Had played other sports before it, but nothing compared to the thrill of competing against someone else one on one. My father used to drive me to different boxing gyms and I hopped around with him to so many different places. It was a great time to bond and learn what it meant to grow up. I attended East Stroudsburg University and started a boxing club. It was then what I learned what it meant to be a teacher. I fell in love with training others especially kids who didn’t necessarily get a fair chance. I then ran my own boxing gym for 10 years in PA. After that I went on to become the head boxing trainer for an MMA professional who went on to compete at Dana White’s Tuesday Night Fights event. I then moved into NYC where I become a boxing trainer and then ultimately started my own boxing gym there as well. Again catering to kids. I began the development of a product called Quiet Punch, a home boxing solution. I am now working for myself full time at Quiet Punch, have brought on 7 investors, and have been rapidly growing the business. We now sell on average close to 1,000 units a month and have a growing online user base. My true passion is helping others along the lines of fitness and staying sharp and being happy.
