For 15 years the hit factory has been the leader of Boxing in Bendigo. Providing support to Youth in town giving them a space to come train, learn, build and better themselves.
I took boxing from being frowned upon in Schools in Bendigo to becoming a tool used for kids in discipline, self-confidence or just fitness.
In competition we were well regarded as one of the Elite gyms producing many State and National champions.
In all sports you see coaches burn out, to carry on at this level you need to be 100% committed and I feel that I have lost that edge, that passion to continue at the highest level takes.
Will I be back? I don’t know! Right now it’s a NO, but I will take time off and see what the future brings.
