“I love coming to Beyond the Gloves because it’s fun; we work out and talk about emotions and how to deal with some negative emotions and thoughts. Georgie is a great, fun, encouraging person. I can relate to her, and she can relate to us, which is comforting. We always get to talk, which helps us gain confidence and happiness in who we are. Since meeting Georgie and coming to boxing, I have been able to control my emotions more and not get sad at small things or things that aren’t worth getting upset about. She has helped me with my diet, exercise, feeling confident in my body and helped me through tough things to do with family and friendships.”

This builds resilience, self-esteem and confidence and promotes body positivity and mental fitness. This results in increased school attendance, motivation, meaningful connections and peer support and improved relationships.
