How It All Started
EverybodyFights® (EBF) was founded by George Foreman III, son of George Foreman Sr. George III spent his entire youth absorbing the history and art form that is boxing and boxing training. He went on to pursue his own professional boxing career in 2009 and finished with a perfect 16-0 record.
In 2013, George set out to bring the art of boxing fitness to the masses when he opened his test lab in Boston: The Club by George Foreman III. George designed an entirely new, holistic fitness program that combined proven training methodologies both he and his father used, with new school high-intensity interval training elements.
EverybodyFights offers the ultimate workout for the everyday fighter. Using his Boston test facility and his patented boxing fitness workout, George built EverybodyFights into the dominant fitness brand in the boxing space.
The Club has evolved to become EBF’s flagship facility, a boxing fitness mecca that has won numerous awards and been the recipient of much praise in the Boston community and beyond. It is on this foundation that the EverybodyFights team is ready to scale the brand into a national platform, with franchising being a key element of the expansion plan.
EverybodyFights was born out of the belief that anything worth having is worth fighting for.
We live by the notion that fighting is not a sport; it’s a spirit. It’s the spirit that reminds us of our champion nature. It’s the spirit that tells us that success is not defined by wins or losses; it’s defined by maintaining an undying optimism that if we wake up every day ready to fight, we will win.
This is what my father instilled in me, and this is what EverybodyFights is all about. Challenges are what make us “Fighters.” They either break our soul or build us up. We can ignore them, deny them, avoid them, displace them, or forfeit them, or we can fight: for our dignity, our redemption, our health, our happiness, our freedom, and our lives.
We all have the choice to leave the ring, or any life situation, as a victim or a fighter. It’s our attitude that decides the outcome. EverybodyFights is what I believe in: helping everyone unleash his or her inner fighter. Say it, wear it, share it, but above all, believe it: EverybodyFights.
