CHRIS RECINOS

Santa Monica, Coach

My Why

"He who conquers others is strong, he who conquers himself is mighty."

Chris grew up in South Central LA playing multiple sports. However, it was the first time he threw a punch to the heavy bag at a local community gym, intended to help kids stay off the streets, that he fell in love with boxing.  One snap of his glove against the leather, and he knew  he had found his sport. He became dedicated to practicing all things technique and footwork. Boxing led him to feel empowered and through coaching special needs kids in high school, he learned what it meant to be a coach, "It made me so aware of the impact a good coach can have on another person's success."  Chris' sessions are high energy, technique-focused, and sure to keep your feet moving.
