I have worked out (running, lifting weights, elliptical, etc.) on and off for most of my life. I would get motivated to work out for a couple months at a time and then would become bored and lose interest – primarily because I wasn’t seeing any results; I would find any excuse not to workout. I’m 5’6, and typically weighed 155 up to 168 lbs at any given time. I come from an athletic, physically fit family, and I never thought my “body type,” could look like I wanted it to. I joined TITLE Boxing at 55 West about 10 months ago, and it has truly changed my life. After just a couple of classes with Mark and Oscar, I was hooked. They were motivating and inspiring – they made me want to give my all to every class. I made some small adjustments to my diet (more lean protein, less carbs, not no carbs) and went to five or six boxing classes a week. This wasn’t easy. I work 60-65 hours a week, but my health and fitness needed to be a priority. In just a short period of time, I saw results and felt amazing. I wanted to go to class – I didn’t dread working out like I always had before. In just three months, I went from 160 lbs to 138 lbs. I went from a size 6/8 to a size 0/2. This change in the way I looked and the way I felt after every class kept me coming back.
On Saturday, I turned 42 years old and this is by far the leanest I have ever been. I constantly get compliments from people half my age about my arms. When they ask me how I do it, I tell them Title Boxing. I have been holding steady at 135 lbs for six months and have no intention of going back to the old Karen. I am physically and mentally happier than I have been in a long time. For anyone who doesn’t think they can do it, they can. The instructors at TITLE will help you get you started, but the rest is up to you.
