Meet the Team
Dedication. Expertise. Passion.
Our incredible team of coaches not only teach the art of boxing and other disciplines, but also introduce young students to the fascinating world of STEM. In our gym, we nurture discipline, commitment, and perseverance through boxing while also sharing knowledge about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
We create a space where students grow, both physically and intellectually, fostering a love for the sport.
Founder and Director
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico; I have celebrated the sport of boxing my whole life and started training in boxing more than 13 years ago.
I find boxing to be a great reliever of stress, proponent of discipline, and confidence builder. As a neuroscientist, I am also very passionate about science and about dressing our youth with the knowledge they need to make academic decisions in the future.
I danced classical ballet for over 15 years and was a principal dancer for a company in PR. And now I love to dance and teach salsa dancing
I have never ever listened to a podcast and I only like to eat ice cream with a fork.
Lead Boxing Coach
Hi! I'm a professional fighter and fitness instructor, a father, and a life-long East Dallasite.
I started boxing in 2003 at age 18. Began MMA, Muay Thai, Jiujitsu and Wrestling in 2012. I started teaching in 2009. Began doing it full-time at the end of 2012. I grew up in the Lakewood area of East Dallas by Woodrow Wilson High School, and graduated from Skyline High School in Pleasant Grove.
I like nerd stuff. Comic books, history, physics, movies, art, theater and I like to play music.
Lead Boxing Coach
Hi! I'm Jonathan, a Dallas native, a graduate of The University of Texas at Arlington, and the owner Box-Up Nation®, which is an online boxing store that helps boxers and combat athletes find the best boxing equipment from around the globe. When I'm not shipping boxing gloves, I'm probably coaching someone on how to throw MEAN left hook!
Outside of boxing, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter, trying the latest energy drink, finding new coffee shops, and binge watching shows on Netflix.
HIIT Coach and Operations Manager
Hi, I'm Kelsi! I grew up in East Dallas, and was always active in sports. I'm currently a fitness instructor, volleyball coach, and running club coach, all on top of my full time job.
I love helping people build strength and confidence. It is so rewarding to be a part of someone’s fitness journey and to witness their progress.
I've been to 13 countries and testified in front of a Grand Jury.
Hello! I was born and raised in East Dallas, I always had a passion for fitness and martial arts. I love the discipline, focus, and mental toughness that come with training, and I'm always looking for new challenges to push myself further.
When I'm not in the gym, you can find me exploring the city, trying new foods, or spending time with my family.
I like giving interviews and currently trying to buy/resale homes.
Hi! I’m Toño, a sports enthusiast that was sparked by me playing baseball in my hometown Ciudad Juárez, MX as a young kid. I’ve been lucky enough to be part of different sports that I’ve played throughout my life, but for the past 5 years I’ve dedicated myself to running and eventually started my boxing training journey. It was easy to fall in love with the sport that I’ve been a fan of my whole life.
Some of the boxers that I look up to are Juan Manuel Márquez, Marco Antonio Barrera, Manny Pacquiao, and Julio César Chávez. There’s too many to count but these are some of the athletes that left an imprint in me. Something I strive for is hard work and being relentless with everything that I love.
I'm a husband and a dog dad.
Head of Marketing
Hello! My name is Diana and I'm from El Paso, TX. I'm a mother, wife and a business owner. I love to keep myself active! And I found my passion in running because it helps me clear my head and keeps me stronger.
Having the discipline of running made me look at myself as a better human, a stronger woman, and an invincible person with the ability to accomplish all the goals I have.
I have a background in multimedia journalism and marketing so it's truly an honor to be part of LaBori Boxing Team and help them grow and spread their amazing cause using the marketing powers.
I used to be an online fitness coach and helping to change so many lives has been the most rewarding feeling.
Some of my photo work was published in NatGeo a long time ago.
My favorite meal is a protein waffle with spinach made by myself with peanut butter on top and blueberries.
