Albuquerque's premier boxing and fitness coaches
Mission Statement: To bring high level boxing training to all people who have an interest in boxing, fitness, and a healthy lifestyle by connecting YOU to an expert COACH
Lion Boxing Fitness was founded in June 2019 by Leonid "Baby Drago" Grachev to provide elite level boxing training for people of all ages and backgrounds! Having worked with a variety of clients of all skill levels and walks of life we have the tools needed to help you reach your boxing and fitness goals! From kids programs to running Parkinsons Boxing classes our experience stretches across the spectrum.
"I found being a professional fighter striving for world class accolades difficult with a full-time job and an overbearing schedule. Even while working at a gym -- one of the most ideal scenarios for a fighter -- it was hard to train like I wanted to. After having been trained by world class coaches I started Lion Boxing Fitness so I could manage my own schedule and bring elite level training to anyone who is interested in learning the sweet science, getting in shape, losing weight, or training for competition. With as much as this business has grown it became necessary to bring more coaches on board. Every coach on the Lion Boxing Fitness roster is a professional fighter and/or a full-time coach with plenty of coaching and personal training experience that will help you reach your goal!"
-Leonid "Baby Drago" Grachev
"Leo helped me prepare for my first amateur fight, he put together a strategy for my bout and helped me get on weight. He worked my corner and we got the win!"

"I did personal training with Lion Boxing Fitness for a year. They are great coaches, encouraging, extremely knowledgeable, and always keeps lessons fresh and challenging. I would very much recommend them to anyone looking for a great workout!"

"I first met Leo at a boxing class for Parkinson’s, at that time I didn’t have much mobility. After attending the class twice a week for a couple of months my symptoms improved to the point that I started taking private lessons from him every week. Leo was just what I needed to begin my rehabilitation, he pushed me on technique and over the next several months my symptoms improved enough that I could actually step in the ring and spar with him. Anyone serious about wanting to learn boxing and improve I would highly recommend Leo."
