Our Story

In 2006, Coach Dom Arioli took the helm of ROC Boxing & Fitness. He and his team were committed to helping people learn the sweet science of boxing, or simply to use boxing or kettlebell training to get and stay fit, and have fun doing it.

Today Coach and his team's commitment is unwaivered. Our clients are the heartbeat of the ROC. In 2011 we expanded  our facility to provide more floorspace to our clientele to be more comfortable whether taking our awesome classes, or working out individually. In 2012 our membership grew and so did the interest in taking our classes in helping our clients meet their fitness and wellness goals!

Take a look around our web site to get a better understanding of the ROC in general, learn about our classes and programs, and get our contact information.
