Three Workouts to Improve Your Boxing Game

At Epic Wealth Management in New Jersey, Robert Gill helps his clients achieve their unique financial goals for their families and businesses. When he finds time away form his professional duties and charitable work throughout New Jersey, Robert Gill pursues boxing and fitness.

Boxing in the ring is roughly 20 percent aerobic and 80 percent anaerobic. The discipline demands both stamina and agility, requiring good fighters to be well-rounded athletes. To improve your boxing skills, consider adding one or more of these intense non-boxing exercises to your training regimen.

1. Power lifting with barbells – While focusing on proper form to avoid injuries, add heavy deadlifts, squats, and bench press sets to your workout routine. These three big exercises will improve strength and stability in your legs, glutes, core, chest, and arms.

2. Variations on jumping rope – To improve footwork and agility, practice double unders, criss-crosses, and other challenging styles of jumping rope.

3. High intensity cardiovascular intervals – Whether you favor the treadmill, the stationary bike, or other cardio machines, add intense intervals to your training. Move at your normal pace for one minute, then sprint for 15 to 20 seconds. Repeat these intervals as many times as you are able, gradually working up to sessions of approximately 12 intervals.

Clara Maass Brings Invaluable Health Services to Seniors' Doorsteps

Robert Gill, New Jersey business owner, serves as president of Epic Wealth Management. Alongside his work in the financial sector, Robert Gill sits on the board of trustees for New Jersey's Clara Maass Medical Center.

Clara Maass Medical Center created the Wellness Assessment Van for Elders (WAVE) program to bring preventative health services to seniors in their own communities. Medicare entitles senior citizens to a free wellness checkup each year, but some individuals lack transportation or access to these essential services.

Clara Maass and WAVE bring physicians and nurses directly to seniors in their community groups and private residences. Patients receive an examination, appropriate tests, and relevant wellness information to help them stay healthy. As part of a regular healthcare routine, these preventative services help seniors live better, longer.

If you live in New Jersey, it is easy to bring WAVE to your community center or local seniors group. To get in touch with WAVE, call 973-450-2528.

Saint Peter’s Prep Welcomes Academically Exceptional Young Men

As the president of Epic Wealth Management, Robert Gill, New Jersey business owner, maintains the financial portfolios of more than 800 local clients. Alongside his demanding role in the financial world, Robert Gill supports education in New Jersey through generous donations to the state’s best schools. Among others, he contributes to scholarship funds at Saint Peter’s Prep.

Though it is a Jesuit school, Saint Peter’s Prep welcomes young men from a variety of backgrounds, provided they meet the school’s rigorous academic requirements. To be considered for admission, incoming freshmen must first complete the COOP exam, administered by the local Archdiocese. Students must also furnish an official academic transcript, which should provide grades for at least the sixth and seventh grades as well as the first term of their current school year.

Incoming freshmen must also furnish at least one teacher recommendation form. Saint Peter’s uses these evaluations to judge the character and scholastic aptitude of each potential student. Once these materials are in order, students will also need to complete the official application and accompanying personal essay.
