Cappy’s Boxing Gym trains Boxers of all types. The Boxers have various options: they can train to get in shape, increase confidence and decrease stress, learn Boxing Fundamentals , compete or cross train. And they can train to take on Personal Matches.
Recently, Local Small Business Owner, “Rock” asked Cappy’s Boxing Gym for help in training for a big Personal Match. Rock assessed the Personal Match as a 9 on a scale of 1 – 10, with 10 being an extreme challenge. Thus began her training for a Title Match.
Rock’s family had taken a financial and emotional hit. She was close to tears when communicating this, though she said tears were rare for her – usually a sign that she needed the emotional outlet. Anxiousness was not normally part of her day to day experience. However, she did say that a twenty year + marriage had taught her a lot on this front. Her main goal in taking on this Title Match was keeping up her strength and fortitude to help her family get through the hard times.
First thing she did was put the family on a strict budget and schedule her training in at the gym so that didn’t fall by the wayside. Rock began to appreciate her own sense of independence and the strength she had gained from taking risks. This helped her to better understand she did have the strength to see her family through the hard times. She depended on the upbeat and positive focus at Cappy’s Boxing Gym. Keeping to a regular workout calmed her down and helped her understand that things were not as out of control as she had thought.
Rock came to realize that simply taking her stance, no matter if she were standing in line at the grocery story or was in the gym, boosted her sense of being in control. Now, three months since she started training for her Personal Match, she feels confident that the crisis is past and she is, once again, where she wants to be emotionally and financially.
