HISTORY OF MITTFIT
Tony Collino was trained by his “Papa” Joe Giarmo (assistant coach 1960 Olympic training team with Cassius Clay (ALI). Tony “BIG TONE” Collino was a Golden Glove and State AAU champion and the 1st person to achieve the Level 3 Elite certification in “Mittology” program under James “Coach Rick” Coward. In 2013 Title Boxing Clubs hired Tony and quickly promoted him to Head Regional Trainer and then during the 2014 Title national convention Tony was awarded” Trainer of the Year” out of 1900 trainers. Tony also is a certified USA amateur boxing coach, Licensed Professional Boxing Trainer along with holding an ACE fitness personal trainer certification.
After 36 years in the boxing game and now being referred to as Coach Tony, he continues to train many top level amateur Golden Gloves Champions as well as Professional Boxing World Champions and top contenders and also continues to share his Mittfit system with a number of fitness franchises and training facilities.
While Coach Tony was designing boxing programs and rounds all over the United States for Title Boxing Clubs it soon became clear while watching classes and trainers that there was a lot to be desired when it came to executing proper form!
One thing was clear… “Form Matters!”. Coach Tony saw that there was a risk for injury on top of the fact that the proper muscle groups were not being utilized.
Often trainers sacrificed form and proper training for the sake of the workout. Improper training not only puts the trainer and the client at risk, it also decreases the number of calories being burned and the client was not getting a true whole-body workout.
“So, I took my acquired knowledge of 36 years around boxing as well as the years of honing my skills working with top trainers and professional athletes and decided to design a multi-level program that anyone can learn, adapt to and get in great shape, welcome to Mittfit “Form Matters”. – Coach Tony
