If you’ve got non-boxers who want to use the club to train, how do you explain the effects it will have on their bodies?

"I explain it based on their background and experiences. If it is a cyclist, I might explain the benefit of getting upright, using more thoracic mobility, and being able to breathe better. I look at where that person’s background is and what movement language they speak then I connect the dots to boxing."
"Boxing isn't about being mean or mindlessly punching faces. It's about building confidence in yourself by pushing past limits that you thought you had with a community that wants you to succeed in every aspect of life."

"We're a community oriented gym. We don't come here to show off. We come to have fun and to sharpen our skills together."

"The day of your match you enter the ring alone, but every step up to that point is with a team. We train, drill, run, and spar together. You have a village of support outside of those ropes, and you always have the best coaches in your corner."

Candace Alai (Coach)

USAB Level 1 Coach
B.S. Integrative Physiology (2010)
Lagree (2018)
Bar Method (2016)

Candace planned to become a doctor but after getting her degree in Physiology, taking the MCAT and working in a medical clinic for a year, decided she was more interested in helping people improve their health and fitness. She came to Colorado to compete in cross country and track for the best team in the nation at the University of Colorado at Boulder. This experience and her course of study, required her to learn about the physiology of training, the necessary self-awareness of an athlete and nutrition.  She graduated with an Integrative Physiology degree then took additional courses in biology to pursue a career in medicine. Meanwhile she learned that her greatest passion was helping people get healthy and stay healthy. Over the last 3 years she has develed into learning more about the function of the body and mind through various continuing learning courses and certifications.  She has a wide range of knowledge about the movement and mechanics of the body, training techniques and the nutrition required to perform at your best.
