Eric

Eric was a three-sport athlete growing up. He concentrated on basketball and football at Cincinnati Elder High School in Ohio, where he was a two-time Division I State Champion in football. He later attended Capital University in Columbus, OH and joined the football team as an outside linebacker. He was a 4-year letter winner, a team captain his senior year, and he earned All-Conference and All-Region honors for his play. After college, Eric began training under Martin Cornejo as an amateur boxer and competed as a USA Boxing Athlete from 2011-2013. In 2015 he earned his USA Boxing Coaches license, which he has used to coached amateur boxers in local competitions and Chicago Golden Gloves Tournaments. Eric has been with TITLE since 2011 and is going on his 8th year as a trainer.  Eric also started a Social Community, Color47, to influence the community and those in it in a positive, love filled way.

My personal mantra:
ELE “everybody love everybody “ - Jackie Moon 

My training style is:
Authentic

My why:
A large part of my life was influenced by health and fitness. I looked at the opportunity to join TITLE Boxing Club as the best way to share the best of me. I stay because I still have a vision for our team and the community we serve, and I plan on seeing it out.

What gives me my fighting spirit:
My Passion to be a better version of myself each day.

Veronika

Originally from the South Side of Chicago, Veronika has been a competitive person her whole life. Growing up she played soccer, volleyball, softball, football and she would find herself striving to be the fastest, strongest, and wisest. Over the last ten years, Veronika has worked in a variety of gyms in the fitness industry. She has worked at the front desk, as a sales rep and a personal trainer. Veronika has always loved boxing as a form of training, and she has been with TITLE since the Lincoln Park studio opened. She has begun to apply fundamentals of boxing to other aspects of life – for example breathing. She trains with the goal of one day competing (if she can ever find an opponent!).  V is passionate about spreading her adoration and knowledge of the boxing workout to other people in a fun, energetic and authentic way.

My personal mantra:
You weren't put on this earth to compare. You were put on this earth to stand out, co-exist and shine in your own light.

My training style is:
Authentic, Energetic

My why:
For one, I love the workout. I believe my love for boxing and the Power Hour can be used to motivate others to love it too. I wanted to use my passion to not only educate and empower others, but also be involved in the best hour of someone's day.

What gives me my fighting spirit:
Life. It's not always easy. No one has a perfect life and no one can have a perfect life without effort. Having a fighting spirit is necessary to be successful in anything we do. I want to be physically, mentally and spiritually strong. I want to turn negative energy into positive energy, and want to be the best version of myself everyday, so that's what I fight to be.

Katie

Originally from Chicago, Katie moved to New York City directly after high school to attend the Intern Affiliate Program at the Broadway Dance Center. While living in New York, she discovered her love for fitness and nutrition, eventually finding herself in the gym than in the dance studio. She moved home and in 2010 received a diploma in personal training and nutrition from the National Personal Training Institute. Truly passionate about what she does, Katie spends her free time teaching herself different training styles, learning about body mechanics and understanding the benefits of different workouts. She got into boxing in 2013 and joined the TITLE team when the Lincoln Park located opened in 2014. A year into her job with TITLE, Katie was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Rheumatoid Arthritis, which at one point led her to take a leave of absence from teaching. That time away is what made Katie realize just how much she loves fitness, boxing and training others. She credits the boxing workout with giving her both the mental and physical strength to approach life with a debilitating disease.

My personal mantra:
The only work out you will regret is the one you didn't do.

My training style is:
Energetic

My why:
I was ready for a new challenge in the fitness industry. Even though I had little boxing experience, I was open to learning and growing as a fitness professional. Teaching in general is something I've always been very passionate about, so to have the ability to teach boxing classes sounded like an amazing opportunity.

What gives me my fighting spirit:
Being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis has definitely brought out the fighter in me. Even though I have a very debilitating disease at a young age, I refuse to let it take over my life. I wanted to be an inspiration to people and let them know that no matter what life throws at you, don't ever give up!

