Episode 19 - Gemma Price, Boxing Pretty
Joining me on Episode 19 is Gemma Price, a woman who truly hit rock bottom when she was trapped in a toxic and abusive relationship. Gemma used a chance encounter with a punch bag as the inspiration to fight back in epic style to set up the Boxing Pretty club that empowers, builds confidence and supports women and girls.
We explore what boxing did for her mental health and the amazing response from women across Cardiff as she set the club up.
It’s so much more than a boxing club, it’s a safe space in the community and has now been recognised by Cardiff Council and Welsh Government who have funded a complete renovation with their Llanrumney base fast becoming a modern training centre for aspiring boxers, both male and female.
She is also working on a host of projects there that we will return to in the future for sure.
Gemma’s story is harrowing but ultimately inspirational and a great example of how you can bounce back from the worst life can throw at you.
