About Us

Gumshield Gym was founded in 2001 by Steve Barrett to use boxing as a means of keeping people fit, whilst teaching its values to improve lives.
From 2002 to 2014 it was also the training base of his son, former professional boxer Ryan Barrett, who during a 12-year pro boxing career won the International Masters, British Masters and English titles respectively, and WBU World title in the welterweight division.
