Ready to start your fitness journey?

Getting in shape is a journey not a race. When you work out, you're putting stress on your immune system, tearing muscle fibers and risking injury thus "whipping yourself into shape."  If you punish yourself more than your body is prepared to recover, you will fail.

Boxing is my first and only true love. I've gone through many emotionally tough moments. I am still going through them, yet, when I'm training, all of those problems and negative situations go away. I feel my best when I'm in training and I wouldn't give that away for nothing. There are many reasons, one of them is that the sport that I love has been with me through every tough time that I've encountered in my life. I've abandoned the sport many times, I've failed the sport many times, yet, it always brings me back and picks me back up. It's the only thing that is there when I'm at my lowest point. Boxing is a metaphor for life and it has made me a better person. Boxing also has made me appreciate life, it has given me an additional purpose and it has taught me that many things will leave me before it. Boxing is my true passion. It is my life, so much so, that I am dedicated to becoming

a legend in the sport. With the support of my trainer, Rudy (Head Coach, Ruldolph Pongnon), I will become one of boxing's biggest attractions. Thank you for not leaving my side when other things that I used to appreciate more than you left.

Although I have not coached a fight in a year and a half due to various extenuating circumstances, I presided over 15 in my first year and a half. None of my athletes' have been knocked out, pummeled to the point that they had to quit or cut in a fight. It would be hard to find a trainer who coached just 5 and none of those things happened. 


My trainer was a professional fighter. Although I did not have the opportunity to compete at that level, I'm still pursuing the possibility, please read the following petition on Change.org: https://www.change.org/p/sign-away-your-life-usa-boxing-will-tell-you-what-to-do-with-it. I fought in the Golden Gloves, 3 times, the New York City Metro's and various amatuer shows.


My clients' and athletes' are like family to me and there are people that require special acknowledgment. My ex-trainer Edwin Martinez, if I hadn't met him I probably would have quit boxing. He opened my eyes to various possibilities in terms of athletic innovation, and his encouragement to research sports science was indispensable in my evolution as a coach and trainer. 


Danny Mejia, he trusted me with his career and displayed boundless courage and faith. He did not have a stellar record, and I accept the blame. He pushed me more than anyone else to become a better trainer and athlete. 


Aubrey Williams who like a number of individuals that came before him, proved that he is capable of being a better athlete than I even imagined, he has been pivotal in helping to furthering my progress as a coach as well as Dave Munoz; a coach/trainer grows by evaluating the impact of their methods on their athletes' or clients' performance; and finally, Joel Whyte who has stood with me throughout this  journey from the moment we met three years ago; his persistent belief in me cannot be quantified in words . 

I want to thank every athlete or client who put faith in my ability to guide them to excel at pugilism or any other fitness goal. I specialize in Philly Shell Boxing, I am a defensive oriented coach. I also teach techniques that can be used in street situations. 


There are certain professions that require a specific disposition and qualities, among them, love of people, wisdom and social intelligence parenting, teaching, being a coach and personal trainer are among them. I am confident 2018 will be our best year yet, and I am excited to ensure every member of our team is able to achieve their goals, thank you for taking the time to read this and God bless.
