MÉRIDA, Yucatan – The new Municipal Gymnasium, located in the Juan Pablo II subdivision, will be ready in December of this year and will offer sports activities for the population, as well as self-defense and boxing techniques lessons.


So far, the metal structure building is 45 percent complete and will have dressing rooms, bathrooms for men and women, an office, a warehouse, and an esplanade to house a boxing ring, an exercise area, and a parking lot.
The new Municipal Gymnasium will have 2,800 square meters of intervention and 1,020 square meters of building, representing a total investment of 7,383,514.13 pesos.

The Director of Public Works, David Loría Magdub, pointed out that the Municipal Gymnasium is being built through two public bidding contracts.

One of the contracts is for the construction of the office module, guard house, lobby, and gymnasium area, which includes a concrete floor, perimeter fencing and metal structure roofing, as well as the construction of an access plaza. This work will be completed next November.

Likewise, the second bidding includes the construction of a restroom module with showers and dressing rooms for men and women, which should be ready by December of this year.

More gyms in Merida
The Mérida City Hall currently has two free boxing schools located in the Ciudad Caucel and San José Tecoh sports units, where around 200 people attend.
The training is given by renowned Yucatecan trainers, such as Abraham “Baloo” Falcón, in Caucel, and Susana Salazar Ruíz and Ángela Rendón, in San José Tecoh.

The only two women who exercise the role of trainer in the State are part of those gyms; besides Susana Salazar was a national Olympic medalist in 2010 and in 2019, director of the Mexican Women’s National Team that traveled to Guatemala, made up of champions and runners-up of the Olympic Festival.

They also have professional boxing coaches such as Iván “Sonrics” Ramírez, Jéssica Basulto, Víctor “Vago” Durán, Roque “Tejón” Mex, Alberto “Malachito” Chuc, among others.

Not to mention, the Caucel boxing school has won medals in the State and Regional Phase of the Conade National Games.
