I started boxing 9 years ago when I broke my foot in Muay Thai (kickboxing) training and it was basically my only option to be active. I was 25.
I couldn’t run, jump, nothing. I never fought or even had any interest in fighting Muay Thai, I just loved to hit and kick the sh*t out of things. But when I started boxing, I learnt more about defense, movement and the chess game. That’s when I fell in love with the sport and decided I needed to fight to test myself. I was pretty terrible haha, but I guess I wanted it more than the other girl, and I won! There, my addiction began.
I soon realized that just “wanting it more” wasn’t always going to win me fights, and put every spare minute into drilling technique and perfecting the art. Because I was constantly learning, engaged and having fun, the time would fly by before I could realize how exhausted I was… and that was how I ended up in the best shape of my life. And if I wasn’t training, sparring, or fighting, I was teaching boxing to all my clients in the gym that I co-owned in Australia, who were excited by my journey and now also becoming addicted. Watching their confidence grow as they learnt a skill they never thought that THEY could do, that only the most bad ass humans on the planet would be capable of… that was such a reward for me and why I love coaching so much!
At 28 I had an opportunity to move to USA for modeling, so I packed up my life and headed across the pond… as a model on paper, but really because I wanted to see how far I could go if I took boxing seriously, and USA is the melting pot of the top boxing athletes from all over the world and the best place to be exposed to such a variety of styles. Even though I hadn’t started until very late in life, I never had any doubt that I could go far in this sport.
I'm so excited to create my own app and share my passion with everyone, I'm so glad you're here and can't wait to see your progress!
