Matt got into boxing as something different for a workout. After about a year of training he fought as an amateur in the Golden Gloves tournament. After his brief in-ring career ended, he came to TITLE Boxing Club for the same boxing working – just without getting hit. Matt was a member at the Highland Heights club just a few months after it opened and began training when the Solon club opened.
“I loved being a member – and you’ll still see me taking classes,” he said. “It’s just such a great workout. The rounds just fly by. And now as a trainer, I get to help and motivate our members to get the same satisfaction out of it as I do.”
When Matt is not at TITLE, he is also a high school football official and a swim team coach. But, he’s usually with his family – either just at home relaxing or at one his three daughters’ soccer games or swim meets.
My personal mantra: Don’t count the days. Make the days count.
My training style is: Authentic
My why: Boxing is not only a great workout, but the sport is so physically and mentally challenging that it completely wipes you out - unlike any other individual sport.
What gives me my fighting spirit: My wife and daughters
Julie was a high school and college athlete. She played basketball and ran track, and received my Bachelor’s in Pre-Physical Therapy from Baldwin Wallace University. In late 2007, getting ready for her wedding, she discovered group fitness classes and fell in love with them. With a little push from an instructor, she became a certified group exercise instructor five short months after and began teaching right away. A year later she became a certified personal trainer. Julie had found her passion in life – helping others have fun and get fit at the same time. Bringing a smile to someone’s face when they achieve a goal they have worked towards for so long is the best payment she could ever receive! Julie is a NETA certified personal trainer and Group Exercise instructor with a certification in Insanity and Turbo Kick. She teaches all kinds of classes from Zumba, Insanity, & Turbo Kick to Bootcamp, TRX, and more.
My personal mantra: Never say you “CAN’T” do something. You can do WAY more than you give yourself credit for.
My training style is: Energetic and Fun
My why: I have always wanted to box on a heavy bag. When a friend (Heather) mentioned she was teaching at TITLE I instantly asked how I could teach there too. I took a class and fell in love!
What gives me my fighting spirit: My family! My daughter and husband. Especially my daughter. I go hard every day to set an example of health and wellness for my daughter so she can see that she can do anything she puts her mind to!
Joe has been involved with fitness for more than seven years. Being active in everything from P90X to INSANITY workouts to kickboxing to boxing. He enjoys a variety but there’s a special love developed for boxing in particular! Joe was a member at TITLE for more than two years and decided to become a trainer because he wanted to help people reach their fitness goals like he was able to accomplish. He lost more than 100 pounds and wants to help pass that motivation along to the members of TITLE now that he is a trainer.
My personal mantra: Nothing works unless YOU do!
My training style is: Authentic
My why: To help others reach their fitness goals just like I did and I love the workout! The RESULTS are motivation to motivate others to make healthy changes!
What gives me my fighting spirit: I lost 100 lbs. I was in the same position as many of the members are when they come in for the first time with the goal to lose weight & make positive changes to their lifestyle and I can personally relate to that battle. I know how hard it was to get to where I am today and I will never give up, going back to where I was a few years ago. That is my constant reminder to keep my fighting spirit and TITLE gives me the opportunity to HIT HARD AND KEEP FIGHTING!
Heather got into fitness back in 2009 with a family fitness challenge. She had just had her third baby six months prior, was at her heaviest, and ready to finally lose the weight for good. In 2010, she finally got up the nerve to join a Bootcamp class. Over the next three years, she continued taking that Bootcamp class, plus other classes, and added running into her fitness routine. In 2013 she was approached by an instructor and asked if she ever thought about teaching fitness classes because the instructor saw that she had a passion for helping others in their journey. After that conversation, she took the plunge and started my career in fitness.
Heather is now an AFAA Certified Group Exercise Instructor and an AFAA Certified Personal Trainer. She has taught Bootcamp, Tabata/HIIT, CardioKickboxing, TRX, Kettlebell, Barre, Circuit, Strength classes, and more.
She had many friends who are members at various TITLE Boxing Clubs.
“Everyone was raving about the Power Hour workouts,” she said. “While I love teaching CardioKickboxing, I found myself missing being able to hit a bag. I found out that TITLE was coming to Strongsville and I knew I had to go for it. Taking my first class at Solon sealed the deal that I needed TITLE in my life.”
When Heather is not at TITLE, she’s spending time with her husband and their kids – usually at one of their baseball or football games or gymnastic competitions.
My personal mantra: Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, remember how far you have come.
My training style is: Authentic
My why: After trying one class I was hooked, I knew I wanted to start training at TITLE right after that 1st class!
What gives me my fighting spirit: My family… My two sons, daughter and husband give me my fighting spirit outside of TITLE every day!

Our Club Leadership
There came a point in his life when Casey was figuratively wandering around aimlessly. That path took him to the front door of TITLE Boxing Club. He took his first class as a paying customer, almost threw up, and has been in love with product ever since.
The club became his sanctuary, his weight loss center and his psychiatrist all in one. He learned a lot about his himself, pushed himself emotionally and physically through the tough times and as an added benefit is now in the best shape of his life.
It’s that journey, that struggle, that benefit that Casey is now sharing with as many people as he can reach. He started as a part owner of TITLE Boxing Club Pickerington in Columubs before opening his first club on his own – TITLE Boxing Club Highland Heights in 2012. He has since opened TITLE Boxing Club Solon (2013), TITLE Boxing Club Mentor (2015), TITLE Boxing Club Strongsville (2016) and TITLE Boxing Club Ohio City (2017).
Within the past year, he has also has taken ownership of two clubs in the Columbus area – TITLE Boxing Club Polaris and TITLE Boxing Club Powell.
As you are around town, give Casey a honk and a wave as you see him driving around in his “TITLE mobile” or stop into one of his many clubs and say hello.
Chuck’s TITLE Boxing Club Success
Wednesday February 7, 2018
Chuck Wordsall joined TITLE Boxing Club in October of 2017. Before joining, Chuck had learned that his visceral fat and metabolic age were extremely high. After running and exercising in a traditional gym setting, he decided he needed a change. He took his first boxing class led by Casey and was hooked! Despite a recent lupus diagnosis and ongoing chronic back pain, Chuck committed to TITLE Boxing Club. He religiously goes to class three times a week since joining. He has also focused on clean, healthy eating. In the months since he's been a member, he's lost more than 40 pounds and significantly decreased his visceral fat, metabolic age, and body fat. At 42 years old, he is in the best shape of his life! Chuck loves the encouragement and motivation from all the trainers. He is always telling others how great it is to work out at TITLE, and...
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 and gloves are essential for your protection and mandatory for class. If you have some bring 'em, If you don't, no worries. We sell all equipment at the club. Make sure to also bring a bottle of water and a towel! Plan on arriving 20-30 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!
Can I try a class before joining?
Of course you can take classes before purchasing a membership. We have drop-in rates for single classes, three or six classes. These are great for people who travel often or want to try us out. You can choose our best value option and commit to a membership any time.
Do you have showers?
We do have a private shower for you to clean up after your workout and please bring any essentials you may need!
