Ahleah, like a few other badass females at 3rd Street, started boxing to get in shape for a wedding! 👰🏻 But that was enough to get her hooked. Now she’s #3rdstreettribe.

How did you get into boxing and how did you find yourself at 3rd Street?

“I had never been athletic. Getting in shape for my wedding was an ordeal. However, the only enjoyable part to the circuit classes was the 3 minute heavy bag round. When I relocated to San Francisco I happened to move in near the Third Street Boxing Gym. After the beginners course I was hooked.”

What's the best part about boxing? Why do you train?

“Boxing provides me with the feeling that I am in charge, and am capable of being the strong woman I hope to be. I train, to keep myself in shape, both body and mind.”

Any words of advice or encouragement for newbies?

“Practice, and don't give up. We have all been there and are willing to help you grow and succeed.”
