Where you Train Like a Boxer

Boxing

To train for a boxing match is to get into the absolute best shape of your life. Boxers need to be lean, strong, quick, powerful, and energized, and just as importantly, have a calm and centered state of mind. THAT is what it is to Train Like a Boxer, and THAT is what you'll work towards each and every time you enter the training studio.

Training

No big machines, no heavy weights, nothing that plugs in! Through the power of your own body you will experience one-of-a-kind workouts each time you visit our studio. Pair high intensity, plyometric training with traditional boxing and experience our concept of Training Like a Boxer.

Nutrition

We take nutrition seriously and believe that no matter how hard you push it in the ring or on the turf, without the right fuel for your body you will never be able to perform at your highest level. Don’t waste the time and effort you have devoted to your training. Find your nutrition strategy and exceed your potential!

Kids Programs

It's never too early to develop an understanding of health and nutrition! Let Vo2max be the outlet for that understanding with all of our family-focused programs.

Special Programs

Sometimes what your training needs is some extra motivation - we have programs for every goal, from Fight Club and Spartan Race Training to Corporate Challenges. Find the spark that gets you in to Train Like a Boxer!

    Welcome to Vo2max Fitness! My wife and I have spent the last year making our dream a reality and I know that our concept will change your life! Here is a little about my history and the evolution of the Vo2max Fitness Revolution!

    I have been asked many times why Vo2max Fitness? My answer is simple: I want to help people find wellness. I want to help our clients understand nutrition and fitness and how both play an equal and essential role in our lives. Anyone can make the change. Here is my story:

    Growing up I was overweight at a time when being a “chubby kid” was not as acceptable as it is today. I never excelled at sports and I spent many days terrified of gym class: those ropes I couldn’t climb and the pull-up’s I could not do. I never completed a single pull-up my entire adolescent life! It is a regret I will always have, but one that motivates me to this very day. Today I can not only do multiple pull-up’s, but I can do a one-handed pull-up, a corn-cob pull-up and push-up’s balanced on four medicine balls! I can run faster, train harder and most importantly, confidently approach life. I have achieved balanced wellness in my life, training and nutrition.

    My first real encounter with fitness began in high school. I attended the Belmont Hill School where I joined the crew team and rowed in the Head of the Charles my senior year. It was during my time at Belmont Hill that I discovered my love of fitness. While I was certainly not a stellar athlete, I enjoyed the training aspect of fitness. The skills, methods and determination I gained at Belmont Hill became the foundation for my quest to discover the benefits of fitness and nutrition.

    My undergraduate years were spent at Boston University where I studied history and was also very active in my Fraternity, Sigma Chi, including assuming the role of President my junior year. During this time I pursued fitness from a new direction. I joined Gold’s Gym where I trained with a personal trainer for the very first time. I remember how massive my trainer seemed and I aspired to build a similar physique.

    After college I studied education with a concentration in history at Lesley University. I received a degree and became certified to teach history in Massachusetts, which I did for a very short time. While I did not end up at the front of the classroom, the lessons I learned from teaching have guided me through life and significantly contributed to the development of Vo2max Fitness.

    During my educational studies, I worked in the healthcare field at a physical therapy practice in Wellesley. I then joined my father’s medical practice and became the Chief Operating Officer in 2001. To gain a better understanding of business, I am in the MBA and MSF programs at Suffolk University.

    I am also a Certified Fitness Trainer through the ISSA and have just begun an intensive nine-month Nutritional Therapy Program through the Nutritional Therapy Association (yes, the same program Tosca Reno just completed). I am a member of the National Association of Nutrition, the Nutritional Therapy Association, the Academy of Functional Medicine, the Society for Human Resource Management, the American College of Healthcare Executives and the Medical Group Management Association. I am a P90X Qualified trainer and an Insanity Certified Instructor.

    I currently live in Framingham Massachusetts with my wife (and co-Vo2max Fitness President) Jessica, my four- year old daughter Leia, my three- year old son Luke, my two black labs Paige and Dala and our little Yorki-Bishon Cleo. I am also blessed with a seven-year old son Jason who is a star soccer, flag football and tennis player and has already surpassed my athletic prowess!

    Vo2max Fitness is for everyone, young and old, fit and not-so-fit, student, and athlete, working mother, stay-at-home dad, retiree and everyone in-between. Join us and “train like a boxer”, learn how to do a pull-up and find your personal “wellness.” Don’t have any regrets…..I dare you!

    It all started with karate. I got into it as a child and dove back into it with new passion as an adult. I earned my black belt and began teaching it, and quickly realized that teaching others was exactly what I was meant to do. I suffered a small setback a couple years ago when I landed wrong off of a spinning kick, tearing my ACL and meniscus in the process. It limited what I could do with karate. I had the reconstructive surgery and immediately started looking for something similar I could do with my hands that would be kinder to my knee. This brought me through the front doors at Vo2max Fitness. I already loved punching, and thought the boxing training would be good fit for me. I didn't realize it at the time, but this was a pivitol moment in my life. A year and a half later, I've competed in an amateur fight, completed my coach's certification, trained and cornered fighters for THEIR first amateur fights, and live and breathe boxing all day, every day. Nothing gets me more riled up than a good argument over which boxer is the best, or in trying to predict outcomes of upcoming matches. I love how mentally and physically exhausting is, and constantly push myself to come up with new and innovative workouts to drive my clients even further. I love my job and love sharing my passion for boxing with every single person who comes in thinking they might possibly MAYBE want to give it a try. Because it's fun. And it's hard. In a word, it's amazing.

    Growing up in Brazil my passion for combat sports was lit by Bruce Lee, Jean Claude Van Damme, Mike Tyson, and Dragon Ball Z. As I got older my childhood fantasies turned into an obsession with fitness.

    I earned my certificate/diploma from the National Personal Training institute in 2008, and have been training since. Specializing in martial arts conditioning, high intensity interval training, circuit training, and calisthenics.

    For the past couple of years I've trained in Krav Maga, Muay Thai, and Boxing. Using elements of each one to create unique and intense workouts.
