Lynn Calder Boxing

Winning is important but the will to prepare is vital. Success comes from dedicated practice.

About me

I had broken my ankle and wanted to resume my fitness training; improve my weight management, get rid of some aggression, learn new skills and be more disciplined- I chose boxing.

The only way to keep moving, forward, is having something to work towards (a goal). Our best successes, come after our greatest disappointments.

Set goals, not for the rewards BUT in what you become, in trying......

Sport naturally delivers a growth mindset and helps me in sharing and relating with others.

I do also have both an academic: engineering and musical: bagpiping, background, so can help inspire and motivate, across most fields, in detailing my experiences.

In the past I've been prone to forcing things in aspiring for the best, trying to "reach a perfect state" always searching, however in my learning, from such failed attempts, it's far more beautiful when the performance joins the result, naturally and harmoniously.
