Boxing and Fitness for Women

When Life Beats you up, Punch Life Back in the Face


What’s the big idea about women taking kickboxing classes across the country? Why are more and more women taking self defense classes and private lessons to learn the art of self defense? Women’s boxing first appeared in the Olympic Games at a demonstration bout in 1902. For most of the 20th century, however, it was banned in most nations. Its revival was pioneered by the Swedish Amateur Boxing Association, which sanctioned events for women in 1988. The British Amateur Boxing Association sanctioned its first boxing competition for women in 1997. The first event was to be between two thirteen-year old, but one of the boxers withdrew because of hostile media attention. Four weeks later, an event was held between two sixteen-year olds. The A.I.B.A. accepted new rules for Women’s Boxing at the end of the 20th century and approved the first European Cup for Women in 1999 and the first World Championship for women in 2001. Women’s boxing was not featured at the 2008 Olympics; however, on 14 August 2009, it was announced that the International Olympic Committee’s Executive Board (EB) had approved the inclusion of women’s boxing for the Games in London in the 2012 Olympics

Never Give Up or Quit on Your Dreams

Posted in meta burn on September 12th, 2011 by admin


Good Morning and Happy Monday. Today’s message is about never quitting on yourself and your goals. Over my 34 years being blessed to be on this amazing planet I’ve seen, heard, and experienced some good times, bad times and all in between. I like to tell you a story about 2 guys who were pushed to the limit but never gave up.

A few years back I met these two guys and they were young entrepreneurs’ and very ambitious. They told me about their goals and ambitions with such passion and excitement. I could tell that the older one was the leader because he never stopped talking, but the younger one was a silent assassin with a burning desire to achieve greatness.

As we discussed their grand plans for world domination I could see many holes in their plan, but who was I to add my two cents and negative energy to their dreams. The older of the two guys had this glow about him that was contagious and inviting. He made you want to hear more about his plans and how he was going to accomplish them. He also made you really want to see him succeed.
After our last meeting, time went on and I didn’t run into the two guys or think about them until one day something attracted me to Starbucks. I don’t drink coffee too much but this morning I felt the need for caffeine. I pulled in tired and not really wanting human interaction this early in the morning. As I’m waiting on this annoying long morning caffeine line, in walks this guy with his head down and looking sad. It didn’t take me long to see that it was the older guy I had met about 6 months ago.

The only difference was he had lost his glow. I said good morning, and he replied, “Hey” I could see he was distressed and I wasn’t really into talking but when someone looks in pain I can’t help but try and help.

It didn’t take long to get a conversation going and to find out this once ambitious super excited entrepreneur had left this guys body and replaced it with someone else. I told you the line was long Right?

So I was able to do some fact finding and found out that the two guys were going through some challenges with their dreams. They had hit a few road blocks, pot holes, and detours on the highway to success. I asked if I could help, but he replied not if you can’t help me get out of this rut I’m in. I replied I just may be able if you tell me what’s going on. He went into his long sob story, which really boiled down to he had lost his excitement and was thinking about quitting on his dreams.

After sitting down and listening for about 10 minutes I offered some advice and pointed him in the direction of one of my favorite books. I also gave him my cell phone number and told him to call me if he needed to talk. I didn’t hear from him again for about 3 months then out of the blue he called.

His voice had changed back to the voice I remember when I first met him. He sounded like he found his Mojo, and was on fire with life again. I asked him what he had been up to the last few months and he told me that he went that very same day we met in Starbucks and purchased the book The Magic of Thinking Big by Dr. David J. Schwartz.

He wanted to thank me for recommending the book and helping him get his life back on track. He said that life had began to beat him down, and he had lost the ability to think big and focus on his goals and dreams. He also shared how close he and his young partner were to quitting and closing his business. He also was super excited to tell me all about the past three months and how their lives had changed.

Once their power of focus and positive energy was regained their business changed and began to succeed. He explained that the book helped them learn about the power of setting big goals, and never quitting on them no matter what the challenges are. I was so happy to hear this because I knew these guys had something special and I’m just glad I could share a few nuggets of wisdom. Sometimes when things aren’t going well we all think about quitting and giving up on our dreams, but that’s when we have to dig deep and push through the tough times.

In life we all will have to experience some tough and downright shitty times, but during those times we develop our character. You might be thinking or already guessed who this story is about, Yes It’s Mr. Nutrition and Yours Truly Coach Rahz. The book I referred to really is a personally favorite and helped me get through a very tough period in my life about 12 months ago. Yeah just 12 short months ago Breakthroughs To Fitness was at a cross road and had to make some difficult decisions. After rereading David’s book Greg and I set out to create the Best most talked about Fat Loss Studio On Long Island, and we’re proud to say the doors are open for business.

We are still running into challenges but now we know how to handle them and not to over react to them. You may be having trouble losing those last 10 or 15 pounds, Don’t Quit. You may be having challenges with your wife/husband or significant other don’t give up. You may be feeling life is beating you down and you’re alone don’t quit. When money may be tight and you’re feeling the squeeze don’t give up.

I can share my sob stories with you all day, but I choose not to because They don’t serve me or you, but what I will share is just when things seem to be at their worst they usually get better because you didn’t quit. Don’t allow yourself to play small. Dream Big, Set Huge Badass Goals and go after them with every ounce of energy you have, because what’s the alternative? living a life that Sux and you’re not happy.

Greg and I have a very Big Ambitious Goal of helping 1000 women transform their lives through health and fitness by the end of 2012. I plan on achieving that goal and I sincerely hope if you are reading this you are one of them. I’ll leave you with one of my favorite poems.

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
Edgar A. Guest
