Meet Stephan Boyd

RingFit Boxing & Training

Hi my name is Stephan Boyd. I have over 15 years experience in boxing, self-defense, weight management and fitness. I am formerly a member of both the Canadian National Boxing team and the Jamaican National Boxing Team. I have represented both countries competing internationally and boxing on 3 different continents. I have trained with some of the nation’s leading fitness experts, conditioning trainers and coaches and have learned from them all. I have competed with and against some of the very best fighters in the world, including current and former World Champions. In 2010, I fought twice, knocking out one opponent and decisively defeating a Commonwealth Games Gold medalist and Pan American Game silver medalist. Currently, I am the NABA Canadian middleweight Champion!

Training Methodology

The Varela’s experience and wisdom set them apart from the rest. I learned the importance of patience and the importance of doing things properly. That is why at Ringfit we don’t cut corners. I feel honoured that I was able to learn this unique and proven system of Central American Boxing. We continue to teach these principles in every training session. Additionally, we assist our clients with the mental toughness to reach their desired goals. The pat on the back when the training becomes challenging, the gentle motivation one needs to see past what is in front of them. The encouragement to be greater than you thought possible.

As a high level professional boxer I am always pushing myself to be stronger, faster and fitter. My workouts are often long and strenuous. Over the years I have developed a program that takes all the elements of traditional boxing, devised a structured system of teaching boxing skills and also a workout that focuses on complete fitness. All of our trainers have coached at the highest possible level and are Ringfit certified. This ensures consistency and integrity to our program.

Success is all relative to the individual. It may be somebody struggling to skip for 30 seconds and then a few weeks later they are skipping nonstop for 10 minutes. It may be that person who all of a sudden to their amazement can fit into that dress or jeans they haven’t worn in years. It may be that person who after 3 months of core training is surprised with how much ease they moved and packed boxes while their spouse struggled and complained with back pain. It may be that teenager who is no longer bullied at school, who can hold their head high after rigorous hours of training in the ring and in the gym. Who now looks and feels ready to embrace the world. Success may mean lacing up the gloves, climbing through the ropes and actually competing in an actual boxing match. In two instances, even winning the Ringside Masters (over 50) World Championships in the largest amateur boxing tournament in the world! Whatever your definition of success is, Ringfit Boxing & Fitness will assist you to achieve your personal fitness goals.
No matter what age or fitness level, Ringfit can help you. We already cater to a broad range of clients, our youngest athlete is 7 years old and our oldest is 79! We are unique, fun, effective & result oriented. I am confident that Ringfit Boxing & Fitness will help you obtain your goals.
