I came across this great article on Lena Dunham’s digital magazine, Lenny, called “Knock It Out” written by Jowita Bydlowska. This article is a good starting point for our blog as we share articles, anecdotes, experiences and stories here at Kali Active.  The article has so many parallels as to how Kali Active got started so I thought I would share the link.

So many women who face career, financial, and personal challenges are drawn to boxing not just for the intense sweat session but as a form of therapy. A workout a little bit more intense than yoga is needed to feel more alive and/or it just feels good to punch the sh*t out of something! 

This is a great read for anyone who is looking for an alternative workout to yoga and maybe thinking of trying boxing.  Thanks Lenny!
