Will was introduced to martial arts when he was enrolled in karate at age 6. His parents hoped it might teach him self-discipline, focus, and respect. They hoped. A lifelong obsession with combat sports was born and he went on to explore other disciplines, including Muay Thai, Jiu-Jitsu, and Capoeira. His favorite sport outside of the combat realm is basketball, and we have been informed by numerous reputable sources that he shoots like Stephen Curry.
Will has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology from JMU, he is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and when he isn’t at Title, he works full time as an EMT. Will has experience training people of all ages and body types; from autistic children to cane-toting senior citizens to professional athletes. His ultimate goal is for everyone he trains to feel free within their own body so that their best self may manifest.

Maggie is like no other trainer you’ve met before. She’s exhilarating, exciting, and her love for boxing radiates in her 60 minutes in front of the crowd. Boxing helped her feel comfortable in her skin again after her first year of college. While college taught valuable lessons, she found that boxing did too. After a year working out at TITLE, Maggie dove deeper into the world of fitness and became a sales associate for her first TITLE team. She soon started upping her training, exploring the business side of the club, and fully learning the ins and outs of what it takes to live a healthier life. Now, she’s the Assistant Manager of TITLE Boxing Club in Fairfax where she also leads some of the highest intensity classes every Monday morning. You won’t regret saying hello to her at the front desk either – she’s hilarious and her good energy is contagious.
My personal mantra: “Stop wasting time comparing yourself to others and just do cool things.”
My training style is: Connected
My why: Becoming a trainer pushed me out of my comfort zone beyond anything I’ve ever done before. I know what it did for me, and I want to help do the same for other people.
What gives me my fighting spirit: Motivating people to reach their goals.
Johanna picked up the sport of boxing in December 2011 when her husband bought her a heavy bag for Christmas. It all started as a way to relieve stress but after hitting the bag for the first time she was hooked. The longer Johanna found herself spending time hitting the bag the more she fell in love with boxing. Her desire to get in the ring grew. With the help of Troy, another one of our TITLE trainers, Johanna eventually got trained and fought in her first amateur fight. As a working mother with four kids, she only had the chance to make it into the ring once, but given the opportunity to do it again, she would. Her dedication truly shows when she’s up every morning leading the morning crowd through her killer 6am classes and finds herself back in the gym later in the evening to take classes for her own workout!
My personal mantra: There is never an end…You can always keep pushing for better!
My training style is: Energetic
My why: I enjoy being in the gym…More of an opportunity to spend time there.
What gives me my fighting spirit: My family. I work hard for them everyday.

Since our club opened in 2012, TITLE Boxing Club Fairfax has been giving members of all kinds a chance to build their strength. Our trainers and leadership team are dedicated to creating awesome workouts that help you push yourself to the next level, no matter how tired or stressed you are. At our boxing gym, all you have to worry about is showing up and hitting the heavy bag. Owner Sean Heaps says, “Success is not an act. Success is a habit. Get up, get moving, and get after it. The key to a healthier body and confident, clear mind is consistently taking actions towards your fitness goals.”
We specialize in group fitness classes (boxing and kickboxing) and pride ourselves on providing top-notch strength and conditioning personal training services. Are you wanting to take your fitness to the next level? Our decorated trainers provide one-on-one and group training sessions for anyone looking to up their game. “It will never be easy to change your habits, but it will always be worth it. Step one is committing yourself to the lifestyle. The rest will fall into place along the journey,” Trainer Leena Abed claims, and she’s right. That’s why we’ve designed each class to bring you further along in your fitness journey. Our group fitness classes begin with the warmups – a HIIT workout that combines trainer-led boxing with cardio drills and stretches. This gets your heart pumping and your mind ready for the next phase of your boxing for fitness class – the rounds. During the rounds, your trainer will lead you through a series of jab, hook, and cross combinations where you’ll lay it all on the heavy bag for three minutes; then, you’ll rest for a minute before jumping into the next round. Once you’ve finished the rounds, our trainers will lead you through an ab workout where you’ll use weighted medicine balls to define your core.

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!
