My name is David Imoesiri. I will start this bio with the edification of my childhood trainer coach Joe Zander’s. President of USA Boxing Southern California association for the last 25 years. Also currently a board member of the Amamture International Boxing Association, has been a United States Ambassador for Olympic Boxing for over a decade. Editor of the AIBA Coaches handbook. Has orated, assessed and certified thousands of coaches worldwide. This man in their amateur careers has coached countless HOF Boxers like Oscar De le Hoya, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Antonio Tarver, Roy Jones Jr., and was in the corner of the last Male Olympic Boxing Gold Medalist Andre S.O.G Ward. And was named the 2012 Olympic Boxing Teams Head Coach. This great man is who raised and educated me on what boxing is.
Now for myself. With over 20 year’s experience in the ring. Being one of Coach Joes many accomplished fighters having acheived a total of 7 different District and Regional Golden Gloves Titles, as well as National and International Titles in my own right. I’m excited to share with you the lifelong, mental, emotional and physical health benefits that boxing brings. I do not compete anymore, but my passion for this still burns brightly into a vision bringing boxing fitness to the masses. That vision starts with you though.
What makes my workout even more unique is that my services are MOBILE. I will drive to you and train you in the comfort of your own home. Literally can be done in your own living room, if you’re serious. From my experience in working with people at their home, condo and office facilities is that they are able to relax, focus and be fully present on the task at hand.
My mobile services allow for the convenience of getting a great workout before work (which is highly recommended to boost performance and output) while also eliminating the common excuses of:
Not enough time in the day…
Too tired to hit the
It’s rainy, cold and dark outside…
I’ll start on Monday... any of this sound familiar?

to not make yourself a priority.
Now, if you’ve read this and your interest is peaked. Trust your gut and call now. I offer very affordable pricing

What I love about the work that I do is being able to share with others the sport that has changed so many lives. Doesn’t matter if you want to be a competitive fighter or not. Boxing is a sport that anyone can do and have a great time learning. It I like that women find so much empowerment by learning to use their hands to 1 protect themselves, and to let off some steam unleash their inner “Warrior Princess”. For elderly people, it is a great way to improve cognitive functional as well as the entire central nervous system. For kids it teaches focus, discipline and a huge sense of self confidence and real feeling of achievement. Learning to do something you once thought to be so intimidating can be very empowering once you start having fun and getting better at it.
He's working with my son, teaching him a lot.
David is so great with our 13 year old daughter. She had no boxing experience and is shy. I see her confidence improving and it gives me comfort knowing she could defend herself if needed. He’s very patient and knowledgeable!
When I connected with David, he came during a really difficult time in my life where I was going through a lot of personal struggles that I was having a hard time overcoming. Although I had consistently worked out, it wasn't helping me emotionally. Until I met David and started training with David. For the first time ever, boxing with David allowed me to clear my mind and just forget about all the stress I was carrying. Aside from learning mitt work and learning how to jab, David helped me gain confidence and strength to keep on going. Plus learning the different boxing routine was a total confidence boost. Overall, David truly is a great motivator and blessing.
David was one of the best trainers I've had the opportunity to train with! He seriously cares about his clients and is always willing to be flexible and creative. My schedule was chaotic and unpredictable at the time I was training with David and he never let that get in the way - from meeting me at my home to sending me personalized work out routines that I could do on my own, I always felt motivated and supported by David. David is also amazing at training people to box and the best at holding mitts. As someone who picked up boxing for fitness only, I initially didn't care about technique and David taught me how to fight strong and actually look like I know what I'm doing. David and I stopped training due to him moving out of LA, but I hope he comes back soon!
My typical process when dealing with new students is a free assessment! I have all new students sign a waiver & release form, also a trainer/client agreement. For the intro workout, all students new to iBOX4LiFE go through a full body and core stabilazation assessment. I use this assessment to safely and properly identify my students level of fitness and physical readiness.
For your intro to boxing I start with grasssroots boxing fundamentals. Teaching all students proper footwork, hand placement, punching and defensive technique. My goal is always to establish reliable boxing habits to build on, that will last a lifetime. Do it right, have fun and get results.

I fought competitively from the age of 12 all the way 26-27ish. One day when I was 22 years old I was attending an event with my childhood trainer and found myself reading the International Amateur Boxing Coaches Handbook. This is the very book which the Olympic Boxing coaching board benchmarks all the worlds Olympic boxing coaching protocols and certified coaches. Im sitting right next to my coach while reading this book and the most bizarre thing was happening.
I felt like I was watching my coach talk to us in the gym as kids when I began boxing. It was ver batam the words that I was reading. So I asked, “Coach Joe, did you write this?” He is a very humble man, he graciously smiled and said, “I had a little something to do with it”. 😳🤯 It was at that moment that I understood he had completely set me up for my calling. Which I didn’t take a hold of until years later because I was chasing my own dream of being a professional boxer.
Fast forward 5 or so years, I basically woke up one day, and realized that I was called down a different path. So I cold turkey stopped boxing for my own personal gain, and gained a heart for serving others acheving health and fitness. Soon after I made my trainer and manager aware of my decision to hang them up. My Wife’s (who was then a boxer too) friend asked me, “David, do you want to take over my job teaching boxing classes?” I said, “sure that sounds good where is it”. She tells me Paramount Pictures movie studio in Hollywood. (SWEET) I’m from Los Angeles originally btw.
Anyway I went in for the interview and they asked me to run a demo class so I did and there was only one person there. I ran a program similar to one of the ones from my early days in the gym and the studentv was super impressed at my knowledge, teaching ability and patience. Little did I know I was training the On-Site wellness management companies lead fitness trainer. I got the job, but there, I became a lot more interested in traditional fitness certifications even though I got paid more, than the Personal Trainers for having boxing as a speciality workout. I wanted to be educated on the human body and know scientifically how to make it stronger.
My textbook used the term fitness professional and then I knew this is where I’m going with this. I doubled there and at BoxNBurn Los Angeles for a while, later resigned from Paramount to commit to working at BNB to continue chasing the growth of my new found love Boxing for Fitness. Thus, the birth of iBOX4LiFE. Boxing is a sport, Sports are fitness, Fitness is health and Health is life. Therefor I don’t box for a living, iBOX4LiFE.
I have worked all different ages of both genders but my most common student are young women in the 20-40s age range.
I attended the Los Angeles FitExpo last year, that was pretty inspiring.
My advice is to look for someone not only with real fighting experience but with quality teaching experience. Meaning they have been educated on how to teach boxing AND fitness and understand the differences in people physical, mental and emotionally capacity. Training is supposed to be about the journey not just the destination.
The way I teach is by partnering with my students to identify their goals and work together to achieve them. The biggest question would possibly be to determine their level of commitment they will need to achieve their goal, if it is realistic, and how bad they really want it, because although you can tons of fun with it. You can’t play boxing.
