About Me


When I was a kid growing up in the South Bronx  NY, gyms were owned by guys in sweats and t-shirts, not suits and ties. They knew you by your name, not your membership number. I want you to feel the same way when you join Boxing Fitness NYC. You won’t get scared to death walking in or bored to death working out.

The most important thing to know is this – anyone can learn how to box. Boxing may be a science, but it isn’t rocket science. No matter what your Athletic IQ is, i can teach you how to pick up your hands and defend yourself.

Learning how to box can be intimidating enough. Where you do it shouldn’t be. Most people think it’s getting hit. It isn’t. It’s hitting someone else.  If you hit me, I’ll live with it. If I hit you, I have to live with myself. Everybody knows what they can’t do. It’s what they can do that scares them.

Fear is the great motivator. We’re physically wired for it. Fight, flight, freeze or faint. Pick one. Then train for it. Boxing isn’t fighting. One is a sport, the other is an instinct.

We take behaviors and turn them into habits, then we take those habits and turn them into new instincts. Everybody has two identities – the one you’re born with and the one you live with. Who you are is not who you were. Every fighter has a ring name.
