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

β€œI was looking for an outlet to release stress. A friend had mentioned 3rd Street boxing gym and I decided to give it a try. I loved it since day one.”

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

β€œI love that boxing not only challenges you physically, but mentally as well. You have to be fully present when training. I train because it de-stresses me, challenges me mentally and physically, and empowers me to become a stronger person.”

Any words of advice or encouragement for newbies?

β€œEven though I have been coming to 3rd Street for over a year, I sometimes feel like a newbie. There’s so much to learn! However, over time, you do get better, the numbers/punches start to make sense, and you are overall more coordinated. Little by little those baby steps can take you a long way!”
