Third Street Gym was opened in September 2003, by Paul Wade and Simon Redmond. Both men, originally from Dublin, Ireland, met six years prior in a Mission district boxing gym, and became good friends. What unites them is a heartfelt passion for the “sweet science” that keeps getting deeper.
Both Redmond and Wade won Golden Glove titles here in San Francisco in 1999 and 2001 respectively. Wade then began to focus on training and developing fighters, producing numerous Golden Gloves champions, while Redmond continued to fight, winning 13 out of 18 fights under Wade’s direction.
During this period they realized that boxing in San Francisco had seen better days, and there was a pressing need for an authentic boxing gym. So, after years of training, Wade convinced Redmond to go into business together and open their own boxing gym.
A vacant space on Third Street was one of many they checked out. They were sold immediately. With concrete walls, iron piping, and low ceilings, it had the look and feel they wanted. A hard space for hard workouts.
So, if you want to lose weight, get fit, fortify your mind and spirit — or just hit stuff — come check out the new breed of gym: 3rd Street Boxing Gym.
