It’s been a long time coming and the moment is finally here.

The Philippines has long been famed throughout the world for it’s Boxing. We still bring the traditional Muay Thai that Legacy Gym has long been know for, but we are also placing a large focus on Western boxing

Boracay was named in 2012 as the "Top Island Beach Destination in Asia" by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Though long known in the Philippines as a top beach destination, it has only just recently seen it’s popularity spread around the world. Amazing beaches fantastic weather and great nightlife await you in Boracay. Construction is now complete in the gym, and the results are great!

legacy gym is an MMA gym in boracay, it has equipments you need for mma training. trainers here are the real deal. all are experienced fighters, and some are current professional fighters who fights actively. they give u tips that are only learned from experience. they share their knowledge and never holds back. they push you whether you train for a fight or even just for fitness sake. i do recommend the gym for anyone, a fighter, a fan, or just for the sake of sweating it out.

I have been at legacy for the past month. Boracay is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever visited. The island is definitely more convenient than Phuket and about the same price. Diniwid beach is pretty secluded and a great place to relax in-between classes. There are tons of bars and restaurants on the island and the nightlife is too much fun!The gym itself is a bit small and is a work-in-progress(one ring, one cage, about 12 bags), but it has everything you need to get a great workout. The scheduled classes weren't always held (no wrestling while I was here, and only 3 BJJ classes, 1 kickboxing class, and 1 MMA class), but there was always boxing and strength/conditioning. The strength/conditioning classes were held on white beach and were tough. It was great to train on the beach and go for a swim afterwards.The filipino trainers and Richie made the trip. They were some of the best that i have ever had; patient, focused, funny, and very friendly. There weren't many people here this month so we all got a lot of attention from the trainers; 3 people the first week, about 7 people for 2 weeks after that, and 3 people this week.If you are coming to Legacy just to train the rooms are ok, but if you plan on going out to enjoy the nightlife or want to be comfortable I would suggest finding a place to sleep away from the gym. The rooms are pretty rustic and a bit overpriced; no kitchen, no a/c, no fan for the first few nights, bathrooms and common areas can be a bit dirty at times, no TVs, lots of ants, no real privacy because the building is made out of bamboo and sways a bit when someone moves around. You can find a concrete room with wifi, tv, a/c, a clean bathroom and possibly a kitchen for 15,000-20,000 pesos.All in all, I was happy with the training and especially the trainers. I met a lot of great guys and girls and had an amazing time. I would definitely come back to train in paradise, I would just stay somewhere a little more comfortable and private.
