Boyd Allen & Craig Toontas

The Apex Gym was ideated and founded by Boyd Allen in 2018. Joined by his friend and training partner Craig Toontas. The two set out to change the face of martial arts gyms in South Africa. They had one dream in mind, to build a place that was about their community first. A place where women and children would feel revered and protected. Newcomers would feel welcomed with open arms and the helpless could find help. Moving to their new state of the art facility in the heart of Sandton this dream has become a reality. Boyd and Craig welcome all ages and experience levels to come and experience what it feels like being a part of The Apex Army. See you soon.

Student Reviews


Apex is an accommodating environment for everyone. More so, the coaches are extremely brushed up on their knowledge of each sport. Coming to Apex you see a lot of males because naturally men are more inclined to take part in a fighting sport than women. Despite this, I feel safe and comfortable in the gym. Not only are the men good people, but the coaches follow up to ask if you’re okay and if they can assist you in anyway. 

Don’t forget the chunes.”

Apex has quite literally become a home away from home for me. Apex provides not only training but an environment to study, take online meetings, or even just to relax with friends between lectures. LIFT Coffee serves incredible coffee and great WiFi – all the essentials for a university student.

It’s also no secret that the training at Apex is world class, being an affiliate under Richard Quan. The healthy competitive atmosphere within the Apex Army provides you with amazing training and lessons that transcend that sport of boxing and BJJ itself. I couldn’t be more thankful for the gym, coaches, and the friends I’ve made along the way. I look forward with excitement to see how Apex grows in the near future – I honestly couldn’t recommend a better gym to join.

This is the worst gym in SA if not the world. Besides the  World Class Training, unbelievable Tunes from DJ Flame and unrivalled comradery, it has been a let down. Also I hate the fact that it is so addictive, I came here once and never left. Try for yourself, you will hate it too.
