NewLife Gym Glasgow - Maryhill

Please take a second to help your local gyms.

Morning Folks,

Some of you may have seen this article this morningโ€™s Daily Record. It may be Davie that is pictured but make no mistake, this not just about NLG, this issue is affecting 1000s of small indy gyms across Scotland as well bigger commercial gyms. Us wee ones especially, donโ€™t have a board or a council to speak up on our behalf and as a result we are being left behind by the Scottish Government.

Current lockdown measures mean that in theory we can travel to other parts of the world (eg. Italy, Spain) train and in some cases spar with strangers, then return to Scotland sans quarantine but we cannot train in a socially distant manner here in our own country, in our own small community gyms. Here we can track and trace. Here we can boost our own economy. Here we can support our own communities.

During this time we can also attend other indoor industries such as pubs etc, where we can socially distance at a reduced 1m. Whilst, we are happy for other businesses out there to be open, this move in itself does go initial narrative of taking the stress off the NHS. It is well documented that that there is a strong correlation between A&E admissions and one too many drinks.

This industry has supported lockdown and truly backed the governmentโ€™s decision to slow the country to allow for the slow of COVID. We have closed our doors, lot of us before the official lockdown, we have made extensive changes to our business models and extensive physical changes to our units to ensure we are a safe & compliant space to reopen to.

When we reopen, we know that our services will be greatly reduced (for us personally no grappling/sparring etc) We know that our expenses are going up & our income going down yet we have pushed on to find ways to accommodate the greater publicโ€™s health. We have invited the FM to our gyms, we have written to our MPs and MSPs yet we are not being heard.

We have been told to remain closed with no indication as to when we will even be considered to reopen. We have not been offered additional financial support (loans excluded) and whilst we are absolutely grateful for the initial one off grant, that was offered to all qualifying small businesses , it is not elastic. There has still been rent, bills to pay & for the vast majority of this industry, expensive renovation & remodelling works required to allow us to reopen. For many of us, our members are the ones propping us up, itโ€™s not on them. We are at 20 weeks of closure and we have no idea how much longer it will last. We then have an infinite amount of time where we will be operating on reduced services, which has its on set of ramifications.
We NEED clarity.

As a final note, and I can only speak for us here at NLG personally, we are 100% behind the pledge to ease shielding and get kids back to routine. We agree, that is a top priority. We are not asking to โ€˜skip the queueโ€™. We are asking for support, an explanation behind the theory of pubs and international travel being safer, communication and guidelines.

Please help this industry by sharing our stories, all of our stories, as far and wide as possible. Sign the petitions. Lobby your MPs & MSPs.

Gyms are a sanctuary for many, esp community based gyms. Contrary to popular belief most people do not come to us to learn how to fight, they often come to us because they are fighting something much much bigger in their lives, training is the by product of that coping mechanism.

Hola folks ๐Ÿ™‹ I like to keep things casual, relaxed and realistic so here is my unfiltered, sweaty mug, unbrushed hair and all, sitting on the floor, answering two of our most common questions...
What to expect at our club and am I suitable to take part? As well as telling you a little about the ethos of NewLife Ladies.

Feel free to give this a wee share to anyone who has been toying with the idea of taking up boxing/kickboxing but still a little unsure.

NewLife Gym Glasgow - Maryhill

A big day for the team at NewLife yesterday. 2 comps, 4 fights, 2 dominant wins and 2 loses all against formidable opponents.

As covered in our previous post Micheala takes Gold in her bjj debut, heavily outscoring all of her opponents. Adam , also making his bjj debut, lost in a great attempt against the division winner.

Then we moved on to Evolution Of Combat MMA in Maryhill for our first MMA fights back on Scottish soil in over 2 years.

First up was Tommy with his long awaited return to the cage facing the very well respected RVKMMA Team from Iceland. Known for their strong wrestling game and ground work, Tommy rose to the challenge and brought the fight to him with beautiful striking tactics garnered from his two striking bouts over the last few months, followed by outstanding wrestling work off the cage. He took the win by unanimous decision in front of all of his team mates, friends and family. A big congratulation to his opponent, a very strong and technical lad for her ring experience. Definitely one to watch. The last 2 years have been an incredible journey for Tommy, a true Resurgence Warrior. Well done pal


Hello Ladies, we are on as normal this week, including Saturday. However, Kickboxing is off on Easter Monday, then back to normal from Tuesday.

Hey Folks, just a reminder Little Gladiators resumes tonight and wee update on our opening hours for Easter Weekend. Classes as normal Tuesday 23rd!


Hi Ladies,
Unfortunately ladies class will be off tomorrow :( My apologies for the short notice. Mixed boxing will run as normal at 11.30 :) See you then or Monday for kickboxing.


Here is one of our littlest NewLife Ladies getting some extra work in with the adults, ahead of her second interclub bout on Friday! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Š


NewLife Ladies was created to bridge the gap between the choice of 'boxing based fitness classes' and full on 'fight gym classes'. The idea was to give all women, regardless of their background or current lifestyle, the opportunity to learn how to box properly, with the option of more than one class per week and let them decide how far they wanted to take it - purely for fitness, learn to spar or train to compete.

Ana started with us Feb 2017, as a complete novice. Her goal was just to find a new sport she enjoyed, get a little fitter, a little trimmer and find something to help improve her mood. Initially she stuck with 121 sessions, gradually building her confidence before adding in the ladies classes to her schedule. As her confidence grew, she started to attend mixed classes, branching out in to new disciplines such as jiu jitsu.

Fast forward 2 years to Feb 2019 and here we are. Making us incredibly proud with her debut in the boxing ring with an exhibition bout. It was a beautiful technical and dominant three round performance which made my heart sing. She has achieved all of her initial goals, faster, fitter, stronger, much happier and 35kg+ lighter. She now continues in preparation for her first scored bout.

Congratulations Ana, we are all incredibly proud of you and your efforts so far. It's been extremely rewarding and inspiring to witness your journey. Here's to the next!

And thank you to Ana's opponent for taking the bout, one tough lady, who came to fight ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™


๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ brilliant! If the demon summoning dinnae work classes resume tomorrow at 6pm ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Marketing dudes email us fairly often to let us know that we should sensationalise our marketing a bit more . Make it all little less 'normal'. But I like normal. Normal folks, with normal lives being their extraordinary selves in their own way.

So on that note, if you fancy learning how to box or kick we are an option. No pressure, anyone can come along. Any age, any shape, any fitness level, any range of normal :) You take it at your own pace, whether that's all guns blazing or a wee meander through the day.
