“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

JOSE MORALES, OWNER
“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.

The people that you workout with are nice and there’s a family atmosphere here. Even if you never thought boxing was for you, try it! I never thought I’d enjoy this as much as I do. It’s hard, but it’s so worth it.”
