially unsure of what to expect. Paul immediately put me at ease, understood my aims and tailored his approach to suit them. Thanks to Paul my appreciation of boxing skills has grown rapidly and my motivation to learn more and simultaneously get fitter has increased. Thanks to Paul and the team for great 1 to 1’s and classes."

Jamie Patterson

"I have been working with Paul Usher at Apollo Boxing in Bolton for many years now, My Boxing skills for MMA have come on leaps and bounds. Paul also coached me at FCC21 on the defence of my LWW title fight, his knowledge and love for the sport is second to none. I would recommend Apollo’s Boxing to anyone whether just starting or an experienced fighter!"

Lloyd Sweeney

"I’ve been working with Paul Usher for a number of years and couldn’t rate him highly enough. I’ve been competing at the highest level in mixed martial arts and Apollos boxing has helped me develop my skills and take my career to the next level."

Saul Rogers, MMA Fighter

"I have used Apollos to aid both my physical and mental fitness. After being somewhat wary of what I was letting myself in for I was quickly put at ease by the nature of the trainer (Paul) and the program that he planned and put in place."

Jon Corbett

"It was great getting back into at Apollo’s. I’m older, slower and heavier so felt self conscious but there was absolute no need. Usher is so welcoming, friendly, funny and non judgmental that I felt really comfortable immediately. I can feel I’m getting fitter every week and enjoying myself."

Kate Ellison

"Since starting working with Paul just under a year ago, my boxing ability has gone from strength to strength and every session I feel my performance improves. While lockdowns have meant we have had to take time out in the year, in our most recent sessions I feel my ability is the best it has ever been."
