Mayweather Boxing + Fitness, the group fitness experience combining immersive training with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather’s techniques, is looking to soon open a new location in Richmond.

The gym will open at 22377 Bellaire Blvd., Richmond, in the first quarter this year, according to a Nov. 23 announcement. The gym will use methods developed throughout Mayweather’s 21-year undefeated boxing career with a combination of boxing, strength and cardio conditioning.

The opening will mark local entrepreneur Teresa Welch’s first opening in the Houston area with plans to open one more in the near future, according to the announcement.

“I’ve always been a firm believer in the phrase, health is wealth,” Welch said in the announcement. “Opening my own Mayweather Boxing + Fitness studio not only lets me get back to a healthier version of me, but also gives me the chance to operate a business that pushes people to grow to their full potential and produce true community role models.”

Class options include 45 and 60 minutes that use state-of-the-art smart screen technology to project Floyd’s image throughout the duration of the class.


The Richmond location will mark the brand’s expansion throughout Houston and the state of Texas. Based in Los Angeles, the gym has over 50 locations open or in presale across the United States. www.mayweather.fit
