Master Boxing Instructor
I’m an avid fan of sports and fitness and like to incorporate a variety of athletic strength & conditioning training methods into my classes to achieve knock-out results with my clients. I’ve been coaching amateur and recreational boxing since 2000 and was a competitive amateur boxer for 9 years, training under former world champion Manny Sobral. I’m the former co-founder of Griffins Boxing & Fitness in North Vancouver and later coached boxing lessons at the North Burnaby Boxing Club from 2005-2011. Highlights of my competitive boxing career include winning the Western Canadian Championships in 2007 and being awarded the prestigious title of Golden Boy of the tournament when winning Golden Gloves in 2011.
I studied Kinesiology at SFU and started a career as a certified personal trainer upon graduating in 2006. Building upon the foundation of my education I am also a CSEP Certified Personal Trainer, a NCCP level 3 trained boxing coach as well as an FMS Level 2 trained and certified practitioner.
