Shavar is always a natural athlete and excelled in any form of physical activity. He played baseball, ran track and field, played basketball and football throughout his high school years. At 17, he was introduced to the sport of boxing. He fell in love with it instantly. As soon as he put on his first pair of gloves, every muscle in his body, and every neuron in his brain just knew what to do. He began his amateur training with Olympic silver medalist Egerton Marcus at the Egerton Marcus Boxing Academy. He learned the fundamentals of boxing from Coach Egerton. But more importantly, he learned about discipline, one of the hardest skills to master in boxing. With his passion, hard work, and dedication, he won Silver in the Junior Men’s division at the 2004 Canadian Boxing Nationals. As his amateur training progressed, he moved onto train with Olympic Bronze Medalist Chris Johnson. Shavar won Gold for Ontario at the Canadian Boxing Provincials in 2005. He had to take a break from boxing due to an injury to his dominant right hand. After his recovery, he moved on to train with Peter Wylie at the Cabbagetown Boxing Club. He fought through all the obstacles from his injury and won Gold in the Senior Men’s division at the 2010 Canadian Boxing Nationals. Shavar turned professional in 2013. His goal is to become the Curiserweight Champion of Canada.
Dylan has been with us teaching since 2019. He has over half a decade of training with Ringfit. Dylan started competing in boxing events throughout the city in 2017 and is still presently an active fighter… He loves the sweet science! HIs father played pro basketball but Dylan did not inherit his height… and to tell you the truth, we’re glad he didn’t. One great characteristic about Dylan is he gets just as enthusiastic working with others as he does training himself. Specializing in boxing training but also a wicked endurance, conditioning and cardio trainer. Mixing abstract methods and interval training with a little taste of whatever that’s days specialty might be to create a Frankenstein of a workout and leave you with just the right amount of technical work and sweat! He’s also an excellent cook. Ask about his smoked Salmon…

After 4 weeks of training with Stephen I was hooked. As a long distance runner I get tired of the kilometres; boxing one-on-one gives me the cross-fit exercise I need to prepare for a marathon and it also keeps my body in amazing shape with strength I never knew I could have. Anyone serious about fitness should sign up!
