A boxing gym is very different from a regular gym. Everyone here is always busy working-out and not standing around machines talking. At EJK Boxing & Fitness Club, if you aren't sweating, you are not working-out. If you aren't smoked after 20 minutes you're not finished working out. We will ensure that you get a full and serious and fun workout every time you visit the gym. Boxing also teaches "Life Lessons" that can be applied in all aspects of what a person does on a daily basis. Our Strength & conditioning training program at EJK Boxing & Fitness Club is very good and tailored to your physical fitness level & needs, focusing on muscular & cardiovascular endurance training making it the perfect way to get in shape and lose weight.
The difference between our gym and other big box gyms is that our gym has actual boxing trainers (not guys that just know how punch & kick) that will train you to get in the best shape of your life.
Born & raised in North & West Philadelphia, Pa. I started boxing at the age of 8 and have not stopped training since I've started. I boxed at the Philadelphia Police Athletic League from age 9 - 16 winning several championships along the way in several weight classes, the final as a welter weight (147 lbs). After graduating from Overbrook High School in 1985, I joined the Army at age 18 and continued to box while stationed at my first duty station in Panama as an Imagery Intelligence Analyst. I continued competitive amateur boxing for the next two years until the US Army Special Forces came calling (Green Berets) & recruited me to join. I worked within the Joint Special Operations Forces (JSOF) community for the next 14 years as an intelligence analyst, exercise designer & mission planner, eventually becoming the only enlisted head of intelligence (J2) in the Armed Forces. Along the way I got married to a great woman & have three awesome children. I decided to rejoin the Regular Army at FT Hood after being promoted to Master Sergeant with the goal of becoming a First Sergeant (there were no First Sergeants in the JSOF units I served in). After my 14th & final combat deployment in 2004- 2005, I retired after 20 years of service as a First Sergeant in September 2005. I received 35 medals & commendations along the way among them being highlighted by the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, Joint Meritorious Service & Meritorious Service (x2) Medals. After continuing my schooling & earning my Bachelors degree in Business Management, I then became a civilian contractor working as a GCSS-ARMY Mentor & then the Officer-In-Charge of one the Army's newest units, TASK FORCE ODIN - CONSTANT HAWK. After 5 years as a contractor, in November 2012, I opened EJK Boxing & Fitness Club & the rest, as they say, is history & hopefully, with your help, a great future
