Who else has found themselves missing being active and playing sports? As Melissa has found, boxing is a great way to re-energize your workout regimin! 🥊 #3rdstreettribe

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

“Serendipity! I was talking with a coworker about how I missed training and playing sports and he recommended I try boxing. When I got home that evening a friend asked if I wanted to go to the free beginner class at 3rd st with her. I have been hooked ever since.”

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

“Boxing requires you to be present. You can’t be thinking about all the other stuff or you might get knocked in the head. You need to be aware of your body and your partner. Also the workouts have helped me to hit my overall fitness goals. I have dropped about 30lbs since coming here.”

Any words of advice or encouragement for newbies?

“I definitely felt like I had no idea what I was doing when I first started. The instructors and the other members are amazing at helping you learn and not judging as you figure it out.”
