As the Masters unfolds this week, Angel Cabrera sits in an Argentine prison. “A lot of kids grow up without a role model and make some bad decisions, their anger within them takes over,” said Charlie Epps, a Houston golf pro who has a father-son relationship with Cabrera.news.yahoo.com
Boxing and strength training part of new Ann Arbor gym
ANN ARBOR, MI -- Chicago native Angel Cabrera used boxing as an activity to help him stay out of trouble while living on the city’s south side. His experience training and working at boxing facilities led him to open his own gym, Optimum Fitness Training at 4477 Jackson Road. Before opening, Cabrera worked as a trainer at Title Boxing Club in Ann Arbor and would rent spaces at various gyms to offer private training. Optimum Fitness offers personal training for all ages, boxing classes, nutrition coaching, weight loss training, post-physical therapy rehabilitation and strength training, cardio, agility, conditioning and in the future, yoga and pilates, Cabrera said. “We’re considered more of an elite type of personal training gym because we’re going to be working with sport-specific athletes,” Cabrera said.mlive.com
