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

“I first tried kicking boxing in university looking for a way to stay in shape, and almost immediately became addicted. It’s one of the only workouts I’ve stuck with for the past few years. When I moved to San Francisco I tried a ton of boxing gyms and 3rd Street was by far my favorite.”

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

“For me, health and fitness are a priority and boxing is a great full body workout. It’s intense and fast paced which is great for cardio but strength and conditioning are also a huge part of it. It’s also nice to know how to actually through a punch.”

Any words of advice or encouragement for newbies?

“Bring a friend with you your first few times so you can do the partner work with them until you are comfortable with the gym. Everyone is really welcoming but it can be intimidating at first.”
