'The Burrow' is the first of its kind in Kuwait, but only adds to the growing number of stylish boxing gyms popping up in cities across the world. The Burrow fuses retro boxing gym aesthetics with contemporary amenities. Through the use of multiple materials -- concrete, ceramic tile, steel, wood and glass -- a unique interplay of traditional and modern design is achieved.

A bright and airy lobby welcomes gym-goers, contrasted with a tight and narrow hallway which navigates boxers through the changing areas and into the main workout space. An elevated boxing ring is dramatically lit, with a variety of workout spaces surrounding it. A Crossfit section on one side, punching bags on the other, as well as a range or free weights and stationary bikes. A mezzanine doubles as additional workout space, while providing clear views of the boxing ring.
