Meet Team Jaco

history1Jaco’s Boxing can be simply described with one word: Authentic.  An authentic nature stemmed in passion and hard work learned from a family dedicated to the sport of boxing.  Adam began his career long before entering the ring as he stood in the shadow of his father.   David Jaco, a heavyweight professional fighter who fought in the ring alongside Mike Tyson, George Foreman, Buster Douglas, Tony Tucker, Tommy Morrison, Oliver McCall, Mike Weaver, and Donovan “Razor” Ruddock.  This local legend inspired not only the community of Sarasota, but created a lasting impression on his two sons, Aaron and Adam.

history3When it came to living up to the families legacy, Adam Jaco didn’t disappoint.  He quickly grew among the ranks to become a super middleweight fighter and three-time state champion.  Boxing was in his blood; it was his passion.  A passion that couldn’t be stifled or calmed.  It became a fire that couldn’t be contained in himself, rather had to be shared with the world.

And through this fire, Jaco’s Boxing, MMA + Fitness was born.  This brand new, 8,000 square foot, mega fitness center was founded to show Sarasota and Manatee county the impact that boxing fitness can have on the lives of the citizens of our community.  By creating a boxing sanctuary that not only propelled the sport but also encouraged better health and wellness, Jaco’s Boxing has become the leader in sport fitness training and is the perfect learning ground for new fighters, both men and women, of all ages.
