Our Club Leadership
Justine Poffel became a member of TITLE Boxing Club of McKinney in 2013, and then owner and TITLE Franchisee in March 2016. After completing a 25+ corporate career, she knew it was time to make a change in her career and hopefully in the lives of those in her community.
“We are a fitness studio like no other in McKinney. We believe in training as fighters do. Our workouts model those of athletes, the likes of Mohammed Ali, Joe Louis and Amanda Nunes. We believe our heavy bags, jump ropes, focus mitts and core workouts provide the perfect athletic regimen that will keep you in fighting shape, both physically and mentally.”
Justine and her team have been fighting the good fight here in McKinney since 2012. The clubs 500 plus members range in age from 10 to 82 and are of every fitness and skill level from those just starting their fitness journey, to professional NFL athletes that frequent the club in the off season.
“Our members come to us with their fitness goals… ‘I want to lose weight’…. ‘I want to gain muscle’… ‘I want to increase my endurance’… ‘I want to learn a new sport and become an athlete again’… All of which are great goals to have. Some of which can be achieved at most gyms. Our members achieve so much more. We all have battles we are fighting every day. Grief. Loss. Depression. Weight. Career. Addiction. Self-esteem. Body image. Peer pressure and bullying. Health issues and illness. Our classes teach members how to battle through adversity and provide the motivation to achieve their goals. Jab. Cross. Hook. Upper cut. You vs. the bag. You vs. You. Under the rack!”
You can find Justine in the club every day working on building a better club for the members, or working out right with them.
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!
