  • My Weight loss Journey

    Believe it or not when I stopped Boxing I went from 165 lbs to 220 lbs! Yes, part of it was I wanted to bulk up, but I soon found out that having that much weight is no fun! It was a journey and process to come back down. Even though I intentionally gained weight I still got a first hand experience of all the pitfalls people face with permanent weight loss. I found out that the hardest part wasn’t the exercise, because I already had great Boxing workouts I was doing that were burning literally thousands of calories a day! It was my relationship to food. I didn’t even know what a portion was! I thought that I could out train a bad diet and that just isn't the case. ....

    Unleashing Your Potential With a Boxing Gym Near ME!

    Unleashing Your Potential With a Boxing Gym Near ME! Epictetus wrote “If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid”. We are all concerned with what other people think of us. This can be a good thing, but it can also hold us back. When we start a new workout routine, join a gym or make a life change, others will often make a judgment on us. Most people are great at offering criticism, or wise cracks that aren’t so wise, but lack the presence of mind to be supportive and motivating. What's sad, is that in some Martial arts Facilities, Boxing Gyms and Fitness Facilities they still don’t know how to REALLY treat their clients. ....

    WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING WORKOUT?
    Coach Keith Keppner | May 6th, 2019 There are a lot of fun and challenging fitness routine, but in our opinion boxing is the king! It is a time tested workout that was the original cross training. If you want to know where people got the idea to hit tires with sledgehammers, jump rope or many other forms of training, boxing is the root of most of them. Unfortunately boxing in the past has a bad wrap of just getting beat on. IT’S NOT! Sure back in the old days it was just dark and dirty gyms that were honestly pretty violent places, but now with gyms like ours it’s way different! There are so many programs where you never even ....
