Rusty beat, ther Reggie Jones ('72 Silver Medalist) to become the New Jersey Middleweight Boxing Champion. The World Title was within his grasp--he believed it was destiny. Then, his manager, Lou Duva, slipped him some pills before a match. How could he take the beating that followed? This book is about the worst that men can do, and how a man can stand back up and fight after he's been knocked down. It's for anyone who's into the sport of boxing, and especially for anyone who needs a hero. Rusty offers a deep personal look into the life and times of a true contender!

I enjoy teaching/training daily. As I am/train, I too are moving constantly, which keeps my cardio/respiratory system strong, & healthy, which keeps me energized. It's a trainers job to get his fighter in elite, physical condition. How can a teacher/trainer expect his fighter to be/get, in elite physical condition if the teacher/trainer is not. Boxing is a very intense sport, & if the fighter cannot meet, & out do his opponents physical condition, even if my fighter has better techniques, if he's not in physical condition to out punch, and turn up his intensity when needed, he loses. When one competes, they compete to win!

    He, Rusty, is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the sport. He also not only keeps himself in elite physical condition, he also makes sure to motivate you into wanting to achieve the same results by following his directives, right until the bell rings ending the two minute round. Resting for the minute break, then right back to moving, or dancing on your types, setting up your next punch, or combination of punches. Rusty is the real deal, by far!

  • Dan Wathen-1989 NCSAStrength and training coach of the year

    It was a privilege to observe the Rusty's Boxercise routine by Rusty Rosenberger. He demonstrated his boxercise routine with a number of our YSU varsity football players. They all were unanimous in their praise of the excise format. Mr. Rosenberger has devised a interval training program that has the physical conditioning of boxing without the danger of physical contact. Balance, coordination, muscular and cardiovascular endurance should be improved in a relatively sort period of time. Rusty is a very experienced teacher/trainer, who guarantee's balance, coordination, muscular endurance, with improvement in a relatively short period of time. Rusty provides motivation to keep the trainee interested and excited throughout the exercise session. I would heartily recommend for interested in general health and weight control. This includes athletes and non-athletes.

    I want to let every one know how exciting the Rusty's Boxercise personalized program is. I trained with Rusty for three months. I'm still as enthusiastic and when I first started. Since training with Rusty, I've noticed big changes in my energy level. Since I've been training with Rusty, I now have an abundance of energy when prior I was hardly making it through the day. I have also dropped two sizes in my clothes, and have lost 15 pounds. I'm now eating low-no fat foods and I anticipate losing more inches and weight. I cannot express how good it is to be able to run a mile and not get weary, or to use the stepper for 20 minutes without losing my breath. I have been an athletic all my life. Step aerobics, running, swimming, tennis, nothing compares to the overall I get from Rusty's Boxercise Fitness program. I'm rejuvenating my energy level, getting muscle definition, and gaining back my youthful figure. I'm looking forward to that bathing suit this summer! I strongly recommend Rusty's Boxercise for everyone. Make a decision to give it a try. I guarantee getting hooked like me will make you glad you tried. I challenge the fittest of fit to try it. They'll be surprised to see how fit they really are!!!

    "Let's get ready to rumble." I know I'm ready and it's because of Rusty Rosenberger's Boxercise. At 16 years old, I started training with Rusty two years ago. I'm involved with my schools cross country, basketball, and track teams. During the off season, I enjoy swimming, tennis, and running road races. None of these however, gives me the physical high that, Boxercise does. The times in my life when I feel I'm in the best shape possible is when I'm Boxercising with Rusty. At one point when I wasn't training with Rusty, I purchased, Tae Bo, I followed the CD's. Not even the Advanced Tae Bow work out could compete with the total body workout that Rusty provides in his 3-2 minute Boxercise program. The exercise CD's offered me no resistance, nothing to push for, while the same workout will be the same as the last time. With Rusty, you never know what to expect. Never are his workouts ever the same. He is a true master at teaching/training almost any one in his, Rusty's "Safe" Boxercise Fitness program! A former boxing champion, amateur, & professional, his love for the sport brings a level of excitement to working out that no CD's could ever do. Despite all his many trophies, & a championship boxing belt from the state of NJ, he was tenacious in the boxing ring. He now possesses a certain gentleness, almost like a like a "sixth sense" when it comes to pushing my physical limits. "Boxercise" has given me skills and taught me techniques in the art of self defense, as well as increased my personal performance levels higher that they've ever been. Thank you, Rusty

