A Visit to Gleason’s Gym

At Gleason’s Gym from Heather Quinlan on Vimeo.

Gleason’s Gym in Dumbo was one of those places I’d always wanted to visit, but never quite checked off my list. A couple months ago I finally got the opportunity when I covered the De La Hoya press conference, and I was completely hooked. Oscar De La Hoya, Paulie Malignaggi, AND I scored an interview with the great Bert Sugar. I had to go back!

Owner Bruce Silverglade and his staff were terrific, and I was allowed to stay as long as I liked, which took me by surprise, as I’m used to being shooed away after a couple minutes—I got so much footage my battery nearly exploded. So come take a tour of the gym, lead by a trainer called Country.
