Paying my Dues

'Paying my dues' - Missy Fitzwater


Motivation is almost organically produced from the 'addiction' of Boxing. The adrenaline of letting it all go in that first impact of leather on foam opens up a wave of endorphins  and when you walk out of the gym for the first time, your training bubble world will never be the same again.
