Colorado Springs Kickboxing Success Stories

Before you spend your hard earned money on yet another fitness program or hire a personal trainer...

Ask for proof of results.

After all, results are what really count, right?

I agree...

Let's be honest...

There are a several good kickboxing classes, fitness centers and personal trainers in Colorado Springs who promise to get great results.

A kickboxing gym or trainer should be able to do more than talk about how good they are and the great results they claim they can get you.

In fact, they should be able to show you a few REAL, local success stories and PROVE that they can deliver the results you're looking for.

If a kickboxing program or boot camp fitness program can't provide this kind of concrete proof, then be careful!

I’ll just be honest and admit to a fondness for bragging about my clients.

I love to talk about them and their amazing results because they are truly an inspiration to others and they are proof that my fitness programs work.

I know of no other kickboxing program or personal trainer in Colorado Springs that has more life-changing success stories and client testimonials. 

Some of the people that have benefited most from my program have been:

  • Teens who want to build self-confidence and manage stress while learning self-defense.
  • Busy Moms who need a fast, energizing workout to burn a ton of calories, manage stress and increase their energy levels - all day long. 
  • Military Spouses who want to get fit, lose inches and get toned - and transform their body to surprise their husbands when they return from deployment. 
  • Busy Students who want something different and want to have a blast getting in shape, tone up and stay fit. 
  • New Moms who are tired of struggling to lose that stubborn 'baby fat' and want to get their body back to fit in their favorite clothes again.
  • Brides who want to look and feel their best on their wedding day and honeymoon. 
  • Overweight women of all ages and fitness levels who have tried everything and are tired of 'yo-yo' diets and boring fitness programs that don't deliver the results they promise. 
  • Teachers who are ready to look and feel better then ever and return to the school year with a renewed focus and vitality to keep up with the demands of their busy schedule.
  • Men and Women 40 + and 50 + who want to slow the effects of aging, reclaim their metabolism, muscle tone, and get stronger.

I promise to teach, motivate and coach you every step of the way through your kickboxing program and will constantly monitor and adjust every aspect of your fitness program. I will personally make the changes you need to speed results allowing you to see the progress you've made.

You won’t find that level of customer service in just any kickboxing program in Colorado Springs.

In fact, I know of no other boxing or kickboxing program in Colorado Springs that comes close to providing you with the results you deserve!

If my program doesn't deliver everything I say and more, if it doesn’t save you time, money and frustration, if it doesn't work for you and deliver real results...

If it isn't life-changing, you have nothing to worry about because you can get every dime of your money back under my 100% money back guarantee!

What you're about to discover, just like the thousands of clients that I have trained and coached over the last 23 years is that my boxing, kickboxing and fitness programs are among the very best.

But don't take my word for it, here's what some of my clients have to say about my boxing and kickboxing classes:

"Me boxing? I am over fifty, a grandmother, never hit anyone in my life and was quite sure that boxing for someone other than me. I did'nt even care that much to see it on television. Boy, was I wrong. Joe's boxing workouts have been tremendous.

It is a great workout and there is something about putting on the gloves and hitting a heavy bag or a punching dummy that really gets the stress out of your system. Exercise is big part of losing weight and keeping fit. I struggled to actually make any progress until I found an exercise routine that I enjoyed. The boxing workouts have been an absolute blast. I have lost over 9% body fat and 19 lbs. in 12 weeks. I continue to work toward my goal with Joe's boxing and boot camp workouts. I can't say that I enjoy watching boxing on TV still, but I do enjoy the rigorous boxing sessions.

Give boxing a try and you might find just like me, that it is fun to hit something."

"I've never looked leaner and more toned!"

"In the Fall of 2009 I began my first year of college. Fortunately, I hadn't gained the "freshman fifteen". That was because I was a track runner in high school and had continued to run and exercise into college. I can honestly say I have never been overweight, but I have been around the same weight, give or take a few pounds since middle school. I had been working out more than ever before, going to the gym four or five days a week, running a 5k every week, and trying out different group fitness classes.

I hadn't seen much of a change and it was discouraging. Around Spring Break one of my friends had been seing significant changes in the way she looked and she felt great. She told me about Joe's kickboxing program and how it was the best workout she ever had. I decided to check it out for myself.

