Another member profile, letting you hear straight from the members how their experience has been at The Arena. Check out Maggie Duarte’s story about her journey in Coach Joe’s Boxing class and Coach Jason’s Fight Built class.


Maggie Duarte:
I have been coming here for about a year and a couple of months. I’m born and raised here in San Diego and I’ve been to a few other fight gyms and everybody who’s from here knows The Arena’s at the top. I said I’m just going to go and check it out. I was a little bit intimidated, but everybody was very friendly here. I’ve never felt any bad vibes from anybody. Ever since then, I’ve pretty much been here every single day that it’s open.

I do the boxing class, as well as I lift on my own, and I also do the fight build class with Coach Jason. I noticed a lot of improvement not just in my physical fitness, but also my mental as well. Being a better person. And what that includes is having discipline, being committed, and also being consistent. The environment here, it helped me be accountable for myself. It makes me want to come in here every day. I don’t know about anybody else, but at least that’s how I feel.
