If you’ve ever seen Anne train, you know she’s a beast!! She inspires the gym each time she comes in 🤜🤛 #3rdstreettribe

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

“My husband is a strength coach and he thought that boxing would be a good way for me to get my conditioning in, and he suggested 3rd Street. I stayed because of the really good coaches like Alan and Rob and Dave. Also, Paul Wade is a stand up guy.”

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

“I think the best part of boxing is how difficult it is. While that doesn't sound so good, it means that I'm always learning and always struggling to improve. When I'm struggling, I'm uncomfortable, and that means I'm growing. I didn't really participate in any sports as a kid, and it's very hard to learn a sport as an adult. I was 46 when I came to 3rd Street. In boxing you have to do so many things correctly at the same time. That is a constant challenge for me. Also, 3rd Street is such a great place to be able to come to after a rough day at work and get your mind off of whatever made it rough and just be in the moment. Being in the moment is an excellent cure for almost anything. I train because it makes my day better and, most of all, I love being strong.”

Any words of advice or encouragement for newbies?

“My advice to anyone starting is to keep trying and listen to your coach and don't give up if you get frustrated at first.”
