Jupiter Boxing Club founder John Daddono has quite the r?sum?. He began his competitive boxing career at age 15 and went on to train champions such as Louie Lomeli, James Flowers, and Olympic bronze medalist Kenny Gould, guiding them to victory with his devastating in-the-ring strategies. He founded and still chairs the International Boxing Organization, which determines boxing-tournament rules. Most recently, he was inducted into Florida's Boxing Hall of Fame. Now, he works with former Olympic coaches, Brazilian jujitsu black belts, and competitive mixed martial artists to bring students a comprehensive fitness experience at Jupiter Boxing Club?named after planet Jupiter's infamous eye, which turned all purple after John punched it.
