In this episode we began by attending a class at Boxstar Training (think High Intensity Interval Training with a focus on Boxing and Kickboxing movements) with co-owner Drew Graziadei and then sat down with him to discuss his background, the gym, and more.
At age 18 Drew started his fighting career training at Empire Academy in Rochester. He later returned to Buffalo and dabbled in both MMA, Kickboxing, and Boxing. He had winning records in all three fighting arts, winning the super heavyweight NYS Golden Gloves Open Class Championships in 2012 and 2014.
As the co-owner and founder of Boxstar Training on Elmwood Ave in Buffalo, Drew uses the conditioning routines, drills, and training experiences from his various coaches and influences to design fun, engaging, heart-pumping workouts for people of any age, gender, experience, or fitness level. Most recently he's invented a "workout truck" or mobile pop-up gym that you can look out for this Summer.
We had a blast doing 12 rounds (HIIT style) and then interviewing Drew, and we think you'll love listening!
