Maleenee has been part of the crew since Bonnie taught our beginners class, and Ed would shout “ahh turn it upp!” in class 😛 #3rdstreettribe

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

“I tried my first class on ClassPass never having boxed before. I loved the instructors I met (shoutout to Ed and Bonnie) and got hooked so I bought a membership!”

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

“The sweat, the variety, and the feeling of accomplishment after each workout. I've been coming for about 2 years now and still every class is different and challenging. I used to dance and it feels similar because of the technique and coordination, but now I sweat a lot more and punch things.”

Any words of advice or encouragement for newbies?

“Everyone started as a newbie so everyone around you gets it and is happy to help. Just keep coming and you'll see and feel the improvement.”
