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.

Lara Karakatsanis

Hi, I’m Lara. I’ve loved boxing for as long as I can remember and have personally been involved in the sport for the last 6 yrs. 

I’m a registered Combat Sports Authority Trainer and hold a Bacheleor of Applied Science degree in Occupational Therapy. I’ve spent over 20 yrs helping injured individuals to rehabilitate and achieve their goals. I’m just as passionate in helping you achieve your training goals through boxing.

But beware! I’m a mum of 3 boys so I run a tight ship! Young or old, brand new to the sport or boxing for years, I expect you to give it your all! Commit to working hard and I can assure you that you’ll get stronger and fitter and have a lot of fun along the way.


Hi I’m Shadie, a registered combats sports trainer. I have been involved in a variety of sports from a young age and took up combat sports in my early teen years. 

I have recently taken up personal training,  specialising in boxing and conditioning training. I have experience in both individual and group training. I aim to support and empower my clients to meet their fitness and health goals. 

Training to me has always been not just about physical health, but mental health as well. I believe that in order to build a strong body, you have to build a strong mind first. I’d love to be a part of your fitness journey.




My name is Alex and I'm one of the trainers at Gairy St Clair's Boxing Fitness Gym. Martial arts and weight training have both been an important and constant part of my life and I believe that martial arts and keeping fit are integral to physical and mental wellbeing.

Over the years I've trained extensively in kung fu, muay thai, Brazilian jiu jitsu, a bit of wrestling and most recently boxing. I believe that every discipline of fighting has important principles that you can learn from and I try to combine these principles into my boxing classes where appropriate. Because of this, my 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!