FAQs


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

There are many lessons to be taught/learned, and teaching/learning, how/when to breath is most important. Then teaching/learning, foot-work is vital. If your feet remain in the same spot for more than a second, you're hit, and the name of the game, BOXING, is hit, without being hit. Then hand/glove placement, one hand goes on either side of you face, just below your eyes, allowing clear peripheral vision. Learning/teaching the correct way to slip punches being thrown at your face, head. Using your forearm, and elbows to block body punches. Physical conditioning, jumping rope, sit-ups, push-ups, pull-ups. running is vital, toe running, to be exact. When we run, our heels will never hit the payment, we stay on our toes/balls, of our feet, always.  I guarantee, when it's fight time, you'll enter the boxing ring, knowing you're in better physical condition than your opponent. Getting tirerd has no place in the art of boxing!

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

I like being paid for only lessons I teach/train, I require $10.00 per training lesson, per student, and as I've declared prior, I guarantee positive results, fast.


How did you get started teaching?

I fought amateur, & professional. As an amateur, I received the rank of the 6th best middleweight in the USA. As a professional, I fought for the NJ State Middleweight Championship, winning a 12 round unanimous decision. After being drugged by my manager, Lou Duva one hour before fighting the main event on the only fight card ever held inside of, Giants Stadium, I received a career ending injury to my right eye. Though my heart was still wanting to be great again, it's impossible to fight at world class level with a torn eye muscle caused by the beating I absorbed dutring the Giants Stadium fight, which occurred on 9/16/79. I had many futile come back attempts, but seeing double made it impossible to become the world champ I would have been!


What types of students have you worked with?

First, I implore you to read my auto biography titled, "Unclaimed Destiny, the Heart of a Champion, written in 2003 by, Rusty Rosenberger. As far as clients, I've trained house wives, doctors, lawyers, business owners, sign painters, high school football teams, amateur, & professional fighters, oil investors, friends, & neighbors. You name it, & I've trained them. In 1989, I invented, Rusty's Boxercise Fitness. On October,24,1989, while promoting my, Rusty's Boxercise Fitnerss program, I was a pictured article in thre Denver Post. Then, on November 30,1991, while promoting my, Rusty's Boxercise Fitness program in New York City, theere was a featured, pictured article in the, New York Times  


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The Floyd Mayweather vs Connar McGregor. Though the fight to me was very predictable. An outstanding MMA fighter, fighting one of the best fighters in history of boxing. It doesn't take the intelligence of a brain surgeon to figure what the out come would be. I think it would be only fair for Mayweather to fight McGregor in an MMA fight, to really see who's the best in their combat sport would to have them fight each other with each fighting their own style. Then people can say boxing is better than MMA, and vise versa!


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

Search for a teacher/trainer, that not only has experience actually boxing, but someone who understands that boxing is a sport one has to totally dedicate his life to. Have that inner drive, to awake early every morning and get his road work in. Eat healthy, plenty of well timed rest periods. Hit the gym every day, train hard every day, knowing your future opponent is doing the same should induce you to do  alittle bit extra if you want to be the best, and win! Understand that every minute training has to be intense. Training hard every day will give you self confidence knowing that when fight night arrives, you know you're in better mental, & physical, condition  than your opponent. Boxing is an art, and you have to know you've practiced your art of boxing, which is, "Hit, without being hit'" and you'll win every time.  


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

After their first training session, with the understanding that intensity is a must. To be a winner in boxing, & in life, you have to be able to endure the amount of training, while  learning, sparring, getting in better physical condition than they've ever been in, to always increase their phycal conditioning, and mental awareness, knowing that intensity has to be met daily, with the knowledge that it must be increased daily, to  be the best, the winner.
