Coaching Philosophy:

”Work in discomfort, so you’re never uncomfortable. It’s therapeutic so it’s absolutely necessary. Absolutely essential!“


Coach Niles was introduced to boxing In 2005 but really took to it without many distractions in 2007 by staying actively competitive for the next 11 yrs. Niles Santos fought many amateur fights, sometimes competing 3 to 4 times a month.  Through his active amateur career Niles gained a lot of experience fighting many local champions.

This gained Niles some notoriety that had many people asking for tips and tricks that translated well in the ring, which in turn translated to helping and coaching every up and coming fighter that entered the gym over the past 6 years.
