About this pro

The pandemic has allowed me to focus on training 

Most boxing classes are general work out classes with a lot of people in one class. This stops the trainer from being able to fully help you because his focus is divided. I am offering 1 on 1 sessions to fully maximize your training. There are total body workout sessions as well but I will teach you technique and proper form

Many franchise gyms have trainers with no sparring or practical boxing experience that will still charge $40-$100 on a private session

I have trained hundreds of people and many have gone on to compete and succeed.

For:

People who have never boxed and want to try

People with limited boxing experience

People who have never worked out in their life or haven’t worked out in years

Competition level boxers

People who want a different way to do cardio

People who want to learn how to defend themselves

Men, women, and children of all ages

I guarantee that after 1 session: you will know the bare basics and will get a good workout catered to your fitness level and needs

After 1 month (of at least 2-3x a week) you will master all the different types of punches and basic combos

After 3 months (of at least 2-3x a week) you can stop going and know how to conduct your own basic training without doing it wrong. You will be sufficient enough to not look like a fool in front of actual boxers

If you want to continue, after 6 months: be good enough to compete on the amateur level. If you don’t want to compete you will never be pressured to

After 1 year: you will be able to do advanced combos, workouts, and be able to spar with almost anyone.

The goal is to get you to not need me anymore (except for the competition fighters).

Message here to schedule and get more info. It will be in a Bartlett home where there is no chance to get Covid and equipment will be properly cleaned. 

Monday-Friday 6am - 6pm. Custom hours depends on request and availability

If you want to add someone with you it’s only $15 per add on. I will not work with more than 4 people in one session as it diminishes the time I can work with you.

    The lessons are amazing. I look forward to every class. The work outs are exactly what I was searching for. This has been an awesome find. Thank you lessons.com for matching me with this teacher, and thank you Albert for your energy and pushing me to do better. I have dropped 10 pounds in 5 classes. Seeing results and feeling healthier. Thank you again.

  • Brian Fischer

    I’m 47 years old and I gained a lot of weight over the years so I found coach Albert on this app. I’ve always wanted to box but never found any time. Initially I wanted to do a boxing class but I was afraid of mingling with a lot of people and possibly contracting Covid since I have health risks. I’ve only been boxing for a month but I’ve already lost 8 pounds. It’s in a nice suburban house with enough space. I can confidently say this is the best thing I’ve done for myself this past year.

    Working with coach Albert is great. I was a competitive cheerleader but got a slipped disc a few years ago so I haven’t been physically active since. I’ve never boxed before and don’t really care about competing so I wasn’t interested at first. My friend introduced me to coach Albert and I fell in love with hitting the pads after one session. It’s a huge stress reliever and I get the best workouts because I need someone to push me and he has the perfect balance of strict but friendly. I 100% recommend him if you want a great workout and want to feel healthy while learning a new skill.

  • Freddy B.

    My son is 12 years old and has never really played sports before. He tried baseball and soccer for a few weeks each but was never engaged because he’s very shy. Coach Albert has been instilling discipline and confidence every session and I can see my son growing up in front of me. We’ve only had 10 sessions and my sons posture is better, he knows how to hit the pads, and he is finding himself more and more with every session. I would rate 10/5 stars if I could.

FAQs


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

I create a personalized plan for each student based on personal goals 

First thing taught is proper form and technique

Once technique is perfect, speed, power, and intensity of the moves are worked on 

After just one session, the student is able to sufficiently throw a punch. After a few sessions, the student will learn exponentially.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Former Boxer

Taught many competition level boxers

Multiple sport medalist and athlete

Taught hundreds of students how to defend themselves, hit weight goals, and/or fight


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

$20 for a 1 hour session. (To put it in perspective, many trainers charge $50+ for one hour)

$150 for a 10 card punch pack amounting to $15 per 1 hour session


How did you get started teaching?

Trained brother to compete in district and regional tournaments


What types of students have you worked with?

Every type of student with every type of body composition. I have worked with children as young as 5 to my oldest student who was 78 and needed a way to be active. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I had a 6 year old student frustrated with his inability to jump rope more than 3 times in a row. I told him that it's okay to be frustrated, but just because something is hard, it doesn't mean to quit. After a few more minutes of calming down and a pep talk we were able to get 5 jumps in a row. 3 months later, the kid can do over 220 jumps in a 3 minute session. 


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

Technique, technique, technique. You can always get stronger and faster, but if you learn technique the wrong way the first time, it can take a while to forget the initial wrong technique and relearn the correct technique.

It pains me to say I have seen countless trainers who have never stepped in a ring do "workout boxing." The trainer holds the focus mitts wrong, they teach wrong technique that they learned off YouTube and got an online certificate for, and they focus more on getting the student tired than actually learning anything useful.

Before committing to a teacher, ask that teacher to shadow box or hit the bag. If it looks funny, that teacher probably doesn't know how to box. You can't teach what you don't know so be wary of these fake teachers. That goes for any sport. If you're learning basketball make sure your teacher can shoot and dribble. I can't tell you how many times I see a muscular trainer trying to teach boxing. It's usually not good. 


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

Can my trainer box?

Can my trainer explain things in a simple way?

Can my trainer help me reach my goals?

Am I progressing after every single session or am I learning too many different things every time I come?
