“Gratitude opens the door to the power, the creativity, and the wisdom of the universe”

Deepak Chopra

Christy has always been someone I can count on. She consistently shows support to others in countless ways. I’ve been helped with many aspects of life including education, time-management, and health. We spent many hours together both inside and outside the ring and she always shared her support and knowledge to me. No matter what I was working through, she would offer an ear to listen and any other tools of support I needed. She truly is someone I can depend on and I’m thankful for the guidance through the years. 

Dean is someone who helps people everyday. I know that whenever I’m struggling with something I can talk to him about it and he helps to see it from a different point of view. He’s helped me with finding clarity in my struggles and figuring out the underlying reasons for them. He has immense knowledge that he is always offering to share and he always has a way of reassuring your thoughts and feelings. I thank him for always being able to help me see what is best for me and help me fight through my doubts.

Your generosity is immense - generous with your time, your knowledge, and your spirit. Thank you for the inspiration to be a better person!


My story is simple. I wanted to do a half tough mudder race last year and they took the time to help me train for it. They gave me manageable workouts that challenged me. In following them I was able to finish the Tough Mudder. Since then I work with Christy and Dean and have lost 45lbs. I’m becoming mentally, physically, and changing my lifestyle to be healthier with their help!


I just wanted to take a moment to say how amazing Christina and Dean are.  They are all about their community and helping individuals and families grow.  If it is in health, fitness or financial assistance (and many more) they will listen to your needs and help guide you to your goal.  They have become more family than just another member of the community.  I am so thankful boxing brought our families together.

I am forever thankful for the deep thought and care that Christina puts into her conversations and relationships. When talking through any kind of struggle, Christina is able to make you feel heard while also carefully guiding you to a place where you can brainstorm solutions and next steps. I am a better person because of her friendship and and her willingness to share some emotional labor.


The idea of “a lifestyle change” is daunting. Over a few years I had settled into a collection of habits that were generally not conducive to feeling good about myself physically or mentally.  Periodically I made an attempt to get back into running or fit into the box of old clothes, but I’ve always taken the all-or-nothing approach, and I couldn’t seem to change that.  I approached Christy and Dean because I needed someone else’s plan, another way, something else for a number of reasons. Here are a few of those reasons: I couldn’t put my kid on my shoulders, I didn’t want to get dressed in the morning because my clothes didn’t fit, my son wanted me to run with him, and I didn’t feel like it, I was just plain tired, I refused to be in pictures with my family, I felt generally weak and unmotivated, I have boxes of clothes that don’t fit, and I berated myself for eating certain foods.


Christy and Dean have guided me in sneaking in some healthy habits. It’s working for me. I feel good most days and I can see how the little things really do add up.  


But here’s the thing: I don’t feel like I’m on a plan. I don’t feel constrained by rules or numbers.  There is no end or starting over.  Contrary to past attempts at living a healthy lifestyle,  I don’t have that feeling that I am enduring a drastic unsustainable change.  There was always desperation to that approach – like, how long can I possibly maintain this?


Working with Christy and Dean, some new good habits snuck into my daily routine.  I don’t have to remind myself to do it.  I feel like I am missing something if I don’t.  These little things add up and I feel good... But I’ve just begun. 


I have Christy and Dean to thank for helping me get here, and for inspiring me to maintain what I have accomplished so far for me and for my family.

Forever grateful.  I can't say thank you enough to express how grateful I am for Dean and Christy coming into my life. They are so inspiring and allow people to become the best versions of themselves. Christy has taught me that you don't always have to be strong, you are allowed to break down as long as you pick yourself back up and keep moving forward. Dean and Christy's passion to make a difference in the world is unbelievable and they have put their heart and souls into creating an amazing organization. Watching them do what they love and making a difference is an amazing experience. I hope one day to have as much passion as they have. 


Thanks! Gratitude sent.
