GJWB For Real
Girls that wanna box for real will soon be a community page, blog, and support system for competitive boxers. Whether its the latest boxing technology available, a question about nutrition or the best ways to attract funding and sponsorship we will address all these relevant topics. It will also be a certification where female boxers can officially become part of the team and bring these classes and programs to their gym or community. GJWB equipment and clothing also launching soon!
GJWB For Fun
Girls that wanna box for fun is already happening! Always wanted to box? What is holding you back!? Learning the sweet science at any age is the fastest way to get in shape and keep your mind challenged. You can take classes or 12-week fast tracks at Clancy’s Boxing Academy here in Toronto the home of GJWB. Remember you don’t have to get hit to get fit, but that doesn’t mean you can’t train like a fighter!
GJWB For Teens
GJWB launched a #protectthepretty Teen project whereby amateur & professional athletes, other female boxers and notable personalities in sport will go to high schools and elementary schools across the city to teach young girls how to ‘protect the pretty’ through boxing and all the positives associated with it. Our mission is to give these girls confidence, keep them in shape, breakdown gender stereotypes and allow them into a world not always open to them but is so beneficial. “Protecting the pretty” not only refers to keeping your hands up while boxing to protect your face, but for young girls, it means protecting their privacy from a social media perspective, protecting their bodies by keeping them healthy with proper nutrition and the body image of what a strong confident girl can be. Our first GJWB session was held last year whereby 40+ girls came out from Lawrence Park High-School for an afternoon field trip, and the outcome and responses were phenomenal. As a result we will continue to gain support so that we can run these seminars in schools across the province in 2015 to discuss the sport, living a healthy lifestyle, and feature “Girl Power” talks that touch on mental health, bullying, positive energy, and empowerment through boxing and sport.
