Maleek Jackson Fitness Boxing Gym
Founded by Maleek Jackson, this gym's mission is to bring passion and energy to everyone who comes inside. Our gym is a community as much as it is a place to workout and train. Maleek Jackson and his trainers have trained clients from total beginners to professional boxers, as well professional athletes and celebrities such as Joe Flacco, Dion Waiters, and Meek Mill.
Maleek Jackson knows all about pain and struggle. He was born in the heart of South Philadelphia and became involved in a life of crime during his teenage years. At the tender age of 16, Maleek was sentenced to 8-16 years in the State Penitentiary. After spending ten years of his life in prison, Maleek decided to start all over. He discovered his love for boxing and fitness in prison, and he decided to turn his dreams into a reality.
