    What I've Learned From One Month Of Boxing

    What I've Learned From One Month Of Boxing

    Attendance and intentional practice are key.  Don't let these simple words fool you, because although they sound simple, they are not easy.  In fact, it's incredibly easy to do the opposite; be absent and train without focus and purpose. 
    I've been boxing six times per week for the past 45 days and sometime in the next 6-12 months, I will have my first amateur fight.  I'm nervous but also extremely excited about this new athletic journey.

Sam changed the way I think

Huge respect to Sam on putting on such an amazing show. Like he said in the podcast, he want his content to help people, to help student to be a better version of themselves, and he did just that. Every episode is packed with Sam’s wisdom, and he conveyed them with stories that is so entertaining that you’ll never get board.

Honestly, thank you Sam for sharing your life with us, and thank you for changing the way I think, and letting me be a better version of myself.
