Meet Your Trainers



Caitlin was born and raised on Long Island, New York. Caitlin spent most of her childhood outside playing soccer, horseback riding, and running with her Dad. Caitlin lettered in track 8 times and was an all-academic all-country triple jumper. Caitlin attended Christopher Newport University on an honor’s scholarship and ran track and field while obtaining her BA in psychology. After college, Caitlin moved back to Long Island to earn her law degree. When she retired from track and field, Caitlin needed an outlet for her competitive nature that provided something different than running. That’s how she found TITLE Boxing Club.

The day she walked into the club, she knew boxing was for her. The combination of stress release and an amazing workout immediately drew her in and she has never looked back. When Caitlin relocated to Richmond, one of the first things she did was get a membership at TITLE. Now as a trainer, Caitlin is excited to show people why she loves TITLE so much. Caitlin believes that boxing is all about attitude and getting what you came for. When Caitlin isn’t boxing, she spends her time with her dogs, reading, and spending time with friends and family.

My personal mantra:
I've got this.

My training style is:
Energetic and Fun

My why:
Everyone has a fighter in them, no matter who they are. TITLE allows you to fight on your own level for your own self.

What gives me my fighting spirit:
My drive to make myself a little bit better and stronger every day and become a person I am really proud of.



Jessie was raised in Blacksburg, VA by parents who encouraged independence and an active lifestyle. She grew up camping, climbing, swimming, running, playing soccer and practicing Martial Arts. After a skiing accident and ACL surgery in 2008, Jessie was determined to learn everything she could about injury prevention for athletes. In college, Jessie studied Strength and Conditioning and became involved with triathlon and obstacle course racing. She graduated from Radford University with a degree in Human Health and Performance, and spent her time racing and coaching multisport athletes.

Jessie stepped back from endurance sport in 2016 to rehab a torn meniscus. She traded in her running shoes for boxing gloves and fell in love with the intensity of the workout and mental clarity that boxing provided. She coached boxing classes at Level Red Boxing in Erie, PA from 2016 – 2018. When she moved to Richmond in January 2019, she was thrilled to join TITLE Boxing Club and continue coaching and learning.

Jessie is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, a Personal Trainer, and a Certified USA Triathlon Coach. Movement is her passion. She’s spent the last 10 years coaching athletes in soccer, swimming, running, cycling, adventure racing, boxing, and strength training.

Jessie believes boxing is one of the best workouts a person can do for themselves! The unique combination of strength, speed, cardio, mental stimulation, and agility that is required in boxing makes it a fully-engaging whole-body workout that everyone can do.

When Jessie isn’t coaching, she is probably on an adventure with her loved ones, listening to a podcast, or somewhere in the woods.

My personal mantra:
When motivation fails, discipline prevails.

My training style is:
Authentic & Connected

My why:
Health is wealth! My goal is to help people build strong, capable bodies and minds that they love and respect. As we get older, many of us gravitate to jobs and environments that are not natural and we gradually suppress our inclinations to run, or jump, or climb, or play. This massive reduction in movement and play leads to muscle imbalances, chronic pain, injury, early aging, depression, anxiety, the list goes on and on. Movement is an avenue through which we can connect to the spontaneous nature of our humanity, push the boundaries of what we think is possible, express ourselves, and live joyfully!

What gives me my fighting spirit:
Seeing people radically transform their lives in a matter of months by prioritizing their health is truly incredible. I am inspired every day by the amazing people I have [had] the honor working with as a coach.



Emily was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia and grew up playing both basketball and softball. She left for 6 years in order to attend college and graduate school. Emily attended Christopher Newport University and received a degree in Psychology and Business, and went on to obtain her Master’s degree in Psychology from Eastern Kentucky University. While in Kentucky, Emily began to seek out the best workout that fit her needs and wants, and she’d always been interested in boxing. She took her first class at TITLE Boxing Club in Lexington, Kentucky and was immediately hooked. When she moved back to Virginia for work, there were not TITLE Boxing Clubs near her but she continued training and improving, and eventually began coaching others in boxing. Emily found her home at TITLE Boxing Club in October of 2018 after TITLE Boxing Club Richmond opened. With 5+ years of boxing experience under her belt, Emily is excited to continue to spread her passion for the sport to others. Emily strongly believes that boxing is an essential way to build physical strength, improve mental health, gain confidence, and have fun while exercising. When Emily isn’t boxing, she is doing research at VCU on spinal cord injuries, travelling, or spending time with family and friends.

My personal mantra:
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated.

My training style is:

My why:
There is no better way to feel strong and empowered than to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Boxing is a why to feel powerful, strong, independent, and both physically and mentally healthy.

What gives me my fighting spirit:
The drive to never be defeated, to never give up, and to continue to be the best version of myself that I possibly can be.

After receiving a degree in Elementary Education she relocated to Brooklyn, New York where she spent the next 10 years in Charter Education. In Brooklyn, Amy opened two Charter Schools as a teacher, instructional coach, and Vice Principal.

Amy trained under the expertise of Heather for her last year while living in Brooklyn as well as taking weekly classes from Shadowbox, Rumble, and Box and Flow.

Success Stories

Tricia and James

Friday December 20, 2019

Get to know Tricia, James, and Meghan Tricia Sumner, and her children, James Coleson (@james.surfs) and Meghan Coleson (@meghan_coleson), are a POWER-house family! They joined TITLE Boxing Club in October 2019 and in just two months, they have fully immersed themselves in the TITLE Boxing Club Richmond culture.

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!
