MEET THE TEAM
“The trainers, they believe in you more than you would ever imagine. That’s the type of gym everyone needs to be a part of.”
-Yesenia Mendoza, JMBA Member
Our teams’ main focus is YOUR goal. We thrive on making each day a different workout, NO DAY IS EVER THE SAME! Our trainers have a collective 50* YEARS of experience in boxing, both competing and training, and some are still active today. We are well-versed in weight training and cardio exercises. Therefore, our boxing academy offers a variety of workouts that push you both physically and mentally.
“I guarantee that after you train with me you will not only love the workout – you’ll love the sport of boxing.”
I am a veteran of 58 amateur boxing bouts and first began training boxers in 2006, working with adults and teenagers. I strive to help members stay healthy, lose weight, compete, build confidence, or simply learn the science of boxing. I work with a variety of clients – from 4-year-olds to 70-year-olds, average Joes, blue-collar, soccer moms, troubled teens, honor roll kids, amateur boxers, professional boxers, school teachers and everything in between. No matter who you are, I can cater training to each individual. I adapt to each client’s style and will modify workouts to accommodate injuries, weaknesses, strengths, dislikes, and likes so that everyone can learn how to box.
“Never in a million years did I picture myself in a boxing ring! I wish I would have come across a boxing gym like this when I was overweight. It definitely would have helped me with my physical problems and I would have avoided all the mental drains that the bullying caused. Boxing definitely has built my confidence and has shown me things I did not even know about myself. It’s not just a workout – there are life lessons learned in the boxing gym.”
Kelly was born and raised in Sacramento. As a kid, she struggled with obesity and was bullied about her weight. Weight loss has always been a struggle for her, but boxing has helped her not only physically, but also mentally. As a four-foot-ten, singing in the shower, Disney-loving 24-year old woman, she may not seem like someone you’d see in the ring or managing a boxing gym. However, she puts her Bachelor’s degree in Economics and 8 years of customer service to use and proudly proclaims to love her job.
Claudia was introduced to our gym by her brother, who is an amateur boxer that trains with Jose. Once her brother began pursuing his passion for boxing, it became a family affair. Claudia’s entire family are now members and boxers. We love her personality and work ethic, so we asked her to join our mangement team and assist Kelly. Claudia enjoys boxing for fitness and currently attends American River Community College.

“Be a fighter in your life! Grow through what you go through. Behind every strong person is a story that gave them no choice but to stop waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel and lit that darkness up and chose to rise.”
ASSISTANT COACH & AMATEUR BOXER
In 2019, Levy came into our gym to check us out. He was quiet and humble, and we were surprised to learn he came from an extensive boxing background. Over time, Levy has become more outspoken and is excited to share his knowlege with members. Now with fourteen amatuer boxing bouts under his belt, he is coaching alongside Jose and David. He is currently on active duty in the United States Air Force.
