Mike has trained fighters in Texas and New York, on the amateur level as well as pros. He served in the Military for 23 years and did a tour of duty in Vietnam. He was on the Military Boxing Team for 8 years and won many titles. Mike's father was a pro in the late 40's and early 50's and his son (dubbed the Italian Stallion) was ranked no. 2 in the country in 2006.

Boxing is a fine sport, and it's also a great way to get in shape. Boxing is a full body workout from head to toe. If you want to get in shape, male or female, regardless of age, drop by the class for a super workout.

Health and Fitness Tips

What you have to do is simply cut back on those goodies you enjoy. I'm Italian so we will use pizza as an example. If you generally eat 3 slices cut it back to 1.5, you’re still getting the goody but without as many calories. That's the simple trick, cut back.

Also, if you want to lose weight, exercise. Take a walk every day, do some sit ups, do some push-ups. Do the aforementioned for a few weeks and you'll see results. Then and only then you can kick things up a notch. Feel free to contact me for advice and help.
