Valley Kings Gym was founded by Faisel Ghazghazi, a former professional boxer and MMA fighter, who was moved to help the children in Hurghada, Egypt, after visiting on holiday. You can read his story on the Youth Academy that he has launched here.
Our staff are professional and largely volunteering for the Youth Academy.
What we do Best
Valley Kings Gym Hurghada provides professional boxing and MMA classes for adult male and female members, and free classes for local children through our Fighting for Futures Youth Training Academy.
The ethos of the gym is that it is a safe space, run with discipline and respect. The children and adults who attend must agree to the codes of conduct, and show each other respect at all times.
The Youth Academy is paid for by sponsors, donations. We are non-profit and all proceeds go towards the children’s classes and increasing opportunities for more children to join.

As a professional MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighter, Faisel Ghazghazi has used his 10-year experience as a professional trainer to set up, coordinate and manage gyms in the UK. Having had a difficult start in life himself, helping disadvantaged children has always been a passion of his and he has always been involved in running youth groups.
He has run several projects to enable children with limited funds and opportunity to be able to benefit from the experience of learning to box. Not only does he strongly believe in the benefits of learning a sport that is based on discipline, perseverance, and respect; it is also a way to give children self-worth, social skills, keep fit, and to believe in themselves.
His experience previously with training, coaching, and mentoring and as a youth project manager enabled him to create a successful project plan that benefits the local community and will have a long-term positive impact on the lives of young children here. He talked with the children and their families and listened to what they wanted to gain from the facility, and from this we have designed a project that can engage with them, that will match their needs and exceed their expectations.
Having previously volunteered and launched youth projects in the UK (Boxfit at the YMCA in Bridgwater, Wellington Revive Youth Project, Box Clever, Taunton, Fixers project in Bristol) Faisel’s experience meant he could kick start the project funding and give his time and experience to run the project. A lot of hard work, sweat, and determination later, the gym is open.
