Welcome to the boxing loft

The Boxing Loft is a boutique boxing wellness studio in Toronto’s historic Parkdale neighborhood. Built with a passion to help people reach their full potential, and transform their whole health without nonsensical restrictions.

We provide boxing training, conditioning for health and nutritional guidance and eating plans, small group training, 1 on 1 training, and Coaching on Demand. (easy to follow instructional workout videos.)

We have over 25 years of knowledge and expertise. We know how to resolve the most common issues (lower back pain, time constraints, mental fortitude, low energy, stamina, and uncertainty to name a few) It’s always about you as the client, never about us. Your health matters – No BS  We’ll tell you honestly what you need to do to attain your goals in a reasonable time period. We’re committed to helping our clients achieve and surpass their fitness goals.


With more than 25 years of experience as a boxing and strength & conditioning coach, Emile will hold you accountable to your targets and goals. “I make a personal commitment to each and every client to ensure they reach, and even surpass, their individual fitness goals,” says Coach Emile, who began his own athletic career in track and field.

While competing in the triple jump at the 1996 Olympic Trials, the all-around athlete suffered an injury that made him refocus his energies on boxing. After a brief stint as an amateur, followed by a couple of professional bouts, Emile turned his attention to training fighters through his business, The Boxing Loft.

At the downtown Toronto gym, Coach Emile built Golden Gloves champions, an Ontario Provincial champion, and was the strength and conditioning coach to former World Champion and professional fighter Natasha “The Nightmare” Spence.

Coach Emile has done it all while employing a soft-spoken and compassionate attitude towards all his clients. “I train athletes and adults of all abilities and all ages,” says the Parkdale-based trainer. “Even for those with time constraints, or are brand new to exercising, I’m constantly developing unique workouts to suit their needs and to help them turn their goals into habits.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does The Boxing Loft differ from kickboxing and box-fit classes?
It’s not like a cardio fitness class, rather we focus on proper punching mechanics, footwork, defense, boxing-specific conditioning; all the fundamentals of the sweet science.

Do I need prior boxing experience?
Not at all. You do need to start with our Transformation though to prepare your body for boxing training.

Do I need my own equipment?
To help us adhere to COVID-19 regulations, please bring your own skipping rope, a yoga mat, boxing gloves, and hand wraps (we also sell gloves and wraps on-site). If you pay for six or 12 months of training in full, bag mitts and wraps will be gifted to you.

How often do you recommend I come?
It takes about six months to learn a new skill, so we recommend that you train at least twice a week – three times is ideal. Our brains build neural pathways: the more we practice a skill the more the neurons wire together, called neuroplasticity. Eventually, it gets easier and easier to perform the skill set.

What payment forms do you accept?
You can pay by way of debit, or credit card right here on the website.

Do I need to show proof of vaccination to train (in Toronto and Simcoe)?
No, everyone is welcome at The Boxing Loft. Masks are not mandatory, however, we encourage you to wear one if it provides you safety & comfort. If you have additional concerns, please consider our Coaching On Demand or General Membership packages.

What People Say About The Boxing Loft

Training with a coach at The Boxing Loft has helped me get in the best shape I’ve been in years. At first, all I wanted was to try something new. Friends suggested yoga, but I wanted to try a workout that was outside the box – something easier to prepare for than running or biking, especially as winter was coming on. Coach E’s program has peaked my interest in boxing, helped me become more mentally and physically disciplined, and provided me with a laundry list of workouts I now do almost daily at home in tandem with my training sessions.
-Kevin Younge

Coach Emile brings a true passion to both developing athleticism and technical excellence. His strength and conditioning work is both broad
including not just power and endurance, but speed, balance and coordination – and sport specific.
Training with Coach Emile at TBL has taken my conditioning and my skills to a level I couldn’t have imagined before working with him. Highly recommended whether for general body transformation, sport specific strength and conditioning or to learn true boxing skills.
-Chris Flynn

The Boxing Loft was exactly what I was looking for in a small, focused, local gym. Great for conditioning and boxing training. The workouts are rigorous and the coaching is attentive – great value for all levels. Highly recommended.
-Nicole Fowler

I signed up with Coach Emile because I was suffering from severe back pain. I soon realized that he customized his workouts to make them challenging but not so difficult as to be discouraging. And the back pain has never recurred.

I’ve now been training with him for ten years and credit him with helping me achieve my best level of fitness in many years.
