Guest Blog Post by Adam Navarro, with Toe 2 Toe Boxing

January 1 marks one-year in operation for Toe 2 Toe Boxing. We are so grateful for the community’s support…especially during the crazy, tumultuous year we all just endured. If you haven’t had the opportunity to come check us out yet, we would love to meet you! Toe 2 Toe Boxing offers classes for all ages and abilities. We start as young as four-years-old and have some clients well into their 70’s. Prior experience is not required! Come as you are. All of our classes are centered on boxing fundamentals while incorporating agility, footwork, balance, and endurance skills for a full-body, high-intensity workout. Each class is different, so you’ll never get bored. In fact, our motto is “Cardio doesn’t have to be boring!” Our kids classes focus on building boxing skills while also teaching discipline and respect while building self-esteem and self-worth. Visit our website for our calendar of classes and to learn more ( and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram @toe2toeboxingkeizer. First class is always free so if it’s not your thing – that’s okay!

Why Boxing?

Hi there! Adam here, Head Coach and Owner of Toe 2 Toe Boxing. Opening Toe 2 Toe Boxing has been a life-long dream of mine. Boxing is a sport that I have been passionate about for decades and I enjoy sharing my love for the sport with others. And once you’re here, you’ll understand what I mean when I say that “It’s so much more than just boxing.” Our gym is all about camaraderie, community, and self-improvement. There are no egos allowed in here so please don’t feel intimated if this is something that interests you. And best of all, we have a ton of fun while we are here!

So, what’s to come for Toe 2 Toe?

2022 is going to be a really fun year at Toe 2 Toe Boxing. We are continuing to expand our programming and class offerings. We are also working to start our own nonprofit to support low-income youth and individuals with disabilities by providing scholarships to provide boxing classes and training for free.

We are located at 1130 Candlewood Dr. #103 in Keizer, Oregon. Call us at 503.438.6352.
