40 Rego’s Gym

Established: 1980

Philosophy: Nothing for Nothing

Founder: The Late Allan “Forty” Rego

General Information: Allan “Forty” Rego started training people in the early 1950s and had continued out of his “lion’s den” home gym right up until his recent passing in February 2018. His legacy will continue on through the work of the countless others he had influenced and coached throughout the years. The 40 Rego’s Gym motto of “Small Gym, Big Knowledge” was truly evidenced through the constant output of champions from its humble Warwick location. Most recently he had worked to groom AndreLambe and Tyler Christopher, who together are 2/3rds of the Bermuda National Boxing Team as he supported them in their bid to delay turning professional to pursue their Olympic dream. Mr. Rego had become well regarded as the island’s most revered trainer and is a quintessential Bermudian Hero. The Bermuda Boxing Federation with your help will be honored to help to cement his legacy by allowing his athletes to reach their dream and helping to groom and inspire the next generations, as Mr. Rego did.
