Illuminate Gym's Newest Franchisee fought his way through Professional Boxing

March 05, 2010 // // DENVER — Illuminate gym, affordable personal training featuring unique High Oxygen Training (HOT), announced today that the Greenwood Village franchise unit will be run by Taj Leon, a former professional boxer.

Taj Leon spent most of his youth working out and training to be a professional boxer only to find that working out was his true passion. Today Taj Leon is only a month away from becoming the newest Illuminate Gym owner and he couldn't be more excited and motivated. "I've worked inside of the Illuminate Gym model for over 3 years now and I feel that I have a great grasp on the business and I can't wait to open up the first Illuminate Gym in Greenwood Village Colorado," Taj said.

The question on everyone's mind is why would a former professional boxer get into a personal training franchise rather than one of the many boxing franchises out there? "First of all I think that the most important part of creating success for clients is keeping their workouts new and fresh. I think a lot of boxing franchises fail in this regard while at Illuminate Gym I can incorporate weight training, cardiovascular training, Yoga and even boxing training into the 'High Oxygen Training' principles. Don't get me wrong I definitely believe that boxing is a wonderful way to get in shape but I think it's important that people have a well rounded workout regimen and I can provide that for my customers at Illuminate Gym," Taj said.

Illuminate Gym is proud to have Taj Leon on board as the newest Illuminate Gym franchisee. "We couldn't be more excited to have Taj be the entrepreneur who is taking the next step in becoming an Illuminate Gym owner and the fact that he's a former professional boxer lets us know that he knows how to work hard for success," David Sedbrook founder and CEO of Illuminate Gym said.

The Greenwood Village Illuminate Gym is set to open at the beginning of April. If you would like to take a closer look at the developments of the Greenwood Village Illuminate Gym then please check it out at or Thanks so much for reading and have a healthy day!
