about us


Cricklewood Boxing GYM is a registered charity (charity reg no. 1178198), established by Rob Buick in 2016.

We’re an inclusive club where everyone is welcome and equal, and community is at the heart of everything we do.

From kids and adult mixed classes to 1-2-1 personal training, there is something for everyone, whether you are a beginner wanting to get fit or already a boxer and wanting to become pro, all are welcome to join our friendly team.

As a registered charity, during school holidays, we provide fitness camps for children in the local area from underprivileged homes. As well as fitness activities, we take the kids on day trips and provide a nutritious meal for them each day


I started boxing at the age of 13 and I had my first few fights when boxing was not as popular as it is today. One guy in my club won the County Antrim championship and Ulster championship, then he went to Dublin and won the all Ireland in the same season. His next fight was against me and I won. Although I never was a champion, I always say I beat an all-time Ireland Champion!

I was boxing well in my early 20’s, stopping a lot of guys by KO, but a bad ankle injury made me stop boxing competitively and start teaching. In 2016 I decided to set up Cricklewood Boxing GYM.

We have many talented boxers at Cricklewood Boxing GYM, with members from all backgrounds. This is what boxing is all about. One of my passions is to help those who are struggling in life with school, drugs, alcohol, crime, anti-social behaviour etc… We believe with enough encouragement the best boxers will turn pro and become world champions.”