I must say that the first workout with Joe was one to remember. I had never had such an intense, yet fun workout. I have to say that it is my favorite part of the day. Joe encourages me and pushes me to do the best that I can both mentally and physically. I feel strong and motivated. He's walked me through eating right, which is something I had felt like I was doing all along, but when I started kickboxing with Joe, my eating habits became even better and I really felt a difference.

I have lost 3 dress sizes and 10 pounds and have never looked leaner and more toned than I am today. Every day when I look in the mirror I feel so accomplished. I would have never been able to change my body without Joe's kickboxing. If you want to change the way you look and feel I would, without hesitation, recommend Joe's kickboxing. The atmosphere is always fun and you get to work with others who are encouaraging and enthusiastic. If I had to start from scratch, I would choose Joe's kickboxing program all over again! Thank you Joe!!

"I didn’t know I could look and feel this amazing and I owe it all to Joe."

"Throughout my life I have been a soccer player. My life was dedicated to soccer and thanks to soccer I was always toned and happy with the way I looked. During my junior year of high school soccer tragedy struck. I tore ligaments in my ankle causing me to have surgery and throwing me out of my soccer career forever. Before my surgery I was a size seven.

During my year recovery I gained twenty-five pounds putting me at a size eleven. I was disgusted with myself that I let this happen. After discussing the matter with my dad we got on the web and looked up personal trainers. The first web page that popped up was Joe’s.

Within reading the first two sentences I was hooked. As soon as I woke up the next morning I called Joe and scheduled an appointment.

 The first day meeting with Joe, I wasn’t sure on how it would go. Within the first five minutes Joe made me feel comfortable and really made me feel the burn. I started in July and after returning to work in August all of my CO-workers commented saying “Wow Stephanie, have you lost weight? You look amazing,” and “Hey you! You look like a different person! Great job!” All of these comment made me feel confident about myself. I didn’t know I could look and feel this amazing and I owe it all to Joe.

Since I started with Joe, I went from a size eleven to a size four. I saw my results creep up on me in a few short months. The first day I noticed that my clothes looked like they were hanging on me, I’ve never felt so excited to go shopping. It was the best feeling I have ever felt.

Feeling the way I feel, looking the way I do, and the amazing amount of confidence I carry with me every day is because of Joe. He motivates and supports in the best ways possible. Making the decision to start working out with Joe has been the best decision I have ever made. To date, I have lost seven sizes. I no longer have to hide wearing a bikini, and I can strut like a model in a run way show and be proud of it. I thank Joe for his support and friendship, motivating me and pushing me closer to the results I desire. He is truly the best trainer and will give you the real results you deserve."

"I can now wear anything in my closet!"

“I’m a 42 year old mother of three (all three c-sections) who had been told I look good “for my age.” I didn’t want to just look good for my age, I wanted to look great…for a younger age! The truth is that I didn’t even feel I looked good at all. I knew about the fat that was lurking under my clothing. I tried to camouflage it with baggy, long shirts. But, ultimately, I took off my clothing and looked in the mirror and saw how out of shape I had become. I tried a cleanse and lost weight, but my body was still flabby, and I just couldn’t maintain the liquid lifestyle needed to retain the weight loss. I finally decided that I didn’t want to be ordinary anymore. After looking online, I found Joe’s Bootcamp for Women. I gained an instant love for exercise.

The ladies I work out with are fun, amazing, and inspiring. I look forward to starting my day working out with them and watching their progress along with my own. We work hard but always have time for laughing and joking which makes the 45 minutes go by even faster. I always feel a little sad when the class is over…but I know I will be back for another one. One of the great things about Joe’s bootcamp is that even though there are other ladies in the class, you still receive personal training. Your workout is what you need. Joe will alter any exercise based on each person and any medical/physical needs. He checks your form to make sure you are getting optimal performance from each exercise. In addition to helping with form, Joe offers individual encouragement to each person. Joe cares about each person’s progress and will help you not just with your exercise fitness goals but your nutrition plan, as well.

All in all, it is personal training in a fun environment with the camaraderie of other ladies with an ever changing, fun-filled work-out. As for my results, I have lost over 10 pounds, 18 inches, and 10% body fat. I no longer dread trying on clothing…I actually really enjoy it now. I can now wear anything in my closet and drawers, but some things may be too big. I went from wearing a tight size 6/7 to a nice fitting 2/3. After having three c-sections, I never thought I would see an actual stomach muscle. I was sure I would have that muffin top forever. I’m happily reporting that my muffin top is shrinking. It is a great feeling to have my pants be too big around the waist. I have even needed smaller belts. I actually ordered a bikini online and had to return the bottoms and exchange them from a small to an x-small. For the first time in my life, I don’t want to lose any weight. I will continue to tone and strengthen my body with exercise and nutrition and the greatest trainer, Joe as I want to continue to improve my overall health and increase my energy and stamina.

