With decades of executive experience in corporate America, Richard King has the high energy and ambitious attitude necessary to not only maintain but heighten the success of TITLE Boxing Club Oviedo. He embarks on this journey as a mentor to his son Brandon; the duo act as owner and co-owner of the club, respectively.
Richard was born in rural South Carolina where he spent his first thirty years, and met his wife April. After graduating from Greenville Technical College, he went on to work for many major companies in his home state and Atlanta, Georgia such as the CDC, the APC, and Electronic Data Systems. Alongside his career achievements, he has been a dedicated parent to his children Brandon & Brooklyn. Brandon’s co-ownership ties into his Senior Exit Project where he must explore a career field, and has chosen business ownership alongside his father.
After relocating to Winter Springs, FL in 2017, Richard started as only a member of TITLE Boxing Club Oviedo. The team made his experience a truly memorable one, and in no time he became an enthusiastic part of the family. He was offered the club towards the end of 2018 and stayed adamant through the entire transition process. Richard hopes to share the joys TITLE has brought him with others with plans to open other franchises throughout the state of Florida.

Great instructors, they are motivated/ motivating and they work with the customer. No over kill. They let you work at your pace and push you when they know you can give more.
The combinations are always different and challenge rounds are incorporated to push us harder. Also love the one-on-one interactions when coaches walk around the room to help us improve technique. Super fun energy!!!
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!
