BOX Evanston will offer Small Group Training, One-on-One training, Technique Training and general conditioning. Lead by fitness and boxing expert, Fernando. As a kid growing up in Puebla, Mexico, Fernando became a Golden Gloves champion and competed as a semi-professional boxer for ten years. He also spent four and a half years sky-diving as a paratrooper in the Mexican army where he continued to box.
After moving to the United States at the age of twenty-four, he put competing on hold in order to make a living. Fernando found his way back to competing in part by training others to perform at their best. In Fernando’s case, starting back into competition meant racing in a full marathon. That first race turned into many and has taken many forms – from triathlons, open water swims, marathons and ultra marathons to half and full Ironman competitions.
Fernando is a certified USA boxing coach and a certified boot camp instructor. In addition to all he has learned through competing regularly in various elite athletic events, he brings over twenty years of professional training experience with him each day that he steps through the door of BOX Evanston/EAC. Whether you are new to boxing and fitness training or have spent years testing your own limits, Fernando’s expertise and enthusiasm will help take you to the next level.