"I feel better than I have in years!"

"I first started Joe’s Boot Camp because I was working out on my own for 6 months and was not seeing any results. My main goal was to lose weight, get healthy, and run a 5k this coming summer.

In addition, my Mom died because of a stroke at the age of 56 and my dad died because of congestive heart failure at the age of 63. I want to stay healthy and live a long, active life.

I started noticing results and getting compliments in the first few weeks! I’ve gone from a size 12 to a size 8 and I’ve lost 16 lbs. I feel better than I have in years! I’ve learned that I don’t have to starve myself to lose weight.

I’ve discovered how to avoid foods that keep me from my goal.  I am eating healthy and I love it! I have so much more energy to play with my kids. I never want to let weight and health issues interfere with the time I have with my kids. They are only young once! This healthy lifestyle is great and I plan on eating right and exercising from now on. Thank you Joe and Eric for helping me reach my goals and live a better, happier life.”

"I'm so encouraged!"

"I joined Joe’s Boot Camp after I began yet another summer unable to fit into my clothes from the previous summer. Last year I had to buy several items of clothing to compensate for the weight I gained over the year before – and here I was unable to fit into last year’s “fat” clothes. So I determined to stop the cycle with Joe’s help. I figured it would take 2-3 months before my shorts would fit over my hips and actually zip up. To my utter amazement, only 4 weeks of working out with Joe I accomplished my goal! Today I tried on all the clothes I couldn’t wear just a month ago – they not only fit but they look great! I couldn’t believe my eyes. Joe has saved me hundreds of dollars at the mall by avoiding the need for another summer wardrobe – that’s the best money I’ve ever saved! I’m so encouraged – fast results are the anecdote to despair. It’s so great to begin feeling like myself again. I lost 15.5 lbs and 7.25 inches! I’m looking forward to another month of Boot Camp and fitting into the clothes I wore 2 summers ago – game on!!"

"I am completely addicted!

"I was involved in a motorcycle accident that led me to gain a lot of weight, knee surgery and an inactive, unhealthy lifestyle. I was in rehab for a long time after surgery and had to re-learn how to walk. I joined weight watchers to help me lose the weight I had put on and it helped me to get on the path of living a healthy lifestyle. The only thing missing from weight watchers was an exercise program designed for women that would aid in weight loss and fat reduction. I found Joe’s boot camp online and signed up. I have now been doing Joe’s boot camp for 5 months and I am completely addicted! I have met amazing women and my energy level has increased tenfold. I have had fantastic results in every way possible, for instance: I used to be out of breath after running one lap around the track, this year I ran the Bolder Boulder. I used to take 5 anti-inflammatory pills every day for my knee pain/swelling, now my knee is strong enough that it doesn’t swell up and hurt.

When I first started boot camp, I couldn’t even do 1 push up, now I can do 20 real push ups, not on my knees! The last time I bought a skirt at JC Penny, it was 4 sizes bigger then the one I bought last week, two of those sizes were thanks to weight watchers and two of those sizes were thanks to Joe’s boot camp. I used to be hooked on shopping for shoes, purses and jewelry because those were the only sizes I could handle looking at, now I like to shop for jeans. I saw my orthopedic surgeon, the last time I saw him I was 25 pounds heavier and barely mobile. The best result I have received since joining boot camp is the fact that I am so much happier, healthier and I have so much fun in boot camp. Joe is the best personal trainer I could ever ask for, he is knowledgeable, smart, fun, motivating and his boot camp has brought exercise back into my life. I love Joe’s boot camp and it is the perfect exercise program!"

"The best money I've ever spent!" 

I am a working mom in my early 40's with 2 daughters in elementary school. My time is very important, but I also know that it is important to stay fit. After attending Joe's boot camp 3 days a week for 5 months, he invited me to attend one of his boxing fitness classes.

I was skeptical at first because I wasn't sure I would actually like boxing. Beign a bit of a "girly girl", I had never really had the urge to punch anything.

