Today we’d like to introduce you to Mike Reeder.
Mike, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
BoxFit started as a bootcamp in Morley Field. At the same time, I started Rock Steady Boxing Downtown San Diego, a program designed to slow the progression of Parkinson’s through boxing training. The goal was always to have our own space so that we could have both the Parkinson’s and non-Parkinson’s folks under one roof. After searching for a space of our own for a year, we opened BoxFit in North Park and have been open a year. An amazing byproduct of the brick and mortar space is that many of our non-Parkinson’s clients now volunteer at our Parkinson’s boxing classes. The community we have built in a little under a year is what I am most proud of.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has really been a smooth ride. What was really helpful was that we had a built-in clientele through our Rock Steady Boxing Downtown San Diego program and the BoxFit bootcamp.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with BoxFit – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
BoxFit cultivates a passion for fitness and boxing by creating challenging, original, and safe classes for all fitness levels. Most people who come to our boxing gym have never boxed before. Even if someone has never laced up a pair of boxing gloves or thrown a single punch in their life, BoxFit helps them uncover their body’s power and potential. I think the idea of opening up the boxing gym experience to everyone, while still sticking to the core principals of boxing training, really sets us apart. We’ve had professional boxers working alongside beginners and what new people always say is that they are amazed at how welcoming our community is. From 60-80-year-old Parkinson’s fighters to professional boxers, everyone is helping each other out on this journey to get better. I think, in essence, what I’m most proud of, is this diverse community of people striving to feel better.
What were you like growing up?
I was a very hyper kid who never took naps much to my mom’s chagrin.
