How Box it Out came to be…
Hi I’m Deanna, owner of Box It Out.
I joined Box it Out back in 2012, and I loved it! The sessions were fast paced, challenging and ever changing, and I fell in love with boxing. Yeah yeah, sounds corny.. But you’ll understand when you try it.
During my time training with Box it Out, I lost two dress sizes and became so involved with boxing, working out in the gym and all things fitness that I became a qualified personal trainer & group instructor. I learnt how to feel confident about who I am, what my body can do and how great movement can be.
I was invited to take my first Box it Out class in 2014, and boy, was I nervous. I thought my first session was horrible – I felt like I wasn’t doing enough and I’m pretty sure that I talked for the whole hour. The. Whole. Hour.
Turns out, I got lots of positive feedback! The people I previously trained with, actually enjoyed it! BEST DAY EVER.
So I continued taking more and more classes and ended up taking over the business in 2015. I was absolutely petrified, but I made that jump and I can proudly say that I have some of the best group fitness classes in Adelaide. Yep big statement, I know.
I know my classes are different because I don’t focus on body shape, size or weight loss at my sessions, but instead on strength and confidence. Every single person deserves to feel strong and confident, and changes to weight and body shape flow from this. Fitness is a feeling, it’s a habit and it cannot be determined by a number. Shape, size & weight do not always determine how fit you are. Strength & confidence trump all.
If you are looking for a challenge, then give Box it Out a try! It won’t be easy, but nothing that’s worthwhile ever is.
Too often I have seen people come along to a session, and they are scared back to the couch and a life of inactivity. Box it Out is no baby step, but with the right introduction and commitment, it could become your new fitness lifestyle.
You need to find what suits you and your lifestyle: whether it be walking, running half marathons, crossfit, body building or boxing with me, I want you to find your best self. Your best, strong, confident self.
