How Chandler is Defining Her Destiny
Share this blog post
The TITLE Boxing Club National Member Spotlight is featuring Chandler Martin, from TITLE Boxing Club Cool Springs. Here is her story:
“Strong to me is a word that most people use in the context of how much weight you can lift or how much heartache you can bear. For me, strong is seeing yourself as beautiful, powerful, and worthy… and not letting anyone or anything in this world tell you differently! Each of us are made strong and beautiful, but often times we don’t realize it until someone else brings it out of us. @titlecoolsprings has done that for me.
When I entered TITLE 4 months ago, I was excited, determined and terrified. I had played sports growing up and have always been a competitor, but at this point in my life I couldn’t run a complete mile and was literally forcing myself to go on a walk.
Each of us are made strong and beautiful, but often times we don’t realize it until someone else brings it out of us.
I had the joy of starting this journey with my best friend and mentor. The same mentor who had been telling me time and time again my worth and value and how strong and beautiful I was made to be. It wasn’t until this journey of determination that I started realizing these things were true. Waking up at 4am to hit the bag before school or work. Eating to fuel my body instead of eating to comfort my soul. I have pushed myself at TITLE harder than I’ve ever pushed myself before. And I’m enjoying every minute of it.
It’s not because of the amount of weights I can lift, how many pushups I do or how long I can hold a plank. It’s because the environment of TITLE Boxing Club Cool Springs is so contagious that I was infected with a love for people and a love for helping people realize the STRONG that they already are.”
Thank you Chandler for #definingyourstrong and conquering your goals with us!
