About this pro

 I have been involved in boxing since 1980 and rose to the #3 spot in the USA as a 165 pound amateur middleweight before turning professional in 1988. I became a world ranked contender and fought for the world light heavyweight championship in 1996. After my career was over I became a professional trainer and have trained, among many others, four world champions (in bouts televised on Pay-Per-View, HBO and Showtime)

Mentally, physically and emotionally I pride myself on my ability to improve and level of client, from a pure beginner to a reigning world champion.

I love seeing (and helping them) people IMPROVE, mentally and physically!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I go according to the wilingness, goals and abilities of each student. EVERYONE is different.

I have had over 100 amateur and professional matches...trained four national championship amateurs and four world champion professionals.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge the most reasonable price in my field. 40 dollars per four of one on one training (or 60 dollars per hour for two persons)

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Honestly? Too many to mention. The improvement of clients is a daily and often dramatic happening.  

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find someone with REAL EXPERIENCE. In my sport, there is NO substitute for experience. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Will I be overly sore? How soon should I see results? How many times per week should we meet? What can I do at home to supplement our workouts?
