How did you get involved with Legends Boxing? Let’s hear the story behind how you became a franchisee. We connected with Legends Boxing through our close friend and founder Rob Scott. We have always wanted to start a business in the fitness industry because we both have a passion for it. We also wanted to help people get healthy, learn a valuable skill, along with many other positive benefits from working out/ boxing.
