Why I go to the gym
I go to the gym to work out and stuff.
Usually, I would hit the heavy bag. Also, I would
hit the upper cut bag. Sometimes I would also jump
This is also why I
go to the gym. I like the sparring and the drills.
The ply metrics and the shields are great. Also, the
sparring is great. This is why I go to the gym,

What I like about the Boxing
I like coming to
Barry's Boxing Gym because I have fun here. I enjoy
it. I can feel all the energy around me, and it's a
very good feeling. I also like everyone here, even
though I might not know all of you, you're still a yes
in my book. Everyone here makes me feel comfortable.
Sometimes I don't feel like coming to work out, but
I come anyway just to see everybody. I like
everything about the gym, even the smell.
I want to thank Mr.
Augustine, Mr. Alex, Mr. Teddy Sir, Mrs. Dawn, Mr.
Pat, and Mrs. Christine because you guys don't have
to be doing this for us but you are, so I appreciate
it. I love every single one of you. Thank you

There are a lot of
reasons I like the gym. The conditioning is all
right. I don't like the five minutes of running. I
like the trainers Augie, Alex, and Teddy. The
gym has really good equipment. Barry's Boxing is one of
the best gyms in Las Vegas. I see a lot of great
fighters. Kevin Kelly, Vassily Jirov, Jeff Lacy. I
even saw Hasin Rauman, and one of my favorite
fighters, Diego Corrales. I like the owners of the
gym Dawn and Pat Barry. Barry's Boxing has made a
lot of champions. I hope they can make a champion
out of me. --anonymous
Why I Like The Gym
I like Barry's
Boxing because of all of the fun I have there with
my coaches Augie, Rapper Teddy, Pat, Dawn,
Christine, hungry Alex, Ron, and all of the other
people there that box.
I enjoy how I'm taught to
punch my jabs, hook, & my uppercuts. And I thank
everyone for teaching me how to protect
myself for when I have to do my Layla Ali moves.

I like boxing
because it shows me strength and power. I like it
because it's fun. It is also a good workout. I also
like it because it teaches you how to fight and
defend yourself. Boxing teaches you
to punch and stuff. It also teaches you to block,
and how to hit particular bags. I also like hitting
the speed bag because it teaches you eye and hand
coordination. That is why I like boxing.

I like the gym
because it's a great environment for me to be
around. I would like to thank everybody for teaching
me how to do the things I can do, for teaching me
how to move my head, and for teaching me how to
throw my punches.
If the trainers
didn't help me I would not be where I am at in
boxing. Thank you again.

What I Most Like
I really like the
gym because it is something I like to do. I want to
become a boxer. I like hitting the bags, and
sparring. I kind of like exercises. What I like most
I have fun with Augie, how
he laughs and the jokes he tells. I like going to
the lockers and getting ready. I like hitting the
speed bag and I like when Augie says Hai! Hai! Hai!
What I most like is...is...is EVERYTHING!
