How did you get into the fitness and boxing industry?
My fitness career started as a personal trainer while in college and eventually crossed over to group fitness a few years later. I was inspired to teach kickboxing through Tae Bo videos and watching other amazing instructors teach at my gym. I loved the music, intensity and rhythmic aspect of it. I got my boxing certification and eventually started teaching a few classes a week.
How do you describe your training style?
What I love most about boxing is that it’s empowering and accessible. Whether you do contact or non-contact, musically driven or just sparring, 10 years old or 80 years old, there is space for everyone. You will always come out feeling stronger after a workout.
