Meet Taylor Merritt of TITLE Boxing Club San Diego

Today we’d like to introduce you to Taylor Merritt.

Taylor, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have always had a passion for fitness; growing up playing sports had a big impact on my life and shaped who I am today. During my time in college, I decided to become a certified personal trainer and certified in sport and fitness nutrition. I also became a member of TITLE Boxing Club back in Chicago, as a place where I could relieve stress and get a great workout. Immediately, I was hooked. TITLE was a second home for me and I loved the family atmosphere they created there. It was much more than just a place to go workout.

Upon moving to San Diego in 2013 with my husband, Spencer, I met Corey and Chris, the owners of TITLE Boxing San Diego. This was my chance to change lives and create that family atmosphere for others that I loved and appreciated so much in Chicago. I have been with TITLE Boxing Club San Diego since we opened as the head trainer and now as the General Manager. While managing all aspects of the club, I still continue my true passion; teaching classes and training clients. The members are the reason why I love my job so much. I feel lucky to get to meet so many unique individuals and have an incredible, “TITLE Family”, as we call it.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Starting a new business is not easy. We have gone through different highs and lows, but overall, the last 4 years have been some of the best. If it weren’t for the incredible support of my team and my husband, we wouldn’t be where we are today. I am truly grateful to be surrounded by people who I call family and know that we support each other and want what is best for TITLE and our amazing members.

    Being a member of Title Boxing i can say with all honesty, we really are a family, the coaches are the best bar none, the workout is all encompassing, we don’t so much compete against each other, we compete with ourself a, we encourage each other to be the best we can.
