Sadly, places like King's are becoming increasingly scarce. Instead of sharing space with yoga classes and spinning sessions, the athletes here are training for real action in the boxing ring. The smell of sweat and liniment permeates the place. The walls are covered with decaying fight posters and old-school platitudes like "The harder you train, the luckier you get," and "Quitters never win, and winners never quit." The rhythm of speed bags and jump ropes mixes with the sound of punches landing on bodies in the regulation ring. It's the kind of gym where Roberto Duran would feel more at home than Richard Simmons would.
