I have been reading this board for a couple months now and have learned a lot and wanted to thank you guys first.

I will be moving to belize starting in May for 2 years. I will be attending medical school(Medical University of the Americas-MUA) and I will be looking for a place a mile or two south of town and was wondering if any of you guys know if there is a gym(besides oscars way up north) boxing or martial arts school?

I am so excited to move down there(im coming from NY) being that Im such a beach bum and would hopefully make my stay there more tolerable being that i will be at school most of the time during the week. Thanks to you guys I know where all the good bars are so i can keep sane laugh
Thnx again guys I appreciate the help!

The new tennis club is S of town and has a large gym. No boxing that I am aware of. I think there is a martial arts place but can't remember where I saw it.

The new tennis club also has a very nice pool-big too. The gym is equipped with good, new equipment.
Enjoy your stay.

MMA4life,

Hey man, I dont know about a gym, but nothing beats an early morning jog right as the sun begins to rise out on the sea wall, its great. Nothing like it, perfect. Good luck with school.

The tennis club has a gym and is located 1/2 mile south of town on the west side. It's prices are higher than Oscar's but the equipment is newer. I myself go to Oscar's because it has the equipment I'm looking for and is a total gym. I checked out the tennis club gym and it wasn't for me, but I do know somebody that gets very good workouts there.

There isn't a martial arts place that I know of. I did see a sign that says martial arts, but at closer viewing proved to be accupuncture or massage, etc...
