Meet Lamont "Izzy" James
Head boxing coach and trainer at Izzy’s Boxing and Fitness. As an Olympic amateur boxer and coach, Lamont brings years of experience to the group. He is registered with the National Personal Training Institute (NPTI) as a certified personal trainer and kettlebell instructor. Lamont was born in Newark, NJ where he was able to learn survival skills early in his child hood while attending Newark Public Schools. Lamont started his fitness and boxing journey in Middle School where he was bullied and close to ending his own life. That moment changed his life forever as he was able to move on and eventually attend and graduate from Bloomfield College where he received a Bachelors degree in Sociology.
Over the years, Lamont studied and developed his boxing skills under the instruction of Coach Joe Zabry and Ahmik "Banga" Bryant.
My life as a trainer/motivator began the moment I decided to change my present and future not only for myself but for future generations. Izzy’s Boxing and Fitness was established to help build a strong foundation in boxing fundamentals, technique, and overall health and fitness. Our life journey takes many unexpected turns and twists that we at times do not have control over. However, our health is that one factor we can control and take back.
