"I was blessed to be in the presence of such great people throughout my earlier years in this business. Not only that, but I was fortunate enough to have them actually care about the direction I took in the field. To give anything less than everything I have to this gym and the people that believe in it would be disrespectful to all those great people that left their legacy within me. Thank you for all your support in helping us create one of the most unique and powerfully energetic facilities in Northeast Ohio."

“My focus is on the specific needs of each individual person that walks through those doors. It still gives me chills to see a smile on our other clients’ faces when they can finally fit into those new clothes or discovering their new found strength within such a short amount of time. In the end, it’s just mental struggle between how much you want out of life versus how much you are going to let everything else bring you down. And when you have the right coach, the struggle becomes that much easier and the destination seems that much closer.”
Joe Mazzone, ACE-PT
Certified Personal Trainer, Class Instructor
Joe participated in a variety of different sports growing up, such as wrestling and baseball, but nothing resonated more with him than the art of boxing. He stuck with it ever since the young age of 16, fighting at the amateur level and loving every minute of it.
"The discipline of it all taught me a lot about myself and what it means to break through perceived barriers and limitations. More importantly, it also helped propel me into the amazing world of health and fitness, where I continuously feel honored to be able to meet new people and help them achieve their personal goals. There isn't much out there that we can't accomplish, and I believe I'm here to help people realize that."

"They just kinda let me lay here all day. It's a good gig. I don't bite, but every once and a while I'll wonder out of my cave to make sure you got a good workout. Give me a good hard back scratch and we'll be perfect friends."
