As well as offering online fitness classes, I also wanted to add something just as important to mental health and processing this traumatic time: writing-it-out.

The legacy we leave behind is comprised of many small calculated moves just like in any classic #boxing match with a good game plan. Life is like a Boxing match; it could be beautiful and tragic, graceful and brutal, poetic and a jumbled mess of chaos all at the same time.
