Benny ‘The Jet’ Swanson


Benny Swanson purchased Panther Gym in 2001. After working to overcome great hardship in his teenage years to become a professional boxer, Benny went on to have a successful career but still battled intense rage and deeply seated emotional demons. He not only needed an outlet to release his energy in a productive manner, but he needed his story to be shared with others; he needed to be an influencer, an inspiration. After enduring the early struggles of business ownership as well as maintaining his role as a father of two young girls, Benny has made something truly meaningful from a collection of punching bags, gloves and a ring.
