Popular Female-Only Boxing Studio in Phoenix Energized by Local Entrepreneurs
Jabz Boxing announced today new ownership for the Tempe location with local residents Jen Heierman and Richard Reich.
The team’s prior experience positions them for success as they become the new owners. Jen has an extensive background in the culinary industry serving 10 years as a chef in the U.S. Airforce and has always enjoyed fitness, while Richard brings a lengthy background in business. Combined, their experience equips them well for their new roles.
Known for its full-body circuit style workout that utilizes boxing inspired exercises designed specifically for all women, the studio is located at 8707 S Priest Dr. in Tempe.
“I’ve found my forever job,” said Heierman. “I’ve always had a desire to own my own business, and being able to empower women in our local community is an opportunity Richard and I are really looking forward to. After seeing the results firsthand as a member, I knew that taking over the Tempe location and helping others achieve their fitness goals was the right move for us.”
Committed to cultivating an empowering fitness community for women, Jabz Boxing offers intense boxing-inspired, full-body workouts to help clients achieve their fitness goals. With 16 women to a class, Jabz classes are kept small to encourage a positive workout experience. All classes are led by dedicated, certified instructors who offer one-on-one support for all members.
“Jen and Richard are the ideal entrepreneurs that we are looking for to be a part of the Jabz franchise family,” said Kimberlee White, CEO and co-founder of Jabz Boxing. “With their enthusiasm for changing lives we have full confidence they will build an empowering community for women in the area.”
Since beginning franchising in 2013, Jabz Boxing grew to nearly 20 Arizona locations before deciding to expand nationally in 2019. Since the end of last year, they have opened locations in Voorhees, N.J. and Ridley Park, Penn., and have recently signed agreements to open in Aston, Penn., Talleyville, Del. and Havertown, Penn. Jabz Boxing plans to increase its nationwide footprint by entering key markets such as Denver, Dallas/Fort Worth and Las Vegas, where it will provide women with an empowering community and energetic workout experience.
As the fitness studio concept continues to rapidly expand into key markets across the United States, Jabz Boxing is actively seeking qualified franchisees who are passionate about fitness and entrepreneurship to join its system and bring the Jabz culture of female empowerment to their local communities.