Aidan

Aidan began his fitness career in high school as a wrestler and a football player. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Lake Forest College where he played football and rugby.  He earned the title of “All-Conference” for football and was president of his Lake Forest College Rugby Team.  After graduating, Aidan served in the United States Marine Corps, during which time he was a lead martial arts and combat instructor. Aidan is currently a graduate student in the School of Education at DePaul University.  He is pursuing a career as a high school history teacher.  In addition to TITLE, Aidan also coaches high school wrestling and works as a fitness instructor at Chicago Neighborhood Fitness Centers.

My personal mantra:
Walk softly and carry a big stick.

My training style is:
Heart

My why:
I went to one of Eric's classes and loved the way everyone's energy built off of each other and made you want to work harder and applied for a position immediately after the class. 

What gives me my fighting spirit:
I try to be a nice person which means I have to hold in a lot of aggression throughout the day. When I box or fight I can use that pent up anger. I like controlling my anger, not letting it control me.

Tim

Tim grew up playing every sport under the sun, but after high school he let sports and his health take a back seat. Once he got his head back in the game three years ago, he worked hard and lost over 100 pounds. Now he loves making fitness a priority and helping others do the same. Tim also works as a Senior Copywriter at Sears. When the final bell rings and Tim packs up his mitts for the day, he likes to head out to grab some kombucha and grilled veggies. And by kombucha and grilled veggies, he means sit on the couch with his wife and watch an unhealthy amount of Netflix. Aside from binge watching everything, he loves to cook. Whether it’s healthy meals for the week or a batch of coconut crusted fried chicken tenders with spicy apricot jam dipping sauce (personal fav), trying out new recipes is always a fun challenge. Plus, there’s no better way to show someone you care than by cooking them something tasty.

My personal mantra:
Try to get just 1% better each day. At the end of the year, you're 365% better!

My training style is:
Authentic, Heart

My why:
I ended up finding TITLE because I needed to take my health back. My doctors told me I needed to lose at least 60 lbs and the thought of trying to do that on a treadmill seemed impossible (and boring as sh*t). Aside from helping me lose a total of 70 lbs and feel healthy, Title taught me to push myself harder than I thought I could and to embrace & love the challenges you'll face while working towards your goals. Now that I have my health under control, I keep coming back to become a better boxer. There is always more to learn, more to improve and more fun to be had.

What gives me my fighting spirit:
Carnitas

Kevin

Born and raised in Wilmington, NC, Kevin’s fitness journey started as early as church league basketball in his youth. Continuing with basketball through high school, he realized basketball wasn’t a suitable option of income for the future, so he decided to get into acting/comedy (a much more reasonable industry to break into). Skateboarding and hopping fences kept him in-shape through high school as he became immersed in the arts. In college, intramural basketball, ultimate Frisbee and dominating other theater majors in most sports kept him in shape. He moved to Chicago in hopes of pursuing acting, which is when he discovered TITLE and started working in sales. After continuing to take classes and working with the fantastic training staff, Kevin soon found that he knew the punches and could use a microphone. You may find him to this day working out at TITLE or practicing writing in the third person.

 

 

My personal mantra:
I have a million I love but I'll keep it to three.  1. “Calm seas have never made a good sailor.” 2. ”The best things in life aren't things.” (I don’t know who said this, but I heard it from my father and want to keep it that way.) 3. ”Give a man a fire, and he's warm for the night. Set him on fire, and he's warm for the rest of his life" - Terry Pratchett

My training style is:
Fun, Connected

My why:
I've been a big fan of boxing for a few years now and a friend of mine told me a boxing gym was hiring so I applied. I guess that's the easiest way to say how I ended up at Title. What keeps me coming back is my co-workers and members I've become friendly with. Although I am quick to make jokes I really do like everyone I get the chance to interact with at Title. I couldn't have been more lucky to end up working here because It's a great gym that offers a great workout.

What gives me my fighting spirit:
My family. Their sincerity in their friendliness and humor as well as their compassion and work ethic has influenced how I approach my classes.

Bruce

Bruce began training in the arts of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, boxing and Muay Thai at Peoria Athletic Club. When he was five years old, he started attending class at a local Tae Kwon Do school in Peoria, IL, following his older brothers. Several years later and Bruce has a Chicago Golden Gloves Championship under his belt, along with multiple amateur bouts and years of teaching beginners to pros.

