How did you get involved in boxing?

A friend suggested boxing as a way to lose weight and to get fit. One of the local boxing gyms was offering a ladies boxing course, and I figured that it would be a great way to get introduced to the sport as I’ll admit I did find boxing a little intimidating.


How did it feel the first time you were punched in the face?

Surprised, then frustration. And this was only in a lighter sparring session. Frustration at myself for dropping my hands enough for my friend to find a way in!


How does boxing enhance your life?

I’m still on a long weight loss and get fit journey, boxing offers a totally different body and mind workout, the gym is not for me, I need mental stimulation as well as the laughing that boxing provides, once you’ve learnt the basics, there is so much more to learn and to practice.


What’s your favourite punch?

Straight - all the power


What’s one thing you love about boxing?

The sound your gloves make when you hit the pads correctly.
