Official welcome from the owner, Grady Stewart

Why being grateful is good for business – from boxing to BJJ – Perth’s newest but most decorated team arrives.

Grady’s Gym would like to take time to thank all of our members. Without out you we wouldn’t be able to live the life we enjoy. As you all know we are just a few months old.  It’s incredible that in such a short time, we have had guys fight for regional, national, and world titles. It’s amazing that we have been blessed with so much talent.

I feel like I reconnect with long lost family with each and every person that walks through the door of Grady’s Gym.

Sharing a passion for boxing, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), Muay Thai, Kickboxing and the whole living life to its fullest – I feel excited about seeing all of you, every day.

I feel like I get to go to the movies every day with the hilarious, crazy, inspiring and at time sad stories but I feel blessed because I hear and see them every week.

The fact that I get to teach you what I know, from Hollyfield’s training camp to Balcatta, while torturing you into the best athlete imaginable. I couldn’t ask for anything more!

Since opening in November 2015, Grady’s Gym is already home to Australia’s best fighters who push themselves to become better at their sport every week – whether it’s our Fighter Prep class or Yoga – no doubt you’ve seen them around.

I want to send a very special thank you to Danny Green for all the support he has given me personally as well as being a huge supporter of the vision we have at Grady’s Gym. The experience and success to date wouldn’t be possible without champions like the ever so charismatic Angelo Hyder and Tony Tolj.

Also want to take a moment to recognise the likes of Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne, Australia’s first Heavyweight Champion, who has all the time in the world to help the young guys come up.

And with fighters such as Victor Oganov, Xavier “X-Man” Lucas, Paul “The Main Man” Morrison,  Rob “Powerdrill” Powdrill, Diogo Consini, Luke “Razor” Sharp,  Steve “The Steam Rolla” Kennedy, Pat “Whack One” Enya our amateurs are in good company. Not to mention our class of new guys like Mehdi “Neopolian” Roubach, Brock Donald, and many more.

One things for sure, the culture at Grady’s Gym is all about being real and if you’re ever in the area, these guys are easily approachable and always ready to help not just new fighters, but every member, the lifeblood of our gym.

I started Grady’s Gym because I know what it’s like to find good people and my goal is to be welcoming to everyone. Never will there be any cliques.

Everyone can have the piss taken at anytime, and that’s always in good humour.

Again thank you to everyone that has helped out!

P.S. Special Thanks goes out to Dayle “Old Man” Phillips for being the glue that holds the gym together. Even though he’s a grouch and has a rash. We would also like to wish him luck going after his dreams of being a jockey.