My personal mantra:
Punches n’ bunches.

My training style is:
Connected, Transforming

My why:
Boxing brought me to TBC, and I keep coming back because I enjoy sharing what I have learned through boxing training. 

What gives me my fighting spirit:
Food, family and football.

Annelise

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Annelise played soccer competitively all around the US. During her time with Internationals Soccer Club, her team achieved state and regional titles, as well as a national ranking. After an injury ended her soccer career, Annelise found TITLE Boxing Club in Columbus. She was a member there for three before becoming a trainer. Annelise graduated from The Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business in 2017 with a specialization in finance where she received recognition as part of the top 1% of the FCOB.  Annelise now works for Ernst & Young as a Strategy Consultant, traveling Monday through Thursday to her client site.  Aside from work, she loves to travel, try new things, do anything outside, and spend time with her family and friends! You can find Annelise on the schedule on the weekends and sometimes during the week (when she’s in town).

My personal mantra:
Luke warm is no good! Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.

My training style is:
Fun & Connected

My why:
Growing up, I played soccer competitively around the US. It all came to a halt when I fractured my back playing when I was 17. After recovering, I tried a lot of different work outs, but nothing brought me the excitement soccer had given me. It wasn’t until I tried Title Boxing when I was 19 that I found something I truly loved. I was a member for about 3 years, prior to becoming a trainer. I love the community and the workout! 

What gives me my fighting spirit:
My mom. She’s fighting stage 4 cancer...and winning!

Live Your Best Life

My training style is:
Transforming

My desire to continually grow as an individual.

Loyalty Beyond the Bag

Join the TITLE Boxing Club Movement

While our clubs across the country have been busy building your strength and confidence, we’ve also been spotted on the news, in magazines and online – and people can’t seem to get enough of our growing brand! Check it out for yourself!

FAQ's

I’ve heard the classes are intense; do I need to be in great shape to do the workouts?

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t worked out in a while or have never boxed before, you can finish the workout feeling great! You’ll see that everyone goes at their own pace, but believe us that once you’re here, you’ll be inspired to give it your very best!

I don’t want to get hit; is this a contact workout?

No—not ever! Each person in class has their own heavy bag to workout on, plus their own space to move around the bag. Trust us, you won’t even realize anyone else is in the class because you’ll be so focused on the workout! And, rest easy, we never allow sparring or fighting at TITLE Boxing Club.

What makes TITLE different than other fitness studios?

Boxing is a great workout, perhaps one of the most challenging of all sports, and we want to bring you the intensity of the training, minus the impact. We’ll teach you how to roll with the punches by pushing you further than you thought possible.

I’m new to boxing; will someone show me the basics?

You bet! All of our classes are taught by instructors who will show you the ropes from the beginning. We’ll help you wrap your hands and walk you through the basic fundamentals. Everyone in class is at a different level, so take a deep breath and go at your own pace!

Can I bring my children with me?

We do not offer childcare services at TITLE Boxing Club. However, children over the age of eight are welcome to work out with you here and join as a member! Ask us about our Family Membership options.

What do I need to bring to class? How early do I need to arrive?

Hand wraps are essential for your protection and mandatory for class. You can bring your own or buy them here. We’ll have gloves for you to borrow your first time, and you might want to bring a bottle of water and towel! Plan on arriving 20 minutes early so we can get you settled and wrap your hands.

I’ve never hit anything before. Will I hurt myself?

For a beginner, the most important thing is to learn the proper form. The good news is that we’ll teach you! As you progress, you’ll be able to throw several variations of punches from different positions and develop your own punching technique to fit your style. People are usually surprised at how much they love hitting the heavy bag!

Can I try a class before joining?

Of course you can take classes before purchasing a membership. We have drop-in rates for single classes, three or six classes. These are great for people who travel often or want to try us out. You can choose our best value option and commit to a membership any time.

Do you have showers?

We do have a private shower for you to clean up after your workout and please bring any essentials you may need!
