Anyone know of some old school boxing clubs in the borough? Lookng for basic workout, nothing fancy = cheap.

Come on Tolstoy, tell us what's happened, better people than me will tell you the intelligent route is the only way!

I speak from experience :)

Ha! Nothing like that. I work as an extra in the movie business and am moving up the chain to doing more stunt related work, though at 55 it doesn't come as natural as to the young ones so I have to put in the extra work to keep up. Due to an unrelated injury which has seen me off my game recently whilst it sorts itself out, I now need to get back in shape but I'm not interested in expensive fittness plans aimed at white collar workers.

The Islington Boxing Club fits my purpose but it's a bit of a trek if I'm realistic when it comes to regular use. I pick boxing as it appeals on a personal level but the fact is many of the best stunt people come from a dance background as it is more about flexibility than strength.

I've never been (although I should!) but heard lots of people recommend Moreno Boxing Club

There is something called Box-Fit over at Colombo Street.

What about the Ring in Ewer Street Arches?

The Ring - 15 a session
Rooneys - 10 a session
Miguels ( Brixton ) = 5 a session ( and the only old school one out of the three rem boxing is a poor mans sport ).
Colombo Center - has an area with a good solid hanging bad you can practice on. Membership if you live in the area used to be 20 a month.

Colombo is still 19.95 per month.
Dennis one of the trainers over there mentioned 1:1 sessions and has a good knowledge of the "old school" venues locally. I am sure you could pop in and ask him.

Unless you hit the big league acting is a poor man/woman 'sport'. I'll be looking into Miguels, thanks for the tip. Rooneys and The Ring are nice places but too expensive for me to maintain on a random income.
