Hear what The Arena’s Jose Hernandez has to say about his experience training with Boxing Coach Joe Vargas.
My name is Jose Hernandez. I’ve been here training at the arena for about three or four years altogether. Training with coach Joe? Yeah, I love it.
The gym is great. I’ve trained at one other gym for a couple years. But, honestly, this space is much better. I feel like I learn a lot more as far as my boxing skills. I feel like I have a better relationship with the coach.
I took a break in between the four years that I was training and I loved it so much that I came back without hesitation. So when I was ready to box again, I knew this was the gym that I wanted to box at.
Everyone here is great. Everyone’s trying to help you. You get a lot of support. It’s like a family, like community. I come in everyday. I say what’s up to everybody. Everybody says what’s up to me. So it feels good to be here.
Coach Joe, he’s a great coach. He’s real serious about boxing. If you give him 100%, you know he’ll give you 100%. He’s a really knowledgeable coach, so I feel blessed to be working with him, because I’ve learned a lot from Coach Joe.
