Mark Foley – Owner, General Manager, Maintenance
Mark has been involved in boxing for over 30 years and an avid fitness nut for even longer. Starting in high school playing football, Mark learned that a little hard work can bring you a long way.
In his late 20's he fell in love with traditional strength training, working with a good friend and bodybuilder who opened his eyes to the world of heavy lifting. Since then, Mark doesn't know how to not learn something new, constantly researching and testing new exercises, boxing drills, and programs.
If you're in need of some motivation, look no further. You'll feel like you're fighting for the world title under Mark's direction, whether it be hitting a bag, pad work, body drills, or one of his specially designed programs.
Mark truly is a one man army: working with the female fight team here at CoreBox; assisting in the athletic development program for high school athletes; is our membership coordinator; and is the main reason the gym is spotless and running well every day.
Pretty much if you need anything, from memberships to a mop, or pad work to class descriptions, Mark will know what's going on.
Michael Foley – Owner, Director of CORE Function
Michael's first introduction to the gym came when he was just 9 years old with his father, and instantly he fell in love with the benefits strength training brought to his in-game performance. Starting working in gyms at 15 years old, Michael has literally been in the gym business his entire life. At 17 he was fortunate enough to have met his mentor, who opened his eyes to the world of functional training with one simple question: Why sit down to lift weight up?
Since then, Michael has worked with clients of all ages and abilities, ranging from 4-83 years old including populations ranging from Division 1 athletes to geriatrics and professional fighters to clients with neuromuscular disorders (i.e. MS, Parkinson's, etc.). Combining his knowledge within the field of training and applying it to real life movements, Michael has blended his unique form of functional training to be able to create individualized training programs for each client he sees.
Michael was a high school hockey, football, and track (javelin & discus) athlete, later competing at the collegiate level in hockey. He's still an avid boxer and golfer, and references his earliest childhood memories as boxing in his family's home basement with his father
