The evolution of Dreamland Boxing:

Dreamland has expanded next door!!

It’s exciting to see the next chapter for Dreamland, expanding next door for additional gym space. The wait list has been lifted and the gym now offers beginners classes, kids classes, and additional open gym hours.

Dreamland has been a second home to me for the past 18 years. We actually used to occupy part of the dog training center on the right (later slides!), before giving up that space and expanding the other direction. When COVID hit, the gym adapted by adding an outdoor gym in the back, which now connects its original space with the west wing just a few doors down.

I’m excited for the next chapter at @dreamlandboxing. For more info, visit or email

First slide: A sneak peak of the new space. First time hitting the @aquapunchingbag!

Coach Ian’s Classes:

As you may know, I am currently donating my time to host virtual online boxing classes for the members of our 501c(3) non-profit boxing gym, Dreamland Boxing. As an active member of Dreamland, you will receive the materials and video recaps of each lesson through my website under the “Premium Drills” section.

Dreamland has also increased its outdoor capacity to 16 students per class, and lifted limits on how many classes you can sign up for in a week. Join me for a class on Fridays at 4:30PM!

Our practices this week featured the following:

  • The jab!!
  • Countering with the jab
  • Defense
  • Moving to your left and right
  • And more!
