How do I become an EBF Trainer?
The first step is to sign up for the EBF Trainer Certification. Following an introductory Skype call, you’ll begin watching videos, practicing movements (“homework”), and uploading test videos of yourself performing and teaching what you learn. To graduate, earn a passing grade on all test video uploads or attend one of our Certification Events. At the Certification Event, you can complete in-person tests to accelerate or complete your certification. To teach at an EBF Facility, contact an EBF Head Trainer via your Trainer Portal.
What do I learn in Fight School?
Fight School will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to teach boxing fitness and grow your career as a boxing fitness professional. Start with the EBF Trainer Certification, which will provide the foundation for additional Fight School certifications.
What do I learn in the EBF Trainer Certification course?
The EBF Trainer Certification covers the fundamental elements of boxing fitness, including boxing footwork, offense, defense, and combinations, as well as basic strength and conditioning exercises. The EBF Trainer Certification includes:
- FIGHT Class Series Fundamentals (Boxing, Exercises, Tools and Resources)
- Your choice of a Class Certification (Train, Bags, Road or Body)
The EBF Trainer Certification prepares you to teach the FIGHT at any EverybodyFights facility.
If I have other fitness certifications, can I earn Continuing Education Credits in Fight School?
Yes! The EBF Trainer Certification is recognized by NASM, AFAA and ACE. Earn the following CEUs for completing your certification:
- NASM: 0.7 CEUs
- AFAA: 7 CEUs
- ACE: 1.2 CECs
Do I have to attend a Certification Event to complete my EBF Trainer Certification?
Nope! Our quarterly Certification Events are recommended, but optional. They are an opportunity for you to complete tests in person to accelerate or complete the certification process. Certification Events are complimentary for Fight School students. To view upcoming events, please click here.
What will I learn at a Certification Event?
Certification Events will focus on teaching – you’ll learn how to teach our FIGHT Class and get experience leading a group. Certification Events are also an opportunity to complete tests in person, rather than via video uploads. Note! You must still watch the educational videos in your online Trainer Classroom to learn the movements on which you’ll be tested. We recommend completing as much of the learning online as possible before attending the event.
What happens after I complete my Certification?
You are ready to begin teaching boxing fitness anywhere! If you want to teach the EBF FIGHT Class series, you can contact an EBF Head Trainer via your Trainer Portal to inquire about trainer positions.
Who should get EBF Certified?
Fitness professionals and enthusiasts with a desire to learn the art of boxing and empower individuals to discover their inner fighter.
Is there a demand for EBF Trainers?
EverybodyFights is currently growing, with plans to expand and franchise globally. As such, the demand for EBF Trainers will continue to grow. The EBF Trainer Certification is your license to teach the FIGHT at any EverybodyFights location. Note! Because the EBF Trainer Certification is a specialty certificate, some EBF facilities (i.e. EBF BOX) may require a general group exercise certificate to teach at their facility. Be sure to inquire about the requirements to teach at a specific location.
Is there Continuing Education available?
Fight School continuing education includes Class Series Certifications and Specialty Certifications.

Do I receive anything for completing Fight School Continuing Education?

Does my EBF Trainer Certification expire?
The EBF Trainer Certification is valid for one year. To renew your certification, you must complete one Fight School Continuing Education Course per year ($199).
EBF-certified trainers can purchase an Active Trainer License ($99/year), which includes the required Continuing Education course, as well as access to the EBF Trainer APP and recognition as an EBF Trainer through placement of a custom profile on the EBF Global Directory.
I already teach and/or personal train at a gym. Will I be able to teach the EBF FIGHT classes there if I become certified?
You may incorporate everything you learn about boxing fitness into your current classes or training sessions; however, your gym may not list the FIGHT Class Series (BAGS, TRAIN, BODY or ROAD) on their schedule unless they become an EBF Franchise Partner. Learn more about EBF Franchise here.

All events are complimentary to Fight School students, but to earn the Specialty Certification credential, you must enroll in the Specialty Certification course online. A schedule of Certification Events can be found here.
I have additional questions. Who should I contact?
We’re here to help! If you have any additional questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s my first time, how early should I arrive for my class?
Fighters should arrive 15 minutes before class. This way you have enough time to check in, grab gloves and wraps, and use the locker rooms.
*All fighters must check in 5 minutes before class or risk losing spot to someone else on waitlist. The Fight goes on!
Is there a Waiver Policy?
All Fighters must sign a waiver prior to their first class or use of the gym.
How do I check into my class?
Step 1 Reserve your Class online with EBF Class Booking App
Step 2 Self-Check in at our Front Desk on one of our IPADS at our Check In Station
Step 3 Drop items in locker room and hit it hard!
What classes do you recommend for beginners?
All of our classes can be modified for different fitness levels. We have 15 types of classes in 5 different categories:
- Fight Classes focus on TECHNIQUE
- Road Classes focus on ENDURANCE
- Train Classes focus on CIRCUIT TRAINING
- Bags Classes focus on BAG WORK
- Flow Classes focus on RESTORATION
We do recommend first timers coming 10-15 minutes before class to get wrapped and meet the class trainer. All trainers are available 5 minutes before class to introduce themselves to anyone who may be new.
Do you rent gloves? Can I buy my own gloves?
Yes! Rental gloves are always available. We also have a wide selection of gloves and wraps for purchase in our Pro Shop. Either way all you have to do is show up and be ready to get down.
Do you clean the rental boxing gloves?
We clean, sanitize, and dry all our gloves, but to be a real fighter we recommend owning your own pair. The glove-fighter relationship is truly something special!
Do I have to know how to box?
Absolutely not! At EverybodyFights® we teach fitness classes that mirror the art of training like a fighter. We don’t think that everybody boxes, but we know that EverybodyFights. Whether you are fighting to be a better boxer, healthier person, or you just want a fun workout and be part of a community, we’re here to support your fight.
What classes actually involve boxing?
All of our BAGS series classes and FIGHT series classes do include boxing and you will need to wrap your hands for your safety. In our TRAIN room, only our TRAINx360 classes involves boxing. It is highly recommended that you wrap your hands for that class as well. All our other classes are inspired by a true fighter’s workout.
Which classes require gloves and wraps?
All BAGS and FIGHT classes require boxing gloves, as do certain TRAIN classes. Rental gloves and community wraps are always free. We offer boxing gloves and wraps for purchase inside our EBF Pro Shop.
How many calories do I burn in the average EBF class?
It all depends on how hard you work and what class you take! For example, a TRAINx360 will lead to more calories burned than a BAGSxCore class, but they’re both important in your overall training regimen. Based on what we’ve tracked, you can burn well over 700 calories in a TRAINx360 class, which is 60 minutes long.
How do I Track my Rounds?
How do I move up Fight Levels?
