MEET THE TEAM
Owner, Certified Boxing Trainer
Originally born and raised in Kansas City, KS of 1988, Daniel made his home in Lawrence, KS in 2013 with wife wife, Marren. He established Animal Kingdom Boxing in 2018 and in June of 2021 he began coaching full time out of The Underground Lab.
Having worked with fighters, First Responders, and general fitness participants over the course of 16 years, coach Daniel brings a version of boxing to anybody looking to get in shape in a fun way and learn about the in's and out's of the sport if you're willing to learn. While sticking close to the roots of boxing's old school fundamentals, he also takes you to the next level of boxing you may not have anticipated wanting to learn about. You'll learn to throw the perfect jab but you'll also learn why fighters should never go into a fight without it. Working with pros and amateurs who were fighting for prizes or charities, Daniel has seen his fair share of ring time. The 16 years spent in the world of boxing has given him a unique perspective on how to get you ready for your workout. His experience through training camps, visiting big boxing cities, sparring hundreds of rounds with as many boxers, and being certified by the Box N' Burn Academy (November 2018), you're sure to get a workout that will have you ready for anything!
"I LOVE seeing people get better, do better, be better. Boxing is just an all around great tool that helps you get there. Boxing can do wonders for your health no matter where your level of fitness is hanging out at. But this sport and fitness activity can literally change your life. It most certainly changed mine. My goal is to achieve that same level of change within other people. If you're wanting to lose weight, get fit, become a little more active, learn a new skill, come in and let's talk about it. If you want to feel more accomplished, feel more confident, or feel better about yourself overall, let's talk about it. Whatever goals you have set for yourself, those will become my goals when we start training together. Give boxing a chance to help you feel better. I'll be in your corner the whole way through!"
