Meet Paul Pelletier of Scottsdale Boxing Club in Scottsdale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Paul Pelletier.

Paul is a twenty year Navy veteran. During his career, he had the privilege of working with our nation’s Special Forces including seven years working in support of the Navy SEALs.

His passion for teaching and physical fitness led him to become an A.F.A.A. Certified personal trainer. Paul states that; “Personal training and boxing is not just about how much you know. It’s about educating people in a way that makes getting in shape enjoyable.”

Paul, owner of Edge Fitness is proud to announce the opening of the Scottsdale Boxing Club, (SBC), a new membership boxing club to help the community find a health and fitness balance through the art of boxing! This new boxing only club will be Pelletier’s second fitness studio in the neighborhood, located on 10810 N. 71st. Pl., Scottsdale, AZ. SBC is in walking distance to Edge Fitness, a private one-on-one and semi-private training studio, which has been serving the community for over 12 years. The Scottsdale Boxing Club is now open and will provide an environment that motivates members to work hard while having a blast!

According to Paul, “We are strictly a boxing club, a lot of other clubs do MMA as well, but we like the discipline of boxing! What makes us unique is the combination of our patrons; we have members from all walks of life, from professional boxers to people who have never picked up a glove in their life.”

Scottsdale Boxing Club is especially proud of their trainers. Vassiliy Jirov won a gold medal at the 1996 Olympics, became a Val Barker Award Winner, and Cruiser Weight Champion of the World for his boxing accolades. Fidel Hernandez is a Arizona State Boxing Champion and International Box Federation Champion.

After a 16 year layoff Fidel returned to the ring on October 14, 2017 and won with a TKO after 2 rounds in the Iron Boy 42 and Nicole Greene trainer recently was certified in Parkinson Wellness Recovery – PWR’s Basic4 moves and is excited to be able to now implement PWR!’s program as an addition to her non-contract boxing therapy for Parkinson disease clients.
