Darren joined up last year and quickly became a regular in our mid-day and early evening classes. Thanks for being part of the #3rdstreettribe!

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

“I recently moved to SF from Toronto and needed a new gym. After doing Crossfit for a few years, I wanted to try something new. I’m a fan of MMA and thought boxing would be a great way to get in shape and learn some of the fundamentals of fighting.”

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

“I train because it’s fun and it’s important to stay in shape. The best part is watching yourself improve after putting in the hard work.”

Any words of advice or encouragement for newbies?

“The most important thing to do is just show up. Nobody ever regrets going to the gym. Don’t over think it, just go.”
