When I first walked into Boxing Inc. over a year ago, I knew it was time to get to work. I knew I was an athlete deep down, but it had been quite a while since I was dedicated to a sport, and at that time, I wasn’t even in good shape. I hated the feeling of that first workout beating me up, so I got to work. I made boxing a regular part of my routine, and now I cannot imagine my days without it. The dedicated trainers, who are even better people than they are trainers, came alongside me to help me get better. They fueled the fire in me that wanted to get down to the nitty-gritty details of technique, speed, and power. I didn’t just lose 25 lbs and keep it off. That was only the beginning. I gained a new skill and passion. I gained a family. You’ll find me not just in class anymore, but in the ring sparring as well. And to anyone who has even the slightest interest in putting on a pair of gloves to throw some punches, don’t even hesitate to start today. You won’t regret it. I certainly don’t. I’m more motivated than ever, always pushing myself to be that fighter I now know I am.
