The garage where Jose Perez set up his boxing gym costs about $550 to rent per month. The fee to join the gym is $40, and with only four members this month, there’s no profit being made. “We don’t do it because of the money,” said Perez. “We actually lose money. We do it so the kids can have somewhere to train.” He invests his own money into the gym and will even let people train for free if they can’t afford the monthly fee. He purchased all the equipment himself, including the bags, weights, gloves and wraps, so that everyone has all the tools they need to become a boxer.
