John, Oleksiy and me at Gleason’s during a session arranged on SparGym.

By Nat Wilkins, Brooklyn, NY, 11/13/15–If you box, you know it can be tough to keep a fresh flow of sparring partners in the mix. Spend too much time sparring the same few people, and you may become too adapted to a narrow range of styles.

Back in the summer, we introduced our readers to a new site, SparGym, which helps fighters connect with new sparring partners, negotiate the when and the where, then set a time to hit it.

SparGym has been gradually building its member base with founder, Oleksiy Shevchukevych recently adding Trainer account functionality, which allows boxing coaches to manage spars for their fighters. It’s a useful site, one that fills a previously unmet need.
