Vlad Panin Portrait


Santa Monica, Coach

My Why

"You can catch flies with honey, but you can catch more honeys being fly."

My Beats

Vlad has found a lot of success throughout his years as a boxer. He started the sport young and spent much of the past few years traveling cross-country, competing and excelling in boxing tournaments. Recently Vlad accomplished his lifelong dream, training beside his idol, WBO World Welterweight Champion Floyd Mayweather. After an enviable career Vlad turned his passion to coaching. He moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Santa Monica to join our Gloveworx team, bringing with him a mindset he applies to himself and his students every day in the ring, “Nothing is impossible.” 

Vlad coaches because he wants to positively impact the lives of others. He’s felt the effects both mentally and physically that boxing can bring to your life, and by focusing especially on technique, he’s able to share those effects with every person he coaches. Before a session with Vlad, he’ll want to set your fitness goals together, laying out a program that will get you out of your comfort zone but that is still achievable. To him, it’s all about consistency. Stay consistent, and growth and development will follow. Vlad is a motivating coach that encourages every new athlete, making sure they stick with it and reach their goals. That’s what it means to be a coach, “I’m there to push them when they don’t think they can push anymore.”
