Robbie began boxing at The Arena with Coach Joe Vargas a couple years ago and fell in love with the sport. Check out what he has to say about his time at the gym, and come experience it for yourself.
I’m Robbie Gabriel. I’ve been training at Arena for almost two and a half years now. I just kind of walked in one day and decided to do a boxing class with a friend, and kind of fell in love with it. We’ve been here ever since.
I’ve been an athlete all my life, but no real combat training. So boxing is the first real combat sport I’ve ever experienced. I’ve really seen a lot of guys come in here with no experience whatsoever that have really just put in some good work, and the coaches noticed it, and they helped them get to where they wanted to be.
We got a great family going on around here. Most people, I’d say, stick with it pretty consistently. And you really get to know everyone you work with here and kind of appreciate the help they give you. Everyone here is trying to get better. Everyone’s trying to get everyone else better. There’s no egos here. Everyone’s just willing to work and it’s a fun environment.
