George Foreman III and Studio Troika design luxury boxing studio for Philadelphia

by Andrew Manns | 13 May 2019
Boxing is more than a sport – it's a lifestyle, and Philadelphians have owned that as well as any other city."
– George Foreman III

George Foreman III – son of the heavyweight prizefighter – and Boston-based practice Studio Troika have designed the EverybodyFights boxing gym in Philadelphia.

Situated in the city's Rittenhouse neighbourhood, the 12,000 sq ft (1,114 sq m) space comprises a full-size boxing ring, multiple classrooms, and an open gym area with free weights and cardio equipment.

Other features include a steamroom, a yoga room, a sports shop, and custom graffiti created by Hailey Loonan (EverybodyFights' creative director) and Studio Fresh.

Although Studio Troika was in charge of the design team, a spokesman from EverybodyFights told CLAD that Foreman and real estate developer and EverybodyFights co-founder Anthony "AJ" Rich" were personally involved in the selection and coordination of the facility's fittings and overall layout.

"They actually work together as a unique 1-2 design combo," he said. "George picks out all the equipment and lays out the training space in a way that makes the most sense, while AJ is responsible for the finer design points, including fixtures, furniture, colour palettes, and materials and also the larger character pieces that have become defining features of EverybodyFights gyms."

Founded in 2013, EverybodyFights, which has venues in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Lexington, KY, is undergoing a nationwide expansion and set to open 20 locations by 2020.
