About James MacDonald

Owner of MacDonald Boxing & Fitness

I have a 2-year old little girl, Chloe MacDonald. This is a big part of why I do what I do! To give her something to be proud of. I nice comfortable place for her an everyone. To make the MacDonald name live on!

I am from a little country town in NSW called Guyra. I am truly blessed to have such supportive and hard-working parents. I learnt the value of hard work from my dad. Mum is a quiet and beautiful human this is why I believe I’m not a loud person. 

At the age of 18 I started boxing, I know what boxing has done for me and I want to share it with others. The other side of boxing I also love to help people. In my spare time I work with the AMAYDA Bullying Prevention Programs, where I mentor children to become more resilient, build courage, learn respect and integrity. Also, while learning self-defence. 

Why I started my gym?

I started this gym out of my love for boxing and to support my family. I want to show Chloe that doing what you love and working hard, can pay off if you take the right risks. 

Ultimately, I want to help people become the best version of themselves and to help achieve their fitness goals. While also learning the art of boxing.

For me boxing is about continual learning and development. Boxing can take you anywhere and give you things no one can take from you. But it takes work and a strong desire to learn. You will be humbled along the way and there will be some tough lessons but it will all be worth it.
