Coaching Philosophy:
“I lead with my passion for the sport and the pleasure of working with people looking for positive change.”

Coach Soc has been coaching for over 25 years. Boxing is his full-time career and he has travelled the world going to tournaments and training boxers at all levels. Presently, Coach Soc has two athletes on the Canadian Olympic team. However, he wants it to be known that he enjoys the simple act of moving, hitting and having clients try this lovely sport for the first time. This is where he shines – with the patience and guidance to deliver the fundamentals in an exciting and fun way without compromising the true technique that will last a lifetime. Coach Soc looks forward to forge a relationship for people to attach themselves to a lifestyle of health, fitness and self-care. He looks to empower the defeated and humbly serve those that need an outlet to deal with their mental, emotional and physical health.

“West End Athletic Club is a great location to try out if this style of workout is for you. I chose it as a facility for me to work out of because of the cleanliness, the state-of-the-art equipment, the family run operations and the genuine staff that keeps it operational. It is home to me. Allow me to create a healthy opinion of Boxing and fitness for you to cultivate something you can have for the rest of your life.” – Coach Socrates

Hawaiian Pizza

Client Testimonials:
“Coach Soc has been my boxing and strength & conditioning coach for a little over 3 years now. As a woman that was new to the sport, I found his approach encouraging and physically tough as he was always testing and pushing my personal bests. I have worked with personal trainers before, however, Coach Soc has always pushed me to do better and to surpass my goals beyond my own expectations. He has been extremely patient and supportive in my learning stages, and even now as one of his competitive fighters, his physical and mental coaching has been invaluable not only in my fitness journey but also transcends into my personal and professional life. I would highly recommend him as your coach. You will not be disappointed!” – Crista Aguinaldo