Wow, was I wrong! Boxing is not only a lot of fun and an amazing stress reliever, its also a great cardio workout and makes me feel empowered and amazing! After boxing for only twice for a month, my arms became more toned and defined than they have ever been. Boxing has also helped in getting  my abs more defined and has strengthen my core even more! After 12 weeks of working with Joe I had gone down 2 sizes, from a size 8 to a size 4.  I haven’t been this small since High School!  I feel great, both mentally and physically and have tons of energy.  I love seeing the definition in my arms, abs and legs when I look in the mirror.  I have had several compliments and several people have asked what I’ve been doing to get such results.  I am now down to a size 0/2! I always let them know that working with Joe has been the key to my success.  He is such a fantastic motivator and truly knows his “stuff.” I would recommend Joe's boxing program to anyone who is looking for a fun, effective workout that is never boring!

"I lost 10 pounds in the first week!"

I have been going to Joe's for 2 months now and have seen some dramatic, unbelievable changes! I have always thought I was “pretty healthy”. I have always maintained a healthy weight, tried to eat healthy, exercised when I could and took my vitamins. Seeing my efforts, people would always say, “You’re so slim and fit, why are you so worried?” Well, health is not just what you see on the outside, but perhaps more importantly what’s going on inside. My problem was I could never get my high cholesterol under control, no matter what I tried. My cholesterol has been high ever since I first got it tested, over 15 years ago. It has always been between 232 and 245. Total cholesterol should be below 200. With my Dad having an early heart attack and bypass surgery, that put me at high risk. After threatening for many years, my doctor finally said I had to go on a statin drug. I had a bad reaction to it so, I pleaded for one last time to let me try on my own before going through the many drugs to see which one I could tolerate.

I saw an promotion for Joe’s Boot Camp and decided to try it. I did the “Fat Flush” Meal Plan to jump start my “real” healthy diet and try to eliminate the unhealthy cravings as I always had quite the sweet tooth. Well, I lost 10 pounds in the first week! While weight loss wasn’t my goal, I knew I was on to something. I continued with a drastic change in my diet following all the tips from the phase I and II meal plans Joe provided. I was going to boot camp 3x/week, following my healthy eating plan and I was taking a cholesterol supplement. My energy increase is amazing, I can notice a change in my muscle tone, and I feel so much stronger! I am feeling so much better and my crazy sugar cravings are gone! But the best news of all was the call from the nurse that my cholesterol has dropped from 245 to 180!!! I have never been able to do this! My HDL “good” cholesterol that has never been higher than 69, jumped to 83! HDL is directly related to exercise and protects against a high LDL “bad” cholesterol level. My LDL, directly related to diet, was as high as 147 – it dropped to 89!!! My total ratio now puts me at low risk for heart disease, something I’ve been waiting to hear for years! No statin drugs for me! Thanks Joe, and Women’s Boot Camp Fitness – I couldn’t have done it without you!!!

"I feel comfortable and empowered"

When I had done cardio kickboxing in the past, I felt like a dummy in front of a bag. As soon as I started boxing with Joe, everything changed,  I felt comfortable and empowered to do my workouts.
My self-esteem and confidence seemed to grow with every single punch. Thank you Joe for getting me back in shape.

"I loved every minute of my workouts with Joe!"

I'm a 19 year old college student. I became interested in taking boxing lessons after completing my freshman year of college because I missed the competition and athletic challenge I had become accustomed to as a high school athlete. I can honestly say that I loved every minute of my workouts with Joe! Not only are the sessions exciting and challenging, but they are also a great source of stress relief and incredible self-confidence promoters. In addition, Joe is a wonderful trainer who truly cares about his clients in every sense- mind, body, and spirit. He works hard not only to keep workouts fun,engaging and personal, but also to ensure that everyone has the best experience possible. I am so happy that I found Joe and I can't wait until I come back from school so I can continue my workouts!

"An intense cardio workout!"

"As a busy mom of three small kids, I am constantly looking for ways to relieve stress. Joe's Boxing program has proven to be one of the best ways for me to not only get rid of stress but also get in an intense cardio workout!

When I leave one of Joe's boxing classes, I'm in a great state of mind. I feel like I've accomplished a lot. There is no other natural stress reliever or mood booster like a boxing workout with Joe.

"A first-rate workout!"

"I have been working out consistently at the gym for about a year now, but I began to find it very hard to keep my focus. However, that is not the case now thanks to Joe's boxing. Joe's boxing program is fun and offers a first-rate workout! I have noticed my endurance and strength has increased ever since I started the boxing workouts."
