The Corner Boxing Club, a training center founded by former USA Boxing member and coach Carrie Barry, recently signed a lease at a building in east Boulder.

The Corner Boxing Club will occupy a nearly 3,800-square-foot space at 5500 Central Ave., Suite 115, in the Flatiron Office Park, Barry said.

Pending the timing of approval for a use review application filed with the city's planning department, the boxing club could open by early May, she said.

Barry, who also serves as a coach and mentor at Lafayette's Justice High School and the Boulder-based Family Learning Center, said her intention is to create a place that caters to people of all ages, means and abilities.

"No. 1, it starts with community," she said. "All of my opponents when I competed, they were like my brothers and sisters; and all of my coaches, they were like my uncles and aunts."
