Amanda grew up fostering her life long love of fitness through playing her true passion, soccer. She was lucky enough to go on and play Division 1 soccer at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. College soccer was mentally challenging because of some injuries that she endured but she loved being an athlete and being surrounded by others who enjoy fitness as much as she does. Amanda graduated from BGSU with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and Kinesiology, she also holds a AAFA/NASM Group Fitness Instructor certification. Amanda is currently the manager of another group fitness studio, Health House. For fun, Amanda enjoys coaching youth soccer, being outdoors and hanging out with her dog Jordy.

It wasn’t until after high school that Jose began to really get serious about working out. One of his best friends played football and unfortunately suffered an injury, so they began working out together in their spare time. Ever since then he’s never looked back. Jose played soccer for a couple of summers, but has mainly stuck to weight training. He has always been a huge fan of boxing, and one day he drove by the club and decided to check it out. Jose signed up right then and there. It has been one of the best decisions he’s made. Now, as a trainer, he wants to bring that same joy to other members of TITLE Boxing Club.
My personal mantra: Be the hardest worker in the room.
My training style is: Transforming
My why: I really enjoy improving my health through fitness and exercise. As a member at TITLE I had some of the best workouts ever! I wanted to help share that passion with other members.
What gives me my fighting spirit: My family and the people close to me. To make a positive impact on this world, and to have fun doing it. You only get one life!

Shoutout to March Member of the Month: Chad Deshler Why TITLE? I was a member about 7 years ago but broke my thumb during an unfortunate snow skiing accident. I had to take a break from TITLE until a couple years back. I have tried so many gyms and programs but never found one that kept me engaged and focused like TITLE does. I played professional soccer and loved how I was able to stay fit and active throughout my career. Once I finished playing the closest thing I could find to that level of activity was TITLE. My Goals: I have been a member now this second time for 2 years. When I joined, I weighed 195 lbs and felt very sluggish and drained. Since then, I have stayed consistent between 175-180 lbs and have developed better endurance and strength. I feel energized and motivated to do more. My next goal is actually fight in a competitive boxing match. I don't...
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!
