Born in Georgetown Guyana in 1975, Gairy began boxing at the age of 9, representing his native country of Guyana at the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Canada. He went on to compete in 21 professional boxing contests in Guyana, America and Canada before moving to Australia in 2001 to continue his boxing career.
Under the guidance of legendary Australian trainer Johnny Lewis, Gairy went on to capture the IBF and IBO Junior Lightweight world titles from then five-time world champion Cassius Baloyi. Gairy retired with professional boxing record of 60 bouts (46 wins, 2 draws, 12 losses). Gairy is regarded by many boxing experts as one of the most technically skilful and defensive boxers of his generation.
Gairy wanted to share his skills and knowledge in boxing training and fitness and opened up the Gairy St Clair Boxing Fitness gym in 2017.
Shane is a qualified Australian Combat and Exercise (ACE) boxing and group fitness instructor he has formal fitness qualifications having studied through The Australian Institute of Fitness (AIF) and also holds a current CPR and First Aid Certificate.
Shane has a strong enthusiasm for all thing fitness, health and general wellbeing. He has taught a number of class disciplines but he specialises in cardio boxing and traditional strength training putting it in his words “there is never a bad moment once the gloves are on”.
Shane particularly loves the energy that a group class generates and believes that class intensity is important but classes should also be about fun and social interaction. His favourite exercise is “the Plank”. Shane has been part of the family at Gairy St Clair Boxing Fitness since July 2017.
Alex has been a trainer with us for many years.
Over the years he has trained extensively in Kung Fu, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu jitsu, a bit of wrestling and most recently boxing.
He believes every discipline of fighting has important principles that you can learn from and he combines these principles into his boxing classes where appropriate.
Martial arts and weight training are a constant part of Alex’s life and keeping fit is an integral to physical and mental well being.
Because of this, Alex’s classes focus more on technique and cater for those who have an interest in the “sweet science” of boxing, but that’s not to say you won’t get a good sweat up too.
Hope to see you in class and help you on your journey, whether that be as a beginner or someone looking to sharpen their boxing skills.
See you in the gym!
