Today we’d like to introduce you to Amberle Zuerlein.
Hi Amberle, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
I threw my first punch in 2016 and have not stopped since. What started as a stress release has become my business, mission, passion, and obsession. Boxing provides mental, emotional, and physical well-being unlike anything else. Men often times cry after throwing punches, women rid themselves of any insecurities they arrived with, and all leave feeling empowered.
While you’re boxing, it’s only you and your inner strength coming to the surface. My sobriety journey has also led me to live my best life. Going on 600+ days!
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Absolutely not. I started as a Coach at a gym where boxing didn’t really fit in. Then into a massive 7500sgft space doing CrossFit and boxing with a business partner a week after the COVID shutdowns.
As you know, we’re big fans of Empower Boxing. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
‘Boxing should be accessible to everyone. We all have a fight inside of us. Come find your fight, work through whatever shit you got going on, and take a better you out into the world.’
A massive gap exists in the boxing gym spectrum between fitness boxing and true-fight gyms. We removed the intimidation factor of walking into a fight gym, keeping proper technique, and bringing our training expertise while bringing the fun vibe of a fitness boxing studio into our space.
In group classes (on day one), you will throw on focus mitts, as well as hold with your partner, accelerating the number of boxing skills you’ll learn and building community in the process. The 45-minute classes, composed of heavy bags, mitts, and conditioning, will help you hone in on your boxing skills while also giving you a killer workout.
We also offer 1:1 training if group classes aren’t people’s thing or if they want to step into the ring one day. Our Coaches are all current or former fighters so you’ll get proper boxing technique. No matter if it’s your first time or you’re an experienced fighter, Empower Boxing will empower you to become your best self and find your fight.
(Open gym hours are offered if the class offering doesn’t meet individuals’ schedules.)
Are there any apps, books, podcasts, blogs, or other resources you think our readers should check out?
Set me for success by reading and listening to Dave Ramsey (to this day, I still really don’t use credit cards). Listen to Blinkist nonstop for tidbits on entrepreneurial advice/guidance and self-development to identify which books I would like to take a deeper dive into. Nerd out on Retraining the Brain, UnF*uck Your Brain, The Body Keeps the Score, Evolve Your Brain, etc.
