Bigtime Boxing and Fitness is my second home and Steve and Matty are my bigtime brothers. I have been at Bigtime Boxing and Fitness for a year now and it has changed my life. In the first 4 months of working out at Bigtime I gained knowledge of boxing and personal health. Steve has enriched my knowledge of science and physical health every day that I wok out at the gym. I went from being an 18 year old tennis player to a boxing fanatic to a knowledgable intern who coaches boxing and training. Steve has transformed my love of the gym and boxing into a passion of earning a degree in sports psychology. Steve’s motivation and passion to create the most innovative heart pumping workouts is what truly makes him the best personal/sports specific trainer out here in Boca Raton, FL. Steve is a one of a kind gem who motivates me every day as my mentor and as my trainer.
Dedication is something that takes a lot of heart and effort to obtain, but once you can master it, the world is yours. My name is Liam Cogswell, and I am a 16 year old from Boca Raton, Florida, and I have one dream. My dream is to play professional baseball and to be successful while doing it. I am a sophomore in high school and I am already being recruited by top division 1 schools. I started working out with Steve Stoliker at Big Time Boxing about 4 months ago, and he has changed my life and my entire work ethic in such a short period of time. I know that I would not have any bit of interest from a college for baseball if it wasn’t for Steve being in my life and pushing me to live my dreams every day. Not one person in this world will go out of his or her way like Steve does. He wants the most for me and knows what I need to do everyday to see and live professional baseball. A while back before I started training with Steve, I never knew what it took to be successful and what kind of hard work needed to be put in every day. Steve has taught me dedication, and mainly to never give up on anything in life no matter what it is. Knowing your dream and wanting to be successful at it takes hard work and focus, but it is possible if you put your mind to it. Steve knows and tells me that mindset is everything and that if you set goals, and reach for them every day, you will achieve them. He has taught me and opened up doors for me that I never knew was even possible. Steve has brought me to another level in my life that I never thought my eyes would see. Steve is a person with a huge heart and cares about everyone that comes into his life no matter who you are. Steve is not like anyone else, he knows my dream and ever since we started training, he would do anything to live my dream with me. He has given me drive and strength to keep pushing forward no matter how many times I fall down, and I will fight for my dreams and I will give it all I have no matter how much it hurts thanks to Steve being in my life. He will make me succeed because pain is temporary, but greatness is forever.
Over the past few years I have done various workout routines from Pilates, Barre, Spin, and one on one personal training. I spent a few months at another local gym here in Boca Raton working one on one with their trainers, and it was nowhere near the level of expertise, professionalism, and friendliness that I now enjoy at Big Time Boxing. Being a petite 5’2″ 25 year old girl I was slightly intimidated when I first went into the gym and saw the various boxers and trainers, but after a month of training with Steve I can say that making the move and joining Big Time Boxing has been one of the best decisions of my life. I genuinely look forward to working out with Steve each week. He makes it fun, enjoyable, and before I know it our work out is over. We train 5 days a week and our workouts are never repetitive. I highly recommend this gym if you are looking for a place that will bring your health and fitness to the next level.
I was introduced to Big Time Boxing thru Jameel “Big Time” McCline…. Knowing and training with both Matty and Steven has been and continues to be the highlight of my day! I start out at 7:30am 5 days a week. Matty is the boxing consummate. Steven is my conditioning and strength trainer. They support and encourage me on a whole other level. It has been a complete eye opening experience and the level of professionalism and expertise is unsurpassed! I’m grateful for the personalized and individual attention I receive as I’m greeted each morning with a “Big” smile to help me persevere to help me reach my goal!!! I highly recommend Big Time Boxing! The boys are the best!!
After years of trying a multitude of ways of losing weight, some ways unconventional and some ways even unsafe. All that changed the moment I walked into Big Time and met Steve. Not only did his New York swagger sway me into joining this energetic atmosphere. He gave me the lecture of a lifetime. He told me I needed to change my life. After a year, I lost 75 pounds training with Steve. Steve became more than my trainer, he became my mentor and life coach which is invaluable to say the least. Steve not only helped me get my body right and in shape, but he helped get my mind right. He instilled discipline and values in my life that cannot be taught or bought anywhere else in this world. The moment I came underneath Steve’s wing, I felt like I became a personal and genuine investment to him and that is a feeling that you cannot obtain from just any trainer. I cannot express my gratitude enough to anyone else in my lifetime because this is a man who helped me get my life back. Without saying, his services are priceless and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to truly change their lives.
