fitness Sep 25, 2020

I’ve been asked to speak and write quite a bit about being in midlife and yet still being in beast mode boxing!

 

I’ve been boxing since 1999 and the thought of stopping due to age has never occurred to me. If anything, I’ve become more inspired to find new challenges and continue pushing myself.

Why Your Gym Needs Custom Gear

Your studio is unique. It has a special something that drew your members to it. Maybe it’s a piece of equipment you have that no one else offers, or your wide selection of weights.

by Gail Gensler

 

“Why?”

 

It’s a question I get asked a lot, and, if you have also embarked on a fitness journey, one I’m sure you’ve gotten as well.
