He is now a partner at Fit 4 Boxing Club II in Murrysville. Joyce Williams (center) has always had a passion for fitness and training.

Dave Carns

Dave Carns was an awesome member of Fit 4 Boxing Club for nearly two years before we brought him on board as a trainer. When he was in his twenties, he was told he had dangerously high blood pressure and high cholesterol. As a result, he would need to start taking medications to keep them in check. Rather than accepting that diagnosis, he chose to fight it by losing 50 pounds. Now he channels that determination and passion into helping others achieve their health and fitness goals. His energetic uptempo style is sure to push you to your limits while having fun.

Kristen was so impressed with the program that she decided to take a 15 Rounds Class and couldn’t believe how much fun boxing was. Fit 4 Boxing Club was so life changing for her and her family, that she decided to make it a more permanent fixture in her life so she could keep encouraging her mother to punch out Parkinson’s!
