SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Salt Lake City based Legends Boxing announces the opening of their newest location. The gym is located in the prestigious Memorial area of Houston, Texas and is owned and operated by Memorial area resident Kevin Blodgett.
Legends Boxing was co-founded in 2011 by Andrew Scott with a mission to provide the ultimate full body workout, while learning real USA Boxing techniques and step-by-step fitness boxing classes. Mr. Scott is a two time Golden Gloves State Champion and is excited about the growth into the Houston market. “Every time I think about opening Legends Boxing outside of Utah, I get emotional as just a few years ago I never imagined this kind of growth. But now Legends Boxing Memorial in Houston, Texas, is about to open its doors,” says Andrew. “Owner Kevin Blodgett and Head Coach Tom Geiselhart live our Core Values, care about their Tribe, and have worked so hard to get things started. I knew after working with Kevin and Tom that these guys were the right people to bring the Legends Boxing brand to Houston.”
Mr. Blodgett comes to the concept with an esteemed and diversified background. He began his career as a corporate lawyer for the Houston-based international law firm of Baker Botts LLP, and later served as General Counsel to a Fortune 500 energy company and a private equity-backed oilfield services company. “I practiced law for 20 years and was privileged to work for great companies with fantastic people,” says Kevin. “As a now ‘recovering lawyer’ and lifelong fitness junkie, I am thoroughly enjoying this venture into the boutique fitness space.” After looking at several business concepts, he was impressed by Legends Boxing as it brings a true boxing workout to everyone. “I love that Legends Boxing has and lives by its Core Values and I am excited to start my next career with this emerging brand. I’ve done nearly every kind of workout and belonged to most every kind of gym out there, and I can honestly say that nothing beats a Legends Boxing workout.”
The flagship Legends Boxing Memorial location is the first of 20 locations planned for the Houston area with a nationwide expansion plan starting in 2020 For additional information about the franchise opportunities please go to legendsboxing.com/franchise.
