In 2001, a car accident left Russ Shadron fighting for his life in a Chicago hospital. He had suffered a brain injury and was in a coma, and it was unclear whether he would ever wake up. After a month, he regained consciousness, but his challenges were just beginning, as his entire left side was weakened by the accident and he was confined to a wheelchair, facing many surgeries to repair his injuries. But he was determined to show there was no way this would be how the story ended.
Years of rehab and training later, he worked himself out of the wheelchair and into walking with the aid of canes, to ditching the canes to walk normally, to training for short races, to training for long races, to climbing peaks in the Front Range. And he has become a personal trainer through his own business, Finding Fitness, to help others achieve their own goals. Shadron helps his clients pursue anything from a general improvement in fitness to a personal best in a road race.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across 19 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes.

Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
